    8.4 that's a ripper and he's been caught at slip! From around the wicket, Ashwin drifted the ball into the left-hander with teasing flight, he pitched the ball on middle, drawing de Kock into a forward defence with his length, the ball then spun sharply away, taking the outside edge and Raina took a low catch at slip 45/1

    23.2 bowled him! Mishra bowls the faster one that goes straight on, zipping through Amla's defences as he goes back to play the ball on the leg side. Clearly beaten by the change in pace. The ball deflects off the pad and hits the stumps 104/2
    33.1 lbw! Umesh returns and gets the ball to jag into the right-hander from outside off, the umpire had his finger up in a flash. That ball hit the pad before the bat and it looks pretty adjacent. Looks like there is some reverse swing on offer, du Plessis played the wrong line because of the sharp movement into him, he was looking to guide it to third man 152/3

    40.3 Miller's been stumped by a mile! He charged Mishra to try and hit him for six over the leg side but was beaten by the dipping legbreak that spun towards him and went through the gap between bat and body, Dhoni had so much time to break the stumps, Miller did not even try to make it back 197/4
    45.1 and once again he strikes first ball! Duminy chased a very wide ball with a slash - no footwork - and gets a thin edge through to Dhoni. Ordinary ball, ordinary shot, simple catch 238/5

    46.1 he's been caught and bowled! Rohit stepped out of his crease but was beaten by the flight of the legbreak, he wasn't to the pitch of the ball and ended up punching it tamely right back at Tahir, who sets off on an epic celebratory run after taking the catch. He'll tire himself out on such a hot day! 269/4
    7.3 given lbw! But was that missing leg? The ball was quite full from round the wicket, angling into the left-hander. Dhawan was caught on the crease and hit on the pad as he looked to play on the leg side. Morkel went up immediately, and the umpire followed after a short pause ... it did look like that would have missed leg stump, or just about clipped it. 42/1
    33.4 a soft dismissal to break the stand! Rahane made room by moving outside leg and slapped an innocuous delivery straight to Miller at extra cover. His partnership with Rohit ends on 149 191/2
    39.6 has he been caught at short fine leg? What a take! Steyn bowled a half-volley on the pads, a delivery Kohli should have put away. He flicked the ball uppishly but it was dying on the tall Morne Morkel at short fine leg. Morkel got down low and caught the ball in his fingertips before it hit the ground. Is the tide turning decisively now? 214/3
    49.4 Dhoni has been caught and bowled! This is an innings that will be discussed for a while now. He's charged the young fast bowler and aimed a slog across the line, he top edged the ball high in the air and Rabada calls for it coolly and takes the catch. Dhoni fails to see India through, they need seven off two balls. 297/6
    46.5 Tahir has got another one! Raina has barely had a chance to get his eye in but he can't afford to either. He aims to slam a googly over the midwicket boundary and ends up mis-hitting it towards long on, where Duminy takes the catch 273/5
    49.5 Rabada has all but done it for South Africa! Binny also too edges the pull and skies the catch to square leg, Rabada tries to go for it himself again, but leaves it to Amla who comes running in to catch it. 297/7
