World T20 - 2nd semi final

India v South Africa

India won by 6 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

10.1

Mishra to Duminy, 1 run, slow sweep first ball, but Dhoni has a fielder for it at deep midwicket. Just the single

10.2

Mishra to du Plessis, no run, Faf jumps away from the stumps to go over extra, but the ball dips and drifts and then turns away too far past the edge

10.3

Mishra to du Plessis, 1 no ball, Faf down the wicket, this is a big no-ball, played back to Mishra, and Faf dives back into the crease

10.3

Mishra to du Plessis, FOUR, lovely shot. He is down the wicket early, reaches the pitch of a quickish delivery, and chips it over extra cover. On a knee too

10.4

Mishra to du Plessis, no run, big turn. Slower and higher this time, pitches outside leg. The turn cramps Faf, who is already down the wicket, and has to play a defensive shot lest he miss and get stumped

10.5

Mishra to du Plessis, 1 run, short of a length, on the pads, worked away for one to leg

10.6

Mishra to Duminy, 1 run, full and fast, too full for Duminy to try the slog sweep. Drives this to long-on for one

South Africa 74/2   A Mishra 1-0-8-0

12.1

Mishra to du Plessis, FOUR, another incredible shot. Skipper Faf is getting into this here. He jumps away from the stumps to open the off side again, and he is all but beaten by the excessive turn. He still goes ahead with it, away from the body, and somehow manages to lob it over point for four. Fifty for the partnership

12.2

Mishra to du Plessis, 1 run, driven to long-off to bring up the fifty for Faf. Cometh the hour, cometh the captain?

12.3

Mishra to Duminy, SIX, oh a fullie. Duminy will slog-sweep this for hours on end. Sends it way over deep midwicket

12.4

Mishra to Duminy, 1 run, wrong'un, too short, and punched to deep midwicket for one

12.5

Mishra to du Plessis, 1 run, too short, pulled wide of long-on, but Kohli does well there to keep them down to one

12.6

Mishra to Duminy, FOUR, too full, outside leg, tries the wrong'un but half-volleys don't turn. Duminy sweeps it, sweeps it square and along the ground. Beats the fielder to his left

South Africa 107/2   A Mishra 2-0-25-0

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

14.6

Mishra to Duminy, 2 runs, wrong'un, on a length, outside leg, bunted away with soft hands, between long-on and deep midwicket. Comes back for two

South Africa 127/3   A Mishra 3-0-36-0
