Commentary

  , Peterson to Cummins, 1 run, what a catch that is! Or is it? He came down the track and looked to slog it over mid-on. Didn't get to the pitch of the ball and didn't middle it. Went in the air to the right of mid-on, and Miller threw himself horizontally and came away with the ball in his right hand and a look of disbelief on his face. They aren't sure he took it on the full, and they're checking now. Yeah, it's bounced, and Australia have won, because the batsmen crossed. They looked dead and buried when Wade joined Smith, but they've ended up winning with an over to spare.
  , Peterson to Smith, OUT, gone! That was tossed up nice and slow and Smith went for the big heave over the leg side. Was through his shot extremely early and the ball crashes into middle stump. Walks in to a standing ovation from the small crowd here
  , Peterson to Faulkner, 1 run, goes back to a length ball on off stump, makes room to punch it to sweeper cover
  , Peterson to Faulkner, FOUR, down the leg side now and Faulkner sweeps, and hits it nice and clean, down to the deep backward square leg boundary
  , Peterson to Faulkner, 1 wide, fired flat and full, but also wide outside off
  , Peterson to Faulkner, no run, what happened there? Went for the big hit over the leg side, and it hit his thigh and was rolling towards the stumps, but he reached behind him and tapped the ball away
  , Peterson to Smith, 1 run, down the track, hits it hard down to long-on
  , Abbott to Faulkner, FOUR, boom! That was short, and that is a familiar sight by now. Left leg moves away to make room. Arms swing through free and unfettered, ball disappears to the leg-side boundary.
  , Abbott to Faulkner, 2 runs, back of a length on middle and leg, swatted away down to long leg
  , Abbott to Faulkner, no run, wide yorker. Looks to back away and slap it through the off side. Is too early into the shot and drags it back to the bowler
  , Abbott to Faulkner, FOUR, full-toss on leg stump and Faulkner clears his front leg and mows it over wide mid-on. Really poor ball, that. That was a baseball hit
  , Abbott to Faulkner, no run, middle-stump yorker, swiped down the ground to mid-on. Thought about going for the single for the misfield, turned around in the end and slid to beat the throw home to the keeper's end.
  , Abbott to Smith, 3 runs, full on off stump, and he makes a little bit of room and punches it away to the left of cover. Behardien chases back and throws to the bowler's end. They take him on and Smith wins the race, getting to the crease before Abbott can reach in front of the stumps and collect the throw
  , Steyn to Faulkner, FOUR, length ball on off stump and he clears his front leg and launches it back over the bowler, clean, flat hit, bounces over the long-on boundary
  , Steyn to Faulkner, FOUR, short ball, sits up, and Faulkner clubs it away to the midwicket boundary. Poor ball, and it was severely dealt with
  , Steyn to Smith, 1 run, and that's his hundred. Ungainly way to get it, a mistimed pull that rolls away towards square leg, but what an innings this has been. Australia were sinking without a trace when he began
  , Steyn to Faulkner, 1 bye, shortish slower ball outside off and he plays and misses. de Kock misjudges the bounce behind the stumps and they sneak a quick bye. Steyn, needless to say, is livid
  , Steyn to Smith, 1 run, full outside off and Smith takes on the fielder after driving to the right of Peterson at short extra cover. He flicks at the stumps and misses, and Smith dives to regain his crease. Peterson is left-handed but he managed to underarm it right-handed
  , Steyn to Faulkner, 1 run, back of a length outside off, dabbed away to third man
  , Abbott to Smith, 2 runs, full on middle and leg, flicked towards deep backward square leg
  , Abbott to Faulkner, 1 run, in the blockhole on middle stump, pushed down to mid-off for the single
  , Abbott to Faulkner, 2 runs, yorker on middle and leg, clipped towards deep midwicket
  , Abbott to Faulkner, no run, full on middle stump, punched back down the ground and the bowler gets a hand to it to prevent the single
  , Abbott to Smith, 1 run, very full outside off and he opens his bat face and squeezes it out to sweeper cover
  , Abbott to Faulkner, 1 run, back of a length outside off, steered down to third man
  , Parnell to Faulkner, 1 run, back of a length outside off, and he opens his face to pick up another single to third man
  , Parnell to Smith, 1 run, shuffles across. Parnell bowls it short and he pulls it round to deep backward square leg
  , Parnell to Faulkner, 1 run, back of a length outside off, dabbed down to third man
  , Parnell to Faulkner, FOUR, in the blockhole on leg stump. Looks to clear his front leg and slog it over the leg side, gets a thick inside edge down to the fine leg boundary
  , Parnell to Smith, (no ball) 1 run, full-toss on off stump and he's clipped it down to deep square leg. No-ball as well, and the umpire signals for the free hit
