5.1

Ashwin to Amla, 1 wide, and he starts with a wide down leg

5.1

Ashwin to Amla, OUT, what a superb delivery from Ashwin. He bowls the carrom ball that pitches well outside leg, Amla plays for it, but the ball has turned more than he expects, and has pegged back the off stump. Will this be the moment people will talk about for years?

HM Amla b Ashwin 22 (24m 16b 4x4 0x6) SR: 137.50

5.2

Ashwin to Duminy, no run, flighted outside off, defended off the front foot

5.3

Ashwin to Duminy, no run, flighted, on the toes, defended to midwicket

5.4

Ashwin to Duminy, no run, flighted outside leg, Duminy tries the sweep, but is beaten

5.5

Ashwin to Duminy, no run, defended from the crease

5.6

Ashwin to Duminy, no run, another defensive shot brings to end a superb over. Match-turning one?

South Africa 44/2   R Ashwin 1-0-1-1
13.1

Ashwin to du Plessis, no run, appeal for a catch down the leg side, but this is only to make sure it is not a wide. And the ball has hit the thigh pad. So Dhoni and Dharmasena do well here

13.2

Ashwin to du Plessis, SIX, first really poor delivery from Ahswin. Too shirt, pitches outside leg, and Faf pulls it over wide long-on for six. They knock the gloves after the hit. He is using the depth of the crease superbly

13.3

Ashwin to du Plessis, 1 run, swept away off a length, gets a single

13.4

Ashwin to Duminy, 1 run, tries to sweep this from leg, gets a leg-bye

13.5

Ashwin to du Plessis, OUT, Faf is bowled. Ashwin has done it again, but this is a strange dismissal, something we are quite used to seeing in T20s. Faf jumps away again to make room, Ashwin bowls a carrom ball that pitches well outside leg. Faf tries to go over the leg side, but misses, and it has gone off his body to tickle the off bail off

F du Plessis b Ashwin 58 (53m 41b 5x4 2x6) SR: 141.46

13.6

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

South Africa 116/3   R Ashwin 2-0-10-2
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

15.2

Ashwin to Duminy, 1 run, driven to long-off for one

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

15.4

Ashwin to Duminy, no run, shortish, gets turn and bounce, but the edge doesn't carry to short third

15.5

Ashwin to Duminy, no run, pushed to extra cover

15.6

Ashwin to Duminy, 1 run, short of a length, takes it from off, gets a single to deep midwicket

South Africa 130/4   R Ashwin 3-0-12-3
17.1

Ashwin to Miller, 1 run, on a length, offbreak, pushed through cover for one

17.2

Ashwin to Duminy, no run, big shout for lbw as he is beaten on the sweep, but this has hit him on top of the pad. No lbw here

17.3

Ashwin to Duminy, SIX, jumps at him, right to its pitch, swings through smoothly, and clears long-on easily. Beautiful old-fashioned shot

17.4

Ashwin to Duminy, 1 run, tries the sweep from outside off, gets a bottom edge through Dhoni's legs

17.5

Ashwin to Miller, 1 run, gets a single to leg

17.6

Ashwin to Duminy, 1 run, Ashwin's first wicketless over comes to an end. Worked away off the pads to deep midwicket

South Africa 146/4   R Ashwin 4-0-22-3
