32.5Perera to Miller

1LB
VICTORY BY 6 WICKETS. And with 103 balls to spare. South Africa have cruised though again. A leg bye, but it counts in the scoreboard. A length ball on leg, Miller looks for a flick but the ball hits him on his pads and deflects towards square leg. The winning run is completed with ease. Another comprehensive victory by the hosts. Now they lead the series 4-0, and with this professional attitude they leave the field with heads held high.
