50FOURParnell to Johnson, FOUR, 20 runs from the over, very poor one from Parnell, misses his yorker again, offers a length ball that is bludgeoned back past the umpire. Australia end up on a healthy 327 on the board327/7
49.4SIXParnell to Johnson, SIX, you can't be bowling length balls at Johnson, Parnell misses his line and this back of a length ball is hoisted high and way over wide long on for another maximum321/7
49.1SIXParnell to Johnson, SIX, poor bowling from Parnell, bangs one short and just outside off, right in the zone for Johnson, he swivels across and pulls it over mid-wicket for a maximum313/7
48OUTMcLaren to S Smith, out Bowled!! An excellent cameo from Smith ends, this was full and on of, Smith made room and was looking to go over extra cover, misses it completely and the off-stump is pegged back. Relief for McLaren, but Smith has done his job here. S Smith b McLaren 31(19) [4s-4]301/7
47.4FOURMcLaren to S Smith, FOUR, this is turning out to be a poor over from McLaren, length ball and well outside off, Smith makes room, frees his arms and carves it over point for another boundary299/6
47.3FOURMcLaren to S Smith, FOUR, this is poor bowling from McLaren, another wide full toss, Smith reaches out and slaps it square behind point for another boundary295/6

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
46.3FOURFaulkner to Duminy, FOUR, he's somehow managed to time an inswinging yorker very well to pick up four! Duminy had to adjust his stance as this cramped him for room, but he did well to make the adjustment and flick wide of mid-on326/3
45.3FOURKane Richardson to de Villiers, FOUR, he might not be moving his feet all that well, but boy, the hand-eye co-ordination is still good enough to time the ball! Full delivery on the off stump, de Villiers muscles it flat over mid-off317/3
43.4SIXKane Richardson to Duminy, SIX, wow! This little lad is a clean striker of the ball mind you! Full and in the slot, can't bowl those at this stage of the innings, Duminy waited for the ball and muscled it back over the bowler's head302/3
38.3FOURFaulkner to de Villiers, FOUR, AB isn't looking physically great but he continues to march on, short of a length and well outside off, AB makes room and slaps it wide off extra cover for a boundary264/3
38OUTStarc to du Plessis, out Caught by S Smith!! The short ball has consumed Faf. This was banged in short and just outside off, du Plessis was looking for the pull, gets a top-edge behind mid-wicket. Smith runs back and takes a well judged catch over his shoulder. Faf walks off to a warm applause from his mates in the dressing room. du Plessis c S Smith b Starc 106(98) [4s-11 6s-1]257/3
37.5FOURStarc to du Plessis, FOUR, smashed, fuller length delivery and on the stumps, Faf gets forward and drills it back over AB's head, no need to run for those. This match is fast slipping away from Australia257/2
