South Africa v India

India won by 2 wickets (with 10 balls remaining)

6.5

Khan to Amla, OUT, Bowlied'im! Angling in and moves in further after pitching, lands on a good length and Amla looks to smash it through the covers, gets an inside edge and out goes the off stump

HM Amla b Khan 16 (28m 18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

South Africa 31/1   GC Smith 15* (23b 2x4)   Z Khan 3.5-0-15-1

13.1

Harbhajan Singh to Ingram, OUT, outstanding catch by Kohli at slip, turning from a good length outside off, bowling round the wicket is Harbhajan, Ingram steps forward to defend, does so inside the line, gets an edge and Kohli dives forward to his right and clasps it with one hand inches from the ground, India strike again

CA Ingram c Kohli b Harbhajan Singh 10 (30m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

South Africa 49/2   GC Smith 22* (45b 2x4)   Harbhajan Singh 1.1-0-4-1

20.3

Pathan to de Villiers, OUT, Zaheer Khan takes a blinder, Yusuf gets a wicket in his first over, and it was not even a very good delivery, it was short and sat up, AB looked to swat it powerfully, gets a top-edge and immediately there a loud cry of 'Catch it' from behind the stumps, Zaheer at wide long-on is running at full tilt and completes a low, tumbling catch, he latches onto it with both hands though he was sprinting, and he manages to keep it in his hand though he lands awkwardly after catching the ball

AB de Villiers c Khan b Pathan 16 (32m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

South Africa 83/3   GC Smith 39* (69b 3x4)   YK Pathan 0.3-0-2-1

23.2

Harbhajan Singh to Smith, OUT, and Smith's struggle is finally over, after many, many unconvincing shots he departs attempting a sweep which flies off the back of the bat to first slip, India are in control here, he was looking to paddle that one fine, stretching well forward, but he was through early with the stroke and an easy catch results

GC Smith c Kohli b Harbhajan Singh 43 (102m 79b 3x4 0x6) SR: 54.43

South Africa 90/4   JP Duminy 3* (7b)   Harbhajan Singh 6.2-1-16-2

44.5

Patel to du Plessis, OUT, gone! Another catch for Virat, another slower ball from Munaf, Faf made room and tried to clear that fielder at cover and slipped in the process, connected pretty well but didn't get the desired elevation, Virat timed his jump perfectly and took a sharp catch, the end of an innings that could potentially clinch a World Cup spot for Faf, we'll wait

F du Plessis c Kohli b Patel 60 (94m 78b 2x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

South Africa 200/5   JP Duminy 52* (58b 2x4)   MM Patel 7.5-1-33-1

45.2

Khan to Duminy, OUT, Duminy walked way too across there, was a fullish delivery but he appeared to have made his mind up there, walked well across to flick it fine, missed as Zaheer bowled it full and straight and the stumps take a beating!

JP Duminy b Khan 52 (111m 59b 2x4 0x6) SR: 88.13

South Africa 202/6   J Botha 2* (2b)   Z Khan 7.2-0-33-2

45.5

Khan to Parnell, 1 run, OUT, run-out, short and wide delivery and Parnell runs it down to third man, senses a chance to come back for the second, proves an ill-judged run, it's an excellent throw from the deep, Dhoni collects cleanly and takes off the bails to find Parnell a few inches short, three quick wickets this Powerplay, South Africa are slipping

WD Parnell run out 5 (2m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

South Africa 207/7   J Botha 2* (2b)   Z Khan 7.5-0-38-2

48.1

Patel to Steyn, OUT, another wicket, Steyn connected well but found the solitary fielder there at deep midwicket, length ball and he had made his mind up, went big but not far enough, comfortable catch to Raina

DW Steyn c Raina b Patel 5 (12m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

South Africa 216/8   J Botha 6* (8b)   MM Patel 9.1-1-39-2

49.1

Khan to Botha, OUT, Done in by the low bounce, Botha is bowled! Short and quick from round the wicket, Botha had shaped up for the pull, was trying to blast it through midwicket, it didn't rise up as much as he wanted to, the rest is history

J Botha b Khan 9 (26m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 64.28

South Africa 219/9   M Morkel 0* (0b)   Z Khan 9.1-0-42-3

49.2

Khan to Tsotsobe, OUT, run-out, South Africa have lost six wickets for 25, since the Powerplay, dropped into the off side, Tsotso set off for a single, was sent back but it was too late, it was a direct hit from extra cover by way of an under-arm flick by Yusuf to close the innings

LL Tsotsobe run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 220/10   M Morkel 0* (0b)   Z Khan 9.2-0-43-3
