When the South African team batsmen were standing on the pitch it was looking like they are unable to judge the bounce and turn after 10th over. The visitor team Australian batsmen also smashed all South African bowlers till 10th over. After that their RR started decreasing slowly and in the end, even DA Warner was unable to score runs easily. It was the pitch and old ball roll in that match.
