Dale Steyn1006136.10195010
26.1 to AM Rahane, and the change works - Steyn has got him caught behind! There was some room, Rahane went for the shot without moving his feet much and the ball stayed a tad low to take the bottom edge and QdK took it with both hands, Steyn is pumped after a long time. 139/3
44.5 to SK Raina, back of length, pulled straight to midwicket for an easy catch! A crucial fifty from Raina comes to an end because of Steyn with a shortish ball. 266/4
49.5 to MS Dhoni, makes room for the short ball, flays it down the ground and finds mid off. Excellent over this is from Steyn. 299/7
Kagiso Rabada1005435.40283150
7.5 to S Dhawan, so many catches flying around and now QdK has taken a stunner! Finally Rabada's short ball gets him a wicket - it was on the leg side and Dhawan pulled awkwardly and got the ball to pop up fine on the leg side. QdK took two steps before flying to his right and took it with only one hand!. 35/2
48.2 to V Kohli, that's the end of Kohli, he's caught behind for 138! Shortish ball going down leg and he pulled, got a faint edge and QdK took it easily. 291/5
48.3 to Harbhajan Singh, oh Harbhajan is bowled down the leg side! He wanted to tuck the ball to leg with the angle, and the ball deflected off his pads to the stumps. The umpires are checking for a no ball, and Rabada has overstepped here, nothing behind the line when his heel lands. Oh, hello! He's still been given out. Can't figure out the reason why that's not a no ball and the TV commentators are confused too. 291/6
Chris Morris905516.11246040
4.5 to RG Sharma, flicked uppishly again and this time he's given a catch to midwicket! It was angling in towards the pads, Rohit flicked and found du Plessis, who tumbled to his right for a low catch. 28/1

Bhuvneshwar Kumar1006836.80348141
44.3 to AB de Villiers, he's got the big wicket, AB is caught behind off a short ball after a fighting and valiant century! The bouncer seamed in, AB went for the pull and got an edge for Dhoni to take it low in front of him. AB gets a standing ovation as he waves his bat around. 233/7
46.3 to AM Phangiso, short ball number three gets him another wicket! It was directed towards his body and Phangiso made room to pull, but got an edge high on off to be caught by a running Axar at short third man. 250/8
46.5 to DW Steyn, this was also shortish, Steyn pulled and sent it high on the leg side to be caught by Jinxy the Cat running in from deep backward square leg. Made it look easy. 250/9
Mohit Sharma1004814.80335011
5.1 to HM Amla, pulled to the leg side and straight to midwicket, the crowd has come alive! It was short around off, Amla got into position nicely to pull and Dhawan had to jump just a bit to catch with both hands. 36/1
Harbhajan Singh1005025.00283100
11.3 to Q de Kock, Harbhajan was on the prowl and Jinxy the Cat takes it at second slip! Nicely tossed up outside off, QdK is tempted for the drive and he goes for it too, edging the ball to slips. 67/2
17.6 to DA Miller, oh, that's the other one, it doesn't turn but goes the other way after pitching on off and hit him right in front of middle stump on the front foot. The players appeal, the crowd appeals and Ravi's finger goes up. 88/4
Axar Patel1004014.00343000
14.4 to F du Plessis, big appeal and the finger goes up! Faf barely moved his feet for the length delivery outside off, it turned away sharply as Faf poked his bat and Dhoni went up as soon as he pouched it. Faf shows his displeasure by raising his right arm and says something too. Replays show there was some noise when the ball went past the bat, Snicko also shows there was something. 79/3
Amit Mishra1015515.50294100
31.5 to F Behardien, another appeal - this time for lbw and the finger goes up, this time FB doesn't look happy! FB went for the sweep for the straighter ball that pitched on off, missed the ball and was hit in front of off stump. 144/5
