At Johannesburg, March 30, 2012 (floodlit). South Africa won by 11 runs (D/L). Toss: India. Twenty20 international debuts: F. Behardien, D. J. Vilas.
"Let's hope it doesn't rain," quipped Dhoni as he left the pre-match press conference. Unfortunately it did. Kallis, one of only two - with Tsotsobe - in South Africa's squad to have made the trip from New Zealand, made light work of jet lag to belt 61 from 42 balls, in a match somewhat crassly dedicated to him. Ingram was even more destructive, forcing Dhoni to persist with part-time spinners for longer than desirable. Gambhir responded with a quick 49 but, with Uthappa struggling to get Tsotsobe away at the other end, India were 12 runs behind on Duckworth/Lewis when a thunderstorm ended play in the eighth over. That meant South Africa achieved the oddity of winning without claiming a wicket. The whole thing was an oddity, to be frank.
Man of the Match: C.A. Ingram.
