    26.3 Bodi too goes ,tries to sweep and finds the top edge and the square leg fielder runs backwards to take the catch 136/4
    20.4 he has been caught sweeping once too often against the spin and pays the price ,he finds himself out of the crease by inches and Parthiv does the rest.Bodi has to do an Atlas over here ,if Proteas aspire to win 109/3
    30.1 Pitched on length with a loop,Ontong uses his feet and misses the all and is bowled lock ,stock and barrel 148/5

    49.6 What a finish! It screams towards the blockhole and all Botha can do is to jab it to the left of Kumar who makes a half-stop and ends up palming it towards Kaif, running towards him from short cover. Kaif swoops on the ball, moves towards the stumps and lunges forward to affect the run out. Game over! India A players get all animated after stealing a win by the most slender of all margins. Kaif throws the ball high in the air, Badrinath is near him to congratulate, the rest of the team-mates rush to mob Kaif. The packed house clear their throat. What a game. 289/10
    47.3 Fuller in length and strikes timber .It's tough for Proteas to win from here 270/9
