Dale Steyn906417.11276300
30.6 to GJ Maxwell, the Powerplay has struck, as it usually does, Glenn Maxwell is gone, a short ball from Steyn, Maxwell goes for the pull, top edge and the ball goes high up, Steyn wants it, so does de Kock, who will take it? it is de Kock who gets it as Steyn stays away. 136/3
Jean-Paul Duminy402406.00132100
Morne Morkel915115.66294112
48.3 to BJ Haddin, Haddin falls in an attempt to collect runs like his partner. It was full outside off, he went for a lofted drive over the covers but got a leading edge and was caught at the edge of the circle. 258/6
Ryan McLaren805617.00223320
10.3 to AJ Finch, oh Finch has given it away! It was full and wide and Finch probably got tempted, went for a big lofted drive on the off side but holed out straight to the man in the deep for an easy catch. He wanted to break the shackles, but could not. 46/1
Imran Tahir1004214.20322100
29.2 to SPD Smith, Smith's innings is over, Tahir gets the breakthrough, Smith skips down the crease and looks to power the ball through the off side, and gets a thick outside edge, de Kock hangs on to that one, just about, it came off de Kock's right thigh pad initially, de Kock kept his cool to latch on. 131/2
Aaron Phangiso1003923.90312000
34.4 to PJ Hughes, Hughes couldn't get the previous two deliveries away, decides he has to go big now, takes on the man at long-on, it was a length ball that he wanted to club over the ropes, he can't get it as wide as he likes, picks out the fielder at long-on, this has been a disastrous Powerplay for Australia. 152/4
41.2 to GJ Bailey, gone this time! He's been stumped, being beaten by the turn! Bailey charged down this time, despite hitting a four previous ball, going for a lofted drive for a ball on off stump but the ball turned away from him and QDK did the rest. 187/5

Mitchell Johnson913023.33371040
24.4 to DA Miller, that's a Johnson special, Miller's stumps have gone for a walk! It was well short of length and very quick from outside off, Miller didn't move his feet much and looked to push it but it came in, beat him by pace and rattled the stumps through the huge gap between bat and pad. 101/5
42.4 to M Morkel, that's gone through, bowled'im! What a difference pace can make! the length delivery came in from just outside off and it didn't give Morkel any time to move his feet, he tried to drive it down but missed it completely. 217/9
Glenn Maxwell402225.50141020
1.4 to Q de Kock, Maxwell has got the wicket, the prolific de Kock is gone for 1, he went for the slog sweep, a top edge sends the ball high up and not too far from the pitch, Steve Smith gets under it and pouches the skier. 9/1
43.6 to Imran Tahir, it's all over, Tahir has been caught at deep cover and Australia enter the finals of the tri-series with a bonus-point win. He freed his arms and lofted to ball over cover but only got as far as Mitchell Marsh. 220/10
Kane Richardson803824.75296000
36.6 to R McLaren, goes for a heave and hands it to midwicket! It was slightly full outside off stump and he went for a cross-batted heave to the leg side, didn't middle and it went straight to Steven Smith. 174/6
41.5 to F du Plessis, oh, he's hitwicket, what a way for that innings to end! Faf went back in the crease to turn the ball to deep midwicket from outside off and set off for a single too, but his right heel touched the base of the off stump and he has to walk back. He has a word with Phangiso before leaving the field. 214/8
Mitchell Starc814705.87271400
Mitchell Marsh502324.60171100
9.3 to HM Amla, stunning take from Haddin, throwing himself to his left to pluck a one-handed take, not bad for a 36-year-old that, Amla had moved across the stumps to try whip the ball down to fine leg, can only tickle it just wide of Haddin, or so he thought till that acrobatic leap from Haddin, and Marsh's day continues to get better. 36/2
22.5 to JP Duminy, oh, Duminy has handed a simple catch to fine leg! Marsh pitched it short outside leg and Duminy pulled it, but not with much power, maybe he wanted to pull it finer and the fielder took a couple of steps in and caught it easily. Had he been at the boundary, it would have fallen short. 93/4
Nathan Lyon1005315.30284100
15.4 to AB de Villiers, swept once more, this time in the air, taken at backward square leg, perhaps AB wanted to hit that over the fielder there, but instead he hits it straight at his chest, easy for Bailey, a massive wicket this, South Africa in a hole now, with their three most prolific batsmen in recent series gone, this is a test for middle and lower-middle order. 64/3
