End of Over No.20 South Africa 134/8 Last Over (4 runs)

9.30pm What a miraculous game of cricket. South Africa needed 18 to win off their final four overs, but they just found ways to get dismissed. For now, though, some more strategy for both teams to deal with. Who will be the three batsmen, who will be the bowler? South Africa will bat first in the Super Over. Tahir has the ball in his hand, but are South Africa bluffing? They have to bat first anyway. Let’s get ready for the Super over

Om Pashupati: “As someone would say – Excellent game. At the end, cricket is the ultimate winner !”

David Cousins: “Nail biting is a compulsive neurotic behaviour that can be triggered by any number of things. Boredom is one. How can people compare this to a world cup semi-final? This is a random fixture with absolutely nothing riding on it, that happens to be a close game.”

Mayurdan Gadhav: “Dickwella had missed the stumping chance of faf and now this in last ball! He is the man who give chance to SA.”

Nkgenyane : “Does that count as a choke?” — if they lose, for sure! Momentum with SL now though.

19.6 1 Udana to Imran Tahir It’s a Super Over! Dickwella has missed the easiest run-out of his life. Length ball on off, and Dickwella tries to cut, but the ball’s been under-edged to Dickwella. Steyn runs from the other end, and Dickwella takes aim at all three stumps, but he misses! This is a tie (for now) 1 run

Alright then. South Africa need 1 to tie, 2 to win. Sri Lanka need to concede 0 to win, 1 to tie, 2 to lose. Delay in proceedings. Will Tahir be the hero, or will Udana? Or will we see a super over? As someone loves to say, “All three results are possible”.

Long off and extra cover in the deep. Udana runs in to bowl, but then doesn’t deliver the ball! Keeping everyone waiting. Cheeky

Venu: “This match reminds my childhood when i was watching the wc semi finals between SA and Australia..”

19.5 1 Udana to Duminy slower ball, full and wide outside off, and he drags a shot to deep midwicket. Duminy wants the second run, but there’s no way he’ll be able to make it back. Throw from the deep is flat and straight, and Dickwella affects another run out! Duminy gone 1 run, OUT
JP Duminy run out 9 (33m 7b 1×4 0x6) SR: 128.57

Super over anyone? South Africa need 3 off two balls. Bowler-keeper-captain in a conference. This game has sprung into life in the last 10 minutes.

19.4 1 Udana to Steyn length ball on middle, and he muscles a pull to deep midwicket 1 run

Azweer: “An Absolute NAIL BITER…..!!!!”

JAI SRIVASTAVA: “If SA fail to score this then it would be the greatest ever choke in cricket history since they needed 18 off 4 overs”

19.3 0 Udana to Steyn play and a miss! Sri Lanka are now officially ahead. Slower ball, length on middle, and Steyn can’t connect with the pull no run

The fans are super nervous. De Kock’s biting his nails too

Pc: “Udana will win the battle ”

19.2 0 Udana to Steyn full outside off, and angling away from Steyn. Tries to muscle this over square leg, but misses. Nerves! no run

The No. 9 batsman, Steyn, is on strike. Long off comes in, no fine leg

19.1 1 Udana to Duminy slower ball on off, and guided off his hips to deep square leg. Can they take the second run? Nope 1 run

Om Pashupati: “More than runs, I think SL are 1 bowler short today. Big Question – Who will bowl the last over ?” — Looks like Udana. Long on, deep midwicket, deep backward square riding the boundary line. Duminy on strike

End of Over No.19 South Africa 130/7 Last Over (1 run)

Reckon Duminy told Rabada to go for a wild slog, especially since Duminy would’ve had the strike even if Rabada was out. South Africa need 5 off the final over

Azweer: “A repeat of WC’99 semis…!!!”

18.6 W Malinga to Rabada Malinga, you beauty! The wily ol’ fox has a bag of tricks, doesn’t he? Slower ball, full on leg, and Rabada goes for a big slog. He misses, ball hits. OUT
K Rabada b Malinga 0 (7m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Superb Malinga over, and spell. Twenty-three balls and only 11 runs from him tonight

18.5 0 Malinga to Rabada yorker, dipping outside off, and going straight into Dickwella’s gloves. South Africa need 5 off 7 no run

AWedage: “Imagine SL had 10 more runs. Just 10”

18.4 0 Malinga to Rabada full on leg, and he’s too quick to defend. Ball hits the bat’s top half, and nearly goes all the way to Malinga no run
18.3 0 Malinga to Rabada full just outside off, and the ball grips off the surface, before going past his outside edge. Through to the keeper no run
18.2 1 Malinga to Duminy full on off, and driven with the bat’s open face to deep point. Happy to take a single 1 run
18.1 0 Malinga to Duminy slower ball, full on leg, and defended towards the leg side no run

SA need 6.

End of Over No.18 South Africa 129/6 Last Over (10 runs)

17.6 1 de Silva to Duminy tapped away to point, and they want the quick run! Completed, rather comfortably 1 run
17.5 W de Silva to Phehlukwayo is that six, nope! Full just outside off, but Phehlukwayo can’t resist himself. Skips down the ground to slog over long off, but this finds the bat’s toe end OUT
AL Phehlukwayo c Udana b de Silva 4 (5m 4b 1×4 0x6) SR: 100.00
17.4 4 de Silva to Phehlukwayo crunched! Fast and full on middle, but he brings out the reverse sweep. No chance for anybody! FOUR
17.3 0 de Silva to Phehlukwayo arm ball, wide outside off and extra turn off the pitch. Surprises Phehlukwayo, who tried to cut no run
17.2 1 de Silva to Duminy half-tracker outside off, and he drags a pulled shot to deep midwicket 1 run
17.1 4 de Silva to Duminy full outside off, from around the wicket, and the attempted tap towards cover takes a big outside edge. Runs past the keeper’s left, and the fielder at short third man can’t cut it off! FOUR

South Africa need 16 off 18.

Jacques Prince: “Perfect World Cup simulation for SA this! Can they dig themselves out of the Ch…Ch.. Ch…?”

End of Over No.17 South Africa 119/5 Last Over (2 runs)

Abhijato: “These balls have been slower than the local train arriving at the Ballygunge station… Very slow, and unlike the trains they’re very effective!” — I’d have reached Golpark by then walking…

16.6 0 Malinga to Phehlukwayo length ball on off, and tapped away to point off the back foot no run

Here’s Pheh

Boy oh boy

16.5 1 Malinga to Miller length ball on leg, and worked away with the bat’s closed face to deep midwicket. But Miller’s too slow to come back, and the fielder at the deep has delivered a flat throw. Dickwella reaches out, collects well, whips the bails off, and the set Miller is gone! An applause for Miller, but he’ll be disappointed not finishing the game off 1 run, OUT
DA Miller run out 41 (37m 23b 5×4 1×6) SR: 178.26

Graham: “Three overs too late for Malinga. Should have gone hard at them earlier ”

16.4 0 Malinga to Miller full, just outside off, and seaming away after hitting the deck. Misses the attempted cover drive. This one’s through to Dickwella no run

Here’s JP

JAI SRIVASTAVA: “@Rifdhy One has come!!”

16.3 W Malinga to van der Dussen full on off, and he goes for a wild leg-side slog. Gets a leading edge and Udana at third man makes no mistake! OUT
HE van der Dussen c Udana b Malinga 34 (48m 30b 1×4 1×6) SR: 113.33

Rifdhy: “Anyone up for a jinx of 4 out of 4 balls? Malinga vs South Africa”

16.2 0 Malinga to van der Dussen length ball on middle, and jagging inwards after hitting the deck. Van der Dussen misses the leg-side flick, and the umpire turns the appeal down. Was close, but ball would’ve probably gone down elg anyway no run

further delays. Some movement behind the bowler is affecting the batsmen

16.1 1 Malinga to Miller length ball, on leg stump, and he guides this fine to the fielder at fine leg 1 run

Rifdhy: “Can Malinga produce the beauty he has produced long late?” — well, here he is

End of Over No.16 South Africa 117/3 Last Over (14 runs)

15.6 4 Dananjaya to van der Dussen edged! And Dickwella’s too slow to react. Length ball, just outside off, and the attempted tap off the back foot takes an outside edge. Races away to the third-man boundary. Goes for 14 FOUR
15.5 6 Dananjaya to van der Dussen superb! Tossed up, just outside off, and he slog sweeps over cow corner. Such sweet timing. Oof SIX
15.4 1 Dananjaya to Miller full on leg, and he offers the bat’s straight face to drive to long on 1 run
15.3 1 Dananjaya to van der Dussen tapped away off the back foot to short cover, and that’s another easy single 1 run
15.2 1 Dananjaya to Miller length ball on middle, and spinning across the left-hander. Guided to cover 1 run
15.1 1 Dananjaya to van der Dussen length ball on off, and turning away from the right-hander. Cut to deep point 1 run

Nkgenyane : “@ S.Halder, ooh yes he is. ” — And here’s Akila. To salvage something for SL
