View dismissal M Vijay c Morkel b Tsotsobe 16 30 32 3 0 50.00
7.6 81.4 mph, Tsotsobe breaks through. Vijay goes for the big heave-ho across the line over mid-on but doesn't quite connect as well as he would have hoped. The ball lobbed over mid-on and Morne rushed back to take a good catch, with the ball dropping over his shoulder 21/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar b Botha 24 78 44 2 0 54.54
18.5 52.3 mph, Botha dashes off in a celebratory run to nowhere! It turned in from outside off stump, Tendulkar went back and it perhaps kept a touch low and came off slower than he thought it would. Tendulkar tries to punch it to the off side but edges it to his off stump. He had just edged the previous delivery which too had come off a touch slow ... 67/3

12.1 54.4 mph, Trapped! from round the stumps, it landed on a good length on the off stump line and moved towards off stump. Colin leaned forward to defend and it must have struck the pad first.Replays in. It hit the pad first before it hit the bat 66/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers c †Dhoni b Nehra 8 14 13 1 0 61.53
15.1 81.2 mph, AB, who looked pretty scratchy out there, is gone now. It lands on a good length around the off stump line, and seams away, AB leans forward to defend and it clips the outer edge. Fine delivery this. 77/3

24.3 43.7 mph, rushes down the track and heaves the flighted delivery from outside off straight to long-on! Guess he wanted to finish things up in a hurry but ... 120/4
View dismissal DA Miller c sub (PP Chawla) b Khan 27 36 28 3 1 96.42
33.3 73.8 mph, Miller gone! SA six down.Now then... Now then .. It was the slower bouncer, and Miller couldn't adjust his pull to the pace of the ball. It actually cut in from outside off and bounced. The top edge takes the ball to square-leg. Zaheer spreads his arms and smiles in joy. 160/6
View dismissal J Botha lbw b Khan 4 18 7 0 0 57.14
35.1 81.9 mph, And then they were three. The game is hurtling towards a thrilling finale. India have come back from nowhere.

View dismissal WD Parnell c Yuvraj Singh b Patel 12 50 27 1 0 44.44
42.6 73.2 mph, India have won! What a stunning collapse from South Africa. They are going to hear that Choke word all over again at the press conference. It was another shortish delivery outside off and he has cut it straight to Yuvraj at point! Parnell can't believe what he has done. Munaf takes out the final two in this over. Parnell stands there, and bites his helmet strap. Meanwhile. Yuvraj is on a celebratory dash to nowhere. Munaf smiles. Indians mob him. Parnell stands still.
In the absence of Jacques Kallis, South Africa are carrying a long tail and it has cost them today. The critics will bay for blood. They will scream that SA have choked again. India have bounced back yet again. It's 1-1. Phew. When Smith fell, after taking the batting Powerplay, it was 152 for 5. 189 all out. 189/10
View dismissal DW Steyn run out (Yuvraj Singh/Vijay) 6 19 14 0 0 42.85
38.6 from Yuvraj Singh, Steyn is run out! It was pushed towards mid-on and they rushed across for another risky run. Pressure. Tension. The midwicket fielder (vijay) rushed to his left to intercept it and the throw comes to Yuvraj who collected and moved his hands towards the stumps. The ball nearly popped out of his hands but he broke the stumps in time. Gone! Eight down and wobbling. What is happening out there? 177/8

42.2 72.0 mph, Morne has blown it! Munaf nails him! It was a short delivery outside off and Morne went for the match-winning four. Cut. Crash. The ball flew but straight to point! The Indians roar. Enter Lonwabo Tsotsobe, who bowled so wonderfully earlier in the evening 188/9
