16:50 (IST)09 Nov 2018

WICKET! Mitchell Starc bowls a lethal yorker delivery to Kagiso Rabada and this match is now all but over for Proteas. South Africa 202/9

16:36 (IST)09 Nov 2018
That reaction, though!

Marcus Stoinis's reaction on LBW appeal:

16:33 (IST)09 Nov 2018

WICKET! And now it is all over for South Africa. A brilliant review call by skipper Aaron Finch gets Australia the prized wicket of David Miller. Miller was struck in the middle on a straight delivery by Marcus Stoinis, and even though he stepped too much outside, the replays give all three reds. SA 189/8

16:22 (IST)09 Nov 2018

WICKET! Dale Steyn has been dismissed for 3 by Marcus Stoinis. South Africa are in trouble now. They need someone to stick it out in the middle with David Miller.

16:21 (IST)09 Nov 2018
Fifty for David Miller

Slowly but steadily, David Miller has reached his half century. This is his 12th half century in ODIs. He becomes the first person in this Test to reach the landmark.

16:07 (IST)09 Nov 2018

GONE! Big wicket, as Dwaine Pretorious has been dismissed by Josh Hazlewood. Easy catch for Chris Lynn at midwicket. He doesn't miss too many. SA 174/6

15:59 (IST)09 Nov 2018
Situation right now

This match appears to be going right down to the wire. South Africa need 63 runs to win in 78 balls with 5 wickets in hand. 

Anything can happen, here.

15:26 (IST)09 Nov 2018

WOAH! It's come out of nowhere and will that derail South Africa's move towards the target. Faf du Plessis has chopped it on and Cummins strikes to remove him for 47 runs off 65 balls. Short of a length delivery and was well wide of off, du Plessis's feet went nowhere as he went for a cut, gets a big inside edge to hit the off-stump. South Africa are 142/5

15:18 (IST)09 Nov 2018
Less than 100 needed

Been five overs since the last boundary. South Africa happy to get to the target in singles and doubles. Not going for any big hits as the target appears closer. Under 100 needed to win now with 21 overs to go.

14:38 (IST)09 Nov 2018

Starc errs on his length and Faf du Plessis dispatches both for boundaries. First one is too full and wide off off and played through extra cover. The next one is too short and Du Plessis swivels and pulls it in front of square. An expensive over - 14 from it

14:16 (IST)09 Nov 2018

Another soft dismissal sees Klaasen walk back after scoring 14 runs from 17 balls. Stoinis the wicket-taker. It's not the greatest of deliveries - short, sits up and Klaasen looks to pull it away without a lot of intent. Ends up splicing it up in the air to short mid-wicket, where Lynn does well to get his fingers under with his low dive. South Africa are 68/4

14:06 (IST)09 Nov 2018

Klaasen with twin boundaries to get the 13th over underway. Adam Zampa gets the treatment. First one is pulled away in front of the square and the second towards deep mid-wicket

13:55 (IST)09 Nov 2018

UH-OH! Hazlewood to Hendricks and he's gone! Hendrics is removed for 16 runs from 27 balls and South Africa are 48/3. Hazlewood hits the area just outside the off stump and Hendricks has a poke at it. No foot movement into the shot and the edge falls for Carey.

13:49 (IST)09 Nov 2018

This is a game of gifts. Australia did in the first innings and now Aiden Markram doing the same. Hendricks nudges it through mid-wicket and despite taking a double, Markram pushes for a third - despite having seen Stoinis already there to the ball. The dive sees the bat hit the ground and pops up. It was over the line but in the air. South Africa are 46/2 with Markram dismissed for 19 runs from 17 balls

13:42 (IST)09 Nov 2018

Markram collecting boundaries in each over and keeping the run rate healthy. Meanwhile, "This is the fastest opening spell bowled by Mitchell Starc ever in terms of average speeds,"inform the commentators.

13:41 (IST)09 Nov 2018

South Africa's chase is off to a poor start. Quinton de Kock is dismissed for 9 and Starc gets the wicket. The uppish flick is straight down Zampa's throat at fine leg. He takes it with ease and South Africa are 18/1

12:19 (IST)09 Nov 2018

Australia are 231 all out with Adam Zampa the last wicket to fall. Rabada picks up his fourth wicket and Zampa is dismissed for 22 runs. The bouncer the difference once again. Banged in short and at the stumps, Zampa gets an awkward pull and the ball goes straight up in the air. Miller comes underneath it at mid-wicket to complete the catch.
