Africa beats Australia by 10 runs and it's means we are going to see a mini Ashes in semifinal between Australia and England now. What a match today for Africa specially from start only either it's batting first, bowling or fielding. A well deserved Century from Faf and big scrore from Dussen too took Africa to a huge total.
Australia too showed intent despite some early collapse and after Khwaja walked out due to hamstring injury. Warner kept on charging while Carey kept on attacking until he departed. Lastly Kangaroos left a little back in this race and lost. Africa will take some good memories back home with them now. Tahir might be playing his last World Cup now. We will miss him and his celebration. Duminy too departs from international cricket now.
49.5APhehlukwayo to NLyon
OUT! Caught! That ends the game. SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 10 RUNS. Andile takes the last wicket of the match. A length ball around off, Lyon gets down and mows a slog towards mid-wicket. But he finds Aiden Markram in the deep running to his left who completes an easy catch.
49.4APhehlukwayo to JBehrendorff
Outside off, heaved down to long off for a single.
49.3APhehlukwayo to JBehrendorff
NOT OUT. Outside off, Behrendorff lofts it over mid off and hares back for the second. The throw is a good one to the keeper who disturbs the stumps and appeals. It is referred upstairs but replays show that Jason has used his long reach to stretch in.
49.2APhehlukwayo to NLyon
Outside off, punched off the back foot for just a single.
49.1APhehlukwayo to JBehrendorff

Outside off, dabbed towards third man for a couple.
48.2KRabada to JBehrendorff
A sharp bouncer around off, Behrendorff takes his eyes off the ball and looks to fend it. The ball goes off the outside edge towards point. The batsmen go for a quick single and the fielder has a shy at the bowler's end but concedes an overthrow instead. A single added to the single.
48.1KRabada to UKhawaja
OUT! BOWLED! Khawaja has played that back onto the stumps! Usman stands there in remorse while Rabada smiles. It is not a wry smile, it is just a genuine one. He too, agrees that Khawaja is a bit unlucky. A full toss outside off, Uzzie gets across and looks to paddle but hits it from the bottom half of the bat onto the stumps! Well tried, brave lad.
47.6CMorris to UKhawaja
Outside off, hit through the covers for a single. 17 from the over, do Australia still have a chance? 25 needed in the last 2 overs.
47.5CMorris to UKhawaja
FOUR! 300 UP FOR AUSTRALIA! From 119/4 and a batsman more down, this is a fabulous effort. A full toss, on middle, Khawaja brings his subtle wrists into play and flicks it through mid-wicket!
47.4CMorris to MStarc
Full and wide outside off, squeezed through the covers for a run.
47.3CMorris to MStarc
FOUR! Nice shot! Full and around middle, Starc backs away and hammers it straight back past the non-striker, to the long on fence!
47.2CMorris to MStarc
SIX! AUDACIOUS! A length ball, around middle and leg, Starc pulls this over mid-wicket for half a dozen! 35 more needed from 16 balls now.
47.1CMorris to UKhawaja
Oops... Gets across to play a paddle but cannot make use of the low full toss. Gets into a tangle and the ball hits the outside edge and goes to short third man. A single taken.
46.6KRabada to UKhawaja
Outside off, driven through the covers for one.
46.5KRabada to UKhawaja

46.4KRabada to MStarc
A length ball on middle and leg, turned through mid-wicket for a run.
46.3KRabada to UKhawaja
Backs away to the leg side, is followed by a short ball and somehow Usman fends it towards short third man for a single.
46.2KRabada to UKhawaja
Full and outside off, Khawaja looks to go big but the ball hits the toe end of his bat and goes to mid off. Does not carry.

Out! Morris joins the party too as Carey departs.
45.2CMorris to ACarey
OUT! Caught in the deep! Fighting knock from Carey comes to an end. He tried very hard to take Australia home but the task is too steep. A cutter outside off, Carey backs away and tries to carve it over cover but finds Aiden Markram at sweeper, who comes running in and takes a diving catch! The entire Protean unit mobs him. That surely should be the game? 51 more needed from 28 balls.
45.1CMorris to MStarc
Excellent yorker outside off, dug out towards cover for a single.

A short ball, pulled straight to short fine leg. A metre here or there would have been a boundary. A run taken.
Out! Phehlukwayo strikes as Cummins departs.
44.5APhehlukwayo to PatCummins
OUT! Caught! The 45-run stand is broken. Another slower ball fetches a wicket. This is also at 106 kph. On a length outside off, Cummins looks to go big, coming forward and aiming for a home run in baseball, but only manages to sky it high in the air. JP Duminy comes running in from long off and takes it Australian style. 54 more needed from 32 balls.
44.4APhehlukwayo to ACarey
