Commentary
  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Glenn Maxwell. Full toss, to leg backing away Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Behardien. That was a borderline no ball on height but the umpires allow it, Maxwell is out and so are Australia, comfortably beaten once again by South Africa who by no means were at full strength. With Chris Lynn at the crease Australia looked really dangerous but Morris cleaned him up with a superb yorker that proved the decisive moment in the game. That's it from me then, until next time, goodnight.

  • 9.5 - Lungi Ngidi to Nathan Coulter-Nile. Slower ball full toss, to leg backing away Slog, mis-timed to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Rabada.

  • 9.1 - SIX! Lungi Ngidi to Glenn Maxwell. Length ball, outside off stump backing away Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. That one is out of the middle, and it goes all the way for six, better from Maxwell.

  • 8.6 - Kagiso Rabada to Glenn Maxwell. Half volley, down leg side backing away flick, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Morris.

  • 8.5 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Glenn Maxwell. Short, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, top edge past fine leg for 4 runs. A top-edge and that will be another boundary for Maxwell. It's all in vain for Australia at this stage though.
