Australia vs South Africa, T20 World Cup, Latest Updates: Anrich Nortje's last over. If he can take a wicket here, it would be massive for South Africa. Australia need 18 runs in 12 balls. Single to begin. Oh, it was drilled straight back at Nortje by Stoinis, but the South African can't hang on to the ball, there was too much power in that shot. Stoinis runs two.
