TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 10.15, 96 Mins)203/5
Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Rohit Sharma, 1.5 ov), 2-49 (Suresh Raina, 3.6 ov), 3-108 (Virat Kohli, 9.3 ov), 4-155 (Shikhar Dhawan, 14.4 ov), 5-183 (MS Dhoni, 18.1 ov)
1.5 to RG Sharma, short on middle and leg, Rohit backs away, looking to cut the ball over third man. The ball goes through to the keeper, Klaasen goes up in appeal. And he is so confident that they call for the review. Big noise as bat passes ball, there is a spike on Snicko, so South Africa have their first. Junior Dala has his first international wicket!. 23/1
3.6 to SK Raina, 147 kph, Dala takes his second. Raina's belligerent innings ends. A full delivery, around middle and leg, Raina clears his front leg, looking to hoick away into the leg side, but the ball takes the leading edge and lobs back to the bowler. An easy catch, Dala is pumped.. 49/2
18.1 to MS Dhoni, bowled him. Morris foxes Dhoni. He walks across the stumps expecting a wide yorker again. But this is speared in at leg stump and Dhoni can't get bat on it. 183/5
9.3 to V Kohli, and given! Shamsi is absolutely thrilled, but Kohli reviews! Kohli is quite confident. Flat outside off, the ball pitches and spins back in, beats Kohli on the inside edge and hits him in front of middle and leg. Hit him on the back pad. Three reds on HawkEye, so the decision stays. And he finds consolation for the drop in the previous over. Some respite for SA.. 108/3
14.4 to S Dhawan, scoops it to the keeper. Dhawan shuffles either side of the stumps before getting on his knee to try and scoop one fine. It's a slower ball that greets him though and the shot ends up being a lob towards the keeper who dives in front and gets his gloves underneath this. Superb innings ends softly. 155/4

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.75, 97 Mins)175/9
Fall of wickets: 1-29 (JJ Smuts, 2.5 ov), 2-38 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 4.6 ov), 3-48 (David Miller, 6.2 ov), 4-129 (Farhaan Behardien, 14.6 ov), 5-154 (Reeza Hendricks, 17.1 ov), 6-158 (Heinrich Klaasen, 17.4 ov), 7-158 (Chris Morris, 17.5 ov), 8-159 (Dane Paterson, 17.6 ov), 9-175 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 19.4 ov)
2.5 to JT Smuts, taken by Dhawan. Smuts undone by Bhuvneshwar's slower ball. The knuckle ball. It's full on middle and off, Smuts sees an opportunity to flick the ball over midwicket, but the ball stops on him slightly. It takes the leading edge and lobs towards Dhawan at square leg, a reverse-cupped catch.. 29/1
4.6 to JP Duminy, Raina takes the catch, running back. A really good catch. Another slower ball around middle and leg, Duminy is through his swat too early, the ball gets more elevation than distance. Raina runs back from midwicket, keeps his eyes on the ball and takes a good catch in front of him, running towards the stands. Bhuvneshwar's third over works well for India, was that the best game awareness from their captain?. 38/2
17.1 to RR Hendricks, top edge is gobbled up by Dhoni. Bhuvneshwar goes with the legcutter first up, on a good length wide outside off. He goes across the line and it deviates away from him enough. Top innings from Hendricks that has kept South Africa alive, but is this the match for India?. 154/5
17.4 to H Klaasen, shuffles this time and cuts out the room for himself. Bhuvneshwar has bowled an overpitched ball that's there for the big hit, but Klaasen's weight is falling into the off side as he tries to clear long-on. Ends up hitting it straight to Suresh Raina who gets on one knee to take it with a reverse-cup. Career-best figures for the bowler.. 158/6
17.5 to CH Morris, holes out to long-on! Morris gone, it's a five-for for Bhuvneshwar and he's on a hat-trick too. Talk about ending the match in one over. It's a slower ball at a length on off stump. He looks to clear long-on too but miscues the shot. Raina has to run in this time and he catches with his fingertips. 158/7
19.4 to AL Phehlukwayo, slower ball at a length outside off. Steps out to try and clear long-off. Ends up slicing it into the covers and Chahal takes. 175/9
6.2 to DA Miller, the slower ball does for Miller. Is that the game? Completely deceives Miller, full and wide outside off, Miller is through his shot, the ball lobs up towards mid-on. Dhawan runs back and takes the reverse-cupped catch. 48/3
14.6 to F Behardien, taken at long-on. He's done by the slowness. Seems to have gotten to the pitch of this full ball at middle stump. Looks good as the bat comes on it too, but he's ended up losing his shape at the last moment and got it off the toe-end. Pandey takes neatly to his right. 129/4
