    13.1 Mitchell Starc to Dwaine Pretorius, out, OUT! LBW! Three reds and number 7 is there in the wickets’ column for South Africa. Mitchell Marsh, much like Angelo Mathews of Sri Lanka, bowls once in a blue moon. And like the moon seen in the month of Ramadan, both strike once in a while too. 26th January 2020 might be that day. Because Angelo Mathews struck in the SL-WI ODI and Mr. Marsh, after not bowling throughout the series, has struck on his very first ball. Full and straight, Pretorius looks to swing across the line but misses and is hit on the pads. Marsh appeals, the umpire thinks for a while and then raises his finger. Pretorius goes for the review perhaps because he hit it or probably more so because he is the last recognized batsman. Nothing on the Ultra Edge and he is already on his bike. Here comes Ball Tracker. Crashing into off stump. So 87 strikes. Not once, not twice. But not against Australia. For them.

  • 12:30 AM IST

    Pretorius has been adjudged LBW! Did he nick it? He has taken the review. Does not look like he hit it. Nothing on the Ultra Edge. Pretorius is already walking off. Because Ball Tracker is showing it to be hitting the off stump.

  • 12:27 AM IST

    12.5 Pat Cummins to David Miller, out, OUT! CAUGHT! That might be the final nail in the coffin for South Africa. Full delivery on off, Miller lofts it uppishly towards covers where Finch comes forward and takes a good catch. The hosts need 107 runs in 43 balls to win the match.
