5pm: Familiar story for India as they concede yet another 300-plus score. India failed to drive the advantage after having SA at an unfamiliar 28 for 3 in 8 overs. De Kock and AB scored centuries and now the Indian batsmen once again will have to try and clean up the mess. They haven't been able to do so so far. Ishant was the surprise package with a four-wicket haul.

The comforting thought for India is that Steyn and Morkel are not playing so this is their best chance yet. Join us at 5.45 for the chase.

And here's a dubious stat the Indian bowlers should not read. This is the tenth instance of conceding a score of 300 or more in ODIs in a calendar year, a world record. They eclipsed their own record of 9 in 2009.

Mark Kidger: "Given the rate at which South Africa were scoring in mid-innings, 301 is a disappointing total. India know that they could have been facing 350."

Shami to Miller, 2 runs

round the wicket and Miller makes room and drills it down to long-off and they take 2, SA have passed 300

Shami to Tsotsobe, 1 run

that was well played, short ball expectedly, Tsotsobe rode the bounce and spooned it over the keeper, Ishant was fine at third man

Shami to Philander, OUT

chopped it onto his stumps, Shami bowls it short, Philander makes room to swing, inside edge lands on top of the middle stump, stumps are upright and the bails go for a toss

Vernon Philander b Mohammed Shami 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0
Shami to Miller, 1 run

full on the pads and flicked away to deep square leg

Shami to Miller, SIX runs

at first it looked like he miscued it but it traveled alright! Makes room to a length ball and swings over deep midwicket, went up miles in the air and still had enough to clear the rope, a welcome fifty for Miller

Can SA get 300?

Shami to Parnell, OUT

the short one gets Parnell! Rising towards the face and he takes evasive action and yet goes ahead with the pull, miscues it and Rohit takes it easily at deep square leg

Yadav to Miller, SIX runs

another low full toss put away! Wide outside off, Miller takes him down town, through the line and a flat six over wide long-off

Yadav to Parnell, 1 run

full outside off and driven down to sweeper cover

Yadav to Miller, 1 run

fires that full outside off and Miller slams it along the turf to deep cover and Ishant does well to slide and cut it off, could easily have over-run it

Yadav to Miller, no run

good over so far, keeps it full and close to the yorker length, can only jam it out for no runs

Yadav to Parnell, 1 run

drifts on the pads and he flicks it away in the air down to long-on

Yadav to Parnell, no run

stays back and flicks it away straight to midwicket
