Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
49.5OUTMcLaren to M Marsh, out Johnson Run Out!! 1 run completed. A direct-hit from long-off and Johnson is just short! Widish ball from McLaren, Marsh fails to connect well, the ball goes off the toe-end and rolls towards long-off, Johnson charges back for the second but Marsh sends him back. It was an accurate throw from the deep and Johnson is short despite putting in a full length dive. Johnson run out (Phangiso) 2(2)281/7
49.4SIXMcLaren to M Marsh, SIX, whoaaahhh!! What a hit! Short and asking to be hit, Marsh doesn't miss out, stands tall and pulls powerfully over the deep mid-wicket fence. This is some hitting by Marsh280/6
49.3SIXMcLaren to M Marsh, SIX, McLaren, weren't watching Marsh smash Steyn? Can't bowl full toss at this man, surely not in the last over of the innings. Easily lifted over long-off for a flat six274/6
49FOURM Morkel to M Marsh, no ball, FOUR, poor ball! That spoils a good over. High full toss, above the waist and called a no-ball. Marsh gets across the sticks a touch and helps it away to the right of short fine leg265/6
48.3OUTM Morkel to Haddin, out Caught by Phangiso!! Another widish delivery from Morne, Haddin moves to the off-side and tries to muscle it over deep extra, but he slices it high in the air, extra-cover moves to his left and takes a good catch. They check for the no-ball, but Morne had just enough behind the line. Haddin c Phangiso b M Morkel 11(17) [4s-1]258/6
47.3FOURMcLaren to M Marsh, FOUR, you got to pitch the ball to this man! Low full toss on the leg stump, Marsh flicks it powerfully and sends it to the deep mid-wicket fence256/5

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
44OUTMaxwell to Tahir, out Caught by M Marsh!! Australia win with a bonus point and qualify for the final. Flighted delivery outside off stump, Tahir goes for a big hit but mistimes it, long-off runs forward and takes an easy catch. Tahir c M Marsh b Maxwell 2(4)220/10
42.4OUTJohnson to M Morkel, out Bowled!! What a sight for a fast bowler, the leg stump goes cartwheeling towards what would have been a leg slip! No feet movement from Morne, tries to drive the fuller length delivery but leaves a big bat-pad gap and it sneaks through to disturb the wood work behind. Just a formality now for Australia. M Morkel b Johnson 0(2)217/9
41.5OUTKane Richardson to du Plessis, out Hit Wkt!! Oh dear! Disastrous way to get out and he's livid with himself. Faf went deep in the crease to work this short of length delivery into the on-side, but he's disturbed the off stump with his back leg. A great knock comes to an end. Maybe you can now say that South Africa are out of the contest. Top knock by Faf! He walked in with his side under a bit of pressure, took his time and then upped the ante to score a magnificent hundred. du Plessis hit wkt b Kane Richardson 126(109) [4s-8 6s-6]214/8
40.3OUTJohnson to Steyn, out Steyn Run Out!! Steyn would be kicking himself for hitting this too hard. Short of a length delivery outside off stump, Steyn flat-batted it straight to mid-off and set off, Smith quickly grabs the ball and fires a direct-hit. In fact, he breaks the middle stump as well. Steyn was just short of the crease and he knew straightaway that he was in trouble. Steyn run out (S Smith) 5(10) [4s-1]206/7
39.2SIXStarc to du Plessis, SIX, full delivery on the leg stump, front leg out of the way, and baaangg! This time it goes wide of long-on. Great start to the over for South Africa, remember, this is the last over the powerplay202/6
39.1SIXStarc to du Plessis, SIX, South Africa are in the game until this man is at the crease! Short delivery on the leg stump, du Plessis slogs it high in the air and just clears the deep mid-wicket fence196/6
