All|Overs 1-50
4

to Hales, FOUR, the aggression. Another real sitter up, the short one just not gaining the angle of elevation. Just the arm freeing Hales wants. Stands up, on the bounce and doesn't bother keeping his pull in front of square down

6

to Roy, SIX, a crowd catch. Anticipates the quicker delivery, sits down, walks inside and unleashes a full-blooded slog sweep. Swivels in motion to take it behind square

4

to Roy, leg byes, FOUR, a wasted line. On the thighs off a back of a length. Flies on a Natraj pose, off the thigh pad in a right angle in the air as he turns on his heel. Past a diving keeper

6

to Roy, SIX, talk about returning to form. Stamps this away in style. Walks down, takes it head on and powers it, tennis forehand-like. Cow corner takes the brunt

4

to Roy, FOUR, another half tracker. Another fence hit. Not quite intended though. Looks away, covers his face withe desperate bat coming up and in the way. Just about manages a thick portion of the wood to take it past the keeper

4

to Roy, FOUR, four fence hitters in a row. And the best of the lot. Gets a slower sucker ball on a good length. Too straight though. Waits on it and whips it away through mid-wicket. In case you've forgotten..this is the powerplay. Who'd stop these

4

to Roy, FOUR, make it five. 22 off the over with a ball to go. Pure control, equal timing. Nimble feet in going inside-out. Right to the pitch of the delivery and a loft over the covers

W

to Roy, out Lbw!! The greed comes in. Why o why? After an over of stellar conventional hits, Roy decides to reverse. Without bothering to have a look at the new bowler. With his pads entrenched right in front of the sticks and the bat on a standing reverse sweep. Misses the line but the ball hitting the front pad wasn't going to miss. Plumb. Roy lbw b 28(14) [4s-3 6s-2]

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, running. With a slash. Just the hint of width, and all timing offered. Rolls his wrists on the ball beside his eyeline in half-slapping, half-guiding it behind point

6

to Hales, SIX, gets this one to pitch. And watches it on a pack away. Sinks down, gets underneath the bounce and takes on the flight that there is to slog. Over mid-wicket she goes

6

to Bairstow, SIX, the first looper. The obvious smack. A classical slog this, nothing more. And imparts all the timing on this one to take it all the way too. A swipe across the line and into cow corner

6

to Bairstow, SIX, he's toying around. 's supposed to be a mystery. Bairstow has the key though. Keeps the bat horizontal, doesn't even bother reading the turn as he drills it over the bowler. And all the way

4

to Hales, FOUR, the customary boundary from the over. The fielders have given up too. Do not bother chasing. Too wide, too short and cut away gleefully

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, and now the cheek. He's bored being conventional, so he reverses. And nails the sweep. What's worse? The man sweeping overruns and misfields too. They've switched off here, have the Proteas

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, the hook now. Showing his entire array here is Bairstow. Spots the bumper, lines up, gets inside the line and a disdainful cross batted heave comes out in taking it past the keeper

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, a dive at extra cover, everything right about it. Such has been the day for South Africa that the parry rolls away into the fence. Rocks back, rubs it into the short half tracker as he hacks it through sweeper

4

to Hales, FOUR, a drop. And a roll away into the ropes. Can it really get worse? A tonk this from Hales, going high, and higher. Behardien at long-on, comes in, and then back-pedals. Gets the reverse cup up as well. Bursts through the fingers and onto his face before he recovers to find it into the fence

6

to Hales, SIX, and it gets bigger. Several rows into the stands this time. FB only need to catch the chuck back from the crowd this time. Clears the front leg, sinks and slogs it away, to its doom

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, the drill. The electric drill. And it gets him to his second half-ton. All the loop to give him all the time in moving away and slices it hard. The covers once again

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, the upper cut was remaining. Not any more. Gets the short one on the body, one that follows him through as he arches back. But sticks the bat up in time to ramp it through the cordon. Scores level

W

to Smuts, out Bowled!! Gone first ball. David hasn't played a single game in Champions Trophy. Here he is picking a wicket off his first ball, and how did he get there? Pitches a nip-backer around good length and gets good shape into the right-hander, Smuts plays with leaden feet and ekes a skimmer of an inside edge onto his stumps. Excellent seam presentation from David . And with that, JJ Smuts becomes the first South African to be dismissed first ball in a T20I. Smuts b 0(1)

W

Wood to Hendricks, out Caught by Willey!! First ball wicket again. Oh, South Africa. Banged in on back of a length, 89pmh, Hendricks pulls flat-footed, rolls his wrists too. But he picks out the only man in front of square on the on-side. It flies straight to Willey at mid-wicket who had to time his jump to perfection to nestle it safely. England on top. Hendricks c Willey b Wood 3(2)

4

Wood to de Villiers, FOUR, that's as good a shot you will ever see from AB. Tendulkar-esque. Rises on his tippy toes, gets on top of the ball and punches it past backward point. All timing

4

Wood to de Villiers, FOUR, AB and his punches! This one's more of a driving punch. He stands deep inside the crease, uses the width on offer and smashes it between mid-off and extra cover

6

to Miller, SIX, no first ball wicket anymore. Miller dances down the pitch and lifts David right out of the meat of the bat into the long-off stands, just a mere extension of the arms

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, picks the bones out of it. Waits for the slower delivery and dispatches it with utter disdain. Just clubs it over the infield, one bounce and over the ropes

W

Wood to Miller, out Caught by Buttler!! Too pacy, Wood is a skiddy customer mind you. He razors one into the left-hander and does him for pace and length. It was pitched in that in-between length area where most batsmen tend to poke off the back foot. Miller though hops and feathers an inside edge through to the keeper. Miller c Buttler b Wood 9(7) [6s-1]

4

to Behardien, FOUR, edged and four, but was it deliberate? Don't think so. With only one slip in place, Behardien tries to steer one past him, didn't get all of it, but 's pace took care of the rest

4

Crane to Behardien, FOUR, goes hard again, the ball spun enough to kiss the edge and race past the keeper

4

Crane to de Villiers, FOUR, full toss, AB sees it all the way through and smites it in the gap between long-on and deep mid-wicket

4

to Behardien, FOUR, Mason Crane misjudges one at deep mid-wicket. A top-edge pull, Crane set himself, but was too far inside the line and hence couldn't get underneath it. It sneaks through his fingertips before skimming past the boundary line

6

Wood to Behardien, SIX, short, pacy, leg-side and FB has nailed it. Swivels and pulls the life out of the delivery, way back into the stands over square leg

6

to de Villiers, SIX, across the stumps, on one knee and bam he goes over fine leg. That's AB for you. Don't try that at home. A shot that perhaps only this man can execute. Brings up his fifty in style

4

Wood to Behardien, FOUR, short ball, sits up on middle, FB murders the pull through mid-wicket and brings up his fifty

6

Wood to Behardien, SIX, right into his swinging arc, follows the batsman and bowls a bit leg-sidish, Fb lets the ball come in and lofts it straight down the ground. All the way for a maximum

OT

to Behardien, 1 run, full toss outside off, FB drives along the ground to deep cover to bring up the 100-run stand

6

to de Villiers, SIX, whack! Have seen so many of these over the years from AB. Way across his off-stump, crouches, takes the ball on the full and slog-sweeps it 20 rows back over fine leg
