    0.2 Warner goes second ball, and Steyn is pumped! Length ball, plenty of bounce, found the top edge as he looked to flick it into the leg side, and it flew up to Shamsi at long leg on the boundary. Steyn brings out a slow-motion chainsaw celebration, and Warner looks disgruntled at the extent to which that shot up from a length 4/1
    8.2 Finch steps outside leg, Shamsi follows him, he throws everything through the shot regardless but can't time it. Faf du Plessis settles underneath it at deep midwicket, and takes a good catch on the rope! Just about stayed inside the rope, and that breaks a very useful partnership 84/2
    12 length ball, down the leg side again and Smith uses his feet looking to work through midwicket... he can't lay bat on it, and de Kock whips the bails off! Think Shamsi saw him coming, dragged it down the leg side, and that's a very sharp stumping made to look easy by QdK. Huge moment! 117/4
    11.5 slower ball, length outside off, huge blow high into the air, but it's not got the distance on it to clear the long side of the ground... Miller settles underneath it at deep midwicket, and takes the catch! De Kock's aggressive move does the trick as Steyn strikes 114/3
    18.3 length outside off, clubbed very high into the leg side, and Steyn takes a brilliant catch! Looks to mow one over midwicket, top-edged it towards square leg, where Steyn ran in and round, before diving to take the chance... EDIT: only just clung on, landed in the fingertips and very nearly popped out! 171/6
    17.4 full on off stump, Carey throws everything at it but it flies straight up into the air... Faf sets himself at backward point, it comes down with snow on it but he takes an excellent catch before falling onto his back! Relief, after what seemed like an eternity under the high ball 167/5

    0.3 zing go the bails! Top of middle stump pegged back! Boy that swung, a banana ball from Starc and de Kock slips up early in the chase! Fired in straight and then snaking back past de Kock's attempt to work across the line, pinging the woodwork 2/1
    3.2 slapped straight up, h-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-g-h towards third man... and taken by Starc! He had to plunge forward as the ball threatened to land short of him, but held it well, a spiralling chance into the Joburg night sky as RVD² flung the hands at a miscued drive. Cummins strikes second ball 17/2
    7.4 goes inside out, slugged over the off side... straight to the boundary rider! Du Plessis won't be making any more of a statement today! Agar with a loopy, wide delivery and he couldn't get the timing, plinked off the toe and it almost didn't carry to Richardson on the rope 44/5
    5.5 top-edged on the pull, this is going to be a tough one... but Zamps holds it running back! The ball stayed up for an age, after Smuts failed to get hold of it, and Zampa must have been running around in circles from short fine leg, as he suddenly shot into view and grabbed on, before falling back and slamming his head into the turf. But he seems okay, and SA are three down! 38/3
    6.2 sliding across, Miller props forward - flicks the outside edge! Zampa and Carey go up in celebration and Miller isn't hanging around. Playing for spin and he just tickled through to the keeper, SA in all sorts of trouble here 40/4

    11.6 pegs back leg stump! That's a bingo for Agar, who has career-best figures! Dirty ole slog across the line from van Biljon, the ball gripping just enough as it skidded on underneath the bat. South Africa eight down and hurting 77/8
    7.5 given lbw first ball! May have been a touch leg side and Phehlukwayo reviews, but the replays quickly show that the ball pitched in line and was straightening bang on leg stump! This innings is quickly going belly up for South Africa! 44/6
    7.6 GOTTIM!! Edged to slip! Tossed one up and Steyn, in no mood for backing down, had a big old yahoo, squirting a thick edge to Finch, who held it well! Agar goes bombing off, what a moment for him, and South Africa are on their knees in the Bullring! 44/7

    14.3 bowled 'im, this one is done! Pushed through flatter and Rabada has one swing too many... Zampa hits middle, and South Africa have been retired on their stool! Australia win by 107 runs to go 1-0 up in the series 89/10
    13.1 that's five! Plopped into the hands of long-on! Agar can barely believe it, he's king of the 'ring tonight. Misbegotten shot from Ngidi, straight to the man set back 85/9
