South Africa have done it

21:20 (IST)23 Feb 2020
SA need to defend 17

17 required off the last over! South Africa are having a conference out at the center. If they can get Warner, no meeting required. Warner stands between South Africa and the series.

21:18 (IST)23 Feb 2020
WICKET!

It's all happening right now! Now Wade goes, his leading edge caught by Rabada in his follow through. Aus need 20 from 11 balls and in walks Agar.

21:13 (IST)23 Feb 2020
What a catch!!!!

Brilliant catch two fielders helping each other, Faf and Miller and much dot ball needed in this game for SA. Marsh skies Ngidi high to the straight boundary, Faf takes the catch and as he falls shovels a pass to Miller who completes the dismissal diving forward. Much better over from Ngidi as Marsh is GONE for 6. 21 from 13 needed by Australia.

Bowled!!

DROP & WICKET! Ngidi gets Finch clean bowled for 14 just after he was dropped. Ngidi thumps his chest. That ball was back of a length which closed in on Finch as he looks to force it through the off-side and is chopped back on off the inside edge. AUS- 49/1 after 5 overs

20:33 (IST)23 Feb 2020
Boundary

Warner works the short ball past the third man region. This is poor bowling really. Nortje's straying it on the pads when fine leg is inside the ring while Rabada's doing the mirror opposite but just as worse. AUS- 29/0 after 3 overs

20:33 (IST)23 Feb 2020
