Anrich Nortje to Mitchell Starc. Full toss, to leg on the front foot driving, missed to point for 1 run, fielded by van Biljon. South Africa sneak through to win by 12 runs! An exquisite last five overs from their bowlers have given them the victory. Australia will be wondering how they have managed to lose that. They were cruising. The Proteas kept picking up wickets, and the pressure was piled onto the chasing team. Brilliant entertainment, wonderful atmosphere, and it is now set up for a thrilling decider in a few days time. The teams head to Cape Town with the series at 1-1.

OUT! Bowled. Anrich Nortje to Ashton Agar. Off cutter back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, missed to. Nortje gets in on the act! The crowd goes wild again! An ugly swipe across the line, the ball doesn't get up that much, and it scoots through to peg back the off stumps. South Africa should close it out from here.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Kagiso Rabada to Matthew Wade. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, leading edge back to bowler, by Rabada. Australia are bottling this! Wade doesn't last too long. He closes the bat face too early, the ball holds in the surface, and it spoons back to Rabada off the edge. Simple return catch. The crowd go bananas!

OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Mitchell Marsh. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by du Plessis, by Miller. Sensational bit of work in the deep by du Plessis and Miller. It was in the slot for a big one from Marsh, but the connection is poor. Faf pouches it, was going to fall over the rope, so pops it off to Miller, who was ready and waiting. Game on!

OUT! Bowled. Lungi Ngidi to Alex Carey. Length ball, down leg side backing away cutting, missed to. Carey gives himself room outside leg, he exposes all three stumps, and the ball skids through to send the leg pole cartwheeling. Accurate bowling, poor decision making from Carey.

SIX! Lungi Ngidi to Alex Carey. Off cutter length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Carey clubs this down the ground nicely. It's touch and go to whether du Plessis can complete the catch on the boundary edge, though. He gobbles it up, but the foot was in contact with the rope at the same time. Those kind of things need to go in the way of the hosts if they are to defend this!
