  South Africa innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HM Amla c †Barresi b Jamil 43 20 22 7 1 195.45
4.3 80.0 mph, Malik gets his man and the explosive Amla walks back! Malik comes round the wicket and gives him a bit of width, Amla looked to slam it past the covers, the fielders were confident he had nicked it and so was the umpire 45/2
View dismissal Q de Kock c Myburgh b Swart 0 4 2 0 0 0.00
0.5 55.0 mph, caught at square leg! Quinton de Kock comes down the pitch, Swart bowls this on the pads and de Kock has to play this to the on side, the bat turned, perhaps not where he intended to place the ball, square leg was pushed slightly back and an easy catch 3/1
View dismissal F du Plessis* c van Beek b TLW Cooper 24 36 14 3 1 171.42
8.5 55.1 mph, taken in the deep after that six! Tossed up on middle and leg, du Plessis takes a couple of paces down and he flicks it high down to deep midwicket, van Beek takes it at the edge of the circle 84/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers c BN Cooper b van Beek 21 27 21 1 0 100.00
10.1 83.8 mph, they've got AB and that's a big wicket! You would have to say he threw his wicket away, there was a deep cover in place and AB found him, he was down the track to a length ball and punched it inside out straight to Ben Cooper 92/4
View dismissal JA Morkel c BN Cooper b Jamil 5 18 11 0 0 45.45
12.6 69.8 mph, another South African throws his wicket away and it's Morkel this time, Malik bowls this fuller and he looks to clear deep midwicket, doesn't get the distance, went off the base of the bat, Ben Cooper takes the skier at deep midwicket 102/5
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Barresi b van der Gugten 12 21 15 0 0 80.00
15.5 88.2 mph, 6 down and he's caught down the leg side! The ball was drifting down leg, Duminy looked to clip it to the leg side and the finger went up quickly, may have clipped the glove 120/6
View dismissal DA Miller b Jamil 17 26 18 0 0 94.44
18.5 68.8 mph, that's a five-for for Ahsan Malik! This was fuller and swinging towards the off stump, not sure what Miller was trying but he played all around it, the ball clips the off stump, these are the best figures by an Associate bowler against a Full Member side in a T20 international 135/9
View dismissal DW Steyn c †Barresi b Jamil 5 6 4 1 0 125.00
16.5 67.2 mph, Will SA even last 20 overs? This was another fuller one outside off, he made a lot of room and looked to drive and got a thin edge to the keeper Barresi 127/7
View dismissal BE Hendricks c Borren b Jamil 3 5 4 0 0 75.00
18.1 68.7 mph, how many soft dismissals have we seen today? This was pitched up and Hendricks looked to deposit that over the on side, miscued and gets a top edge that swirls to cover, easy catch 133/8

View dismissal SJ Myburgh b Duminy 51 34 28 8 2 182.14
7.5 61.3 mph, will this be a game-changer? Tossed up on middle and leg and that drew Myburgh to come down the track, he played all around it, got an inside edge to the stumps and the bat slipped out of his hand as well 80/2
View dismissal MR Swart c du Plessis b Steyn 8 25 12 1 0 66.66
5.5 89.4 mph, Terrific catch by the captain himself! Swart made room to a shorter one and looked to clear mid-off, ended up slapping it and Faf du Plessis had to cover a lot of ground to his right at mid-off, timed his dive well and took the catch 58/1
View dismissal W Barresi lbw b Imran Tahir 14 13 9 1 1 155.55
8.3 60.5 mph, another one down and SA are pumped up! This was fired through much quicker and flatter from Tahir, Barresi was hit low on the pads as he tried to flick it away, Hawkeye however shows that missing the leg stump, a frustrated Barresi walks off 82/3
View dismissal PW Borren* lbw b Imran Tahir 13 11 10 1 1 130.00
10.3 Tahir strikes back after getting slammed for six! Not the smartest shot you would say, a flatter delivery and Borren moved tor far across the stumps to sweep and exposed all three stumps, the ball strikes the pads plumb in front, no doubts about this one 97/4
View dismissal TLW Cooper b Imran Tahir 16 23 13 2 0 123.07
13.1 60.7 mph, Tahir hits the timber and SA are right back in this! Tom Cooper looked to pull this one, it was a quicker delivery, looked like it went between his legs, swing and a miss and Tahir sets off for his celebratory run 116/6
View dismissal BN Cooper c †de Kock b Steyn 5 12 6 0 0 83.33
12.5 88.4 mph, the bouncer gets him this time! He may have survived the previous ball but Steyn had another one coming, really quick for the left-handed Ben, he bent and looked to evade it but the ball took the glove and lobbed up, de Kock jogged to his right and took it 116/5
View dismissal Mudassar Bukhari c Miller b Tsotsobe 11 23 12 1 0 91.66
17.4 78.5 mph, was that really necessary! The batsman needn't have looked to go over the top with the fielder pushed back, this was short and he was down the track and looked to slap this one over long-on, miscued and Miller took it easily 134/9
View dismissal PM Seelaar c Duminy b Imran Tahir 2 1 4 0 0 50.00
13.5 54.1 mph, Netherlands are starting to crumble under pressure here! Tahir tosses it up, Seelar decides that going over the top is the only way to go, gets on his knee and looks to clear long-on, can't clear Duminy 118/7
View dismissal LV van Beek run out (Miller/†de Kock) 1 12 5 0 0 20.00
15.2 Tsotsobe to Mudassar Bukhari, the pressure getting to the Netherlands again! Bukhari pulled this one to wide long-on, van Beek wanted the second but bukhari wasn't interested, van Beek was more than half way down the track but it was too late 125/8
View dismissal T van der Gugten c †de Kock b Hendricks 8 13 12 0 0 66.66
18.4 84.2 mph, South Africa get over the line with the skin of their teeth! Hendricks comes round the wicket and fires in a short ball, van der Gugten arches backwards and risky playing at it, looks to carve this down to third man but gets a thin edge, de Kock knows it and Steve Davis' finger was up quickly 139/10
