Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Temba Bavuma, 0.2 ov), 2-12 (Matthew Breetzke, 2.2 ov), 3-70 (Aiden Markram, 7.6 ov), 4-116 (Reeza Hendricks, 12.4 ov), 5-122 (Tristan Stubbs, 13.1 ov), 6-122 (Bjorn Fortuin, 13.4 ov), 7-176 (Gerald Coetzee, 18.1 ov), 8-181 (Donovan Ferreira, 19.3 ov) • DRS
0.2 to T Bavuma, Bavuma departs first ball! Back of a length delivery just outside off that sticks in the surface. Bavuma is not expecting this at all and ends up dangling his bat. The ball spoons up off the higher part of the bat and lobs towards backward point. Head judges it nicely, dives forward and sends Bavuma on his way back!. 1/1
2.2 to MP Breetzke, soft dismissal! Stoinis has two! Hard length, into the pitch on middle and leg. Breetzke backs away and tries to smash it over mid on. The ball gets big on him, though, and he ends up splicing it straight to David at mid on. This is not the kind of start South Africa would have wanted having opted to bat first!. 12/2
7.6 to AK Markram, Abbott has the last laugh over Markram! Length outside off and this too is in Markram's wheelhouse. He gets into position and tries to clear extra cover but for a change, does not get the elevation he is after. Arrows it straight to Turner, who does the rest. Massive, massive moment in the game!. 70/3
13.1 to T Stubbs, Stubbs falls too, and Australia have two wickets in very quick succession! Full delivery on leg stump, and it seems as if Stubbs wanted to just time it to deep mid wicket for a single. Instead, he gets under it and picks out the fielder on the fence. Might have been an off-pace delivery but that is a very tame dismissal. South Africa lose two wickets in four balls, and Australia are now back in this contest!. 122/5
13.4 to BC Fortuin, Abbott has three, another slower ball does the trick! Beautifully disguised and this lands on a length on off stump, forcing Fortuin to push at it. He has not picked the variation, though, and plays well in front of his body, ultimately chipping it straight to Marsh at short extra cover!. 122/6
18.1 to G Coetzee, that wicket will certainly help! Full and wide outside off. Coetzee swings hard at it but the ball is just a little out of his hitting arc. Mistimes it and offers a fairly regulation catch to substitute fielder Hardie at long off. A useful cameo, though!. 176/7
12.4 to RR Hendricks, edged and taken! Sangha provides the breakthrough! Quicker and flatter on a length outside off. Hendricks tries to cut it away but the ball is not short enough to be playing that stroke. Gets a faint tickle that Inglis does well to gobble up. Crucial wicket in the context of the game!. 116/4

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Matthew Short, 0.1 ov), 2-43 (Mitchell Marsh, 4.1 ov), 3-128 (Josh Inglis, 11.1 ov), 4-186 (Travis Head, 16.5 ov), 5-187 (Tim David, 17.1 ov) • DRS
0.1 to MW Short, and Markram gets Short first ball, the gamble pays off! Full and darted into middle and off stump. Short gets down on one knee and swipes across the line. The ball is just a shade full to be playing that stroke, though, and Short missies it completely. Gets pinned on the pads and the umpire, after a bit of thought, raises his finger. Short chats with Head, who sends him on his way!. 0/1
11.1 to JP Inglis, Inglis bites the dust, finally! Length delivery fired into the stumps. Inglis gets down on one knee early, looking for the sweep. This one, though, bounces a smidgen extra, inducing a top-edge that Coetzee snaffles up at deep backward square leg!. 128/3
16.5 to TM Head, Head falls! Full and fired across the batter well outside off. Head has to fetch it and in that pursuit, cannot get the elevation he is after. Arrows it straight down Bavuma's throat at long off, who after putting down a couple of chances, holds onto this one!. 186/4
4.1 to MR Marsh, that goes miles up in the air, and Fortuin gobbles it up! Length just outside off and this one seems to stick in the surface a tad. Marsh is looking to go for that trademark heave over the leg side but clinks this off the toe-end. Fortuin settles himself at mid wicket and holds onto the chance!. 43/2
17.1 to TH David, David perishes looking for the six! Dug in outside off and David's eyes light up. He is hitting to the longer side, though, and while he gets a decent chunk of it, he does not get enough to clear the sweeper at deep mid wicket. A bit of an anti-climax really as Coetzee bags his second of the evening!. 187/5
