View dismissal PA Patel run out (Rahane/†Samson) 1 4 1 0 0 100.00
0.5 Binny to Kohli, this is two in two! Very poor running from Patel there. Kohli dabbed the full delivery to cover point and called for a single, but Parthiv was slow to respond to a late call. He was well short when the throw from Rahane came to the keeper. More of Kohli's mistake actually, because Patel was responding to his call.. 1/2
View dismissal YV Takawale c †Samson b Binny 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
0.4 early strike for Binny! Takawale didn't look in any hurry till the last ball, but he decides to show some aggression against the gentle medium pace. He clears his front leg and attempts to launch this over mid-on, but that nice shape on the ball means it kisses the outside edge and ends up with the keeper 1/1
View dismissal V Kohli* c Southee b Tambe 21 51 25 3 0 84.00
10.3 this is the end! Now Kohli hits it straight to midwicket. Short and on any other day, this would have disappeared out of the ground, but Kohli seems to have been infected by the same bug that his hit the rest of his mates..Gets hit high on the pad and lobs it straight to the fielder, who takes an easy catch. Da 46/7
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Smith b Richardson 3 7 7 0 0 42.85
2.1 he strikes first ball! Yuvraj's year of misery continues..it's only bowled at 130 kph and just short of length outside off.. Yuvraj just hangs his bat at that one and sends the outside edge straight to the second slip fielder. That was a really poor attempt and the ball was not even that fast as he made it look 5/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Richardson 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
2.2 now AB! What's happening! You don't expect such loose shots from AB. Another tame delivery just outside off and AB has a lazy waft at that one, ends up chopping it on to his stumps 5/4
View dismissal S Rana b Watson 3 14 8 0 0 37.50
5.2 now Watson strikes! This is not too different from how AB got out.. He tries to punch this short of length delivery through cover, there is no room, and he ends up chopping this on to the stumps.. 17/5
View dismissal JA Morkel c Smith b Tambe 7 14 13 1 0 53.84
8.4 this is falling apart.. still only 28 on the board! Albie was so patient till now, but it runs out as he tries to launch this slow flighted delivery out of the ground, only manages the toe of the bat and it lobs gently for Steven Smith at mid-off 28/6
View dismissal MA Starc c Binny b Bhatia 18 27 16 2 0 112.50
13.6 Binny catches this one on the second attempt! He bowls this one wide outside off, gives the batsman invitation to go for cut, which he does. But he hits it straight to Binny at point.. it pops out of his hand in the first instance, but as he falls, he manages to hold on to it 62/8
View dismissal R Rampaul c Southee b Tambe 13 19 13 0 1 100.00
14.3 fun and games over now, Rampaul looks to smash it over the infield, but only manages a toe-end.. This lobs for the cover fielder 70/9
View dismissal AB Dinda lbw b Tambe 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
14.6 this is over! The batsman had no clue about this googly.. He played back to it and was hit right in front. 70/10

View dismissal AM Rahane c †Patel b Starc 23 19 19 4 0 121.05
4.3 super delivery! This one is angled across the batsman and deviates just enough to catch the outside edge. Rahane has to go, but he has already done more than 40% of the job 31/1
View dismissal KK Nair c †Patel b Starc 8 32 12 0 0 66.66
6.3 what's happening here! Nair slashes at this short and wide one and gets a thick outside edge to the keeper. Easy catch for Parthiv.. Kohli is pumped. Strange sort of period this.. 36/3
View dismissal SV Samson run out (Takawale/†Patel) 2 6 6 0 0 33.33
5.4 from Rampaul, another rising delivery, the batsman gets on top of it and drops it towards backward square leg. He tries to sneak a second one as the fielder is placed deep, but the throw comes in and finds Samson short of the crease. 35/2

12.5 oh no! Watson tries to repeat the shot but is nowhere near the pitch of the delivery, only manages a big top edge to AB at cover. Chahal continues to impress - he slowed this one down intentionally 68/4
