ICC World Twenty20 - 12th match, Group C

Afghanistan v South Africa

South Africa won by 59 runs

14.2

Hamid Hassan to JA Morkel, no run, round the wicket and that's a snorter. Sharp lift from a good length, and that surprises Morkel who wears it on the bat handle

14.3

Hamid Hassan to JA Morkel, 1 run, much fuller this time, a good double-whammy

14.5

Hamid Hassan to JA Morkel, 1 run, a short-arm pull to deep midwicket. More energetic bowling here

South Africa 95/5   JA Morkel 2* (3b)

15.2

Mohammad Nabi to JA Morkel, 1 run, onto the front foot, punched to deep cover. Not much more than singles on offer at the moment

15.4

Mohammad Nabi to JA Morkel, no run, low full toss, but smacked hard, back at the bowler

15.5

Mohammad Nabi to JA Morkel, SIX, that's better from Morkel! In the slot for the shot, a full wind-up, and a mighty blow over long-on

15.6

Mohammad Nabi to JA Morkel, 1 run, quicker delivery, pushed to midwicket.

South Africa 106/5   JA Morkel 10* (7b 1x6)

16.1

Hamid Hassan to JA Morkel, no run, round the wicket, slower delivery, just outside off, and beats the bat. Good bowling

16.2

Hamid Hassan to JA Morkel, FOUR, a fraction too short, and mowed through midwicket. Excellent strike, and perfect placement

16.3

Hamid Hassan to JA Morkel, 1 run, in the blockhole, and huge cries of "catch it!" as Noor Ali opted to save the boundary at long-off rather than go for glory. On balance, a good decision

16.6

Hamid Hassan to JA Morkel, FOUR, opens the face, and that's a sweet glide through third man. That was yorker-length, but Morkel was equal to it

South Africa 116/5   JA Morkel 19* (11b 2x4 1x6)

17.3

Mohammad Nabi to JA Morkel, 1 run, a big wind-up, but not much contact as the ball dribbles out to mid-on

17.5

Mohammad Nabi to JA Morkel, 1 run, panned out to deep midwicket

South Africa 126/5   JA Morkel 21* (13b 2x4 1x6)

18.1

Hamid Hassan to JA Morkel, 1 run, big swing, and Morkel doesn't know where that went, but he's called through for an easy single

18.6

Hamid Hassan to JA Morkel, 1 run, round the wicket, a blockhole delivery is dug out to cover, and that's a superb spell from Hassan. He is genuinely swift. And he's given his team a chance. Just a chance ...

South Africa 135/6   JA Morkel 23* (15b 2x4 1x6)

19.1

Shapoor Zadran to JA Morkel, 1 leg bye, good bowling, saw Morkel making room, and followed him down the leg-side with a full delivery

19.4

Shapoor Zadran to JA Morkel, OUT, a massive swipe, a vast spiralling top-edge, the captain calls for a steepler, fumbles at the first attempt, but clings onto the rebound. What a showing from Afghanistan!

JA Morkel c Nawroz Mangal b Shapoor Zadran 23 (20m 17b 2x4 1x6) SR: 135.29

South Africa 137/7   JA Morkel 23 (17b 2x4 1x6)
