    9.4 gives him caught behind but Amla immediately opts for a review! Bhuvneshwar's retribution is in the form of a back of a length delivery that cuts into the right-hander, who is in an awful position. He is set up to flay it through the off side, the movement makes him change his shot and try to punch through mid-on. That leads to gap between bat and pad, and replays indicate there is quite a big edge through to the keeper 39/1
    12.6 falls to a long hop! Pull shot goes off the bottom of the bat and settles in Pandya's hands at deep midwicket. De Kock continues to have a terrible 2018. In better form, he would have pulled it into Jupiter's orbit. But at present, he can't help but give his wicket away. 51/2
    13.1 caught off a short ball again! South Africa would have known wristspin would be a menace on this slow pitch. But never would they have imaged two batsmen slogging a half-trackier straight to deep midwicket. 51/3
    28.2 lbw in front of middle! Duminy goes for the sweep, hitting across the line, for at best a run or two. The ball dips on him ever so wonderfully, it also drifts in such a way that it starts on leg stump, but pitches on middle. Would have straightened to topple it too. Duminy wants a review but South Africa have none left. 107/6
    13.5 another one falls, at least this is to a good ball! It's tossed up. Goes above the eyeline, drawing Miller forward with the drive. That's when the ball dips, turns, hitchhikes off the outside edge straight to Rahane at slip. 51/4
    26.3 top edge and he's gone. Pandya is the one running back from short midwicket, he doesn't quite take it on the first grab, but recovers well. This is the Chahal special. Slowing it down. Tossing it up. Lining it wide outside off and daring the batsman to swing across the line. Zondo feels the pressure of a limp run-rate and goes for a slog sweep. Doesn't pay off. 99/5
    32.2 that's South Africa's lowest ODI total at home and Chahal is the wrecker in chief with his maiden ODI five-for. The turn he gets on the leg break makes Morris skew his lofted shot to deep cover 118/10
    29.3 doesn't pick the wrong 'un and with him camped so deep in his crease, the decision is straight forward. Kuldeep does splendidly to land a good length ball outside off - it comes out all slow and unthreatening, but the moment it grips into the pitch, it tears into the left-hander. 110/7
    30.3 might be the textbook definition of a plumb lbw, but the way Morkel is walking off it looks like he's had a hundred stolen from him. A wrong 'un, pitching on middle, the tailender doesn't pick it and plays against the turn. It straightens off the pitch, sneaks under the bat, and mercilessly traps him 117/8
    31.5 knocks the off stump over. Tahir's plans of staying away from the ball at high pace would always have led to this. It was simply a matter of time for Bumrah to get his radar right. 118/9
