Anrich Nortje to Mitchell Starc. Full toss, to leg on the front foot driving, missed to point for 1 run, fielded by van Biljon. South Africa sneak through to win by 12 runs! An exquisite last five overs from their bowlers have given them the victory. Australia will be wondering how they have managed to lose that. They were cruising. The Proteas kept picking up wickets, and the pressure was piled onto the chasing team. Brilliant entertainment, wonderful atmosphere, and it is now set up for a thrilling decider in a few days time. The teams head to Cape Town with the series at 1-1.

OUT! Bowled. Anrich Nortje to Ashton Agar. Off cutter back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, missed to. Nortje gets in on the act! The crowd goes wild again! An ugly swipe across the line, the ball doesn't get up that much, and it scoots through to peg back the off stumps. South Africa should close it out from here.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Kagiso Rabada to Matthew Wade. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, leading edge back to bowler, by Rabada. Australia are bottling this! Wade doesn't last too long. He closes the bat face too early, the ball holds in the surface, and it spoons back to Rabada off the edge. Simple return catch. The crowd go bananas!

OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Mitchell Marsh. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by du Plessis, by Miller. Sensational bit of work in the deep by du Plessis and Miller. It was in the slot for a big one from Marsh, but the connection is poor. Faf pouches it, was going to fall over the rope, so pops it off to Miller, who was ready and waiting. Game on!

OUT! Bowled. Lungi Ngidi to Alex Carey. Length ball, down leg side backing away cutting, missed to. Carey gives himself room outside leg, he exposes all three stumps, and the ball skids through to send the leg pole cartwheeling. Accurate bowling, poor decision making from Carey.

It's touch and go to whether du Plessis can complete the catch on the boundary edge, though. He gobbles it up, but the foot was in contact with the rope at the same time. Those kind of things need to go in the way of the hosts if they are to defend this!

Mitchell Starc to Pite van Biljon. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep extra cover for 2 runs, run save by Smith, fielded by Agar. Almost the perfect finish for South Africa. Van Biljon cracks it over extra cover, Smith takes the catch but is falling over the rope, so lobs it back into play.That feels a little short from the hosts. Quinton de Kock got things off to a rapid start, and continued nicely through the middle as others struggled around him. He made an excellent 70 of 47 balls. The only other significant contribution was from Rassie van der Dussen with his breezy 37. Australia were fantastic with the ball again. Kane Richardson was the pick of the bowlers today. The visitors will be the favourites to chase this down, but it can still go either way.

Horror fielding in the deep. Whipped away powerfully behind square, but straight to the man. Richardson makes a meal of it. He lets it through the legs, and the ball hits the rope.

OUT! Caught. Kane Richardson to Rassie van der Dussen. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Agar. Super bowling from Richardson. He's had a good afternoon with the ball. He finishes with a slower ball bouncer, and Rassie cannot generate enough power on it. High off the bat, and swallowed up in the deep.

OUT! Caught. Adam Zampa to Quinton de Kock. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Starc. Brave bowling from Zampa, and it pays off. He gets the big fish. Tossed up high to invite the aggressive shot, and de Kock is slightly early on it. Off the bottom end of the bat, and it lobs down to long off for a simple catch. That ends a marvellous innings.

OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Faf du Plessis. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by Richardson. Du Plessis departs. The change back to Cummins has worked. He rolls his fingers across the ball, Faf doesn't pick it, and that causes the miscue. Sliced out to the fielder sweeping on the offside boundary. Australia are fighting back well.

Start of South Africa Innings. Welcome the second T20I between South Africa and Australia. The hosts have won the toss in Port Elizabeth and elected to bat first. The Aussies currently lead 1-0 after the hammering they dealt to the Proteas on Friday evening. The huge margin of victory really showed the gulf between the two teams in this format at the moment. The home side really need to produce a much better performance to even stand a chance of competing. The neutrals will definitely want that to happen so there is a closer contest. Australia can take an unassailable lead in the series with a win today, but South Africa can level things up and take it to a decider. Hopefully it is going to be a thriller.

OUT! Bowled. Lungi Ngidi to Aaron Finch. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, bottom edge to. Nips back, and a feather of an inside edge deflects back into the stumps! The drop doesn't cost too much in the end. Ngidi gets his line and length right, extracts some movement, and Finch cannot keep it out. The home side needed that!

A regulation catch behind the wicket for de Kock, and it goes straight through the hands. Looked far too casual trying to take that. Lazy keeping, and it costs his team four as well! South Africa have started poorly!
