WT20 Super Eights: SA vs Aus: South Africa Manage To Cross 150 Looking Impossible At One Time

This is the same pitch where India played against England. Scoring on this pitch is difficult. Australia won the toss and put South Africa to bat first. Doherty was in good form with tight and accurate bowling right from the word go. He clean bowled Levi at ducks. And then Kallis at his score of 6. SA was in trouble with top two batsmen gone just at the total score of 8 runs on board. Watson was next to strike when Amla got out at his score of 17 and the total was 33 for 3.

It was Doherty's turn again to take the wicket of Duminy at his score of 30 when he got him stumped out and was playing quite well. SA was reduced to 64 for 4 in 11th over of the game. Watson struck back by taking wicket of de Villiers when he was at 21 and SA were 86 for 5 in 15th over. Behardien and Peterson carried on further with a purpose of not losing any wickets further and also increase the run rate. At the end of 18 overs SA were 118 for 5 with an average of 6.5 runs an over.

132 for 5 was the score at the end of 19 overs. It was well made 14 runs in 19th over. Last 6 balls. First ball went for a powerful 4. Score 136 for 5. Second ball too went for a 4. Peterson playing good powerful shots.  Third ball was dot ball, no score. Fourth ball went for another 4 and score was 144 for 5. Two balls to go.

Average up to 7.32 runs per over. Second last ball and only 1 run taken as bye. Last ball to go - and goes only for a single.

Peterson is not out with 32 runs on 19 balls and 6 fours. This is his highest in T20. Behardien not out at 31 made in 27 balls with 2 fours and 1 six.

Australia to make 147 runs to win at an average of 7.3 runs per over.
