TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.25)145/6
Fall of wickets: 1-75 (Quinton de Kock, 8.4 ov), 2-88 (Rilee Rossouw, 11.1 ov), 3-117 (Reeza Hendricks, 15.2 ov), 4-122 (Farhaan Behardien, 16.4 ov), 5-133 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 18.1 ov), 6-134 (David Wiese, 18.3 ov)
15.2 to RR Hendricks, Dougie does it, Hendricks drags on! The ball was short and there to pull but maybe Bollinger had rolled his fingers over it, the batsman misjudged the stroke, bottom-edged the ball on to his body and then down to shiver leg stump. Falls just short of the fifty mark, like his opening partner. 117/3
16.4 to F Behardien, shortish and taken on... only to pick out deep midwicket! Behardien's brief, painful sally is brought to a close, slogging across the line but never had to the distance to that part of the ground. 122/4
18.1 to JP Duminy, tries to get to the pitch, Duminy lifts a length ball to deep midwicket! Another one goes, the SA innings is dribbling to a close... He was hitting across the line and didn't really get hold of it. 133/5
18.3 to D Wiese, gone first ball, edging a pull through to the keeper! Two in three balls for Faulkner, the slump continues. It was another back-of-a-length delivery, Wiese hadn't got his eye in and succeeded only in feathering it through to Dunk. 134/6
11.1 to RR Rossouw, tossed up, Rossouw charges... and picks out long-on! Success for Boyce, he keeps tossing it up, Rossouw was trying to clear the short, straight boundary - the ball was a little wide, he wasn't to the pitch and dragged it straight to the fielder. 88/2
8.4 to Q de Kock, got him, Cummins makes the breakthrough with a fast short ball! Banged in, little bit of cut on the ball and de Kock was hurried trying to pull, just a tickle of glove and it's safely pouched by Dunk. 75/1

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-40 (Aaron Finch, 4.4 ov), 2-53 (Ben Dunk, 6.4 ov), 3-61 (Nic Maddinson, 7.6 ov), 4-62 (Shane Watson, 8.1 ov), 5-100 (Glenn Maxwell, 12.5 ov), 6-125 (James Faulkner, 15.5 ov), 7-135 (Pat Cummins, 17.4 ov), 8-144 (Sean Abbott, 19.3 ov)
19.3 to SA Abbott, slips in the yorker, Abbott, S is hit on the boot and Abbott, K has the wicket! Up goes the finger, gets the decision even if it looked a touch leg side... Australia are eight down and still need two to win. 144/8
15.5 to JP Faulkner, gone this time, slogging down the ground! Maybe didn't need to try the trick twice, Faulkner falls picking out the man at long-on for a simple catch. 125/6
4.4 to AJ Finch, oh, gone, shovelled to backward square leg! Finch knew what he'd done as soon as he hit it, pulling a genuine short ball straight to the fielder. The stump mic picked up his "Oh no!" as South Africa celebrated gleefully. That might change things. 40/1
7.6 to NJ Maddinson, or maybe that was a bit of luck, as Maddinson plays on! The extra delivery earns a wicket, another cutter from Wiese, angled across and Maddinson played the wrong line, took the inside edge and deflected down on to off stump to zing the bails. 61/3
17.4 to PJ Cummins, got him, Wiese snaffles a leading edge! That's what South Africa need, dot balls won't win it for them, Wiese has his third wicket, he's been bowling with canny changes of pace, Cummins tried to work it to leg and only succeeded in popping the ball back to the bowler. 135/7
6.4 to BR Dunk, on the attack again - but he's hit it straight into Peterson's bread basket! Really sharp catch and he squeals in celebration... Dunk didn't get to the pitch this time, the ball maybe gripped a little and hit higher up the bat, still flew pretty quickly but Peterson was alert to grab the chance. 53/2
8.1 to SR Watson, a wicket follows a wide again, Watson ballooning a drive to extra cover running back! The ball was wider than Watson would have liked, he skipped out but made a mess of trying to smash this down the ground. It's another fast start followed by a stumble - but whose will be more damaging?. 62/4
12.5 to GJ Maxwell, Maxwell whirls the arms but this is a huge top edge... superbly taken on the run by deep midwicket! Just as the match seemed to be back in Australia's court, the required rate only a run-a-ball, Maxwell has exploded all over himself. Third wicket for Peterson, equalling his T20I best. 100/5
