41.3 - I Tahir to N Pradeep
OUT! That does it! South Africa have a win in their tournament opener and it's come via a dominant performance. Tossed up on the stumps, Nuwan Pradeep slog sweeps this in an attempt to clear the wide long on boundary. Didn't middle it at all as it's straight down the throat of JP Duminy, who takes a simple catch. Tahir gets his fourth of the game and SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 96 RUNS!
41.2 - I Tahir to N Pradeep
A bit of extra bounce for Imran Tahir. He pitches this on a shorter length and it turns back in, the wrong 'un, takes Pradeep by surprise and raps him on the gloves.
41.1 - I Tahir to N Pradeep
Flat, short and outside off, Nuwan off his back foot pushes it to the covers.
Ov 41: 0 0 4 1 0 4 ( 9 Runs )
40.6 - K Rabada to K Perera
FOUR! Overpitched, in an attempt to score the yorker and it's been put away. Kusal Perera backs away and drills it past mid off to end the over with a boundary.
40.5 - K Rabada to K Perera
Rabada comes steaming in and pounds it in short, Perera makes room to get some bat on it but fails to do so.
40.4 - K Rabada to N Pradeep
Similar shot, it's aerially over the covers. Just a single this time though.
40.3 - K Rabada to N Pradeep
FOUR! Don't think he really meant to hit it there but he'll take it all. Rabada hurls it full and on middle, Pradeep awkwardly just chips it over the covers. It races away to the fence, beating the chasing fielders.
40.2 - K Rabada to N Pradeep
On a shortish length again, angling down, Pradeep makes room and without even looking at the ball, wildly swings, only to miss.
40.1 - K Rabada to N Pradeep
Short of a length delivery shaping back in, on middle and leg, Pradeep makes room and looks to dab it down to third man but misses.
