Dale Steyn1015515.50366200
45.6 to AM Rahane, got him. Walked across and looked to club it away to the leg side. It was a touch too full, maybe, and it came in off the seam and hit him on the back thigh. Given immediately, and Rahane didn't review. 278/5
Vernon Philander411904.75153000
Jean-Paul Duminy703905.57173010
Morne Morkel1005925.90296100
44.5 to SK Raina, and now he takes one. Far simpler catch. Morkel banged it in again and Raina cleared his front leg and pulled it in the air once more, this time it's straight at the fielder, at chest height. 269/4
48.5 to MS Dhoni, got him! Morkel bangs it in halfway and Dhoni shuffles across to hook, only manages a top-edge through to the keeper. 302/7
Imran Tahir1004814.80262110
27.1 to V Kohli, Tahir strikes with a long-hop! Kohli rocks back to pull, hits it straight to Faf at short midwicket, at chest height. He was sent spinning by the power of the shot, but clung on safely enough. 136/2
Wayne Parnell908519.442111142
43.4 to S Dhawan, got him. That was banged in short, and he had to fetch the pull from over his left shoulder. Hit high on the bat and looped up and down into the hands of the fielder at long leg. End of a superb innings from Dhawan, he's really turned his form around here.. 261/3

Umesh Yadav603405.66204010
Mohammed Shami813023.75302020
3.3 to Q de Kock, gone! That's the first time de Kock hasn't scored a century against India. It's a bit fuller but nowhere near full enough to drive. Goes hard at it and scoops a low catch to Kohli, tumbling forward from mid-off. 12/1
36.2 to DW Steyn, short on off stump, tried to make room to cut, can only pop it straight into the hands of cover point. 158/8
Mohit Sharma703124.42253020
10.2 to HM Amla, gone! The short ball's done the trick. Again it was outside off, not the easiest line to pull from. Amla top-edged it and Shami took it brilliantly at long leg, over his head with both hands, moving backwards but ensuring he stopped well short of the rope. 40/2
28.1 to F du Plessis, got him! Came down the track and looked to flat-bat it down the ground. Wasn't the right ball for it, it was shorter than ideal, and it hit high on his bat and popped straight into mid-off's hands. 133/4
Ravindra Jadeja8.203714.44222010
40.2 to Imran Tahir, and that is that. Round-arm, angled in, goes with the arm and hits him on the front pad, halfway forward to defend, and it's lbw even before he appealed. 177/10
Ravichandran Ashwin1004134.10344000
31.3 to JP Duminy, and that is that for JP. Goes for the reverse sweep, and it goes with the angle again, hits his glove, and pops up to present the slip fielder an absolute dolly. 147/5
33.6 to VD Philander, loud, sustained lbw appeal, given. Goes on the back foot and it turns in sharply and hits him on the back pad. Not sure if it hit in line. He's reviewed. No inside-edge on it, Snicko confirms. Hit the back pad on the knee roll, just in line with off stump, and then hits the top of middle stump according to Hawkeye. Two umpire's calls, and that means he's a goner. 153/7
37.2 to M Morkel, a bit of air now, angling in towards middle and leg, and he clears his front leg to slog-sweep, misses it completely and it straightens to clatter into the stumps. 161/9
