    0.4 oh he has given this. is it nervous from the umpire too or a great decision? De Kock is not happy with the call. He goes for a big drive to a length ball outside off, the fielders go up immediately for the inside edge, Ian Gould raises his finger after thinking about it. De Kock is not thrilled about the decision. Replays show there is a sound as it passes the bat, so the umpire has got it right 9/1

    5.1 what a superb delivery from Ashwin. He bowls the carrom ball that pitches well outside leg, Amla plays for it, but the ball has turned more than he expects, and has pegged back the off stump. Will this be the moment people will talk about for years? 44/2
    13.5 Faf is bowled. Ashwin has done it again, but this is a strange dismissal, something we are quite used to seeing in T20s. Faf jumps away again to make room, Ashwin bowls a carrom ball that pitches well outside leg. Faf tries to go over the leg side, but misses, and it has gone off his body to tickle the off bail off 115/3

    15.3 three Ashwin overs, three huge wickets. Is he turning this match for India? This, for a change, is a long hop outside leg. A blindfolded AB can hit these for sixes, but this time he gets a top edge and is caught at long leg 129/4

    3.5 Rohit is gone. He tries to hit this on the up and straight down the ground. The ball is a touch shorter than he expects and he skies it. This has gone nowhere. Faf comes around from mid-on to complete the catch 39/1
    9.3 the big Rahane wicket. He charges at Parnell, who bowls a bouncer, Rahane still swings at it without any control. Gets a top edge. AB makes a lot of ground from deep midwicket, and turns this into a comfortable catch 77/2

    15.6 AB flies. Ab catches. Is there a twist still? Yuvraj gets too close to this one as he tries to go over long-off. Doesn't get the elevation. AB runs in and takes the catch with a dive 133/3
    18.3 Raina doesn't complete the job, but he has played his part. Short of a length, outside off, a nothing shot as he tries to clear mid-off, and ends up lobbing it to the man 167/4
