1.3

MM Sharma to Amla, no run, short of a length, outside off, punched away off the back foot, but can't beat cover

1.4

MM Sharma to Amla, no run, full, on the pads, Amla misses out. He has found the man at midwicket with the flick

1.6

South Africa 13/1   MM Sharma 1-0-3-0

3.1

MM Sharma to Amla, FOUR, that's Amla showing his inner Dilshan. Stands tall, clears the front leg, and smashes this short ball through cover. Meets it on the top of the bounce

3.2

MM Sharma to Amla, 2 runs, slower ball from Sharma, but Amla moves across to open up the leg side, and takes a couple fine of fine leg

3.3

MM Sharma to Amla, FOUR, these are some lucky runs. Amla shows Shamra that he is moving away, but stays his ground when the ball is delivered. Sharma stays straight, but can't do anything about the outside edge that goes wide of Dhoni

3.4

MM Sharma to Amla, 1 run, moves across this time, is beaten, but gets a leg-bye

3.5

MM Sharma to du Plessis, FOUR, du Plessis opens up. Moves across to a length ball, and whips it over the leg side. Over midwicket

3.6

MM Sharma to du Plessis, 2 runs, and du Plessis moves across again, and bunts this into the leg side. Straight of deep midwicket. Comes back for the second

South Africa 34/1   MM Sharma 2-0-20-0

19.1

MM Sharma to Miller, 1 run, lucky to get away with a length ball. That was in the slot to hit a six. Doesn't get a good hit. Takes a single to long-on

19.2

MM Sharma to Duminy, 1 run, wide yorker, squirted out for a single. Good start to the over for India

19.3

MM Sharma to Miller, SIX, misses the yorker by inches, and Mohit makes him pay for it. Gets under this low full toss, lofted straight of mid-off for a flat six. Top shot

19.4

MM Sharma to Miller, no run, good wide yorker. Just inside those tram lines. Beats the inside edge as he tries to squirt it past short third

19.5

MM Sharma to Miller, FOUR, tries the wide yorker, but the third man is in. Don't quite get that plan. If you are bowling wide yorkers, have third man back. Miller drives this half-volley, and goes over short third for four. South Africa have never lost after scoring more than 166

19.6

MM Sharma to Miller, 2 runs, good finish by Mohit, a yorker, middle and leg, he digs it out towards deep midwicket. He stumbles as he runs but has enough time to come back for the second

South Africa 172/4   MM Sharma 3-0-34-0
