India v South Africa

South Africa won by an innings and 90 runs

15.5

Steyn to Singh, no run, RP walks in and flashes outside the offstump, the extra bounce actually saves him or there would have been a certain edge there

15.6

Steyn to Singh, no run, pitches on a good length just outside off and comes back, he just manages to cover the line and push it to mid-on

India 56/8   RP Singh 0* (2b)

17.6

Steyn to Singh, no run, fires in a yorker down the leg side, RP slides and just manages to dig it out

India 72/8   RP Singh 0* (5b)

18.2

Morkel to Singh, no run, RP once again moves his feet well and defends off the meat of the bat towards mid-off

18.3

Morkel to Singh, no run, pitches on middle and the extra bounce squares him up as he tries to nudge that to the on side

Morkel to Singh, 1 leg bye, slides down the legside, the ball trickles off his pads to the on side

India 74/8   RP Singh 0* (8b)

19.1

Steyn to Singh, no run, bangs in a bouncer, the bounce is loopy before it reaches Boucher

19.2

Steyn to Singh, no run, slides a little wide outside off, the length is the same, RP lets it go

19.3

Steyn to Singh, OUT, how does any tailender play that? Steyn bangs it in short of a length on middle, the bounce really squares up RP and the pace too gets the better of him as he tries to fend it off, he fails to keep the ball down and the ball lobs off the top half of his bat and goes to Smith at first slip

RP Singh c Smith b Steyn 0 (19m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 76/9   RP Singh 0 (11b)
Overs 0-50
