  • Player of the Match
    David Miller
That is all for tonight. Can Australia bounce back and level the series or will South Africa clinch yet another T20I silverware? Do join us for the second match on Sunday, 6th March at 1800 IST to find out. Until then, goodbye and take care!
Man of the Match, DAVID MILLER says he really enjoys to come in and play in situations like these. Adds that there was a lot of pressure in the beginning but slowly he rode the ship. Further states they saw a couple of weeks ago when Morris was winning games for them against England. Ends by saying that Morris has showed the potential and he had confidence in him.
Victorious South African skipper, FAF DU PLESSIS says once again they shouldn't have won this game but winning such games makes him very happy. Adds earlier they were four wickets down but the guys down there won the game for them. Continues saying they have been great particularly between 7-14 overs with the ball and it has been their strong point. Further states there are few other lessons they have to learn. particularly in the death overs. Ends by saying that Miller (on finishing) has done that in the recent times and David Miller is a big player and going into the World Cup he will be the finisher for them.
Australian captain, STEVEN SMITH says that they looked like they would get more than what was the final total. Adds Finch added a bit of pressure in the starting particularly in Duminy's over but after that they lost wickets in clumps. Continues saying their bowling and fielding was good tonight. Also says that the outfield was a bit wet but the pitch remained the same. Ends by saying that David Miller played a gem of an innings and he has done that for South Africa quite a few times.
The Aussie bowling attack did a good job overall tonight. They went after the Protea batsmen from the first ball and picked up vital wickets quickly. If it weren't for Miller's heroics, they would have won this game for their team. Nathan Coulter-Nile was the pick of the bowlers, picking up 3/29. He was supported well by his fellow bowlers except Tye who had another bad outing. The Aussies were excellent in the field as well but it just wasn't their night. Stay tuned for the presentation...
After du Plessis' departure, things were looking quite bleak. But then in came David Miller. He got off to a nervous start, but after David Wiese's dismissal, took on the mantle and went all guns blazing. He scored his Maiden T20I fifty and saw his team over the finish line.
What a victory for South Africa! They've taken a 1-0 lead in this series and have done so in style. David Miller, the local lad is the hero tonight. South Africa got off to the worst possible start. They lost a couple of early wickets and seemed to be in trouble before the skipper took charge of things. He played a strong and sensible knock even though wickets were falling around him.

Replays show that Wiese had managed to get his bat into the crease in time. He is safe.

                      OUT! Another one bites the dust! Full toss wide outside off, Rossouw smashes it on the off side. It's straight to Khawaja at point who takes a good catch getting down fast. That was a poor delivery to get out to. Should have dispatched that.

                                  Around off, the ball takes the outside edge as Duminy looks to poke at that. A single is taken.

                                    Nathan Coulter-Nile To Faf du Plessis
                                    Back of a length on middle and leg, du Plessis pulls this away well through square leg. The ball looks certain to cross the fence but Tye who is out in the deep makes a good diving effort to stop that. Two runs are taken.
                                    JP DUMINY is the next batsman in.

                                    Nathan Coulter-Nile To Quinton de Kock OUT!
                                    OUT! DE KOCK IS GONE! Full on middle and off, de Kock looks to flick it on the leg side as the ball takes a thick leading edge. It skies right up as Coulter-Nile comes under in and takes a good catch. South Africa are two down!

                                    FOUR! Back of a length delivery around off, du Plessis steps across and superbly pulls it over the square leg region to send it across the fine leg fence for a boundary.

                                    Length ball around off, du Plessis misses the line of the delivery as he tries to hit that away.

                                    Fuller length around off, du Plessis looks to hit it through the off side but the ball takes the inside edge. It thuds onto the pads and goes towards fine leg as they take a couple of runs.

                                      FOUR! Thumped! Fuller outside off, de Kock gets down on one knee and launches it high over the covers to send it across the ropes for a boundary.

                                      The South African's are riding their luck here! Length delivery just outside off, de Kock tries to hit that away on the leg side but the ball takes a thick top edge. It skies over the keeper's head towards the third man boundary as they take two runs.

                                      JOHN HASTINGS will share the new ball.

The ball lofts towards Mitchell Marsh at short mid-wicket who makes a good diving effort to his right but is unable to get to the ball. A couple of runs are taken.
                                        The skipper FAF DU PLESSIS is next in to bat.

                                        OUT! Just the start they needed! Length delivery outside off, swinging away, de Villiers hangs his bat out to that. The ball takes the outside edge and it's into Nevill's gloves. That's a big wicket for the Aussies, they've gotten rid of the South African talisman!
                                        We are back for the run chase. Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers will open the South African innings. Nathan Coulter-Nile will lead the Aussie bowling charge. Here we go, folks...
