View dismissal RG Sharma run out (de Villiers) 0 13 6 0 0 0.00
2.5 Steyn to Dhawan, Oh, my. That's an unfortunate way to go. Dhawan comes on the front foot to push into the covers, where Duminy makes a super diving stop, and the ball rolls to AB at mid-off. Rohit had sprinted out of his crease, and was quite a distance down it when he realised the ball hadn't gone past the fielder. Stumbled as he turned. AB hits the stumps direct, and Rohit is well short, even while diving, and the bat's slipped out of his hand as well. 9/1
View dismissal S Dhawan c Amla b Parnell 137 199 146 16 2 93.83
43.4 83.4 mph, got him. That was banged in short, and he had to fetch the pull from over his left shoulder. Hit high on the bat and looped up and down into the hands of the fielder at long leg. End of a superb innings from Dhawan, he's really turned his form around here. 261/3
View dismissal V Kohli c du Plessis b Imran Tahir 46 106 60 3 0 76.66
27.1 55.7 mph, Tahir strikes with a long-hop! Kohli rocks back to pull, hits it straight to Faf at short midwicket, at chest height. He was sent spinning by the power of the shot, but clung on safely enough 136/2
View dismissal AM Rahane lbw b Steyn 79 90 60 7 3 131.66
45.6 89.5 mph, got him. Walked across and looked to club it away to the leg side. It was a touch too full, maybe, and it came in off the seam and hit him on the back thigh. Given immediately, and Rahane didn't review 278/5
View dismissal SK Raina c sub (RR Rossouw) b Morkel 6 6 5 1 0 120.00
44.5 79.7 mph, and now he takes one. Far simpler catch. Morkel banged it in again and Raina cleared his front leg and pulled it in the air once more, this time it's straight at the fielder, at chest height 269/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †de Kock b Morkel 18 22 11 3 0 163.63
48.5 81.8 mph, got him! Morkel bangs it in halfway and Dhoni shuffles across to hook, only manages a top-edge through to the keeper 302/7
View dismissal RA Jadeja run out (de Villiers) 2 4 4 0 0 50.00
47.2 from Parnell, Direct hit. Boom. Full and wide again and this time he drives to mid-off and sets off for the single, AB hits the stumps at the bowler's end and Jadeja wasn't even close to making it 284/6

  South Africa innings (target: 308 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HM Amla c Mohammed Shami b MM Sharma 22 50 28 2 0 78.57
10.2 84.3 mph, gone! The short ball's done the trick. Again it was outside off, not the easiest line to pull from. Amla top-edged it and Shami took it brilliantly at long leg, over his head with both hands, moving backwards but ensuring he stopped well short of the rope 40/2
View dismissal Q de Kock c Kohli b Mohammed Shami 7 15 15 1 0 46.66
3.3 86.7 mph, gone! That's the first time de Kock hasn't scored a century against India. It's a bit fuller but nowhere near full enough to drive. Goes hard at it and scoops a low catch to Kohli, tumbling forward from mid-off 12/1
View dismissal F du Plessis c Dhawan b MM Sharma 55 98 71 5 0 77.46
28.1 82.5 mph, got him! Came down the track and looked to flat-bat it down the ground. Wasn't the right ball for it, it was shorter than ideal, and it hit high on his bat and popped straight into mid-off's hands 133/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers* run out (MM Sharma/†Dhoni) 30 47 38 3 0 78.94
22.5 from Jadeja, driven to sweeper cover and India are convinced there's a run-out. Good throw in from Mohit, right next to the stumps, and Dhoni did the rest even as AB stretched to complete the second. They go up to the third umpire, and he's a good couple of inches short when the bails light up. Massive moment for India 108/3
View dismissal DA Miller run out (Yadav/†Dhoni) 22 45 23 2 0 95.65
33.4 from Ashwin, another run-out! Sweeps, finds Umesh at deep square leg, and they try to take on his arm again. Excellent throw, and Dhoni doesn't have too much work to do - in fact, he's flicked it into the stumps. They go to the third umpire, and the bails light up with the sliding Miller's bat in the air. 153/6
View dismissal JP Duminy c Raina b Ashwin 6 16 15 0 0 40.00
31.3 58.4 mph, and that is that for JP. Goes for the reverse sweep, and it goes with the angle again, hits his glove, and pops up to present the slip fielder an absolute dolly 147/5
WD Parnell not out 17 41 28 1 0 60.71
View dismissal VD Philander lbw b Ashwin 0 4 2 0 0 0.00
33.6 54.5 mph, loud, sustained lbw appeal, given. Goes on the back foot and it turns in sharply and hits him on the back pad. Not sure if it hit in line. He's reviewed. No inside-edge on it, Snicko confirms. Hit the back pad on the knee roll, just in line with off stump, and then hits the top of middle stump according to Hawkeye. Two umpire's calls, and that means he's a goner 153/7
View dismissal DW Steyn c Dhawan b Mohammed Shami 1 8 7 0 0 14.28
36.2 81.3 mph, short on off stump, tried to make room to cut, can only pop it straight into the hands of cover point 158/8
View dismissal M Morkel b Ashwin 2 3 5 0 0 40.00
37.2 54.0 mph, a bit of air now, angling in towards middle and leg, and he clears his front leg to slog-sweep, misses it completely and it straightens to clatter into the stumps 161/9
View dismissal Imran Tahir lbw b Jadeja 8 11 10 1 0 80.00
40.2 57.8 mph, and that is that. Round-arm, angled in, goes with the arm and hits him on the front pad, halfway forward to defend, and it's lbw even before he appealed 177/10
