1.1 to RG Sharma, 139 kph, plumb in front this time! No review from Rohit and that's SA's first. This has been some start from the hosts. They have been bowling it full, enticing some swing, and the conditions haven't let them down. Pitched full outside off, it seams back in prodigiously to hit Rohit in front of middle and leg. A golden duck for Rohit. Not much he could do with that delivery. Has to accept the luck of the draw.. 0/1
5.3 to V Kohli, gloved and gone! KOHLI FAILS! It's a snorter of a delivery, back of a length, some extra bounce and climb as the ball moves away too ever so slightly. That's all you need for a man in form (not too much movement to beat the bat). It bounces, takes the glove and carries low to Klaasen. It's another jaffa. Two of them today for two wickets.. 45/3
Dane Paterson4051012.7547100
Jean-Paul Duminy201316.5041010
4.2 to S Dhawan, aargh, it's worked. A low full toss around middle and off, Dhawan comes down, meets the ball before it pitches, looks to hit the ball through mid-on, but gets it too straight. The bat handle may have turned in his hands, the full toss may have taken him by surprise. One way or another, Dhawan has picked out mid-on!. 44/2
Tabraiz Shamsi2024012.0031200
Andile Phehlukwayo201517.5031000
10.4 to SK Raina, swipes across the line and misses. Looks like a legcutter. It's a full ball on off stump, he walks across and swings to try and find the square leg boundary. There's a hint of this possibly sliding across and missing off, but it's not conclusive. Raina is convinced he's out, no review. 90/4

Shardul Thakur403117.7563010
4.6 to RR Hendricks, taken at deep square leg! What a play that was from Thakur. A slower ball around off and middle, Hendricks is through his shot too early, the ball takes the leading edge and travels all the way to deep square leg. Pandya takes the catch and runs off the field. We have a game now, and India are well ahead.. 38/2
Jaydev Unadkat3.4042211.4592420
3.5 to JT Smuts, a slower ball does Smuts in, again! He was struggling right through his innings, another slower delivery from Unadkat. It pitches, comes on much slower because of the pace taken off from the ball. Smuts tries to bail out of the stroke but the ball still has an unhindered path to the leading edge of the bat, hits the edge and balloons to cover. 24/1
13.1 to H Klaasen, Unadkat and his offcutter! They combine to bring India the wicket. That's the end of Klaasen. Back of a length ball angled in at middle stump, and straightening after pitching. Klaasen swings with the angle and is through it early. Gets a feather through to the keeper. The crowd is silent as Unadkat screeches "come on!" twice before the umpire lifts the finger. 131/3
Hardik Pandya403117.7563010
14.5 to DA Miller, fine leg runs in and takes it! Pandya's got him with a bouncer. In poor position to play that, trying to fetch from outside off but too slow on it. Splices it and Thakur keeps his eyes on it as he runs in. 141/4
