Full commentary

all but the long leg were in the circle, one of the easier boundaries you'll find, The two batsmen embrace, Parore in particular looks chipper

and so we have a livewire match tomorrow, Australia will need to win to qualify, and if they do the semis will probably be Aus-SA and Pak-NZ, if SAf win tomorrow the semis will be SA-Zim and Pak-NZ. So one could say that SA have plenty to play for.

presentations: Azhar with his usual. I managed to pick the words "good job" out of it. And he doesn't think 251 was enough. Ravi Shastri asks all the deep questions.

Fleming: "[Twose] has played very well. Our strength has been thru Roger and the later order" (he says giving the backhander to the top order, which includes himself)

Man of the Match is Twose: "Great feeling to get thru to the semi final.... Parore played a blinding innings.. we thought it was a good wicket... wasn't difficult [to get back concentration after the break]... I'm sure we can go the whole way"

so tomorrow it all begins at the standard time of 0945 GMT. Until then.
