5pm: Familiar story for India as they concede yet another 300-plus score. India failed to drive the advantage after having SA at an unfamiliar 28 for 3 in 8 overs. De Kock and AB scored centuries and now the Indian batsmen once again will have to try and clean up the mess. They haven't been able to do so so far. Ishant was the surprise package with a four-wicket haul.

The comforting thought for India is that Steyn and Morkel are not playing so this is their best chance yet. Join us at 5.45 for the chase.

And here's a dubious stat the Indian bowlers should not read. This is the tenth instance of conceding a score of 300 or more in ODIs in a calendar year, a world record. They eclipsed their own record of 9 in 2009.

Mark Kidger: "Given the rate at which South Africa were scoring in mid-innings, 301 is a disappointing total. India know that they could have been facing 350."
