    1.2 knocks over the off-stump, and Pandey strikes straight away. Brute of an inswinger from Pandey, pitches it right up outside off and Wolvaardt jams the bat down, does not account for the movement at all as the ball beats inside edge by some distance and flattens off-stump 1/1

    20.4 plays right across a straight one! What a way to go! After playing some of the crispest shots, she plants her front leg across on off stump, brings the bat around it, looking to hit midwicket. Kaur's offbreak pitches on middle and off, holds its line, hits low on the pad and that's that. End of a supreme innings - made 92 of South Africa's 134. 134/3
    15.5 finally, India break this dangerous partnership, and it is Chetty, the more sedate partner who is gone, but they'll take this. Backs herself to clear mid-off with this lofted drive. It's in the slot to be bit, to be fair to her. Just that she finds Jhulan Goswami, India's tallest fielder 92/2
    27.3 b-e-a-utiful! She flights the ball so much - it nearly goes up 10 feet in the air - and people cry out for batsmen to come down the traco to her. Well, du Preez does, and she's completely done in by the dip. That is why Yadav is so dangerous. Her dip, it's sharp and ever present. The batsman, panicking upon seeing the ball on its descent, plays across the line towards midwicket and misses it completely. Verma does the rest behind the stumps 160/4

    29 plays inside the line and Kaur has a second big wicket! Starts a touch wide of the crease, gets little turn off the pitch, but it certainly does hurry off it. Kapp tries to block with an open face, to perhaps find a single behind point. But she ends up being slow to bring the bat down 162/5
    48.4 walks across and goes for a slog. And of all the wide spaces on the leg side, she picks out backward square leg. Hits it straight to her and offers a simple catch 265/8
    40 in the air and mid-off settles under it. This was coming, the dots had been piling up. Sees this length ball and tries to clear mid-off. All she can do is chip it high in the air and it barely crosses the 30-yard circle 203/6
    46.4 lofted over mid-off but Jhulan Goswami is there at the deep and she snaffles it. Fullish length, seam-up and outside off, Tryon shovels it and gets good elevation but knocks it straight into the hands of long-off 252/7
    49.2 done in by drift and flight. Takes it away from the batsman and Ismail comes charging down. Ends up having to really reach out and makes no contact and almost tumbles over as she loses balance. Straightforward stumping for the bowler 265/9

    12 the stumps are a mess. Brilliant bowling. It's the slower ball again, the response to Raut coming down the track again. This time the batsman doesn't adjust to the lack of pace and simply swipes across the line. She misses. Khaka hits 47/2
    1.2 picks out deep square leg! A hat-trick of single-digits for India's gun opener! The No. 1 bowler in Women's ODIs strikes back and how! Goes for the short ball, which to be honest is timed perfectly, but Mandhana is shocked to find Ismail, the boundary rider, moving smartly to her left and holding onto a super catch, low down. 4/1
    38.1 picks out long-on and van Niekerk roars in celebration. Deepti advances, getting to the pitch of the ball, but she just doesn't have the power to clear the fielder 118/8
    12.2 through her! South Africa exult as they get Mithali Raj for a golden duck for the first time in her career! It's the one that doesn't turn too much and the batsman plays for a big legbreak. Leaves a little gap for the ball to sneak through and clatter off stump. Van Niekerk screams for joy and is promptly lost underneath a green huddle. What a strike for South Africa. What a bowling change! 48/3
    12.4 a second strike in three balls! van Niekerk got 4 for 0 not so long ago, and here she's got 2 for 1. Another non-turning legbreak, to which Kaur lunges forward and blocks outside the line, expecting the ball to deviate more. Thuds into the front pad adjacent to the stumps and umpire Williams raises her finger 48/4
    15.5 look at that! That's a ripper from Khaka. On a length and draws the batsman forward, Krishnamurthy sticks the bat out and the ball straightens late to rip past the outside edge and take out off-stump. This is all falling apart too quickly for India. Looking glum 53/5
    16.3 gone next ball. Look at that for a legbreak. Flight, drift and turn. Pandey falls for the trap as the ball pitches around off and pushes forward hopefully. The ball spins past the outside edge and it's a straightforward stumping for the keeper 56/6
    19.5 India are self-destructing in every sense. Verma keeps out a yorker very well, first up, sliding it to point, and then jogs on thinking there's a single. Deepti too responds from the other end before she realises Lee is at point and she's a fine fielder. Sends Verma back, but the call comes too late. 65/7

    44.1 back of a length ball, Bisht swivels around and gets a top-edge. The result is a catch for the South Africa captain van Niekerk that she would have taken in her sleep. Doesn't move an inch at square leg 155/9
    46 and that's the end of it. Fuller, outside off, drawing the batsman forward. Yadav reaches out and sticks the bat out, gets a thick outside edge that is held by the wicketkeeper easily 158/10
