    1.3 Dala belts out an appeal for leg-before. And the finger goes up. Was it slanting down the leg side? Rohit chooses not to challenge the on-field out decision. The umpires check for the no-ball: Dala is all good. Pretty full and skids back into Rohit, who plays all around it, and plays late. He is pinned on the pad, but it might have headed past leg stump? Dala has dismissed Rohit for the third time this T20 series 14/1
    15.1 Dhawan steps out the track and hoicks a shorter ball to deep midwicket. Dhawan chances a second but he has been caught short by a belting direct hit from Junior Dala in the deep. He's come of age. He attacked the ball and nailed the stumps down. End of a Jekyll-Hyde innings from Dhawan. 126/4
    9.4 Behardien runs to his right from long-on and tracks down this loft from Raina. Looped up on off stump, Raina hoists it in the air but doesn't get enough power behind the shot and can't clear Behardien in the deep. He's gone for a punchy 43 79/2
    13.1 Dala returns and has Pandey holing out to long-on. He runs in hard and hits the pitch harder. Banged in short at off stump, Pandey can't control a pull. He aimed to hit it over midwicket. Instead, drags it straighter to Miller 111/3
    19.2 back of a length and slanting in, cramps Pandya for room. He eyes up the leg side and aims to lift it over midwicket. Instead, he sends a leading edge to Klaasen, who runs in and settles under this skier 163/6
    18.2 Dhoni swings, gets more height as opposed to distance, and finds Miller at the edge of the long-off boundary. Length ball outside off - right in the hitting radar - but Dhoni can't get enough behind the shot. Dala's evening keeps getting better 151/5
    19.4 Umpire Jele gives Karthik out lbw. The batsman challenges the on-field out decision. Even before the bowler delivered the ball, Karthik had shuffled across the off stump. He looks to work it away to the leg side. But this reverse-swinging yorker pings his front boot in line with off stump. The tracker returns three reds and Karthik has to exit 168/7

    2.5 Bhuvneshwar fools Hendricks with a 120ks knuckle ball - 20ks slower than the previous ball. Great skill. The batsman does not spot the change-up and is waaaay too early into his loft. He ends up skewing it in the air, Dhawan settles under this at midwicket, and slaps his thigh in celebration, like he often does 10/1
    9.1 half-tracker on middle stump, 101ks, Miller lines it up.... and pulls it straight into the lap of deep midwicket. That should've been smashed over the boundary. But it isn't Miller's day. It isn't SA's day. This chase is going nowhere 45/2
    15.6 slower knuckle ball outside off, Duminy aims to slug it over midwicket, again. He does not pick the change-up, loses his shape, and winds up top-edging a catch to Rohit at mid-off. Duminy goes and with it SA's hopes? 109/4
    12.5 Klaasen nails it straight to Bhuvneshwar at mid-off. Bhuvneshwar cops a stinging blow. This was pitched further up on middle, the batsman backs away and drills it flat and hard to mid-off 79/3
    19.6 full-toss outside off, Jonker can only splice a catch to Rohit, the stand-in captain, at extra cover. India add the T20 trophy to the ODI trophy. Another impressive over from Bhuvneshwar Kumar to close it out 165/6
    16.3 Bumrah flattens the middle stump. Skiddy back of a length ball on middle stump, barges into Morris' castle. He swipes across the line but only collects fresh air. Bumrah knocks out the middle stump 114/5
