ICC World Twenty20 - 5th match, Group C

India v South Africa

India won by 14 runs

Toss: Graeme Smith has chosen to field.

Graeme: "It's early morning game, there might be little bit of swing. We have been here for some time. We are quite relaxed. Whatever we have to chase, we have the batters to do it. Langevelt, Gibbs and Theron are not playing today."

Dhoni: I would have chosen to bowl. We have a feel of ground and wicket from our game yesterday. Gautam Gambhir has a bout of diarrhea and Dinesh Karthik comes in. Piyush Chawla for Zaheer Khan."

0.1

0.1

Kleinveldt to Karthik, 3 runs, almost run out but they get quite a few overthrows in the end. It was pushed to left of backward point .. Karthk set off for the single and Vijay responded but hello Karthik suddenly panics and turns back. Drama. AB with the sliding dive and he doesn't realise the situation. Both men almost at the same end but he has a shy at the striker's end. Mistake. And overthrows as well.

0.2

Kleinveldt to Vijay, OUT, It kicked up short of length outside off stump and straightened a touch. VIjay stabs out at it, bat away from the body, and the ball catches the edge. So after all that drama in the previous delivery, SA have picked up a wicket this time around.
