South Africa v India

South Africa won by 48 runs (D/L method)

11.1

Nehra to Smith, OUT, Harbhajan takes a smart catch! Smith went down the track and flat batted it to right of mid-off where Harbhajan moved swiftly and lunged out to take a sharp catch

GC Smith c Harbhajan Singh b Nehra 18 (51m 30b 2x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

South Africa 57/1   HM Amla 36* (39b 6x4)   A Nehra 1.1-0-7-1

19.2

Yuvraj Singh to van Wyk, OUT, Gone! Yuvraj walks quietly towards his team-mates! It turned away from the off stump line and Van Wyk stabbed it low to the right of lone slip fielder Kohli, who swoops forward to pouch it

MN van Wyk c Kohli b Yuvraj Singh 15 (35m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 68.18

South Africa 106/2   HM Amla 63* (66b 8x4)   Yuvraj Singh 2.2-0-14-1

20.3

Sharma to Amla, 1 leg bye, OUT, What a poor judgement for the second run. Greed! It was a mis-timed pull shot, the ball rolled away towards short fine-leg region. The slip fielder turned and rushed back. For some reason, Amla decided to turn back for the second run and was never in the frame when Dhoni collected the throw and broke the stumps

HM Amla run out 64 (93m 69b 8x4 0x6) SR: 92.75

South Africa 111/3   AB de Villiers 3* (4b)   RG Sharma 0.3-0-1-0

21.2

Yuvraj Singh to de Villiers, OUT, Spun and gone! It drifted in round the stumps, lands on the off and middle line, and turned away. AB lunged forward to defend. Dhoni took the 'catch' and broke the stumps in a flash. Simon Taufel, the umpire at the bowler's end, gave it out. So I reckon there was an edge. Replays in: Snicko shows there was no edge but he is stumped! Given out caught, of course

AB de Villiers c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 3 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

South Africa 115/4   JP Duminy 4* (4b)   Yuvraj Singh 3.2-0-18-2

22.5

Sharma to du Plessis, OUT, What is happening out there? Another poor judgement! It was pushed towards square-leg and he rushed across for the non-existent run. Virat moved to his left, picked it up and fired a hit at the striker's end. du Plessis had turned back but he couldn't get back in time

F du Plessis run out 1 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

South Africa 118/5   JP Duminy 6* (9b)   RG Sharma 1.5-0-5-0

37.2

Yuvraj Singh to Botha, OUT, Stumped! floated outside the off stump line, Botha goes for the sweep, misses and also drags the back foot outside the crease. Dhoni, as ever, doesn't take his hands back after collecting. He collects and immediately moves his hands forward to break the stumps. He knew immediately that he had got his man. Third umpire confirms it

J Botha st †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 44 (59m 59b 3x4 0x6) SR: 74.57

South Africa 188/6   JP Duminy 31* (37b 1x4)   Yuvraj Singh 7.2-0-33-3

47.2

Harbhajan Singh to Peterson, OUT, driven to Yusuf at extra cover and there is a terrible mix-up. Yusuf fires the throw to Harbhajan. Duminy had rushed across and Peterson wasn't interested but decides to get across. Harbhajan dislodges the bails by accident just as he was about to collect the throw. He then uprooted the stumps. Peterson sacrificed his wicket there

RJ Peterson run out 31 (39m 35b 3x4 0x6) SR: 88.57

South Africa 242/7   JP Duminy 54* (62b 2x4)   Harbhajan Singh 9.2-0-56-0
