Australia won by 5 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)
13 October 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Watson to Duminy, no run, starts very full and quite wide, jabbed into the off side


Watson to Duminy, 4 leg byes, swing from Watson and it clips the pad, rather than bat, and Wade can't quite get across with a dive


Watson to Duminy, no run, into the fifth over but Duminy decides to shoulder arms outside off


Watson to Duminy, 1 run, driven up to mid-off and they just need to scurry a touch to make the single


Watson to Ingram, FOUR, another boundary, and again driven square through the off side as Inrgam frees his arms to bisect cover and backward point


Watson to Ingram, no run, full and wide from Watson, almost another boundary but this time he picks out cover who makes a diving save

South Africa 29/2   SR Watson 1-0-5-0

Watson to Ingram, 1 run, dabbed away down to third man


Watson to Duminy, no run, dragged down short but Duminy can't take advantage as he fails to time his pull


Watson to Duminy, 1 run, opens the face and sends this down to third man


Watson to Ingram, no run, round the wicket, full on off stump, driven square into the off side and a direct hit from point would have found the non-striker short but Steve Smith's aim isn't quite good enough


Watson to Ingram, no run, beats the outside edge as Ingram plays on the walk


Watson to Ingram, no run, hint of desperation as Ingram tries to slog a full ball over the leg side but doesn't make contact

South Africa 58/2   SR Watson 2-0-7-0

Watson to Miller, 1 run, swiped down to long on, just the single


Watson to Duminy, FOUR, a resounding crack off the bat as Duminy murders a pull to midwicket! This shot echoed round Newlands. Watson dropped it short without the pace to back up the length and Duminy absolutely hammered it away


Watson to Duminy, 1 run, Watson's back over the wicket now, and Duminy picks up a single with a jab to cover


Watson to Miller, 1 run, drilled down to long off. Both batsmen are hitting the ball really hard


Watson to Duminy, 1 run, clipped down the ground, and that's the half-century for Duminy. He's done really well to guide the innings after a wobbly start


Watson to Miller, FOUR, off the bottom edge, and down to the third man boundary! The ball was fired in on a yorker length outside off, Miller swung hard and Wade had no chance of stopping it

South Africa 113/3   SR Watson 3-0-19-0

Watson to Kuhn, 1 run, a spliced pull falls safely at deep midwicket! Heino Kuhn appeared to be startled by the short delivery, he was in no position to play the shot. It's hard to believe Watto's bowling could startle anyone, but there you go


Watson to Peterson, 2 runs, chipped down the ground ... and some great, committed fielding from Steve Smith saves the boundary. He charged after the ball, slid and tapped it back into the field. Classy stuff


Watson to Peterson, no run, Watson sends down a yorker outside off, and the ball slips under Peterson's flailing bat


Watson to Peterson, FOUR, shot! Peterseon walks across his stumps - having noticed that fine leg had been brought up - and scoops a low full toss down to the boundary. And with that, fine leg is promptly sent back out again! Third man is up


Watson to Peterson, OUT, clatter! Peterson had an almighty heave across the line at a straight one, and his leg stump was knocked out of the ground. Not much in the way of a celebration from Watto, but that wicket will almost certainly keep South Africa to less than 150

RJ Peterson b Watson 6 (8m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00


Watson to Theron, 1 leg bye, a full toss strikes Theron on the pad as he backs to leg, and they hustle a leg bye to end the innings

South Africa 146/7   SR Watson 4-0-26-1
