    7.2 down the track comes Dhawan once more, and that's a nice bit of bowling. Perhaps he gave Shamsi too early a sighter, and he slowed it down and pulled his length back a bit. Dhawan is not as close to the pitch of it as he'd like. He wants to hit it over long-off, but the ball stops and turns and he slices it high in the air, over extra-cover, where Phehlukwayo backtracks, catches it, and holds onto the ball while falling over backwards 63/2
    2.2 got him in the slips! Rohit was stuck on the crease, probably thinking about the ball coming in. Great bowling by Hendricks, who pulls his line a lot straighter. Rohit jabs at it, but it holds its line, going with the angle to fly off the outside edge to a waiting Reeza Hendricks. 22/1
    8.3 gone, Kohli departs, going for the aggressive option again - a clear sign of India looking to add more urgency to their T20 game. It's fairly full, angling into middle and leg, and Kohli whips it high in the air, to the left of deep square leg, and Bavuma, running to his left on the edge of the boundary, does very well to keep his feet inside the rope as he completes his catch, despite his momentum threatening to take him over. Didn't time it as well as he'd have liked, Kohli 68/3
    12.4 gone. That was pretty clever from Fortuin, slanting it across Pant from left-arm round and bowling it wide of off stump, making him reach for the ball. Had the field for it too, with sweeper cover back and long-off quite wide. Wanted to launch that over long-off, but the ball didn't turn as much as he expected and he sliced it wider than intended. Long-off moves to his right and takes a simple catch 90/4
    12.5 got him! Iyer jumps down the pitch, and Fortuin saw him coming. He fired it flat and full down the leg side, and by the time Iyer could bring his bat down and try to flick it, it was already past him and on its way towards Quinton de Kock's gloves. Smart bit of bowling again from Fortuin 92/5
    19.5 now Hardik holes out. Fullish, angling into the stumps, and he can't get enough power on this attempt at a whipped six, ends up picking out long-on 133/9
    14.3 edged, and Hendricks strikes again! He's been getting the ball to seam around and bounce today, and this is a good ball, back of a length in the corridor and straightening away from the left-hander. Looks to guide it towards third man, maybe, and only manages a thin edge to the keeper 98/6

    19.1 length ball angling across to off stump, and Jadeja clears his front leg and looks for the big hoick over the leg side. He sends it high in the air, off the top edge, and Rabada calls for it himself, runs towards where a short midwicket might be, and does well to catch it. That went reeeeeaaaaallly high and gained plenty of speed as it descended 127/7
    19.4 run-out, going for the bye. The perils of last-over batting. Short, down the leg side, and he swings and misses. Hardik calls for the bye, and he responds, but he's a long way out as de Kock passes it to Rabada and the bowler throws down the stumps at his end 133/8
