View dismissal GC Smith* c Kohli b Harbhajan Singh 43 102 79 3 0 54.43
23.2 51.1 mph, 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 90/4
View dismissal HM Amla b Khan 16 28 18 2 0 88.88
6.5 82.8 mph, 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 31/1
View dismissal CA Ingram c Kohli b Harbhajan Singh 10 30 16 1 0 62.50
13.1 54.1 mph, 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 49/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Khan b Pathan 16 32 20 0 0 80.00
20.3 55.3 mph, 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 83/3
View dismissal JP Duminy b Khan 52 111 59 2 0 88.13
45.2 83.2 mph, 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! 202/6
View dismissal F du Plessis c Kohli b Patel 60 94 78 2 0 76.92
44.5 74.5 mph, 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 200/5
View dismissal J Botha b Khan 9 26 14 0 0 64.28
49.1 84.3 mph, 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 219/9
View dismissal WD Parnell run out (Patel/†Dhoni) 5 2 3 1 0 166.66
45.5 from Khan, 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 207/7
View dismissal DW Steyn c Raina b Patel 5 12 8 0 0 62.50
48.1 73.2 mph, 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 216/8
M Morkel not out 0 6 0 0 0 -
View dismissal LL Tsotsobe run out (Pathan) 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
49.2 from Khan, 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 220/10

View dismissal RG Sharma b Morkel 23 67 45 2 0 51.11
16.3 89.5 mph, bowled'im! Came back in again and appeared to keep low, landed short of a good length and was heading towards middle and off, Rohit was late in getting down to it, got a bit of an inside edge onto the stumps, game on 61/3
View dismissal M Vijay c & b Steyn 1 9 8 0 0 12.50
2.2 81.4 mph, Dale Steyn pulls off a stunning caught-and -bowled, this is a slow track in Cape Town, this ball from Steyn stops a bit on Vijay who has to check his drive, the ball pops to the right of Steyn, who has to change direction from his follow-through and dive to latch on to that one, it was at a catch-able height though, and Vijay's one-day struggles continues, great athleticism from Steyn 4/1
View dismissal V Kohli c †de Villiers b Morkel 28 51 41 5 0 68.29
14.6 86.6 mph, Morkel's persistence pays off, short of a good length but much closer to off stump this time with the right amount of nip, Kohli plays at that one and feathers it to the keeper, good consistent line from Morkel has reaped its reward 56/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh lbw b Duminy 16 43 27 2 0 59.25
24.3 51.9 mph, Taufel raises his finger, slightly quicker through the air, angling it on middle and leg, Yuvraj got across and closed the face on it only to miss it, didn't really appear to straighten, was rapped on the pads and the umpire had no doubt, we'll have to check out the replay. The only thing to see is whether it would have gone down but it seemed adjacent to the naked eye 93/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †de Villiers b Botha 5 15 12 1 0 41.66
19.5 52.3 mph, India are slipping here, short outside off, turned in, Dhoni sensed a chance, rocked back to cut it past point, got an edge and AB fumbled it on the first attempt only to recover and clasp it in the second, South Africa hold the edge now. How will Yusuf and Raina respond? 69/4
View dismissal SK Raina c †de Villiers b Morkel 37 74 47 4 0 78.72
36.4 85.9 mph, Raina won't like to see that replay, a nothing shot, leaves his stumps as he backs away and looks to crash a short of length ball through cover, the trademark extra bounce from Morkel means that attempted flat-bat hit takes the top-edge and flies to AB, Morne does the trick 168/6
View dismissal YK Pathan c Morkel b Steyn 59 69 50 6 3 118.00
39.5 87.9 mph, Morkel has shown he's an outstanding outfielder, he has pulled off an outstanding catch at third man to send back danger man Yusuf Pathan, it was shortish and wide from Steyn, Yusuf swung his bat at that and gets a top edge, the ball soars towards Morkel at third man, who had to back pedal and took that overhead, it needed a tall man to take that catch, and South Africa had their tallest fielder to pouch it, wild celebrations from the home side 182/7

View dismissal Z Khan c Smith b Tsotsobe 14 31 25 2 0 56.00
45.5 76.1 mph, and that's all the swinging Zaheer will do today, another short ball from Tsotsobe, Zaheer was completely cramped for room, he tried to flat-bat that one over the in-field, can't time the ball though and the ball loops to mid-off, this match is on a knife-edge, Nehar and Munaf can't bat but all they need is some trademark Harbhajan hits 208/8
