Full and outside off, swinging in, driven straight to mid off.

48.1Starc to Malan

Starc goes for the yorker, but ends up bowling a low full toss. Malan alertly plays it towards mid off and seeing that the fielder has backed off, calls for a quick single. Miller to hit the winning runs then?

47.6Cummins to Malan

SIX! Unbelievable batting. A short ball, around middle, Malan gets across and just plays a short-arm jab. The ball travels over deep backward square leg!

47.5Cummins to Malan

2LB
A short ball, outside off, Malan looks to pull but is a tad early into the shot. The ball goes off his bicep, over the keeper, towards third man. Two leg byes taken.

WIDE. A bouncer, outside off, Malan lets that sail away over his head.

46.3Starc to Miller

46.2Starc to Miller

0
Half volley outside off, driven straight to short extra cover.

45.6Zampa to Malan

Yes, he can! Good comeback by the bowler. 29 needed in the last 4 now. Malan comes down the track and hits it nicely but straight to covers.

45.5Zampa to Malan

0
One more dot! On middle, Malan works it to mid-wicket. Can he end the over with the three dots in a row?

45.4Zampa to Malan

0
Fires it very full and on middle, it is jammed back to the bowler.

45.3Zampa to Malan

4
FOUR! Just over! Just the two the difference between the balls to be bowled and the runs needed. This is floated up on off, Malan lofts it well over the cover fielder and bags a boundary.

45.2Zampa to Miller

1
On the pads, Miller sensibly plays it towards short fine leg for one.

45.1Zampa to Miller

2
One more two! Shorter and just outside off, Miller gets it behind point and takes two.

A couple to end! 9 from the over! Shorter and outside off, this is slapped through covers for two. 36 needed in 30 balls.

44.5Cummins to Miller

1
Fumble and an easy run! Fuller and around off, it is hit hard straight to mid off. The batters go for one and complete it as the fielder fumbles. 50-run stand up. Another crucial one. Can they take the hosts over the line now?

44.4Cummins to Malan

1
Now a single! On a length around off, it is pushed through covers for one. Sensible batting would do it for the hosts now.

44.3Cummins to Malan

4
FOUR! Poor ball and put away! Cummins goes wide of the crease and angles this into the pads, Malan works it down to the fine leg fence and bags a vital boundary.

44.2Cummins to Malan

0
OHHH! This is on a length and outside off, Malan goes after it away from his body but misses. A dot, Australia need more of these.

44.1Cummins to Miller

1
A slower short ball, Miller pulls it through square leg and gets to the other end.

43.6Starc to Malan

4
EDGY FOUR! Brings up his ton in streaky fashion but he won't care! A night to remember. A golden duck on debut and follows it up with a ton. Brilliant. He though will know his job is yet not done. A full delivery on middle, it tails away a touch. Malan looks to jam it out but it goes off the outside edge down to the third man fence. Once again the last ball spoils the over. 45 needed in 36.

43.5Starc to Miller

1
Just a single! A low full toss on off, it is hit towards mid off for one.

43.4Starc to Malan

1
Fuller and around off, Malan looks to force it through the off side but it goes off the inner half through mid-wicket for one. He moves onto 98.

43.3Starc to Miller

1
On middle, this is worked wide of mid on for one.

43.2Starc to Miller

2
Another couple! Good running this! On a length and around off, Miller guides it down to third man and takes two. Longer part of the ground so they take one for the throw.

43.1Starc to Miller

2
Two to begin Starc's spell! This is full and outside off, Miller strokes it through covers. They take one and go for the second. The fielder fires it towards Starc who fails to collect the ball and whips the bails off with his hands.

1
