OUT! Bowled. Adam Zampa to Kagiso Rabada. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the back foot pulling, missed to. That's that. Flatter delivery from Zampa, not much bounce after pitching, and the ball finds its way through to peg back the middle stump.That was a very one-sided contest. Ashton Agar will take all the headlines. He got a little cameo with the bat, and picked up a brilliant five wicket haul, including a hattrick. South Africa were dismal in all departments this evening. Too many extras with the ball, sloppy in the field, and simply atrocious with the bat. A lot to think about for them. Australia were ruthless. Contributions throughout their whole team, and they were far too good tonight.The visitors go 1-0 up in the three match series. The second game is on Sunday afternoon, so join us again for that.

OUT! Caught. Ashton Agar to Lungi Ngidi. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Warner. Five for Agar! What an evening he is having. He tempts the tailender into the big shot, and Ngidi obliges. Hit pretty nicely, but he doesn't get enough height on it to clear the long on fence. Warner is placed perfectly, and he swallows up the chance.

SIX! Kane Richardson to Kagiso Rabada. Short, down leg side on the back foot hooking, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs. Rabada has got some batting talent. He latches onto this short ball, and deposits this miles over the rope for six. Clean hitting.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Ashton Agar. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. A lot of runs have gone down there for Australia in this innings. They have had a fair bit of luck. Agar swings hard, it comes off the top edge, and spoons over the keeper for four.That is a very competitive total on the board from the visitors. Aaron Finch and Steve Smith got things off to a blistering start, before South Africa restricted the visitors in the second half of the innings. A few lusty blows at the back end has pushed the score up to 196, which will be difficult to chase down.

Kagiso Rabada to Ashton Agar. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to third man for 2 runs, dropped catch by Shamsi. Oh dear! Huge mix up between Shamsi and de Kock. It should've been a simple take, but they both let it go for each other. The leg spinner was in the better position to take it, but ends up handing Australia a couple of bonus runs.
19.2
6
SIX! Kagiso Rabada to Ashton Agar. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Even better from Agar. Gets it right in the slot, and dispatches the ball back over the bowler's head for six.
19.1
4
FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Ashton Agar. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. That's a corker of a stroke. Plenty of bottom hand in this, as he thunders a drive between mid off and extra cover.

OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Mitchell Marsh. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Steyn. Australia are faltering at the back end here. The Saffers are using a lot of cutters to restrict the batsmen. The plan is working well. Marsh completely mis-hits this off the toe end, and Steyn just manages to cling on running in from the deep.

OUT! Caught. Andile Phehlukwayo to Alex Carey. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by du Plessis. Phehlukwayo has deserved that. A decent spell from him today. Good change of pace again, Carey is through his shot far too early, and he total miscues it. Off the bottom end of the bat, it goes extremely high down to Faf at long off, but he pouches with no issues.

APPEAL! Tabraiz Shamsi to Alex Carey. Left-Arm Leg Spin back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught. De Kock thinks there's a nick, but the umpire shakes his head. Great decision from the official. South Africa use their review, but the replays show that there was nothing as it passed the bat.

Agonisingly close for South Africa! Carey nails this sweep over the legside, but doesn't get a lot of elevation on it. Struck hard and flat towards van der Dussen at deep mid wicket, but he can only fingertip it over the rope.

Not sure if this was luck or skill from the South African spinner, but either way, Smith has to go. Dragged down the legside, Smith came charging down the wicket, but couldn't reach the ball. It spun a long way down, was a huge wide, but that doesn't matter. Stumped by a distance.

Easily taken in the deep. Huge wicket for the home side to pick up!

Start of Australia Innings. Welcome the first T20I of this three match series between South Africa and Australia. The hosts have won the toss at the New Wanderers Stadium and elected to bowl first. It is nearly two years on since the ball tampering debacle, and it is the first occasion that David Warner and Steve Smith will return to play cricket in this part of the world, so expect a feisty atmosphere. This is purely a white-ball tour as both teams will be preparing towards the T20 World Cup later this year. Whatever the result, this series is going to be a great spectacle.

OUT! Bowled. Adam Zampa to Kagiso Rabada. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the back foot pulling, missed to. That's that. Flatter delivery from Zampa, not much bounce after pitching, and the ball finds its way through to peg back the middle stump.That was a very one-sided contest. Ashton Agar will take all the headlines. He got a little cameo with the bat, and picked up a brilliant five wicket haul, including a hattrick. South Africa were dismal in all departments this evening. Too many extras with the ball, sloppy in the field, and simply atrocious with the bat. A lot to think about for them. Australia were ruthless. Contributions throughout their whole team, and they were far too good tonight.The visitors go 1-0 up in the three match series.

OUT! L.B.W. Ashton Agar to Andile Phehlukwayo. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Two in two for Ashton Agar! South Africa are crumbling towards defeat. Phehlukwayo tries to whip it through the legside, but doesn't play straight enough. Beaten on the inside edge, and it thumps into the pad right in front. The only question was whether it pitched in line, and the umpire thought it had. The review was used, but all three reds came up on HawkEye.

OUT! Caught. Ashton Agar to Faf du Plessis. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by Richardson. This is turning into an absolute drubbing. South Africa lose du Plessis now. He tries the positive option, going inside-out over the offside, but it goes a lot squarer than he intended. Wanted it over extra cover, but it flew straight into the hands of the sweeper.

OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to JJ Smuts. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Zampa. It's looking like a tall order for the Proteas now. Cummins picks up his second, and South Africa are now three down. Smuts attempts to take on the short ball, but some extra bounce off the surface causes his downfall. Got more height than distance, and the ball looped down to fine leg, where Zampa took an excellent tumbling grab.

Australia have their second, and they are massively on top already. Rassie attempts to go over the offside, but the ball flies off a thick outside edge. It went extremely high down to third man, but Starc composed himself, and took the catch nicely.

Big in-ducker from Starc back into the right hander now, and du Plessis is beaten on the inside edge. Massive shout for leg before, but the ball struck high on the leg, and was clearly going over the top.

Angled in, hooping away from the left hander, and it squares up de Kock. He tries to flip it to the legside, but the ball swings past the edge to flatten the middle stump. Not much you can do about that. Stunning bowling.
