View dismissal Q de Kock c Kohli b Raina 109 120 87 17 1 125.28
26.5 55.4 mph, taken at long-off and Raina has broken through! Came down the track for a heave over the leg side, but he has not got close enough for the ball to hit against the turn. Gets a hug from his captain as he heads off to the pavilion a tired, but probably satisfied man. 187/2
View dismissal HM Amla c †Dhoni b MM Sharma 23 18 13 5 0 176.92
3.6 80.9 mph, edged and taken! Mohit has see-sawed this way and that with his length. This time a back of a good length delivery gets a little more bounce. Amla thought it was there to cut with the room on offer, but with the ball rising up higher, it takes the edge and settles in Dhoni's gloves. Mohit just looks relived. Kohli roars from mid-off. And Wankhede goes "Indiaaaaa.... India" 33/1
F du Plessis retired hurt 133 184 115 9 6 115.65
43.6 from Kumar, this is a short ball, slower as well, Faf goes for the pull but cannot connect 351/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c †Dhoni b Kumar 119 98 61 3 11 195.08
46.4 76.7 mph, Oh, the short ball gets him! And Wankhede stands up to salute him. "ABD, ABD, ABD" they cant as he raises his bat to them. The Indians come to congratulate him as well. Now for the small matter of the ball that did him - a slower short one that he tried to pull off the front foot. Feathered an edge to the keeper 398/3

View dismissal RG Sharma c Imran Tahir b Abbott 16 21 20 3 0 80.00
4.6 85.2 mph, caught at third man and Abbott has got the big one! Rohit was going for a heave ho seeing it was a length ball. But I think this was off the toe end which carries quite nicely to Imran Tahir running in from the boundary. Excellent start for South Africa 22/1
View dismissal S Dhawan c Amla b Rabada 60 100 59 8 0 101.69
22.3 90.2 mph, goes across the line with a flick as Rabada angles the fuller ball across the left-hander. Leading edge presents a chance but has the fielder hurt himself in the process of taking a great old catch? Hashim Amla it is. Everyone is checking on him. It looks like he is bleeding just above his left eye. His head thudded fliush into the ground after he completed the catch. Ouch, that looked bad. But still he was able to hold on. 156/3
View dismissal V Kohli c †de Kock b Rabada 7 11 6 0 1 116.66
7.4 chases the wide one and edges it again! de Kock, take a bow. That is a catch that will be replayed forever. He might well be the best ODI keeper around right now. Rabada goes full, Kohli has to reach for it because he is lead-footed. It was a run-scoring opportunity because it is almost an overpitched delivery. But the extra pace seems to work against the batsman. Big nick, which means it hurtles between slip and the keeper. de Kock flings himself full length to his right and plucks it with one hand 44/2
View dismissal AM Rahane c Behardien b Steyn 87 87 58 9 3 150.00
26.2 84.1 mph, pace works again. Sheer express and accurate pace. This is short on middle, Rahane has to go for the big hit. Launches it over midwicket, but there is a man in the deep and he collects the simplest of catches. Steyn pops a vein celebrating, as per. South Africa are nearing yet another away series win 185/5
View dismissal SK Raina b Rabada 12 10 13 1 1 92.30
24.5 89.7 mph, moved too far across, worried about the short ball, but this is the deadly leg-stump yorker that sneaks past him and clatters his castle! Rabada showing he has smarts to go with his raw ability. Gets a big ol hug from his captain AB de Villiers. Pace is pace, even on flat wickets. 172/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Imran Tahir 27 50 29 3 0 93.10
34.2 54.2 mph, got 'im! the Tahir googly is too good for Dhoni, he was charging down the pitch, but doesn't expect the ball to spin in, it slips past the inside edge and on to the stumps, this game is heading for a quick close now 219/9
View dismissal AR Patel c Miller b Steyn 5 13 8 0 0 62.50
28.6 84.0 mph, all too simple for Steyn. He yells until he loses his voice after Axar slices a short ball straight at point. 195/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c sub (CH Morris) b Steyn 0 6 4 0 0 0.00
30.2 89.2 mph, tapped away to cover, that's a third for Steyn. It was a short of a length delivery, but Bhajji was into the push a bit too quickly. Ball held up in the pitch and became his downfall. 201/7
View dismissal B Kumar c Miller b Imran Tahir 1 13 8 0 0 12.50
32.6 47.8 mph, drops it a touch short, Bhuvneshwar looks to swipe it from way outside off, hits near the bottom of the bat and holes out to Miller, India sinking fast but the crowd singing "Sachin, Sachin" as the giantscreen shows Tendulkar in the stands 210/8
View dismissal A Mishra lbw b Rabada 4 12 7 1 0 57.14
35.6 88.3 mph, great reply from the standout bowler of the series Kagiso Rabada, a yorker that is much too good for the tailender, plumb in front, and South Africa complete their first bilateral series victory in India with something close to the perfect performance. The margin of victory is an astonishing 214 runs! 224/10
