• Play of the Day

    Josh Hazlewood’s superb reversing delivery which took out AB de Villiers’ middle stump is our Play of the¬†Day.

    It was sweet revenge for the seamer, as De Villiers had earlier taken him for 14 runs in his seventh over with two fours and a six. Hazlewood had already removed Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla, but at 206-3, the Proteas were still on track to chase down the Aussies’ total of 288-6.

    Then Hazlewood got one to reverse swing through the gate as De Villiers went for a big shot, sending him home with just 39 runs in his bag and the Proteas on 210-4 after 38 overs. It was the turning point, for the rest of the batting line-up were not up to the fight.
