Bhuvneshwar Kumar1017117.10258110
49.2 to F du Plessis, holes out to long-off. High-ish full toss outside off. Looks to clobber it over extra cover again but that's tough to control when he has to reach out so much. Pandya settles under it and completes the catch. World class innings from Faf. 264/7
Jasprit Bumrah1005615.60316110
7.3 to HM Amla, given lbw! Amla has missed one that's angled in. Full ball, angled in at off stump. Oh hang on, this could be a no-ball...nope, he gets the benefit of doubt. Very very close from Bumrah. Unlike the lbw decision, he's plumb there. Beaten by pace more than anything, late on the attempted drive. 30/1
Hardik Pandya704105.85215001
Yuzvendra Chahal1004524.50312100
14.6 to Q de Kock, this looks good for India! Yes, it's given! Chahal pushes one flat at a leg stump line. It's pitching in line too. He looks to flick but he misses. Little doubt in this as it appears. De Kock won't even discuss a review. DRS however shows the ball would be spinning past leg stump. 83/2
20.4 to AK Markram, caught at midwicket! Good work from Pandya, running to his left to intercept a pretty hard-hit flick. Markram would have expected a lot of runs for that shot, having charged down the pitch and picking up the ball on the half-volley. As it turns out, however, he's forced to walk back.. 103/3
Kuldeep Yadav1003433.40330100
25.5 to JP Duminy, doesn't pick the googly and that makes it all the more special for Kuldeep. He pitches the ball a shade short, on and around off stump - step one of the plan. Step two depends on the batsman. If he spots the variation, he would play with a straight bat. Duminy doesn't. He thinks he can cut it away for runs. And the moment, he gets in position for that, he's in danger. Making things worse for him is that the ball skids through fairly low and knocks middle back middle stump. 122/4
27.5 to DA Miller, Kohli claims the catch and now it's over to the umpires. Ian Gould's soft signal is out. Lets see. Replays show conclusively that he's right. Good effort from the Indian captain, diving forward and scooping the ball up just as it dies on him. But the better one was from Kuldeep, in the way he drew Miller forward, forcing him to play away from the body. Beautiful work from the wristspinner, bowling slow and backing himself to beat his opponents in the air. 134/5
40.4 to CH Morris, oh he should be fined half his IPL contract for that shot. Morris has looked completely assured, but he's completely missed this. It's a full toss on off stump, prime for a flogging anywhere in front of the stumps. But he's made a decision early to sweep. He's also through the shot much before the ball arrives. It all looks very ugly in the end, as the ball lands on the crease, spins in and tonks off stump. That looked a bit like someone was learning video game controls. 208/6

Morne Morkel703515.00264110
6.3 to RG Sharma, taken by de Kock. An ugly hoick from Rohit. Length ball at off stump is always going to to rise when it's Morkel bowling. Rohit goes across the line and it sits in the pitch slightly. Enough bounce for him to get a top edge that will land in the gully region. Everyone makes way as the keeper calls loudly and takes an easy one. 33/1

Imran Tahir1005105.10212100
Andile Phehlukwayo804225.25234020
42.4 to AM Rahane, lobs one for long-on. Length ball follows him down leg side. He goes for a pick-up over midwicket, but that gets too big on him. He ends up lifting a simple one for Tahir. A stunning knock from Rahane, if he ever needed one.. 256/3
44.3 to V Kohli, yet another slower bouncer. Yet another hoick under it. This time Rabada comes under it and snaps it up. Unlike Kohli to keep going after that, but Phehlukwayo's persistence has been rewarded. Nevertheless, it's a standing ovation for Kohli for yet another stunning second-innings knock. 262/4
