4.3 Caught at short square leg but they're checking for a no-ball for height! And Amla has to go. It was a full toss close to the waist, Amla looked to flick it away and he found Yuvraj who cupped it easily, the side angle showed the ball to be within the limit so it was a legal delivery 22/1
    37.6 makes room to swing and he misses! Ishant bowls an off cutter on the stumps, de Kock exposes all three and swings, the ball clips the top of the leg stump, the stumps are erect and the bails go flying 199/4
    7.1 And Ishant has struck! Davids fails to make use of this opportunity, he comes forward to a length ball outside off, looks to defend but gets an outside edge to second slip, Raina does well to move to his left and take it on the fall 28/2
    7.4 two for the over and Ishant really does look a different bowler here! Duminy was squared up the previous ball and this time he was on the back foot to defend, didn't cover the line properly at all and the ball moved away and took the outside edge to second slip, Raina in business again and he times his dive forward well, takes it inches off the turf 28/3
    43.4 some relief for India here, AB shuffles a long way across his stumps to flick it away, Yadav bowls it fuller and the ball clips the pads, you could see the leg stump so a fairly easy decision for the umpire 252/5
    not out
    46.2 picks deep midwicket and Ishant takes his 100th ODI wicket! Slower ball and McLaren makes room and swings, Yadav runs forward and takes it well in front of the rope 269/6
    49.1 the short one gets Parnell! Rising towards the face and he takes evasive action and yet goes ahead with the pull, miscues it and Rohit takes it easily at deep square leg 291/7
    49.4 chopped it onto his stumps, Shami bowls it short, Philander makes room to swing, inside edge lands on top of the middle stump, stumps are upright and the bails go for a toss 298/8
    not out
