World T20 - 2nd semi final

India v South Africa

India won by 6 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

13.6

Ashwin to de Villiers, 1 run, short of a length, wide, cut away to deep point for one

South Africa 116/3   AB de Villiers 1* (1b)

14.1

Mishra to de Villiers, 2 runs, flighted on off, driven towards extra cover, Yuvraj misfields, allows two runs

14.2

Mishra to de Villiers, no run, another drive to extra cover, but this time Yuvraj fields well

14.3

Mishra to de Villiers, 2 runs, slightly short of a length, quick too, AB is clearly beaten by the trajectory, but he gets enough bat on it to chip it over Mishra's head

14.4

Mishra to de Villiers, FOUR, what a shot. AB tells Dhoni you need more fielders. You need a field for a left-hand and a right-hand batsman. He has taken this full ball from a foot outside leg, and has reverse-swept it past slip for four

14.5

Mishra to de Villiers, 1 run, driven to deep cover for one

South Africa 125/3   AB de Villiers 10* (6b 1x4)

15.1

Ashwin to de Villiers, 1 leg bye, AB looks to sweep a wide ball outside leg fine, but gets only a faint tickle to short fine

15.3

Ashwin to de Villiers, OUT, 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

AB de Villiers c RG Sharma b Ashwin 10 (7m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

South Africa 129/4   AB de Villiers 10 (8b 1x4)
