Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

5.45pm It’s Gnasher back with you to close things out for today. Hopefully we’ll hear from the two captains. If you want some more live cricket, the Bangladesh-Zimbabwe Test is currently going on

Aaron Finch “Disappointed, didn’t play anywhere near our potential. South Africa put us on the back foot early. You never just put it to bed, it’s an opportunity to learn and improve. We’ve been training very well. We’ll review the game, keep training and look forward to Adelaide. We were a bit careless at times, attention to detail. We were off the mark slightly. Everything has to go right to defend a small total. It was going around quite a bit early on, full credit to SA they played nicely.”

Faf du Plessis “Yeah, very good. Exceptional with the ball and in the field. A very good day in the office. Brilliant to have Dale back. It’s good to have that x-factor in your bowling attack. I like to take the positive option. Sometimes it was tricky out there, the odd one bouncing, but they batted nicely. Dave’s run out was exceptional. Nice to see the fielding click. I’d have liked us to be a little more clinical, maybe eight, nine wickets but we’ll take the win.”

The Man of the Match is Dale Steyn “Nice to finish a game without breaking down in Australia. It was a good wicket to bowl on. We’ve got some great quicks and bowled exceptionally well. The plan is to hit hard lengths, not give them too much width. I’ll take any wickets I can take in one-day cricket. International cricket is a whole other beast, when you step up it’s a whole other thing.”

That’s just about wraps things up for today. A comprehensive start for South Africa and a host of questions remain for Australia. We’ll be back for the second match in Adelaide on Friday but until then it’s goodbye from Andrew and Alex and thanks for joining us.

5.37pm That was clinical from South Africa. They take a 1-0 lead in the three match series. They razed the Australian top order via a stunning spell from Dale Steyn and then great follow up work from Ngidi, Rabada and Phehlukwayo. Then de Kock, Hendricks and Markram made pretty light work of the chase. Marcus Stoinis nabbed three wickets but there wasn’t much else to get excited about for Australia.
