Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Rohit Sharma, 1.4 ov), 2-59 (Shikhar Dhawan, 12.3 ov), 3-82 (Virat Kohli, 17.6 ov), 4-102 (Ajinkya Rahane, 22.4 ov), 5-104 (Suresh Raina, 23.4 ov), 6-124 (Axar Patel, 29.3 ov), 7-165 (Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 39.3 ov), 8-221 (Harbhajan Singh, 46.3 ov), 9-225 (Umesh Yadav, 46.6 ov)
29.3 to AR Patel, loud appeal for lbw and Steyn pumps his fists as the finger goes up! Slightly back of length ball on leg stump, it was headed towards the leg stump as Axar tried to clip it to leg but was trapped on the back foot. Looks like it pitched right on the leg stump line, not outside, and Aleem Dar was the umpire not Kulkarni if you were wondering. Axar was a bit on his toes and the ball hit him just above the knee roll. 124/6
46.3 to Harbhajan Singh, short and extremely sweet from Harbhajan. Good cameo that, but Dhoni will have to farm the strike now. Full outside off, harbhajan swipes at that and gets a thick outside edge which flies to de Kock who clings onto a sharp chance to his right.. 221/8
46.6 to UT Yadav, 139 ks, and what a catch from de Kock. Only reflex. Yadav chooses a decent shot but doesn't execute well enough in a game of fine margins. Back of a length and Yadav looks to steer the ball to third man with the pace. But the ball goes too fine, de Kock dives to his right and takes a stunning catch. Excellently held.. 225/9
1.4 to RG Sharma, cleaned im up. What a strike. What an important strike that is. Too full and Rohit is slightly late on the flick. He is beaten for pace as the ball clips his pads and takes the off stump out. Huge wicket for SA.. 3/1
12.3 to S Dhawan, soft dismissal. Loss in concentration there. Slower offcutter outside off, Dhawan just chips the ball to short cover. JP Duminy is surprised as he takes it. But that was a deceitful change in pace from Morkel. After all that pace, he goes slower and full which results in Dhawan going through the stroke much earlier. 59/2
23.4 to SK Raina, he's caught down the leg side, it was a short ball after all! Raina kept shuffling towards the off side, Morkel kept bowling them short and this time Raina was strangled down the leg side and even got a faint edge and QDK takes a good diving catch. The umpires check for a no ball and it's fine, Raina walks back. 104/5
22.4 to AM Rahane, he's bowled him round the legs! Tahir has taken off and Rahane can't believe it, he's still on the crease and is asking the umpires now. The umpires refer it to the third umpire. Rahane was sweeping the ball which pitched outside leg, but he misses and the ball turned just enough to clip the leg stump. 102/4
39.3 to B Kumar, and he has got him this time. Just a little slower through the air and Kumar looks to drive through long-off anticipating some legspin but this one doesn't spin. There is however, a huge gap between bat and pad and the delivery sneaks through and clips leg stump.. 165/7

TOTAL43.4 Ov (RR: 5.15, 178 Mins)225
Fall of wickets: 1-40 (Hashim Amla, 6.4 ov), 2-52 (Quinton de Kock, 9.3 ov), 3-134 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 23.6 ov), 4-141 (Faf du Plessis, 25.6 ov), 5-142 (David Miller, 26.2 ov), 6-167 (AB de Villiers, 32.1 ov), 7-186 (Dale Steyn, 36.1 ov), 8-200 (Farhaan Behardien, 39.3 ov), 9-221 (Imran Tahir, 43.2 ov), 10-225 (Morne Morkel, 43.4 ov)
26.2 to DA Miller, and Miller is gone! First delivery. Miller has to walk back. Another big wicket for India. Miller fishes at that and gets an edge through to Dhoni. First-ball duck. Excellent lines from Bhuvneshwar. Dhoni takes a good diving catch too. SA in trouble now.. 142/5
43.2 to Imran Tahir, outside edge this time, there was a sound and this time it goes to Dhoni, he leaps and throws the ball high! It wasn't too wide outside off, Tahir pushed at it without moving his feet and got a faint edge. 221/9
43.4 to M Morkel, edged again, taken with both hands by Raina at slip, India have won, Indore erupts! There was some room outside off and MM wanted to force it through the off side. He got a thick edge and Raina caught it over his head at slip. 225/10
36.1 to DW Steyn, gone, first ball. Poor shot from Steyn. Splice-jarring length from Yadav and Steyn looks to play that over cover, not the ball to play that shot to. It hits high on the bat and lobs up to Kohli at cover who takes a good running catch this time.. 186/7
9.3 to Q de Kock, makes room and picks the fielder at long-off, Indore erupts! It was pitched up just outside off with some flight, he went towards leg and lofted it high and straight to Mohit for a simple catch which he had to come forward for. 52/2
39.3 to F Behardien, appeal for caught behind mainly from Dhoni, Vineet Kulkarni has given it after some time! Harbhajan did not appeal that hard after turning it down leg, not sure what the ball clipped on the way but Dhoni appealed and got the reward. no pad for sure. Replays and snicko show there was no bat either!. 200/8
6.4 to HM Amla, he tries to whack him over the in field again and he's gone! The ball didn't come in with the angle after pitching outside off, Amla danced down and heaved but the ball turned a wee bit away and beat him completely. Dhoni takes the bails off so quickly in slow motion too. 40/1
23.6 to JP Duminy, got im this time. Duminy gets down early and looks to hard sweep this but he misses and is struck on the pads. But was that outside the line? Not sure. Maybe not. Umpire Vineet Kulkarni is quick to raise his finger though. Struck him in front that. Good decision. 134/3
25.6 to F du Plessis, this one goes straight to Kohli at cover. Great catch. Faf wanted to go over that man at cover but doesn't get under it enough. He hits it uppishly where Kohli jumps and holds onto a good catch. Massive wicket of the anchor. 141/4
32.1 to AB de Villiers, they have got the big man out. AB goes. Not a great shot, to be honest. Hits the ball in the air but too close to Kohli at cover. What a big wicket that is. Fuller length outside off, AB stays back and flat-bats the drive and Kohli dives low to his left and takes a good tumbling catch. Match-changing stuff from Virat.. 167/6
