For his 40-ball 77, David Warner is the Man of the Match.
...
Wow, just WOW. What a game of cricket. They say flat tracks aren't a great advertisment for cricket but those who say that need only to watch this match. Fantastic batting from both teams and in the end, it was the team that didn't wither under pressure that won the game. The wides and no balls from Morris, Rabada and Steyn made the difference in the end as Australia sealed a victory and leveled the series 1-1.
...
Maxwell and Warner's record-breaking partnership set up the win for Australia but spare a thought for the crowd, who witnessed an amazing game of T20. David Miller's misfield reminds one of the one made by Reece Topley who failed to gather the ball in the first T20I with the Proteas needing two to win. Although Faulkner might have still made it in, Miller's failure to gather the ball and that was what cost the Proteas dear.
...
19.6 Rabada to Marsh, 2 runs, good ball and that went over his head to long-on but Miller misfields and Australia are home and the series is level.
...
2 for a win, one for a tie. What a finish.
...
19.5 Rabada to Faulkner, 1 run, inside edge and Faulkner misses a ball in the slot.
...
3 needed off two balls. Faulkner on strike.
...
19.4 Rabada to Faulkner, 2 runs, that was a terrible throw from Behardien and Australia are almost home. Good delivery from Rabada, good shot by Faulkner but that wasn't good fielding.
...
5 needed off 3 balls. Pressure.
...
19.3 Rabada to Faulkner, 2 runs, driven powerfully to the fielder and the throw is at the wrong end and Australia pick up a couple.
...
Rabada is feeling the pressure here.
...
19.3 Rabada to Faulkner, WIDE, that wasn't a wide, harsh call by the umpire. That was just on the line.
...
19.2 Rabada to Faulkner, 2 runs, hit down the ground but that wasn't hit too well and Australia need 8 from 4.
...
19.2 Rabada to Faulkner, WIDE, missed his wide yorker by an inch and he will have to bowl that again.
...
This is turning into a thriller.
...
James Faulkner comes to the crease.
...
19.1 Rabada to Warner, WICKET, brilliant yorker and Warner's stumps are clattered. What a ball under pressure from the young man
...
Australia need 11 to win.Kagiso Rabada to bowl. Can he deliver?
...
18.6 Morris to Warner, 1 run, good ball but Morris misses the stumps and Morris misses the stumps.
...
18.5 Morris to Maxwell, WICKET, goes for the big slog over cover but finds the fielder and there is a twist in this tale yet.
...
18.4 Morris to Maxwell, FOUR, goes for the reverse-sweep and under pressure he delivers. That races to the boundary, well wide of the short third-man fielder.
...
18.3 Morris to Warner, 1 run, another good yorker and Warner can only get it down to long on for a single.
...
18.2 Morris to Maxwell, 1 run, nails the yorker and they only take a legbye.
...
18.1 Morris to Maxwell, no run, length ball but Maxy misses out.
...
Australia are cruising to victory can Morris halt their progress.
