TOTAL156.3 Ov (RR: 3.84)601/5d
Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Rohit Sharma, 9.6 ov), 2-163 (Cheteshwar Pujara, 50.6 ov), 3-198 (Mayank Agarwal, 60.6 ov), 4-376 (Ajinkya Rahane, 117.2 ov), 5-601 (Ravindra Jadeja, 156.3 ov)
9.6 to RG Sharma, corker of a ball gets the breakthrough. Banged it in on a hard length again, but this time the line was perfect, on middle and off stump. Moved away too, or rather straightened after pitching, and it was too close to the batsman for Rohit to not play at it, ends up getting an outside edge with the ball going past his midriff. De Kock does the rest.. 25/1
50.6 to CA Pujara, Rabada strikes again, out of nowhere. Length ball outside off, Pujara hangs his bat out, the ball moves just a little bit maybe to take the outside edge, goes low to du Plessis' left at first slip, around shin height, but he does well to pouch it with both hands. 163/2
60.6 to MA Agarwal, and that's a third for Rabada Why did Faf wait so long to bring back after lunch? He's held on to another good catch in the slips though. Rabada's got the in-form batsman. Kicked off a length and Agarwal was looking push it but ends up getting an edge that du Plessis holds on to while tumbling across to his left. 198/3
117.2 to AM Rahane, that's Maharaj's 100th wicket! Floating delivery outside off, and spinning slightly away. Rahane comes forward to defend, but it takes a feather-touch off his glove bat and the keeper holds on. Umpire Llong raised his finger pretty late, but his decision was made easy by Rahane's decision to walk. 376/4
156.3 to RA Jadeja, caught at long-off down the track and he splices this in the air, goes towards long-off rather than straight, and de Bruyn takes a comfortable catch having taken a few steps forward. No century for Jadeja. 601/5

TOTAL105.4 Ov (RR: 2.60)275
Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Aiden Markram, 1.2 ov), 2-13 (Dean Elgar, 3.5 ov), 3-33 (Temba Bavuma, 9.1 ov), 4-41 (Anrich Nortje, 17.2 ov), 5-53 (Theunis de Bruyn, 20.6 ov), 6-128 (Quinton de Kock, 37.6 ov), 7-139 (Senuran Muthusamy, 44.2 ov), 8-162 (Faf du Plessis, 58.3 ov), 9-271 (Keshav Maharaj, 101.4 ov), 10-275 (Kagiso Rabada, 105.4 ov)
1.2 to AK Markram, plumb in front Umesh strikes second ball on his comeback with a wicked inswinger. Markram played completely down the wrong line, all around it, as Umesh gets it to bend back in and rap him on the pads. Looked out in real-time and the umpire doesn't take long to raise the finger. Markram walks off without reviewing. 2/1
3.5 to D Elgar, He's played on! Elgar ended up in all kinds of a tangle on whether to play or leave it. Great lines from Umesh, drawing the indecision. In the channel and he's already shown he can move this new ball both ways. Elgar thinks he ought to play it, then decides against it, but is too late to withdraw his bat. The ball straightens a touch, takes the inside edge, drops on boot and clatters onto stumps. 13/2
20.6 to TB de Bruyn, WHAT.A.CATCH from Saha! He flies to his right and grabs it with both hands right in front of first slip. Umesh hits that in-between length and gets it to straighten away. A crease-bound de Bruyn aims to punch through the covers - he has played this shot well until now - but winds up stabbing at the ball and nicks it off. Over to you, Saha. 53/5
44.2 to S Muthusamy, big turn for Jadeja, and umpire Llong gives it out lbw rather belatedly. Muthusamy chats to his captain and reviews the on-field out decision. Good length, pitches outside off and breaks back in sharply, Muthusamy offers no shot and simply pads up to it. Threatening off stump, and yes the tracker suggests it would have clattered into off stump. Impact was outside off, but Muthusamy wasn't offering a shot here. SA continue to collapse around Faf. 139/7
9.1 to T Bavuma, huge appeal for caught behind and not given. Kohli has opted to review. Back of a length, moving away a touch in the channel, gets him to follow the ball with his hands. The ball climbing as it passed him possibly drew him into following it, couldn't adjust quickly enough to drop his hands. And DRS shows a spike as the ball passes bat so Shami has struck first ball! And an excellent first ball it was too, rearing up from a length all the way to the keeper. Saha was appealing vociferously immediately.. 33/3
17.2 to A Nortje, Shami has bounced out the nightwatchman! Short and kicks up outside off, Nortje is caught in a tangle. He hops and fends at it as opposed to avoiding it, and offers a catch to fourth slip. Kohli dives low to his right and grabs it with both hands. 41/4
37.6 to Q de Kock, beauty from Ashwin That's knocked over the stumps. De Kock is hanging around, thinking Saha's gloves knocked the bails off, but it was all Ashwin's doing. Tossed up, making him thinking about planting the front foot again perhaps, dips beautifully on him, and de Kock is caught on the crease, feet not moving. Pitches on middle and leg, and spins past a limply hanging bat to knock off the bails. Brilliant.. 128/6
58.3 to F du Plessis, Ashwin finds the outside edge this time, and Rahane snaps up the catch at slip. This one goes straight just outside off - as opposed to breaking in - Faf jabs at it and nicks it off. 162/8
101.4 to KA Maharaj, caught at leg slip A superb innings by Maharaj but Ashwin ends it. Gets some drift on this and it is on leg stump, Maharaj is looking to flick it away, gets a thin edge onto pad and straight to Rohit Sharma. The Indians are jubilant, but this has been a fantastic knock by Maharaj, with a sore shoulder too.. 271/9
105.4 to K Rabada, given out lbw but Rabada is reviewing. That's only because they have a review left. It looked pretty plumb. And DRS confirms that's three reds, so that will end South Africa's innings. Nice loop from around the wicket, pitches on middle and leg and goes almost straight on. He's playing down the wrong line to defend, expecting it to turn, but it hits his pad. Would have crashed into leg stump.. 275/10

TOTAL67.2 Ov (RR: 2.80)189
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Aiden Markram, 0.2 ov), 2-21 (Theunis de Bruyn, 5.4 ov), 3-70 (Faf du Plessis, 23.3 ov), 4-71 (Dean Elgar, 25.2 ov), 5-79 (Quinton de Kock, 28.2 ov), 6-125 (Temba Bavuma, 43.2 ov), 7-129 (Senuran Muthusamy, 44.5 ov), 8-185 (Vernon Philander, 66.1 ov), 9-189 (Kagiso Rabada, 66.6 ov), 10-189 (Keshav Maharaj, 67.2 ov)
0.2 to AK Markram, Markram has a pair. What a start for India and Ishant. Markram is out almost the same way he was in the first innings, but to a different bowler. This one bent in sharply once again, but Ishant bowled it more full and straight than the first ball and Markram is struck on the pads. Was it going down? The umpire raises his finger after a loud appeal. They think about reviewing, but I suspect that would have been umpire's call on review.. 0/1
5.4 to TB de Bruyn, superman take from Saha flying to his left. De Bruyn will be filthy with himself. Umesh had strayed down leg and he tried to glance him fine. You just don't do that when it's Wriddhiman Saha behind the stumps. He has flown - there is no other word to accurately describe it - yards to his left and plucked that ball out. Whew.. 21/2
66.1 to VD Philander, incredibly that line down legside works for Umesh. Second time in this innings. He was not getting his lines right in the past over, and he continues this over by starting with one down leg. Philander wants to tickle it fine but gets a faint edge. Saha is moving across to his left well and pouches it easily.. 185/8
66.6 to K Rabada, smart take by Rohit at second slip In the corridor from wide of the crease and perhaps straightens a touch. Rabada was caught in two minds, went to poke at it, wanted to then pull his bat away but was far too late to do that and it ended up just hanging there as the ball kissed the edge and travelled to Rohit, who took it low in front of him. 189/9
44.5 to S Muthusamy, Fended to second slip! This is a snorter from Shami. Back of a length, angling in from round the stumps, then kicks away outside off. Not too dissimilar from the Nortje dismissal - except Muthusamy is a left-hander. You can't do anything but fend at it, hoping it doesn't carry. This, however, flies through to Rohit. India three away from securing the series. 129/7
23.3 to F du Plessis, Whoa! Has Saha pouched it on the rebound? Faf has been given out caught behind. Ashwin tosses an offbreak, gets it to turn in, Faf inches forward, prods at it and inside-edges it onto the pad. It dies on Saha. One. Two. Three... Saha plunges forward and takes it on the fourth attempt inches from the ground.. 70/3
25.2 to D Elgar, Ooops, what was that, Elgar? It worked for him in Vizag, here he holes out to mid-off running back. Umesh just about clings onto the catch on the third attempt. Ashwin loops it up on off, dips and turns. Elgar isn't quite close enough to the pitch and winds up slicing the ball as opposed to lofting it. He was aiming to hit it over mid-on, but Umesh grabs it on the rebound from mid-off. Sixth in the game for Ashwin. 71/4
28.2 to Q de Kock, goes for the big slog-sweep and stumps rattled. Some sharp turn from outside off on a length. Quinton wanted to bash it into oblivion. There is no deep midwicket so he thought the shot is on. But he connected only with air, while the ball connects with the stumps.. 79/5
43.2 to T Bavuma, Rahane pulls off a stunner at slip forget that review off the previous ball, Bavuma's gone now. Tossed up and Bavuma is drawn into the drive, but it drifts and turns, clips his outside edge and goes very fine. Excellent reflexes by Rahane who sticks out his left hand near shoulder height and then the right hand closes around the ball too to ensure it doesn't pop out anywhere - all while diving to his left.. 125/6
67.2 to KA Maharaj, given lbw but Maharaj has reviewed. Pitched it slightly shorter of a length and went with the arm but was it going down leg? No edge. And it's three reds on DRS so India have won by an innings and 137 runs and sealed the series. Struck in front of middle and leg, and going on to hit the stumps.. 189/10
