18.1 gone! Fantastic fielding from Steven Smith. Manufactures a wicket, and a massive one too. Amla run-out again. A darter outside off is punched to the left of Smith, who runs around and stops it in one swift motion. He has the presence of mind to realise it is Amla who is halfway down and returns a good throw to Finch who takes off the bails. Big, big, big, big wicket 81/3
    6.3 full and angled in to catch the pad from round the stumps. Qdk flicks and misses/may have tickled it. The umpire - Wilson - gives it as runs. Smith has a chat with Wade and goes for a review. The on-field call is not out. I can't spot an inside snick. There isn't enough evidence actually. There was a noise, but it probably came from the ball hitting the front pad and then the back pad. Impact in line, the tracker shows that it would have hit the leg stump. Umpire Wilson's call is reversed. TV umpire Llong rules it out. Coach Domingo and debutant Shami look puzzled in the SA change room. Qdk has to go, though. Australia get the breakthrough! 29/1
    9.5 Rossouw presses forward and has been given out lbw by ump Illingworth. Looks adjacent. No inside snick there. Rossouw reviews. Not a good one. South Africa have lost their review. Another one that straightens, fuller in length, hit in front of middle. He pushed forward and did not touch it. The on-field call is vindicated 41/2
    22.1 bowled im. Massive wicket. AB is gone. Full on off, tails back in just enough to beat AB's bat. He tried to open the face to guide to third man but the ball jagged back just enough to go through his defences. Huge wicket this. 97/4
    24.6 bowled im. SA in tatters. NCN again. An absolute beauty. Not much he could have done actually. A good length delivery on off, straightens just enough to beat Duminy's bat. Uproots off stump. NCN defeated AB with one that jagged back in, beats Duminy with the away going one. Splendid bowling 104/5
    49.4 bowled'em. End of a fighting innings from FB. Tossed full and straight, FB bends for a reverse paddle. He misses and is nutmegged. Timbaaaah! 188/8
    28.2 got im. One more. Another batsman's off stump goes for a jolly walk. Kept very low. Full on off, Parnell presses forward to that and planted his bat down the line but the ball pitched and kept low enough to creep under the bat. Clattered into off stump. SA six down 112/6
    41.3 Phangiso goes for another wild heave. He makes a mess of it and holes out to long-off. Tosses a legbreak. The batsman goes low for a slog-sweep. He skews it into the hands of Hazlewood. FB shakes his head at the non-striker's end 149/7
    not out
    49.5 Tahir out! He runs down the track right away and runs out to the change room. He swings and slices it down the throat of NCN at long-off 188/9

    1.4 got im. Big wicket. Parnell gets the big fish. He isn't bothering with the review. Huge breakthrough. Fullish on middle and leg, the ball jags back and hits Warner flush in front of leg. Umpire's call was the likely outcome, if Warner reviewed. 1/1
    30.3 Finch clears his front leg and holes out! AB pumps his fist and is mobbed by his team-mates. Finch stepped away outside leg in a bid to open up the off side. He is cramped for room by another quicker ball. 90.3ks. He ends up slicing a drive. AB dives full-stretch to his right at extra cover and pouches it 113/9
    4.3 bowled im. Another big wicket. Khawaja is beaten and SA have struck. Overpitched on off and middle, hustles Khawaja for pace who gets his angled bat down too late. The ball clips the pads and then clatters into the stumps 10/2
    7.5 another wicket. Huge one again. But Smith reviews. Fullish on off, Smith shuffled across and missed a flick. The ball strikes him right in front of middle and leg. Looks out. No bat either. Australia in big trouble now. All reds and Smith is gone. 21/3
    11.5 given this time. This one did not look out. But Umpire Joel Wilson gives him. Flat legbreak is sliding down leg, but Shamsi and co. don't care. He has a wicket in his first over on his debut. Maxwell's struggles continue 47/4
    16.3 outside edge and gone. Marsh is gone. A thick outside edge is gratefully accepted by de Kock. A flat legbreak outside off, Marsh tries to cut but gets a nick through. Big wicket. Aus five down now 72/5
    19.4 Umpire Wilson's finger goes up. Rabada has Wade nicking behind! Australia six down and sinking. Angled in on a good length and leaves the left-hander outside off. 144.7ks, that Wade pushes with firm hands and edges it behind to de Kock 83/6
    21.6 141ks, inswinging yorker, too hot for NCN. It would have been too hot for any batsman. The leg bail is tipped off. Blockhole ball, NCN is beaten for pace. He can't bring his bat down in time 85/7
    22.5 ump Illingworth gives it. Googly, rips in from outside off, hits the front pad in front of off. Was that doing too much? Replays showed that the ball pinged the pad first before Zampa got an inside snick 90/8
    34.2 straight and given! South Africa secure a bonus-point win. Flat on middle and leg, Lyon misses his sweep this time and ump Illingworth signals the end of this game 142/10

Economical Hazlewood

Some resistance

Another collapse on cards?

Different ABD
