  Australia innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Finch c Duminy b McLaren 16 42 36 1 0 44.44
10.3 oh Finch has given it away! It was full and wide and Finch probably got tempted, went for a big lofted drive on the off side but holed out straight to the man in the deep for an easy catch. He wanted to break the shackles, but could not 46/1
View dismissal PJ Hughes c Miller b Phangiso 85 144 92 7 1 92.39
34.4 Hughes couldn't get the previous two deliveries away, decides he has to go big now, takes on the man at long-on, it was a length ball that he wanted to club over the ropes, he can't get it as wide as he likes, picks out the fielder at long-on, this has been a disastrous Powerplay for Australia 152/4
View dismissal SPD Smith c †de Kock b Imran Tahir 36 72 62 2 0 58.06
29.2 Smith's innings is over, Tahir gets the breakthrough, Smith skips down the crease and looks to power the ball through the off side, and gets a thick outside edge, de Kock hangs on to that one, just about, it came off de Kock's right thigh pad initially, de Kock kept his cool to latch on 131/2
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c †de Kock b Steyn 2 9 6 0 0 33.33
30.6 the Powerplay has struck, as it usually does, Glenn Maxwell is gone, a short ball from Steyn, Maxwell goes for the pull, top edge and the ball goes high up, Steyn wants it, so does de Kock, who will take it? it is de Kock who gets it as Steyn stays away 136/3
View dismissal GJ Bailey* st †de Kock b Phangiso 32 44 35 3 1 91.42
41.2 gone this time! He's been stumped, being beaten by the turn! Bailey charged down this time, despite hitting a four previous ball, going for a lofted drive for a ball on off stump but the ball turned away from him and QDK did the rest 187/5
MR Marsh not out 86 69 51 5 7 168.62
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Phangiso b Morkel 11 32 17 1 0 64.70
48.3 Haddin falls in an attempt to collect runs like his partner. It was full outside off, he went for a lofted drive over the covers but got a leading edge and was caught at the edge of the circle 258/6
View dismissal MG Johnson run out (Phangiso) 2 8 2 0 0 100.00
49.5 McLaren to Marsh, excellent ball in the block hole, but Johnson's been run out for trying to run the second. Marsh dug it down to long-off and nearly lost his balance while playing the shot which and he lost time there. Johnson wanted to get Marsh back on strike but he was sent back and he could not get there on time 281/7

  South Africa innings (target: 283 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HM Amla c †Haddin b Marsh 17 42 28 2 0 60.71
9.3 stunning take from Haddin, throwing himself to his left to pluck a one-handed take, not bad for a 36-year-old that, Amla had moved across the stumps to try whip the ball down to fine leg, can only tickle it just wide of Haddin, or so he thought till that acrobatic leap from Haddin, and Marsh's day continues to get better 36/2
View dismissal Q de Kock c Smith b Maxwell 1 8 5 0 0 20.00
1.4 Maxwell has got the wicket, the prolific de Kock is gone for 1, he went for the slog sweep, a top edge sends the ball high up and not too far from the pitch, Steve Smith gets under it and pouches the skier 9/1
View dismissal F du Plessis hit wicket b Richardson 126 177 109 8 6 115.59
41.5 oh, he's hitwicket, what a way for that innings to end! Faf went back in the crease to turn the ball to deep midwicket from outside off and set off for a single too, but his right heel touched the base of the off stump and he has to walk back. He has a word with Phangiso before leaving the field 214/8
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c Bailey b Lyon 6 23 19 0 0 31.57
15.4 swept once more, this time in the air, taken at backward square leg, perhaps AB wanted to hit that over the fielder there, but instead he hits it straight at his chest, easy for Bailey, a massive wicket this, South Africa in a hole now, with their three most prolific batsmen in recent series gone, this is a test for middle and lower-middle order 64/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c sub (BCJ Cutting) b Marsh 16 27 32 1 0 50.00
22.5 oh, Duminy has handed a simple catch to fine leg! Marsh pitched it short outside leg and Duminy pulled it, but not with much power, maybe he wanted to pull it finer and the fielder took a couple of steps in and caught it easily. Had he been at the boundary, it would have fallen short 93/4
View dismissal DA Miller b Johnson 3 9 5 0 0 60.00
24.4 that's a Johnson special, Miller's stumps have gone for a walk! It was well short of length and very quick from outside off, Miller didn't move his feet much and looked to push it but it came in, beat him by pace and rattled the stumps through the huge gap between bat and pad 101/5
View dismissal R McLaren c Smith b Richardson 24 53 41 2 0 58.53
36.6 goes for a heave and hands it to midwicket! It was slightly full outside off stump and he went for a cross-batted heave to the leg side, didn't middle and it went straight to Steven Smith 174/6
View dismissal DW Steyn run out (Smith) 5 18 10 1 0 50.00
40.3 from Johnson, gone, Steyn is run out! He punched the ball down to mid-off and took off to give strike to Faf, but the ball reached Smith in no time and he struck the stumps with a direct hit and so much power that one of them broke! 206/7
AM Phangiso not out 3 19 9 0 0 33.33
View dismissal M Morkel b Johnson 0 5 2 0 0 0.00
42.4 that's gone through, bowled'im! What a difference pace can make! the length delivery came in from just outside off and it didn't give Morkel any time to move his feet, he tried to drive it down but missed it completely 217/9
View dismissal Imran Tahir c Marsh b Maxwell 2 4 4 0 0 50.00
43.6 it's all over, Tahir has been caught at deep cover and Australia enter the finals of the tri-series with a bonus-point win. He freed his arms and lofted to ball over cover but only got as far as Mitchell Marsh 220/10
