bowled him! Tait sends down another yorker, this time the ball smacks Tsotsobe on the pads outside the line of leg stump and then bounces on to the stumps
10.42 pm: Australia have won the first Twenty20 by 52 runs. The victory was set up by bolter David Warner's audacious 89 off 43 balls. He hit seven fours, half a dozen sixes and led Australia to 182.
South Africa's chase was wrecked after Gibbs fell in Bracken's first over and Tait knocked the wind out of de Villiers. Duminy played a superb innings but he had little support from the other batsmen.
No prizes for guessing that David Warner is the Man of the Match. Remember he hasn't even played a first-class game. "It's unreal," he says. "It feels a lot different from Bondi (beach). I was a bit nervous."
The second Twenty20 game is on January 13 in Brisbane. Do join us for that one. Until then, this is George Binoy signing off. Cheers!
