World Cup 2019, Australia vs South Africa, Aus vs SA Highlights: South Africa chose to bat after winning the toss against Australia, at Old Trafford, Manchester on Saturday.

After a brilliant start by the South African opening batsmen, Aiden Markram and Quinton de Kock, scoring 72 from the first nine overs, Australia took charge of the game. Nathan Lyon bagged the wicket of Markram, before dismissing de Kock who scored his 24th ODI half-century against the Aussies. Faf du Plessis took charge and scored his 12th ODI century while maintaining a 151-run partnership with Rassie van der Dussen. After Duminy and Pretorius was dismissed by Starc, van der Dussen continued on to score his ODI highest 95, leading South Africa to a total of 325/6.

Australia lost Aaron Finch to Imran Tahir in the sixth over itself, before Usman Khawaja was retired hurt. Steve Smith was dismissed by Dwaine Pretorius in the seventh over, which put David Warner under a lot of responsibility. Alex Carey came up with a stellar show, his highest ODI score, but it was too little too late as South Africa won by 10 runs.

World Cup 2019, Australia vs South Africa Highlights:

01:52 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Game over

Lyon holes out in the deep. South Africa get the 2 points. Australia finish at 2nd spot in the points table and they will play the second semifinal against England at Edgbaston.

01:46 (IST)07 Jul 2019

Rabada strikes! Starc's bails are sent flying. Is that the end of Australia's chances? 18 needed in the last over. Lyon and Behrendorff out there. Tahir is not thrown the ball, as many of us had been hoping. Tahir will bowl 9 overs in his last ODI. Andile Phehlukwayo will bowl South Africa's last over of the 2019 World Cup.

01:45 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Runs are keeping on coming

Australia find ways of somehow keeping the score ticking. What a champions side this is! They are not giving up. Rabada is bowling a super over though. 20 needed off 8 balls.

01:42 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Rabada bowls Khawaja

Perfect yorker and the perfect sight for a fast bowler! Khawaja's stumps are in disorder, Khawaja is walking back. We are still waiting on more news of his injury. Let's hope that is not his last contribution in this World Cup. Jason Behrendorff comes in at No.10.

01:39 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Starc goes big

Mitchell Starc giving the Aussies a reason to smile. Hits a big six. 81 metres. Maybe Australia need Starc to be on strike more than Khawaja.
Morris misses on his length again and Starc again hits him for a four. Khawaja manages to time it to the boundary as well. Morris bowls an expensive over. Australia need 25 from the last two overs.

01:34 (IST)07 Jul 2019
South Africa pull it back

Rabada, bowling the 47th over, is getting the better of the Australian batsmen. Khawaja flays his bat at it but mistimes it. This, and their hold on top spot, is slipping out of their grasp now.
Unless Khawaja has different ideas! Hits a four off the 5th ball of the over and then takes a single to take strike in the next over. 42 needed in the last 3 overs now.

01:27 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Disaster for Australia

Carey is gone! Smiles of relief from the South Africa side. And oh! Usman Khawaja, who retired hurt earlier in the day, comes back out. Could he do it for Australia? You can see how much Australia want to hold on to that top position in the points table. Nobody wants to face England in the semifinal.

01:25 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Last 5 overs to go

52 runs needed. Carey is approaching a century. If you thought his knock against New Zealand was going to be his biggest contribution this World Cup, well, now you know better. He is now on 85. This is his highest ODI score. Chris Morris brought back into the attack.

01:22 (IST)07 Jul 2019

South Africa get another important wicket. Cummins goes for the big shot but holes out in the deep. Duminy, playing his last ODI, covered a lot of ground and got under it. Carey, the main man, still out there. This match is all on him. Starc comes out to join him.

01:18 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Carey putting pressure on SA

Tahir in the 43rd over. Shamsi in the 44th. Alex Carey is blasting away the Proteas spinners like they are not there. The equation has been brought down to 57 runs needed in the last 6 overs. Such a comeback from them in this match.

01:12 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Australia still holding on

Alex Carey is brilliant and he is particularly brilliant against spin. He scores at +1.28 runs per over above expectation against the slower bowlers. The only Australian ODI batsmen since 1999 with a higher True Run Rate v spin than him are Maxwell, Gilchrist & Finch. 88 from 50 balls is the equation the Australian's are working with at Old Trafford. Alex Carey and Pat Cummins at the crease.

01:01 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Warner is dismissed

After a big knock, Australia's main man Warner is dismissed. Great catch by Chris Morris to bring about his end. Big wicket! Pat Cummins has come in but it is Carey who must take the lead in this chase now. Still plenty to get, but Australia are just about hanging on to hope.

00:48 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Two hundred up

With boundaries coming every over now, Australia have a glimmer of hope now. 42 runs in the last 5 overs. Carey punishes Shamsi in this over. And then Warner with two more. Such smart batting from Australia. 16 runs from that over. AUS are 215/4 after 37 overs.

00:35 (IST)07 Jul 2019

WHAT AN INNINGS! David Warner scores his 17th ODI century in the chase in exactly 100 balls. AUS are 183/4 after 33.4 overs.

00:24 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Carey cares for Australia

Carey is charged up and he is showing it. With two boundaries in the over to Duminy, and getting 10 runs from it, he is showing that the match is far from over. Warner is on 88 and Carey is on 26. AUS are 167/4 after 32 overs.

00:18 (IST)07 Jul 2019
Warner the only hope?

Australia are now getting consistent runs, albeit it is just five. But Warner is still at it, hitting a brilliant boundary to Duminy, getting 7 runs in the over. AUS are 148/4 after 30 overs. 

00:08 (IST)07 Jul 2019
South Africa in control

Just scoring 12 runs from the last three overs, the Australians have slowed down. AUS are 131/4 after 27 overs. 

23:56 (IST)06 Jul 2019

WHAT A CATCH! Maxwell is dismissed by Rabada after athletics from de Kock. Deep deep trouble for the Australians. AUS are 119/4 after 24.1 overs

23:50 (IST)06 Jul 2019
Australia hanging on

The required runrate is on the rise as Australia have a target of 326 runs. Warner is at 66 with Maxwell on the other side, facing Rabada's wrath. They need to sort it out soon and get going with the runs. Just the three runs from the over. AUS are 116/3 after 23 overs. 

23:42 (IST)06 Jul 2019
Can Australia turn it around?

After Stoinis was dismissed by a runout by Rabada/de Kock, Maxwell has been brought on, and it all depends on him and Warner to save the sinking ship. The runs dried up in Shamsi's over, but they came back in Phehlukwayo's over as both Warner and Maxwell hit boundaries. 10 runs off the over. SA are 107/3 after 21 overs.
