Over 3.5 J Hazlewood bowls a pitched up delivery to Aiden Markram, out Caught by Smith!! The batsman went after a slightly fuller ball outside off and edged it for the man at second slip to dive to his left and take a good low catch.

Over 32.4 J Hazlewood bowls it short of length to Hashim Amla, out Caught by Cummins! Amla goes for the pull, doesn't control it because of the bounce, the ball takes the top edge and flies high in the air, fine leg runs in and takes it.

Over 62.5 Pat Cummins good length delivery to AB de Villiers, out Caught by Warner!! AB decided to go for the drive straight of mid-off, played the ball much sonner than he wanted and chipped it straight into the bucket hands of Warner.

Over 66.6 Pat Cummins good length delivery to Faf du Plessis, out Caught by Smith!!Faf not in good nick and seeminly his mind's wobbled with plenty of uncertainties. Like this one. Wafts at a wide one and sends a regulation catch to Smith at second slip.  

Over 70.3 Pat Cummins good length delivery to Temba Bavuma, out Caught by Smith!! Bavuma tries to defend with hard hands and the outside edge goes to Smith again at second slip.

Over 74.6 Pat Cummins good length delivery to Quinton de Kock, out Caught by Paine!! It was too close to the body with Cummins angling it in from round the wicket, de Kock plays the pull and nicks off. A faint edge it was through to the keeper. 

Over 82.3 Mitchell Marsh good length delivery to Vernon Philander, out Caught by Paine!! The line outside off and the batsman decides to go fishing. Australia pocket a reward thanks to that. A fine edge on the poke and taken by the keeper as it went low to him.

Over 83.5 Mitchell Starc good length delivery to Keshav Maharaj, out Caught by Bancroft!! That was slightly on the fuller side, the batsman drives on the up and the man at cover takes it.

Over 97.1 Nathan Lyon bowls a tossed up delivery to Kagiso Rabada, out Caught by Smith! Pitches outside off and spins away, luring Rabada into the drive, the ball takes the outside edge and Smith takes a good catch at slip.

Over 97.5 Nathan Lyon bowls a tossed up delivery to Morne Morkel, out Caught by Smith!!  it was pushed through a bit, spun from a good length, took the edge and Smith takes a simple catch.South Africa all out for 311 runs
