    I wonder if Franklin did that on purpose, the short, cramped pie. It was too much for Steyn to resist so he couldn't just knock a single. It being a dot ball instead of a single is huge. Excellent thinking from Franklin if so.

    It's very McCullum and a great way for him to bow out.

    Haha, Franklin gets a wicket with a half track pie. 3 off 1, money on a tie?

    Nine down. There's nothing quite like it all coming down to the most incompetent player in the side to get the job done.

    Great game.

    Shame the umpires couldn't dock a ball of the SA 49th over the even up the mistake.
