TOTAL46.5 Ov (RR: 4.35, 209 Mins)204
Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Hashim Amla, 6.3 ov), 2-43 (Aiden Markram, 9.5 ov), 3-105 (AB de Villiers, 20.5 ov), 4-135 (Heinrich Klaasen, 30.3 ov), 5-136 (Farhaan Behardien, 31.2 ov), 6-142 (Chris Morris, 33.3 ov), 7-151 (Khaya Zondo, 36.6 ov), 8-187 (Morne Morkel, 43.4 ov), 9-192 (Imran Tahir, 45.4 ov), 10-204 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 46.5 ov)
6.3 to HM Amla, Thakur has Amla strangled down the leg side Dug in short and angling down the leg side, Amla can't quite control the pull because of the line. And he is late onto the shot. He would have been better off had he left it alone. Instead, he gloves it behind to Dhoni. Thakur roars "come on" and celebrates a wicket on return. 23/1
9.5 to AK Markram, Thakur strikes again, this time with the slower offcutter. Thakur's Mumbai team-mate Iyer claims an outstanding overhead catch. He hangs on even as he tumbles onto the ground. Pitched up outside off, the change of pace does the SA captain in. He plays a long way in front of his body and scoops a drive to cover. Great catch from Iyer after the drops earlier in the series. Perfect way for India to round out the Powerplay. 43/2
31.2 to F Behardien, that's a ripper at deep third man! Jasprit Bumrah, take a bow! He's not among the safest hands in the Indian line-up, but he responds to this upper cut from Behardien well enough, sprinting to his right, keeping his eyes on the ball, diving to get to it, and then it just sticks in his right hand. Lucky break for India (not that they really needed it). 136/5
46.5 to AL Phehlukwayo, Thakur has Andile chipping a return catch. Full and around off stump, possibly a knuckle ball, Andile aims to work it to the leg side. Instead, he leading-edges it back to Thakur. He bags four wickets on return. 204/10
30.3 to H Klaasen, scoops a good low catch at short cover and Kohli comes up with a little gesture at the batsman, the finger on his lips. Good bowling from Bumrah, on a slow pitch, he dishes out the offcutter. The length is full, the line is just that tiny bit wide of off stump to draw the batsman into a drive. Klaasen hits it straight at the fielder. 135/4
45.4 to Imran Tahir, Tahir has the tendency to stay leg-side of the ball. This is pitched up on middle, Tahir stays leg-side of the ball, both feet inside the crease, he winds up reaching out for the ball with his hands and scoops a drive to Kohli at short cover. And that's Kohli's 100th catch in ODIs. 192/9
43.4 to M Morkel, Big Morne gives himself room and scythes it straight into the lap of sweeper cover. Short and wide outside off, Morne stays leg-side of the ball, and holes out to Iyer, who clings onto his second catch of the day - this is a dolly. 187/8
33.3 to CH Morris, Kuldeep adds his name into the wickets column with a wrong'un. The wristspinner has Morris holing out to long-off, where Dhawan pouches it safely and slaps his thigh in celebration. Tossed up liberally around off and breaks away. Morris looks to slug the googly away - against the break. He can't get underneath this very full one either. All he can do is to skew a catch to Dhawan in the deep via a leading edge. 142/6
20.5 to AB de Villiers, the stumps take a beating. So does AB's rep; even he has not picked the legspinner's variation. He sets up for a cut shot, making tons of room outside leg, expecting a legbreak. But the ball pitches and skids on straight - like a flipper - and beats him completely. 105/3
36.6 to K Zondo, Chahal hangs this legbreak up in the air and gets it to drop down outside off. Zondo, having made room by skipping outside leg, drives inside-out but can't elevate the shot over Pandya at deep cover. India's wristspinners are at it again. 151/7

TOTAL32.1 Ov (RR: 6.40, 138 Mins)206/2
Fall of wickets: 1-19 (Rohit Sharma, 3.4 ov), 2-80 (Shikhar Dhawan, 12.4 ov)
3.4 to RG Sharma, top-edges the pull and Klaasen takes the offering gleefully! Rohit thinks the shot is on because the line is on leg stump, and his intention is to only help it to fine leg. But Ngidi generates extra bounce by hitting the deck and provides South Africa with a massive breakthrough. Also, the ball is only 126 kph, so the miscue doesn't really travel too far. 19/1
12.4 to S Dhawan, smacks it straight to point! It's there for the cut. And the cut comes out, with plenty of power. So much that Zondo ends up having the juggle the ball. But all is well and South Africa have their second wicket. 80/2
