17.1 to BFW de Leede, pings off stump at 153kph! De Leede's struggle comes to an end. He backed away outside leg very early, as Nortje went full, fast and flat on off stump. De Leede ultimately had to go low and reach out for the ball, but was beaten by the extreme pace there. He missed, and Nortje hit. 123/4
Keshav Maharaj402726.75121200
12.4 to MP O'Dowd, taken at long-off! But that was actually placed well by O'Dowd. He backed away to go outside leg, as Maharaj bowled on a shortish length, hinting to turn away towards off stump. O'Dowd lofted that a bit away from his body, and with the full face of the bat, as the longer boundary came into play. Rabada moved a bit to his left, and took it high. 97/2
14.6 to TLW Cooper, Foxed by the lack of pace! Maharaj slows it down considerably, and Cooper is trapped. Cooper was ready to launch one on the leg side again, as he backed away early. Maharaj tossed it up on a fullish length, and pitched it outside leg. It took much longer to arrive though, as Cooper was well into his slog sweep. De Kock took the ballooned catch towards an imaginary short leg. 112/3
Aiden Markram201618.0030110
8.3 to SJ Myburgh, picks out deep midwicket. You sensed a big shot coming and it has arrived on cue. Except Myburgh didn't get the elevation on this slog sweep. Good catch by Rossouw at the ropes.. 58/1

Fred Klaassen402025.00153000
2.4 to Q de Kock, got him! QDK advances down the pitch but then has to reach out to slash this length ball outside off, gets a healthy edge and Edwards accepts the simple offering gleefully. Boy, I can hear the roar in Karachi, Lahore and Dhaka. The Netherlands fans in the crowd are pleased as punch too. Until now, Klaasen kept bowling full but this time he shortened his length a touch, just about got enough movement away to take the edge as QDK went hard at that. Good bowling that.. 21/1
12.3 to AK Markram, gone, excellent catch by short cover! Could this be the turning point? Markram is furious. Myburgh there went low and tumbled to his left to grab that with both hands. Good take, as he had to ensure the ball didn't fall off. Markram closed the bat face early to try and clip this good length ball on middle - which was a cutter - and ended up getting a leading edge, leaving Netherlands excited for what could be. 90/4
Paul van Meekeren3033111.0051211
5.6 to T Bavuma, bowled him! Bavuma goes too far across the stumps to try and flick that. Ended up playing all around his front pad as the ball angled back in to hit leg stump.. 39/2
Colin Ackermann301605.3361000
Roelof van der Merwe201909.5022000
Brandon Glover20934.5050010
9.3 to RR Rossouw, he's holed out to Max O'Dowd at deep square. He was literally the lone ban marshalling that side of the outfield. Glover bowls a leg-cutter on a length, it's angling in from around the stumps, so Rossouw thinks he has the angle to swing it cleanly into the leg side but because he's bowled this into the pitch, the ball bounces a tad extra, Rossouw went through and got it high on the bat and turned out to be an easy catch for the boundary rider. He literally didn't have to move an inch.. 64/3
15.2 to DA Miller, wow, this could be the catch of the tournament! Miller and South Africa will be miffed about that, not least because it comes from van der Merwe, a man who represented their country in the T20 World Cups in 2009 and 2010. He was placed at short fine leg, and turned around and started running the moment the ball took off Miller's top edge. Van der Merwe kept running and running with one eye on the ball, and as he went low and tumbled to his left, the ball stuck! Wow. Short delivery from Glover outside off, and pulled by Miller, but not timed at all. 112/5
15.4 to WD Parnell, another one gone! Netherlands supporters' voices just grow louder at the Oval. Glover is the boss. The ball was full and wide of off, as Parnell stretches out and reaches forward to try and have a feel. He goes at it with a flat bat and without any foot movement, and gets a faint edge behind to the keeper. 113/6
Logan van Beek302307.6641100
Bas de Leede302528.3341012
17.3 to H Klaasen, that should be the game! Hear the Netherlands supporters, and watch their flag flutter at the ground. Klaasen finds deep midwicket, and South Africa are pushed further back. Shortish length on middle and off from de Leede, as Klaasen made room, and rode the bounce to try and pull. But there was the longer boundary, as he found the fielder. 120/7
19.5 to KA Maharaj, slashes to deep point! Maharaj hobbling back symbolises the whole of South Africa's pain: they have surrendered from a winning position. A good length ball just outside off, and hacked forcefully after making room. But all he could do was find the fielder, even if getting it all the way beyond would have hardly made a difference. 141/8
