Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Rohit Sharma, 0.6 ov), 2-140 (Shikhar Dhawan, 23.1 ov), 3-160 (Ajinkya Rahane, 27.4 ov), 4-188 (Hardik Pandya, 32.5 ov), 5-228 (MS Dhoni, 41.3 ov), 6-236 (Kedar Jadhav, 42.4 ov)
0.6 to RG Sharma, trying to withdraw the bat, but the ball takes the inside edge! Why? It's because of the length and pace. The indecisive length - Rohit doesn't know whether to come forward or go back - and Rabada's pace - more then 135 kmph. It all results in an uncertainty in Rohit's play. A thin inside edge as the ball seams back, and Klaasen has his first catch in international cricket. Lovely start from Rabada. 0/1
32.5 to HH Pandya, gets him to edge. Pandya slashes hard at a length ball outside off. Through the shot a tad early and he isn't close to the pitch of it. Hardly any feet. Morris gets marginal lift and it's a kiss of the edge. 188/4
42.4 to KM Jadhav, and just as I say that, he strikes! Good length outside off, Jadhav goes reaching, trying to dab one down to third man but all he can get is a thick edge to the keeper. There's extra bounce in this surface. He didn't account for that. 236/6
41.3 to MS Dhoni, Dhoni picks out long-on, 10 off 22. A proper struggle. Some flight from Tahir, Dhoni comes down, doesn't get to the pitch but goes through with the stroke anyway. It doesn't have great timing so it's easily taken at long-on.. 228/5
23.1 to S Dhawan, taken at short midwicket. You could see even against Tahir that the slower it got, the more edgy Dhawan was getting. Duminy floated this up at off stump. He stepped out and had to end up reaching out with hard hands. Got it off the inside half of the bat and ended up chipping wide of midwicket who leaped to his left and took it high. 140/2
27.4 to AM Rahane, and he's made Rahane play a poor shot. A small play from Markram, putting a fielder in the batsman's sight. And one dot ball later, Rahane feels the need to step out again. Once again, he's beaten in the flight. Dips and drifts away from him. He's reaching out and his bottom hand is coming off. It's a feeble chip to long-off off the bottom of the bat. 160/3

TOTAL40 Ov (RR: 4.47, 170 Mins)179
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Hashim Amla, 1.1 ov), 2-79 (Aiden Markram, 16.2 ov), 3-88 (Heinrich Klaasen, 19.2 ov), 4-95 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 21.5 ov), 5-129 (David Miller, 32.3 ov), 6-150 (Chris Morris, 35.2 ov), 7-150 (Khaya Zondo, 36.1 ov), 8-158 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 37.3 ov), 9-167 (Imran Tahir, 38.4 ov), 10-179 (Lungi Ngidi, 39.6 ov)
1.1 to HM Amla, traps him in front! Amla caught in the crease even as he's shuffling. Bumrah bowls a regulation length ball slanted in at off stump. Amla very deep in the crease as he looks to defend, as he is wont to do. Misses the ball and after a brief chat, decides against the review. 1/1
32.3 to DA Miller, and then the pressure is on Miller, so he looks for a big shot and he perishes! On Zondo equally, I'm afraid, this wicket. Back of a length around middle and leg, Miller looks for a big slog, but he gets a thin inside edge through to the keeper. Miller tried, looking for runs, but the pressure was too much.. 129/5
19.2 to H Klaasen, 73 kph, an appeal and given! Flat down leg, Klaasen misses a flick and is struck in front of middle. Klaasen just can't connect with a nudge, the ball pitches and spins past the outside edge and hits Klaasen in front of off. There was some doubt about whether it pitched in line. JP, I think, asked him to carry on, but it was worth the review. Pitched in line, says HawkEye.. 88/3
21.5 to JP Duminy, and Duminy's given now and he opts to review! Flat delivery outside off, the ball spins back in and hits Duminy in front of leg. He has missed a straight one, he went way back but like de Kock in the first ODI, he just misses one. Three reds on HawkEye, so SA lose their set man and the review. Sinking again against wristspin.. 95/4
36.1 to K Zondo, Zondo takes the early release as he steps out and swings across the line. Chahal might have taken wickets like this in local leagues - just tosses it up slow at an off stump line and lets the batsman do the rest. Zondo nowhere near the pitch, head looking in the direction of midwicket, bat coming down from gully, feet pointed at square leg. The ball keeps it's trajectory and ends up on the off side, in extra cover's hands. 150/7
38.4 to Imran Tahir, another heave, another top edge. Length ball floated up at off stump. Goes for the old slog sweep and it hangs up for Kohli in the wide mid-on area. He takes with a reverse cup. 167/9
16.2 to AK Markram, beaten in flight, beaten by turn, Dhoni completes the job. Doesn't manage to get to the pitch, which has been a feature of his batting against spin today. Looks to force it into the leg side as the ball continues to drift away. Dhoni does it as easy as he always does and walks towards the bowler in the same motion. 79/2
35.2 to CH Morris, dead in front. Morris done in by natural variation. It keeps low as he goes on the back foot. In the end, he has to get down on his knees and swipe across the line to try and make a sweep out of it. It skids under the blade and hits him on the back thigh, right in front of the stumps. No doubt there, it was pitching in line. India brought back a wristpinner to get Morris, they've got him first ball. 150/6
37.3 to AL Phehlukwayo, his response is to go the other way and cover those two stumps this time. Kuldeep floats it outside off and wide from him. The loop beats him as he goes across the line and another top edge is taken easily at extra cover. 158/8
39.6 to L Ngidi, and that's what he does. Wrong'un straightens from middle stump at a good length. Ngidi looks for the slog again and he's struck in front of off stump. 179/10
