Played at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur (neutral venue)
4 April 2014 - night match (20-over match)

Kumar to de Kock, FOUR, lucky four runs. This is short, angling away, he has the room to go after it, but not enough. Gets the bottom edge, past the diving Dhoni. Slightly nervous from both the batsman and the bowler

South Africa 9/0   Q de Kock 6* (3b 1x4)   B Kumar 0.3-0-7-0

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

South Africa 21/1   HM Amla 6* (7b 1x4)   MM Sharma 1.1-0-7-0

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

South Africa 27/1   HM Amla 12* (9b 2x4)   MM Sharma 1.3-0-13-0

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

South Africa 32/1   F du Plessis 10* (9b 1x4)   MM Sharma 1.5-0-18-0

Kumar to Amla, FOUR, lovely shot from Amla. Short of a length, angling in, and he has caressed it past midwicket. Yuvraj escorts it to the fence

South Africa 38/1   HM Amla 17* (11b 3x4)   B Kumar 2.1-0-16-1

Kumar to Amla, FOUR, another Dilshan shot from Amla. Opens the front leg, and smashes this over extra cover

South Africa 42/1   HM Amla 21* (14b 4x4)   B Kumar 2.4-0-20-1

Raina to du Plessis, FOUR, slightly short of a length, he goes back to go over the man at midwicket. Rohit comes around from square leg, slides, gets behind it, but it slides. Just doesn't get it clean. And it goes for four. Kohli, who has run in from long-on, is livid. He kicks the ball away

South Africa 62/2   F du Plessis 23* (22b 2x4)   SK Raina 1.2-0-10-0

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

South Africa 72/2   F du Plessis 29* (27b 3x4)   A Mishra 0.3-0-6-0

Raina to du Plessis, FOUR, presses forward, gets under a length ball, and sweeps it over square leg for four

South Africa 81/2   F du Plessis 36* (31b 4x4)   SK Raina 2.3-0-20-0

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

South Africa 94/2   F du Plessis 49* (35b 5x4 1x6)   A Mishra 1.1-0-12-0

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   JP Duminy 21* (22b 1x4 1x6)   A Mishra 2-0-25-0

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

South Africa 124/3   AB de Villiers 9* (5b 1x4)   A Mishra 2.4-0-33-0

Kumar to Miller, FOUR, what a shot. Top shot this. Low full toss, nearly a yorker, he can't get under it, but he drives this hard and beats the diving extra cover by inches

South Africa 157/4   DA Miller 9* (6b 1x4)   B Kumar 3.5-0-32-1

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

South Africa 170/4   DA Miller 21* (11b 2x4 1x6)   MM Sharma 2.5-0-32-0
