Australia in South Africa ODI Series - 3rd ODI

South Africa v Australia

Australia won by 3 wickets (with 15 balls remaining)

13.2

Doherty to Smith, OUT, great catch! This time Hussey makes it, and it's a blinder. Smith plays the sweep and doesn't keep the ball down. It skims towards deep midwicket where Hussey races in then dives forward

GC Smith c Hussey b Doherty 19 (60m 36b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.77

South Africa 58/1   HM Amla 36* (44b 7x4)   XJ Doherty 0.2-0-0-1

25.6

Doherty to Kallis, OUT, dabbed to short third man ... and this could well be run out! Amla had to hurry as the throw was fired in. They're going to have another look at this. The return from the fielder was bang on target, and Amla is short of his ground! Cummins was the fielder. He's got quite an arm

HM Amla run out 52 (112m 72b 7x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

South Africa 117/2   JH Kallis 41* (48b 2x4 2x6)   XJ Doherty 5-0-21-1

33.4

Doherty to Kallis, OUT, gone! Reward for Doherty and Australia. Kallis tries to break the shackles with a sweep and, like Smith, gets a top edge which, unlike Smith, goes high in the air before being well taken by Marsh inches from the deep square boundary

JH Kallis c Marsh b Doherty 54 (80m 74b 3x4 2x6) SR: 72.97

South Africa 141/3   JP Duminy 9* (20b)   XJ Doherty 8.4-0-31-2

42.3

Cummins to du Plessis, OUT, du Plessis falls to an extremely slow slower ball! He was looking to play a shot into the off side but by the time the ball got to him his bat had swung round and instead he lifted it out straight to the man at deep square

F du Plessis c Doherty b Cummins 21 (41m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

South Africa 185/4   JP Duminy 25* (45b)   PJ Cummins 9.3-0-48-1

47.1

Johnson to Duminy, OUT, he strikes straight away, and a frustrated Duminy is caught close to the boundary at midwicket! He got a good connection on the slog to leg, but couldn't hit it far enough to get it over Ponting

JP Duminy c Ponting b Johnson 35 (92m 58b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.34

South Africa 205/5   DA Miller 4* (15b)   MG Johnson 8.1-0-29-1

49.2

Johnson to Boucher, OUT, Boucher holes out to long off! He sliced right across the ball, and presented an easy catch to Warner

MV Boucher c Warner b Johnson 8 (8m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 218/6   DA Miller 9* (20b)   MG Johnson 9.2-0-33-2
