92.4 - J Hazlewood to Q D Kock
OUT! The decision stays it the favour of the Aussies and that's the match in the visitors' favour. Hazlewood lands it on a fuller length from around the wicket. De Kock goes for the slog over the leg side but misses it completely as it hits him on his pads. Instant leg before appeal goes up, the umpire signals out and it looks gone too, but for the sake of it, given it's the last wicket, de Kock reviews. The replays show three reds and AUSTRALIA WIN BY 118 RUNS AND GO 1-0 UP IN THE SERIES! An emphatic victory for them.
92.3 - J Hazlewood to M Morkel
Morkel opens his account. He opens the face of the bat and guides it towards the vacant third man area to pick up three runs.
92.2 - J Hazlewood to M Morkel
Lucky to not get an edge on that one. Hazlewood bowls a length ball just outside off, Morkel tries to heave it over mid off but misses it completely.
92.1 - J Hazlewood to Q D Kock
Played towards the deep point fielder for a single. Morkel to face the remaining five deliveries. Will he survive?
Ov 92: 0 0 1 0 0 0 ( 1 Run )
91.6 - M Starc to M Morkel
Played towards the fine leg area. Single was on offer but de Kock decides against it as he wants to keep the strike for the next over.
91.5 - M Starc to M Morkel
Tailing in towards the batsman but way too full and outside off. Morkel could leave such deliveries all day long.
91.4 - M Starc to M Morkel
Morkel leaves a full delivery outside off.
91.3 - M Starc to Q D Kock
First runs of the day. Quinton drives it to covers and calls his partner immediately for a couple. But to his dismay, he has timed it too well and could only pick up a run from it.
91.2 - M Starc to Q D Kock
Quinton de Kock plays it to mid-wicket for yet another dot ball.
91.1 - M Starc to Q D Kock
Chipped away towards deep mid-wicket but decides not to take any run on this delivery. He does not want Morkel to face Starc as he knows how deadly he is against the tailenders.
