Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Temba Bavuma, 0.6 ov), 2-8 (Quinton de Kock, 5.4 ov), 3-22 (Aiden Markram, 10.5 ov), 4-24 (Rassie van der Dussen, 11.5 ov), 5-119 (Heinrich Klaasen, 30.4 ov), 6-119 (Marco Jansen, 30.5 ov), 7-172 (Gerald Coetzee, 43.3 ov), 8-191 (Keshav Maharaj, 46.2 ov), 9-203 (David Miller, 47.2 ov), 10-212 (Kagiso Rabada, 49.4 ov) • DRS
0.6 to T Bavuma, edged, caught behind! Early strike for Starc. On off stump, goes on the with angle, a bit of a limp poke from the captain and it's a neat catch by Inglis, low to his right. 1/1
10.5 to AK Markram, taken at point! Australia on fire. Markram goes for the drive, skews in the air off a thickish edge, Warner gobbles the chance. 22/3
46.2 to KA Maharaj, round the wicket, full outside off, carved high into the air and taken on the edge of the ring by mid-off. Comes off the toe of the bat. Maybe not the smartest stroke. 191/8
5.4 to Q de Kock, miles in the air, and brilliantly taken! The pressure tells on de Kock. He tries to launch a length delivery straight down the ground. Goes very high. Cummins back-pedals from mid-on, keeps his eye on it, and holds on above his head, then is able to keep hold as he falls to the ground. Outstanding stuff. 8/2
11.5 to HE van der Dussen, edged, taken this time! It's carnage out there. A touch fuller, brings him forward into a drive, thick edge and a catch at waist height. 24/4
43.3 to G Coetzee, gloves a short ball! Goes for the pull, it's a feather through to Inglis. He doesn't bother with the review. Well-directed bouncer. Ends a handy partnership. Hang on, no mark on Ultra Edge! Just brushed his elbow/shoulder. 172/7
47.2 to DA Miller, goes again, but finds deep square leg! Huge moment with more than two overs still to go. Miller takes on the short ball, can't get distance this time, goes squarer. Head takes it near the rope, tosses it up to make sure and grabs the rebound easily. 203/9
49.4 to K Rabada, great catch! Maxwell at long-on finishes things off. Rabada connect well with his drive down the ground, but Maxwell went low to his right and held it very well. 212/10
30.4 to H Klaasen, gottim, leg stump flattened! Head points the sky, he's broken this crucial stand! What has Klaasen done here? Looks like he has played inside the line of one spinning into him, missing the ball completely as it slides through to hit middle and leg. 119/5
30.5 to M Jansen, sharp turn and he's trapped in front! Head wheels away in celebration and I don't think this looks good for Jansen - even though he reviews after a chat with Miller. Stuck on the crease, missed the ball by a long way... and it is thumping into leg stump! Head has ripped the guts out, SA six down and with a lengthy tail exposed. 119/6

TOTAL47.2 Ov (RR: 4.54)215/7
Fall of wickets: 1-60 (David Warner, 6.1 ov), 2-61 (Mitchell Marsh, 7.4 ov), 3-106 (Travis Head, 14.1 ov), 4-133 (Marnus Labuschagne, 21.5 ov), 5-137 (Glenn Maxwell, 23.4 ov), 6-174 (Steven Smith, 33.3 ov), 7-193 (Josh Inglis, 39.5 ov) • DRS
7.4 to MR Marsh, launches into a drive... van der Dussen plucks a screamer in the covers! SA have two in two overs, Marsh gone for a six-ball duck. That is a stunning snag from the horizontal RvD² because the ball was travelling, full length to his right to get both hands around the ball. Rabada is on the board and SA have a sniff. 61/2
6.1 to DA Warner, bowled him, Markram on the mark! Warner exposes his stumps and pays the price. Regulation offie from round the wicket to the left-hander and he misses with a push as the ball grips on him. Rattles into middle and off, brings some much-needed respite for SA. 60/1
33.3 to SPD Smith, oh goodness, miles in the air and taken by de Kock! That came out of nowhere from Smith. A hack across the line of a short-of-a-length ball, goes high into the night sky, and de Kock does well to hold his nerve. He wasn't leaving it to anyone else. 174/6
39.5 to JP Inglis, bowled 'im, Inglis plays over a straight one! Coetzee finds the perfect full length, cross-seam and skidding under the bat as he tries to flick off his toes. Gets the benefit of forcing the batter back with short stuff, as half a stride forward would have turned that into a full toss. Instead it sneaks through to light up the zing bails and rekindle SA hopes!. 193/7
21.5 to M Labuschagne, big appeal, and given lbw! Labuschagne misses the reverse sweep. He's called the review. He's not hit it. Clipping leg stump. Not by much, but enough. 133/4
23.4 to GJ Maxwell, done him! Oh boy, what a moment. Shamsi is off. Touch shorter, Maxwell goes for the pull, the ball skids through and clatters into leg stump. From 201 to 1. 137/5
14.1 to TM Head, bowled him with a beauty first ball! Huge moment as Maharaj spins one through the gate to castle Head! That's why he's top of the rankings... Full and flighted, the seam rotating around its axis, bites into the turf and swerves back inside the drive to hit middle and off stumps. Australia's firestarter has been doused and SA are still in this. 106/3
