Australia tour of South Africa, 2nd T20I: South Africa v Australia at Johannesburg, Oct 16, 2011
South Africa won by 3 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)
16 October 2011 (20-over match)

Morkel to Warner, OUT, gone this time! Warner slashes at a length delivery, slicing under the ball and sending it looping towards mid off ... where the fielder charges in and holds a good, sliding catch. Two ducks in two games for Warner

DA Warner c Ingram b Morkel 0 (8m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 3/1   MS Wade 0* (2b)   M Morkel 0.5-0-0-1

Tsotsobe to Wade, OUT, edged and gone! Wade charged the bowler and slashed at a length delivery, but didn't factor in the extra bounce and could only send a healthy edge through to Kuhn. This is turning into a bit of a top-order wobble now

MS Wade c †Kuhn b Tsotsobe 10 (21m 13b 0x4 1x6) SR: 76.92

Australia 17/2   SE Marsh 3* (5b)   LL Tsotsobe 2.3-0-6-1

Theron to SE Marsh, OUT, well-caught by Kuhn! Marsh aimed to heave Theron's first delivery over midwicket but sliced under the ball. The swirling chance came down somewhere near backward point, where Kuhn had charged and called for it. There's a slight delay as the umpire checks for the no-ball, and though it's very tight the delivery is legitimate and Marsh is on his way. That's put a dent in Australia's fightback

SE Marsh c †Kuhn b Theron 26 (34m 23b 2x4 2x6) SR: 113.04

Australia 50/3   DJ Hussey 9* (10b 1x4)   J Theron 1.1-0-3-1

Botha to Hussey, OUT, big wicket for South Africa! Hussey has picked out long on...used his feet to Botha but didn't quite get the connection and was a well-judged catch near the boundary

DJ Hussey c Miller b Botha 12 (29m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Australia 65/4   CL White 12* (4b 1x4 1x6)   J Botha 1.3-0-8-1

Tsotsobe to Smith, OUT, another goes and Tsotsobe deserved that. Smith tries to work a slower ball off-cutter to the leg side and gets a leading edge to cover for a simple catch

SPD Smith c Miller b Tsotsobe 9 (14m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Australia 87/5   CL White 24* (16b 2x4 1x6)   LL Tsotsobe 3.5-0-11-2

Parnell to MR Marsh, OUT, football meets cricket! Excellent skills from Parnell in his follow through. Marsh got an inside edge into his pads which bobbled down by his feet. White called for the single, but Parnell sprinted from his follow through and kicked the ball into the stumps

CL White run out 39 (32m 26b 4x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

Australia 106/6   MR Marsh 4* (7b)   WD Parnell 2.4-0-27-0

Theron to O'Keefe, OUT, slashes outside off stump and gets a thin edge through to the keeper. Australia just can't build momentum in this innings. The umpires check for the no-ball, but this Theron has half his foot behind the line.

SNJ O'Keefe c †Kuhn b Theron 3 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 112/7   MR Marsh 6* (11b)   J Theron 3.5-0-28-2

Morkel to MR Marsh, OUT, finally on target. A yorker extracts off stump as Marsh tries to guide it through the off side but not after some significant damage was done

MR Marsh b Morkel 36 (28m 21b 0x4 4x6) SR: 171.42

Australia 147/8   JL Pattinson 5* (3b 1x4)   M Morkel 4-0-37-2
