TOTAL17.2 Ov (RR: 5.30, 97 Mins)92
Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Shikhar Dhawan, 3.6 ov), 2-30 (Virat Kohli, 4.2 ov), 3-43 (Rohit Sharma, 7.5 ov), 4-45 (Ambati Rayudu, 8.3 ov), 5-67 (MS Dhoni, 11.4 ov), 6-69 (Suresh Raina, 12.3 ov), 7-69 (Harbhajan Singh, 12.4 ov), 8-85 (Axar Patel, 15.4 ov), 9-85 (Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 15.6 ov), 10-92 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 17.2 ov)
12.3 to SK Raina, another googly, not quite driving length, and Raina goes for the drive, plays a little early, and pops a simple, waist-high catch to Amla at cover. 69/6
12.4 to Harbhajan Singh, and back he goes, first ball! Another googly from Tahir, slow and enticingly loopy outside off. Harbhajan plays a drive away from his body and the ball sneaks into the gap and pegs back middle stump. 69/7
8.3 to AT Rayudu, oh my. That's a full-toss, and Rayudu swings across the line, loses his shape, and loses his leg stump. Not the greatest delivery Rabada has bowled in his life, and definitely not the greatest shot Rayudu has played in his life. 45/4
3.6 to S Dhawan, full and straight, and it hits Dhawan on the pad as he looks to whip it across the line. Umpire raised his finger as soon as Morris turned around to appeal. We'll have to see where that pitched and where it was headed. Looked out at first glance, looked like it straightened a touch. Pitched on leg and middle, straightened a touch. Enough to hit off stump?. 28/1
17.2 to R Ashwin, all over. Ashwin made room to carve over the covers, and Morris bowled a straight length ball. It slipped past his angled bat and hit top of middle. 92/10
11.4 to MS Dhoni, gone! That was wide, not too short, and he went for the big slash outside off. Thick edge, went low to AB, who took it falling forward. Dhoni started walking off immediately, but they're checking if he caught it cleanly. He has, yes.. 67/5
15.4 to AR Patel, another! It's a length ball on middle stump, and Axar is a little too early into his flick, hits it in the air, and the man at midwicket takes a fairly simple catch, falling to his left. 85/8
15.6 to B Kumar, gone, nine down! Full and straight, not quite full enough for the drive through extra cover, and the ball maybe came in a touch to find the gap between bat and pad and crash into the stumps. 85/9

TOTAL17.1 Ov (RR: 5.59, 116 Mins)96/4
Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Hashim Amla, 1.6 ov), 2-38 (Faf du Plessis, 5.5 ov), 3-49 (AB de Villiers, 7.6 ov), 4-76 (Farhaan Behardien, 14.3 ov)
1.6 to HM Amla, got him! Fired that at the pads and Amla went for the flick. Didn't middle it, and it popped up in the direction of leg slip, where Rohit grabbed it after a juggle. 13/1
5.5 to F du Plessis, gone! Comes down the track again, sees a bit of flight. Looks to hit over the bowler again but doesn't quite time it - change of angle forced him to open his bat face - and Mohit, running backwards and to his right from mid-off, takes a superbly judged catch. 38/2
7.6 to AB de Villiers, bowled him! That was beautifully done by Ashwin. Once again, bowls de Villiers with a change of pace. Was much slower than his previous deliveries, and de Villiers had to reach out to drive that. Didn't turn as much as he expected, and it beat his outside edge and hit top of off. 49/3
14.3 to F Behardien, length ball, slides on with the angle and utterly beats Behardien, who's stuck on the crease, expecting turn. In the end, he has no time to respond, and the ball strikes his front pad plumb in front. No hesitation from the umpire there. 76/4
