Commentary

  , Lyon to McLaren, no run, beaten! McLaren's defence is beaten with the turn after it pitched outside off and Haddin whips the bails too, but his back foot is in the crease
  , Lyon to du Plessis, 1 run, flighted just outside off, tapped to square leg with the turn for one
  , Lyon to McLaren, 1 run, whipping it against the turn from outside off, it chips in the air between cover point and point for one
  , Starc to McLaren, 1 run, swinging in from outside off, McLaren defends and an inside edge goes close to leg stump after hitting the pad and they take a quick single
  , Starc to du Plessis, 1 run, responds with a short ball and it's pulled to deep midwicket
  , Starc to du Plessis, SIX, charges down the ground and that's a powerful and flat six! He came down and took the ball as a half-volley to smash it over the bowler's head for a flat six
  , Starc to du Plessis, no run, takes a step down and defends the length ball back to the bowler
  , Starc to du Plessis, no run, on length and well outside off, Faf looked to tap it but the ball held its line and bounced a bit extra
  , Starc to du Plessis, no run, angled in from round the wicket, Faf defends it to the off side
  , Lyon to McLaren, no run, leans forward this time to defend the length delivery
  , Lyon to McLaren, FOUR, straight down the ground and that's a handsome one from McLaren! It was full on off and he drove it down the ground, with a straight bat over the bowler's head for a four. There's nobody in the deep
  , Lyon to du Plessis, 3 runs, he's not going to stop them - another paddle sweep and this time they get three because of a fumble at fine leg by Steven Smith
  , Lyon to du Plessis, 2 runs, tries another paddle sweep and nearly yorks himself, he pulled out at the end and dug it out towards backward square leg
  , Lyon to du Plessis, 2 runs, flighted on off this time and Faf does what he does very well, paddle sweeps it fine on the leg side for two
  , Lyon to du Plessis, no run, bit of flight on middle stump, turned to midwicket
  , Starc to McLaren, 2 runs, angled in towards the batsman's pads, it's tucked to fine leg where a fumble gives them a chance for the second
  , Starc to du Plessis, 1 run, tries a yorker, it's a low full toss on off stump, pushed down to long-off for one
  , Starc to McLaren, 1 run, cutting in a little bit from off, turned to square leg for one
  , Starc to McLaren, no run, full and just outside off, pushed down to mid-off off the front foot
  , Starc to du Plessis, 1 run, much closer to middle and leg, tucked off the back foot towards midwicket
  , Starc to du Plessis, SIX, what a shot! Scintillating shot from Faf as he came down the track and took it on the full to loft it very high and long over long-on for a massive six
  , Lyon to du Plessis, 1 run, full on off stump, drives it down to long-on to end the over
  , Lyon to McLaren, 1 run, quicker one towards leg stump and it goes towards point after an edge
  , Lyon to McLaren, no run, flighted on middle and it's pushed back to the bowler, nearly carried to the bowler
  , Lyon to du Plessis, 1 run, turning in from just outside off, Faf goes back and helps it with the turn to fine leg
  , Lyon to McLaren, 1 run, short and wide outside off and there's enough time for him to go back and punch it to sweeper cover
  , Lyon to du Plessis, 1 run, a bit of flight on middle and leg, tucked off the pad to square leg
  , Johnson to McLaren, no run, beaten again as the ball comes in towards the pad, he looked to flick it off the pad but missed and the ball strayed to the off side
  , Johnson to McLaren, no run, fuller on middle and leg, pushed down the ground to mid-on
  , Johnson to McLaren, no run, loud lbw appeal as he's hit on the back pad for the ball that was angled in from outside off. The ball might have been a bit too high as Aleem Dar didn't react much. Not much footwork from the batsman
