SA vs Aus

Australia had reason to be upset over two judgments that went against them, as bad as they were. Despite the fact that it appeared to the unaided eye that the ball was about to pass Steven Smith’s leg stump, a field judgement was reversed on DRS and Steven Smith was ruled out LBW.

While, the choice to send Marcus Stoinis off for a catch down the leg side was far more doubtful. When Stoinis’ bottom hand made contact with the ball, it was not with the top hand as suggested by television umpire Richard Kettleborough and did not appear to be from the front-on perspective. The bowler that benefited from both was Kagiso Rabada, who finished with fantastic stats of 3 for 33.

With 9.1 innings remaining, the winning moment came, when Tabraiz Shamsi strucks two wickets in the winning over. However, the contest was actually over a long time ago.

South Africa’s net runrate shoots up sky-high after defeating Australia.
