PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Faf du Plessis

49.5Phehlukwayo to Lyon

W
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.

49.4Phehlukwayo to Behrendorff

1
Outside off, heaved down to long off for a single.

49.3Phehlukwayo to Behrendorff

2
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.

49.2Phehlukwayo to Lyon

1
Outside off, punched off the back foot for just a single.

49.1Phehlukwayo to Behrendorff

48.3Rabada to Behrendorff

2
Outside off, dabbed towards third man for a couple.

48.2Rabada to Behrendorff

2
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.

48.1Rabada to Khawaja

W
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.

47.6Morris to Khawaja

1
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.

47.5Morris to Khawaja

4
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!

47.4Morris to Starc

1
Full and wide outside off, squeezed through the covers for a run.

47.3Morris to Starc

4
FOUR! Nice shot! Full and around middle, Starc backs away and hammers it straight back past the non-striker, to the long on fence!

47.2Morris to Starc

6
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.

47.1Morris to Khawaja

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.

46.6Rabada to Khawaja

1
Outside off, driven through the covers for one.

46.5Rabada to Khawaja

46.4Rabada to Starc

1
A length ball on middle and leg, turned through mid-wicket for a run.

45.2Morris to Carey

W
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.

1
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.

44.5Phehlukwayo to Cummins

W
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.
