bouncer outside off, goes for the hook, beaten
6:17pm That is all from us tonight. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. We'll see you in two days for the next match. Good night!
Virat Kohli: The injury was early on in the innings. It was in the glutes while taking a single. Thankfully it wasn't a hamstring. So I went off before I would tear a muscle. It was a really good wicket to bat on. Rohit and Shikhar were outstanding at the top. It was a total team batting performance and in the end Bhuvi showing his experience - all in all it was a good team effort. We were looking to do this in T20s for a long. It was one of our most balanced performances. You have to give credit to South Africa for their slog-overs bowling. We were thinking 220 in the 16th over but when Dhoni got out we had to pull it back. In the end it was a winning score. We wanna make the most of the time we have left here. It's an opportunity to play for your country every time and we have fresh faces who are looking for those opportunities at all times so there's a new motivation every time.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: It's amazing to get five in a T20. I just wanted to bowl in the good areas and it's a result of that. Seeing how they were bowling and how the wicket was, we planned our bowling and it worked for us. I enjoy bowling in the tough situations (at the start and end of the innings). The knuckle ball (with the seam up) is something I've been working on for almost a year. Nowadays you need to figure out new ways to get wickets.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the Man of the Match.
JP Duminy: Very disappointed. I think in terms of the first six overs with the fall we're always looking to take some wickets. And they're going to get boundaries. I was happy in fact. But we couldn't get any partnerships in. Pretty happy with our plans but we didn't get the lines right. I thought we could get over the line chasing this target but we didn't put the partnerships together. Very happy with the new guys. You can't fault them, it's up to us experienced batsmen.

Chinmay Jariwal: "Considering the nature of pitch, Bhuvi should be named man of the match."
Balashankar: "Bhuvi is like the new age Dravid. Go out there, do what the team needs, nothing else matters. No big smiles, no big celebrations. "
Sada: "Dhawan gloved and SA didn't hear or appeal, could have been the difference :)"
5:57pm India go 1-0 ahead. South Africa were only in this game for brief periods. They pulled India back at the end with their bowling, and they won a period in the middle with their batting. But India had too much firepower to allow them to run away with this. Shikhar Dhawan to start, Bhuvneshwar Kumar to end. Another collapse added to the hosts' unenviable list. Bumrah and Unadkat hit good lengths to contain South Africa's attack and Bhuvneshwar put an end to all nerves with three wickets in the 18th over to go with a run out. Career-best figures for him today. Stick around for the presentation.
WATCH - Morris out first ball (Available only to viewers in the Indian subcontinent)
slower ball, good length and outside off. Swings across the line and misses
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
slower ball dug short at middle stump. Pulled firmly to deep square's right where Bhuvneshwar puts in a slide to stop it and relays to Pandya at deep midwicket
WATCH - Klaasen holes out at long-on (Available only to viewers in the Indian subcontinent)
slower ball at a length outside off, looks to chop it through the covers but gets an inside edge towards the keeper
keeps the tie Super Over alive. Yorker on off stump, backs away and swings for it. Thick outside edge for a four to third man
yorker. Off stump. Single to long-off
follows him down leg side with a yorker. He pokes into the leg side
yorker at off stump, gets the front leg out of the way and squeezes it to extra cover
back of a length and in at off stump. Nudges it wide of point for the single
gets the yorker right this time. Nails it at an off stump line and the batsman can only get this down to long-off
beamerat an off stump line gets the glove of the batsman and Dhoni can't stop with his pads. Whew, that was scary. Short third man won't cut it off
Sanket Kumar: "This is the advantage of a quick start. India seem to have the extra 20 runs due the powerful start by the top 3. This should be the approach going forward!"
back of a length outisde off, chopped to point's right...who leaps to his right and gets a hand to cut out the speed on this. Then recovers to pick up and send in a flat throw above the stumps at the striker's end. During the course of all this, the batsmen have somehow though there's a second there. Not even close. Pandya's brilliance gives India a fourth wicket in the over
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
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.
slower ball at a length outside off. Backs away to try and punch this through extra cover. Done by change in pace, this goes towards long-on off the toe-end
overpitched on leg stump, driven to long-on's left and Phehlukwayo comes back for the second at the other end
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?
Bhuvneshwar will bowl his last over now. South Africa need 50 off 18 balls. Hendricks is deep in the crease.
WATCH - Behardien caught at long-on (Available only to viewers in the Indian subcontinent)
sliced over short third man. Seems to have made too much room once again but the offcutter finds itself coming in and catching the thick outside part of his attempted cut
