David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen consolidate for the Proteas after the short wickets
The returning left-arm spinner has had the South African batters on toast for many of the match, and he was in no temper to step again within the contest between bat and ball. The pitch will not be the best to bat on as it’s providing prodigious flip for the spinner together with some seam motion for the pacers.
South Africa will hope that the talismanic determine of David Miller might take them to a good whole after the completion of their 40 overs. Quinton de Kock’s dismissal for a well-made 48 might nicely show to be the turning level within the innings. However the guests have gotten sufficient firepower of their ranks to defend something round 200-220 on a difficult floor.
