  • 22.5

    Pat Cummins to Bruyn, FOUR! Sealed in style! Hurled fuller outside off, de Bruyn gets a stride out and times the push through covers nicely. The ball has enough on it to trickle away to the fence to seal a SOUTH AFRICAN VICTORY! 1-1 stands the series with 2 more Tests to be played.

  • 22.4

    Pat Cummins to Bruyn, Another short ball, Theunis crouches low and lets it pass.

  • 22.3

    Pat Cummins to Plessis, Angling in on a length, Faf works it away towards fine leg for a single. Australia have just 3 more runs to play with.

  • 22.2

    Pat Cummins to Plessis, This length ball is defended off the back foot.

  • 22.1

    Pat Cummins to Plessis, Banged short on the stumps, du Plessis ducks to let it go.

    N Lyon to Bruyn, FOUR! Well played. Shortish a touch, Theunis de Bruyn goes on the back foot and punches it through covers for a boundary. The home side is just one hit away from a win.

  • 21.5

    N Lyon to Bruyn, This one is worked away to the on side off the pads.

  • 21.4

    N Lyon to Plessis, Du Plessis sweeps this through square leg, all along the ground. One run taken.

  • 21.3

    N Lyon to Bruyn, Risky stroke but why? De Bruyn gets down on a knee and swings across the line. Hits it aerially towards deep square leg for a single. What is the need to play such shots?

  • 21.2

    N Lyon to de Bruyn, Nicely played. Tossed up on off, Theunis just pushes it through covers and gets a couple. Just 10 more needed now.

  • 21.1

    N Lyon to Bruyn, Lyon continues round the wicket and delivers it on the stumps. De Bruyn blocks.

  • 19.6

    N Lyon to Plessis, Served on the stumps, defended off the front foot.

  • 19.5

    N Lyon to Plessis, Four Byes! The batter misses, keeper misses but South Africa won't mind. This is tossed up and spinning down leg. Du Plessis gets down to sweep but misses. The spin down leg means that Paine cannot do much and the ball flies right through Smith (at leg slip) and the keeper for a boundary.

  • 19.4

    N Lyon to Plessis, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.

  • 19.3

    N Lyon to Bruyn, This one is swept away through square leg for a single.

  • 19.2

    N Lyon to Bruyn, Floated around middle and leg, worked away towards fine leg for a couple.

  • 19.1

    N Lyon to de Villiers, OUT! Stop the press! An Aussie bowler has dismissed AB de Villiers for the first time in this series. Lyon entices de Villiers into coming forward with this floated delivery. The batter fell into the trap and ended up slinking down. However, he finds that he is deceived in flight. Looks to bunt it down somehow with his bat close to his pad but he ends up getting an inside edge. The ball goes towards Bancroft at short leg, who hangs onto the sharp chance by crouching low. The hosts are still 20 away from their destination. Is there a final twist in the tale left in the game?

  • 18.6

    Pat Cummins to Plessis, Outside off, left alone. A good over from Pat, successful one.

  • 18.5

    Pat Cummins to Plessis, Du Plessis blocks this one off the back foot.

  • 18.4

    Pat Cummins to Amla, OUT! 50th Test wicket for Pat Cummins! He bowled a similar one on the previous ball and Amla attempted a similar shot. This time the line was a bit closer and Hashim ends up getting a thick outside edge. That's enough for Paine to do the rest behind with a dive to his right. So, the bearded batter cannot quite stay in the middle till the end.

  • 18.3

    Pat Cummins to Amla, This is full and moving away a touch, Amla goes for the loose drive away from the body and gets beaten on account of the away movement there.

  • 18.2

    Pat Cummins to Amla, This is hurled down the leg side, Amla misses the attempted flick.

  • 18.1

    Pat Cummins to Villiers, On a length on the stumps, flicked away through square leg for one.

  • 17.6

    N Lyon to H Amla, FOUR! No chasing that, Marsh! Amla goes back and punches it through covers. This time there is good enough contact made to take the ball to the fence.

  • 17.5

    N Lyon to Amla, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.

  • 17.4

    N Lyon to Villiers, Pushed towards mid on for a single.

  • 17.3

    N Lyon to Amla, Marsh has done well! Flatter trajectory and quicker pace around off from round the wicket, Amla just punches it through cover-point. Mitchell chases it from covers and just manages to get some hand before slowing it down and going over the fence. He then comes back in and throws the ball back. From his face, one couldn't gauge whether he had done well. But after having multiple looks, it is good enough to conclude that he has saved a run for his side.

  • 17.2

    N Lyon to Amla, Flatter on the stumps, Hashim keeps it out from the crease.

  • 17.1

    N Lyon to Amla, Nicely tossed up on off, Amla keeps it out with a lunge forward.

    N Lyon to Amla, A run taken after placing it towards covers. 30 more needed for the win.

    N Lyon to Amla, The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot.

  • 15.3

    N Lyon to Amla, This ball is pushed towards mid off for nothing.

    N Lyon to Amla, Another one on the pads, flicked towards backward square leg. The fielder from short fine leg is quick to the ball and hence there is no chance of a run there.

  • 15.1

    N Lyon to Amla, From round the wicket, Lyon serves it on the pads. Hashim works it past short leg for a brace.

    Pat Cummins to Villiers, Sprayed full down the leg side, AB lets it be.

  • 14.5

    Pat Cummins to Amla, Another quick single. Amla has dared to take on Warner's arm here. Pushes this delivery towards wide mid off. David dives to his left and stops. Takes the ball and has a go at the bowler's end but misses. Amla had made it in.

  • 14.4

    Pat Cummins to Amla, On a length on off, blunted from the crease.

  • 14.3

    Pat Cummins to H Amla, Full outside off, driven straight to covers.

  • 14.2

    Pat Cummins to Amla, This length ball is blocked off the back foot to the off side.

  • 14.1

    Pat Cummins to Amla, FOUR! Edgy but South Africa won't mind! Short in length on the stumps, Amla goes for the pull but gets a top edge over the keeper and gets a boundary.

  • 11.3

    N Lyon to Villiers, Played to mid-wicket region by de Villiers.

  • 11.2

    N Lyon to Villiers, FOUR! Poor from Hazlewood! Lyon tosses this up on middle and leg. De Villiers reverse sweeps this towards short third man and the ball goes through the hands of Josh and all the way to the fence.

  • 9.6

    N Lyon to Amla, NOT OUT! Missing leg! Lyon serves this around off, Amla strides forward to block but misses due to the spin in and gets rapped on the front pad. The Aussies appeal but this time too, the umpire thinks that the ball has not done enough. Smith has a word with Lyon and decides to take this up. Hawk Eye shows us that the impact was in line but the ball would have gone to miss the leg stump. Cheers from the stands as they see the replay on the big screen. Australia lose their first review.

  • 9.5

    N Lyon to Amla, Strong appeal! But nothing from the umpire. Bowls this around off, Amla once again decides to block this with his pads. The Aussies think they have got him. After some conversation they don't take the review.

  • 9.4

    N Lyon to Amla, Amla flicks this away on the on side.

  • 9.3

    N Lyon to Amla, Amla does not offer a stroke to this and gets hit on his pad.

  • 8.6

    J Hazlewood to Markram, OUT! Beautifully bowled by Hazlewood and Australia get their second wicket. Markram has to go this time. After Mitchell Marsh dropped one previously, this time Smith does not take any chance and goes for the catch himself. Great line from Hazlewood, around off, forces Aiden to play a shot. The ball takes the fat outside edge and flies towards first slip but the Australian skipper moves to his left from second slip and takes a sharp catch. 69 more needed for the hosts.

  • 8.5

    J Hazlewood to Markram, The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot.

  • 8.4

    J Hazlewood to Markram, Length ball, drifting into the pads of Aiden who flicks it through mid-wicket for a brace.

    N Lyon to H Amla, FOUR! Delightful. It is always joy to watch a drive played against the spin. The beauty of that stroke is the footwork. This is tossed up outside off, Amla gets his front foot to the pitch of the ball and caresses it through covers. A boundary results and it reduces the runs needed to 71.

  • 7.5

    Lyon to Amla, Another appeal! Tossed up outside off, Hashim prods to defend that. His bat is close to his front pad but the ball strikes the latter and rolls to the off side. Another appeal not paid heed to. Perhaps the impact is outside off.

  • 7.4

    N Lyon to Amla, HUGE SHOUT! Floated outside off, Amla gets back and across and shoulders arms. The ball spins in and hits him on the pads, a bit high. The players appeal to no avail.

    Lyon to Elgar, OUT! Not a 10-wicket win for South Africa then, if the result is in their favour! What an inspiring bowling change this is. Nathan Lyon comes into the attack and immediately sends the southpaw back. He floats it around off, Elgar looks to flick it but gets it off the leading edge back towards the bowler. Lyon gets low forward and snaps it inches off the ground. The umpire isn't sure and hence prefers the third umpire to have a look. Multiple replays are summoned and it is concluded that the off spinner has done well. This is a carbon copy of his dismissal in the first innings of the first Test, the only difference being that here, Lyon had to take it getting low forward while then, he had to dive to his right. So, a happy meal for the Australians? The reason being, LUNCH has been taken.

    J Hazlewood to A Markram, CHANCE COMES, CHANCE GOES! Oh dear, Mitchell Marsh! How much time does it take to become a villain from a hero? He was lauded for his 96-run knock in Durban and then for turning the game with a crucial wicket in that first Test. Here too, his two strikes in the first essay was crucial in the context. Now when his side had a chance of making a match of this low target, he has spilled a chance. This is bowled outside off, Markram looks to defend but gets a thick outside edge. The ball flies to the right of Mitch Marsh at first slip, who gets in the position but fails to hang on. Immediately Shaun Pollock on air says that normally Shaun Marsh is the one standing in that position. Would it have mattered? He isn't the safest in the field either. Nonetheless, South Africa still have a clean slate as far as the wickets column is concerned.

    Rabada to Khawaja, OUT! 87 strikes for Australia. This time it is the worth of this partnership that has been broken. Kagiso Rabada is the man that gets the breakthrough. He steams in from round the wicket and lands it on a length around off. Khawaja misses defending that one and gets squared up a touch. The ball strikes him on the back pad that is right in front of the stumps. The finger is raised soon after the appeal is made. Khawaja knows he is in trouble and starts the walk back. But as an afterthought, he chats with his partner about the review and eventually walks away without taking one. The Hawk Eye is then flashed, which returns three reds. But had he taken it, the new batter would have had that many less deliveries to face. The tourists are just 34 ahead at the moment and have lost half their side.

Philander starts from round the wicket and lands it full around middle and leg. Khawaja misses the flick and gets struck on the front pad. An appeal is unsuccessful from the hosts. Now the review though process. Du Plessis is asked by the men behind the stumps about whether or not to take it. He is seen signaling that they are the best to know, maybe de Kock. Eventually opts for it. Missing leg says Hawk Eye. Poor judgement from the wicketkeeper yet again. He has made them lose both the reviews. So as much as it is good umpiring, it is a case of poor use of the DRS as well. A leg bye is taken amidst all of this.

That is pure luck for him and he knows it. After surviving a testing spell of bowling from the new-ball bowlers, just when the stage seemed set for Bancroft to open up a bit, he is gone. Nothing special on the delivery. A half volley outside off, Bancroft looks to drive but the ball sneaks back in, takes the inside edge and hits the pads. Now, the matter does not end there. The ball hits the ground after making contact with the boot and then the pads and just like water dripping off a leaking tap - tup, tup, tup - the ball rolls on to the stumps - tuck, tuck, tuck - Timber.

    K Maharaj to Khawaja, Full and outside off, the reverse sweep is attempted by Khawaja but he does not middle it at all. It goes off the bottom edge, all along the ground to first slip.

  • 14.5

    K Maharaj to Khawaja, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.

  • 14.4

    K Maharaj to Khawaja, On middle and leg, spinning in, Khawaja gets across and tucks it towards short leg. Substitute Heinrich Klaasen is a bit too eager and moves to his left while the ball drops to his right. Had he stayed in his normal position, he could have taken the catch. Quinton de Kock has a smile while looking at Klaasen.

    K Rabada to Khawaja, FOUR! Runs but the manner would please the bowler more. This is full and wide of off, Usman goes for the drive with no footwork. Makes good contact to send the ball racing through covers for a boundary. The reason the bowler wouldn't mind is, against a moving ball, a non-moving foot is always dangerous for the batsman.

  • 9.3

    K Rabada to Khawaja, Khawaja stands tall and defends this one from the crease.

  • 9.2

    K Rabada to Warner, OUT! Look at Rabada go here! This is a gem of a delivery to get rid of one of the best batters in the opposing line-up and doesn't Kagiso know that. He hurls it on a length around off, slanting away from Warner. All through this while, the ball was swinging both ways and that perhaps confuses David. He thinks this to be going away and looks to play for that but ends up playing all round it. This delivery nips in a touch and beats him on the inside. The next sound is the death clatter. Stumps pegged back. As if the manner of dismissal wasn't enough, the bowler goes all the way up to the departing batsman and screams in his face. Assuming that he is set to be banned for the next two games, he reckons that he'd rather go out doing more mischief than less. Personally, this isn't needed once you've got the better of someone based on skill. At this point, the Aussies are still 112 runs behind.

Shouldn't have been a run as du Plessis runs to his left and slides, but he ends up letting it through and conceding one. Who is that unfortunate bowler? Kagiso Rabada. Again.

A couple of leg byes. Mike Haysman on air says that this is good to see. He is of the opinion that aggression is not always about the big shots or being verbal but also about showing intent.

  • 7.2

    K Rabada to D Warner, FOUR! Ahhh! Edgy stuff. This is fuller in length. Warner looks to push it to the off side. But the ball takes the outside edge and rolls past the diving second slip fielder and trickles away to the fence.

    K Rabada to Bancroft, Landed on a length but the line is on the pads. Bancroft nudges it through backward square leg and sets off immediately, anticipating a couple. But the fielder in the deep is a tad slow to get to the ball and that prompts Warner to come back and complete the third. Excellent running.

The skipper looks to pick it up and throw it in a single motion but fails to gather the ball. It was struck well enough to roll away to the fence. Rabada is not pleased one bit.

    K Rabada to Bancroft, OUCH! Painful for sure, but knowing Bancroft, he seems to be a tough man. Length ball, nips in sharply after pitching. He fails to defend that and gets rapped on the abs region. No flinch post that. I remember, in the Ashes, he took some blows while fielding at short leg and a few more as he walked out to bat in the innings where he scored his best score in Tests so far. Not even a bit of fuss about that. Strong man this guy is.

  • 5.1

    K Rabada to Warner, Gone? ALMOST! Hurled on a length around middle and leg, Warner this time is again a tad late to get his bat down. Perhaps 146 kph is really a bit too fast. But thankfully for David, it is well on time. He ends up getting an inside edge onto his pads and the ball rolls away to the off side. What's more, he tries to retrieve the ball with his bat but then decides against it. A shout of anguish from Rabada.

    N Lyon to Maharaj, SIX! Ho ho ho! The lead crosses the 100-mark in some style! What did AB de Villiers tell Maharaj a ball ago? Not sure. Was it enjoy yourself? Who knows! Because Maharaj has jumped out of his crease and flayed this over mid-wicket! Massive! Remember, being a spinner himself, he would not like to get out or be dominated by an opposition spinner!

    N Lyon to Maharaj, SIX IT IS! Oh dear... schoolboy error from Usman Khawaja. Maharaj comes down the track and has a wild slog but mistimes it. The ball goes high in the air and Usman Khawaja runs to his right from deep mid-wicket. Gets to the ball, takes the catch but then realizes that he is actually going beyond the boundary. He tries to push the ball back and then take it in the second attempt after coming inside. He claims the catch but replays show that before flicking the ball back in the air, he himself was beyond the boundary! The entire South African dressing room is all smiles.

    Pat Cummins to Villiers, FOUR! 22nd Test hundred for AB de Villiers! What a knock it has been. With the platform set, one expected him to own the show. But his side was going through a collapse soon and he had to play the rescue act then, which he did brilliantly. Coming to this ball, it is on a back of a length on the stumps, he arches back and ramps it over the keeper for a boundary. Raises his helmet and bat and soaks in all the adulation that he gets.

  • 108.3

    Pat Cummins to V Philander, OUT! Terrific catch! Cameron Bancroft, you beauty! Most of the ingredients here are as similar as the first ball of the over. The only one that has changed here is that the catch is pouched. Length ball angling in, Philander looks to tuck it away and get to the other end. Ends up finding short leg, who takes it wonderfully. Nice reaction. Learning from the mistake quickly. Perhaps this came at a better height as well. The 84-run stand is broken now, with the Proteas ahead by 68.

Cummins hurls this on a length around middle and leg, it nips in a wee bit. Philander gets beaten and gets rapped on the front pad, albeit a bit high. The players appeal to no avail.

Philander thinks himself to be a good mind-reader and is ready to come back for the second, unmindful of the fielder getting to the ball. Has to be sent back by AB, which he does in time. Perhaps that's owing to the history of running between the wickets among them.

  • 104.1

    Pat Cummins to Villiers, FOUR! It may have been a nice introduction on air by Mark Nicholas, but certainly that's not the case here on the field. The first delivery of the day from Cummins has disappeared to the fence. It is short in length, de Villiers has all the time in the world to rock back and nail the pull through mid-wicket. South Africa cross 300, while AB is into the 90s now.

After getting the desired action from the batsman, the outside edge is taken. But the clever part is here - Vernon doesn't go at it with hard hands. Hence the ball dies down almost between the first slip and the keeper. Paine dives to his right and gets some glove to the one-bounced ball but can't do more.

This partnership is running with a run rate over 6. On the attack, the Proteas. Deficit is 33 runs.

    Marsh to Bruyn, OUT! Another one bites the dust! Marsh is just stupendous here in this spell. He bowls this full with some movement in to de Bruyn. Theunis looks to flick it with the angle but gets beaten on the inward movement and gets struck on the front pad. Looks to be a goner and so thinks umpire Dharmasena. Australia have just been on a roll since Tea, and perhaps, this should mean that they might delay taking the second new ball. With the Proteas being 60 runs adrift of the first innings total, the tourists will be garnering hopes of a lead now. Meanwhile, the Hawk Eye shows that the on-field call would have stayed as it shows the ball to be clipping the leg stump.

The ball raps him on the back pad and perhaps he knows he is a goner, much before the umpire raises the finger on the Aussies' appeal. But de Villiers calls his mate and asks him to take the review, which he does. The replays show that the skipper was a touch lazy in getting his bat down and that turns out to be his undoing.

De Villiers fails to flick it away as it is a top class full delivery. Hazlewood turns in to appeal but withdraws it soon. It was sliding down leg anyway. However, AB de Villiers was all in readiness to signal for the DRS, in case the decision was to go against him.

    J Hazlewood to Villiers, This one is punched towards covers for nothing.

  • 73.4

    J Hazlewood to Villiers, FOUR! Hazlewood had some field changes before he steamed in from round the wicket for this one. A short leg was positioned and so was a man at deep square leg. He runs in and delivers a back of a length ball around off and middle. No, it didn't turn out to be a double bluff, for starters. De Villiers arches back and looks to guide it to third man. The result is the desired one but not the manner. He gets it off the bottom off the blade and is good enough to find the gap between the slip cordon and gully.

    J Hazlewood to Elgar, OUT! Oh dear! One brings two for the Australians. Here, we can say that the band is to be blamed. It came to the aid of the Australians, by distracting the batter. Hazlewood continues round the wicket and lands it on a length just outside off. Like he has been doing many a times, Elgar has a feel for it yet again. Only difference, an unfortunate one for him, being that this time the ball takes the feather before settling down in Paine's gloves. On appealing, umpire Kumar Dharmasena immediately raises the finger in force, perhaps signifying to the band members that a player from their nation is out because of them. Nonetheless, a stuttering ordeal ends for the southpaw.

    M Starc to Villiers, Full and down the leg side, de Villiers fails to flick it away.

  • 66.4

    M Starc to H Amla, OUT! CASTLED! The fortress named the Mighty Hash has been breached. What a delivery that is! Whenever Mitchell Starc's name was taken today, talks about reverse swing weren't far off and both of them have combined to see the back of Amla. The left-armer comes round the wicket and spears in a very full length ball around off. The reverse swing makes the ball move away just a wee bit. Amla has covered to play the initial angle but cannot do anything about the lateral movement. Next up, he sees his off stump pegged back. Ecstasy on Starc and the Australians' faces is evident with regards to the enormity of that wicket. South Africa are still 88 runs behind.

    M Marsh to Elgar, Seems rattled by the last blow. Marsh overpitches it outside off, Elgar tries to blast it through the line but fails to make any connection. Mind you, this is the first time I'm seeing the full flow of his bat along with the followthrough. Has he woken up now?

  • 61.5

    M Marsh to Elgar, Elgar is hurt! Marsh is bowling with a gentle pace but is getting some movement. One such delivery is this which curls back in after landing on a length around off. Elgar tries to defend but it takes the inside edge and hits him on the back leg, the unprotected area beneath the thigh pad. Dean takes some moment to catch his breath.

  • 60.4

    Pat Cummins to Elgar, A bouncer, around off, Elgar bows down his head and lets it through. If you watch that in slow motion, it will look like Elgar was doing the famous dab that most footballers do nowadays.

One thing didn't change though. Even this one was off the outside edge. He tries to flash a shortish ball outside off and edges it down to third man (through the vacant third slip region) for a boundary. Luck and patience personified knock!

  • 59.1

    M Marsh to Elgar, Does his blade have a middle, asks my frustrated colleague, Suds? It's a short ball outside off, Elgar tries to punch it through the line but it takes the inside half of the bat and rolls to mid off.

Amla in his true style ain't going overboard with his celebration. Just a little raise of his bat and that's all. There is still a long way to go. South Africa still trail by 103 runs.
