Live Commentary

Over 74. no runs. Bowler: Dean Elgar. Australia: 216/10(rr 2.92)
73.4
OUT! L.B.W. Elgar to Lyon. Stock ball back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to short extra cover. Given out and there are no reviews left, replays show he got an edge on that but it does not matter, Dean Elgar has done it for his side but it was the reverse swing of Dale Steyn that turned the match on its head. South Africa batted on earlier in the day to build their lead given to them by first innings centurions, de Villiers and Duminy. Amla went through to yet another hundred before the declaration came half an hour before Lunch. A four day finish looked a long way off with Australia cruising along at 126-0 before Duminy ousted Warner and the ball started to reverse. The incoming batsmen had no answer and only Ryan Harries lasted any length of time trying to support Chris Rogers at the other end. He made a wonderful century but then made a critical error, going for a quick single to keep Siddle away from the pace bowlers. A decision that became even more costly as the umpires deemed the light too poor to carry on with the quicks. All that means that the Series is tied going into the third and final match.
73.3
Elgar to Lyon. Quicker ball half volley, outside off stump no foot movement, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Villiers.

OUT! Run Out (Sub). Duminy to Rogers. Off break short, off stump on the back foot pushing, to mid off, fielded by de Villiers. What an impact from the sub fielder.

68.6
OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Steyn to Harris. In-swinging length ball, middle stump no foot movement pushing, hit pad to slips, fielded by du Plessis. Steyn gets the breakthrough in the first extra over. Big inswinger catches the pads and after a delay the finger goes up. Harris reviews but the ball is just clipping and both sides are out of reviews. With the weather forecast poor for tomorrow South Africa will be desperate for two wickets in these remaining seven overs.
