BALL BY BALL
29.2 - M Stoinis to D Miller
Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Hazlewood. Easy work for Miller. He tucks his first ball off the pads, and they get the two runs required to finish things off.Australia start their summer of cricket in the worse possible fashion. They have been thrashed by the Proteas. The South African seamers were world class, and the Aussies just couldn't handle it. Some poor shot selections, but credit must go to the visitors. 152 was never going to be enough, and they made the chase look comfortable, with 124 balls to spare. Two more games to play in this series, so it can still go either way, but it is advantage South Africa. Join us on Friday to see who comes out on top in the second match.
29.1 - M Stoinis to H Klaasen
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to first slip, by Finch. Nicked, and snaffled at first slip. Klaasen pokes out at this delivery, tentatively looking to pick the gap and hit the winning runs. The ball kisses the edge, and Finch makes no mistake. Nice little spell from Stoinis here. He's got his third.
