Morkel to Rohit, SIX, wow! What a glorious shot to get off the mark. A six over deep mid-wicket. Morkel bangs one short and Rohit has no problems in dealing with that. He comes half-forward and clouts the pull well in front of square on the leg-side

OT

to Rohit, no run. Rohit is given out, caught-behind and is pumped up. Oh, wait. Rohit reviews. Fair delivery. There was definitely a noise. Was it bat hitting the pad? Definitely, bat hits the pad. Here comes the UltraEdge. Ah! This is very close. Very tough for the TV umpire. There's a spike as the ball passes by the bat. The onfield call has been overturned. NOT OUT! Good review from Rohit Sharma. That was tantalizingly close to outside edge. But, the question is, was there conclusive evidence to overturn the onfield call? Rohit pushed at at a good length delivery with limited feet movement. The ball seamed away slightly and missed the nick

4

Morkel to Dhawan, FOUR, Dhawan is underway with a boundary. Fullish ball, with width on offer, Dhawan bends his back knee and slaps it through cover-point. In the air, but in the gap

4

Morkel to Dhawan, FOUR, four more! Another shot played in the air and once again, Dhawan gets the placement drive. Half-volley outside off, Dhawan throws his bat at it and crashes it wide of Miller at cover. Races away

4

to Rohit, FOUR, too straight and that's been put away. Closes the bat-face and works it in front of square on the leg-side. Didn't over-hit, just relied on timing. The deep square leg fielder can't cut it off

4

to Rohit, FOUR, deft! Short and just outside off, Rohit arches his back and elevates it over the cordon. Nicely ramped. There's no third man

W

to Rohit, out Caught by Morne Morkel!! South Africa have a breakthrough. gets his man and gives Rohit a mini send-off. It was banged in short by and Rohit wasn't in the greatest of positions to play the pull shot. He was cramped for room, but still persisted with the shot. Got it off the top portion of the bat and the ball went towards fine leg. Morne Morkel comes forward to complete a good low catch. Rohit c Morne Morkel b 15(17) [4s-2 6s-1]

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, glorious shot! There's not much of footwork there, but the timing is spot on. It was angled away outside off from a fullish length, Dhawan stood tall and drove it superbly between mid-off and extra cover

4

Morris to Dhawan, FOUR, the length draws Dhawan forward this time, it finds his outside edge too but the ball dies immediately and sneaks past gully for four. This is like a Test field from South Africa, so there's no third man

6

to Kohli, SIX, oh take that! with his third successive short ball, and this time Kohli gets a right hold of it. He swivels across and smacks it over fine leg. Shot!

4

Morris to Kohli, FOUR, up and over backward point, very deliberate! 141kph, short of length delivery outside off, Kohli uses the pace and upper-cuts it to the fence. Lovely batting

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, his eyes lit up after he picked the length. It was short, Dhawan was back in a flash and he absolutely smashed the pull through mid-wicket

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, he was down on his back knee for a premeditated sweep, saw that the ball was a trifle short outside off and improvised with a cut. It goes right through Morne at backward point. Clumsy effort

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, he drops it short again outside off and is pulled away through mid-wicket. Two poor deliveries after I found him to be in good rhythm

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, loopy full ball on leg, ends up as a low full toss and is swept away over backward square. India motoring towards the target

4

to Kohli, FOUR, smeared away through the covers. This was overpitched outside off and Kohli was not going to miss out. Brilliant timing

4

to Kohli, FOUR, oh dear, the crowds are appalled as Zondo makes an embarrassing error in the deep. It was tucked straight to him, but he took his eyes off at deep mid-wicket. Couldn't recover in time

4

Morkel to Dhawan, FOUR, off-cutter at 124kph, slogged away over mid-wicket. He picked it right away

D

Morkel to Dhawan, no run, has he dropped it? has his hands on the head. Yes, it carried to Miller. Probably another off-cutter, Dhawan chipped his drive on the up and with someone like Miller over there, it should probably have been taken. It was travelling though, low to his right. But he did get both hands

4

Morkel to Kohli, FOUR, charges out of the crease, there's sufficient room for him to free his arms, and he blitzes it over point. What a shot

OT

to Dhawan, 1 run, punched down to long-on for a single. It's fifty too for Dhawan. It's come at better than a run-a-ball

4

to Amla, FOUR, cracking shot, that's a nice way to get going, fraction short and wide of off, Amla stands tall and punches it on the up, splits the gap past cover-point and is off the mark with a boundary

4

to Amla, FOUR, edged and four, Bhuvneshwatr's discipline brings out the loose shot from Amla, width on offer and Amla threw his hands at that, gets a thick edge that flies past the fielder at wide slip

4

to Amla, FOUR, cracking shot, much better from Amla , fraction fuller and wider of off, Amla leans into the drive and caresses it into the gap past cover, no need to run for those

4

Pandya to de Kock, FOUR, .. but that doesn't stop him leaking runs, a couple of steps down the track, de Kock gets close to the ball and then whips it behind square leg for a boundary

4

Pandya to de Kock, FOUR, streaky and four, on a good length and well outside off, de Kock took a step down the track and was early into the drive, gets a fat edge that loops over backward point and beats the man getting across from deep point

4

to Amla, FOUR, lovely, nothing wrong with the delivery, but that's a corker from Amla, on a good length and just outside off, Amla leans into the ball, plays with a straight bat and drives it on the up, beats cover and rolls away to the fence

W

to Amla, out Caught by Dhoni!! Amla has been given out caught behind and he immediately reviews. It's a fair delivery, there's a noise and the bat is well away from the pad. We will need UltraEdge to confirm and it says there's a faint edge. Amla was just getting into his stride and that's a big wicket for the Indians. shortened his length and got it to angle back into the right-hander, Amla was playing from the crease as he looked to whip it towards the on-side, gets a faint inside edge and Dhoni does the rest. The appeal was spontaneous and umpire Aleem Dar did't take long to raise his finger. The replays were crystal clear as well, South Africa have lost their only review. Amla c Dhoni b 23(32) [4s-4]

4

Pandya to Markram, FOUR, poor line from , India's search for a proper fifth bowler might still continue if bowls the way he's doing so far. Short and angling down the leg-side, Markram gets inside the line and flicks it fine, nice way to get going

W

to de Kock, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!! Oh dear! de Kock pulls a long hop straight into the hands of deep square leg. He got a start, but nothing more than just a start. This was dropped short by , perhaps got some extra turn as a result, de Kock was rocking back on the pull, gets it right off the toe-end and loops a simple catch to Hardik. He runs in and accepts the offering. The hosts have now lost both opening batsmen. de Kock c Hardik Pandya b 20(36) [4s-2]

W

Yadav to Markram, out Caught by Bhuvneshwar!! Can you believe it, two long hops from the two Indian wrists spinners and India have got two wickets. Gibson looks stunned in the dressing room, Markram is on his haunches, but he has to go. Freak dismissals and India suddenly have three wickets in the bag. A gentle loosener from , short and down the leg-side, Markram perhaps got greedy, was aiming for the maximum as he pulled hard and flat. Bhuvneshwar was the man in the deep and it's rocketed straight towards him, he doesn't drop and India are on a team hat-trick. Markram c Bhuvneshwar b Yadav 8(11) [4s-1]

W

Yadav to Miller, out Caught by Rahane!! South Africa have lost three wickets at 51 and they are sinking in Centurion. Beautifully bowled by young , gave this one plenty of air, drew the batsman forward into the drive, it dipped in front of Miller and then spun a tad, caught the outside edge and Rahane does the rest at first slip. India are on a roll at the moment. Miller c Rahane b Yadav 0(4)

4

Yadav to Zondo, FOUR, lovely, a full-toss from and Zondo puts it away, gets well forward and swats it wide of mid-wicket, beats the man getting across from deep mid-wicket

4

Pandya to Duminy, FOUR, lovely shot, Chahal's off the attack and the pressure is off as well, on a good length and just outside off, Duminy leans forward, presents the full face of the bat and drives it past the diving mid-off fielder

4

Pandya to Duminy, FOUR, short of a length and well outside off, Duminy was looking to punch off the back-foot, gets a thick outside edge and towards third man. Bumrah puts in the dive, but can't stop the ball from hitting the ropes. Might have himself bruised during the effort

4

Pandya to Zondo, FOUR, nicely done! Just a hint of width outside off from a back of a length and Zondo plays very late. Opened the bat-face at the last moment and steered it between the keeper and a wide-ish second slip

W

to Zondo, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!! In, out and in. Pandya takes a juggling catch and South Africa lose their fifth wicket. Zondo, who looked pretty comfortable against the spinners perishes trying to play a high-risk shot. A nicely tossed up delivery, that pitches around off and turns away. Zondo gets down to play the booming slog-sweep away from the turn and gets a fat top-edge that balloons up in the air. Hardik, from mid-wicket, runs back and tries to reverse-cup it. The ball pops out, but he manages to hold onto it in the second attempt. Second wicket for Yuzvendra ! Zondo c Hardik Pandya b 25(45) [4s-2]

4

to Chris Morris, FOUR, a powerful drive from Morris to open his account. Morris tosses this up outside off and asks the batsman to drive. Morris is up for the challenge. Presses forward and hammers the cover-drive through extra cover

W

to Duminy, out Lbw!! Duminy misses the sweep, India go up for an lbw appeal and umpire Adrian Holdstock raises his finger. Duminy thinks of reviewing, but the umpire reminds him that they don't have any. Duminy has to walk back. A tossed up leg-break that pitchs on off and middle. Duminy misses it and is rapped on the front leg in front of middle. That would have crashed into the leg-pole. Three reds show HawkEye. Into the tail now. Duminy lbw b 25(39) [4s-2]

W

Yadav to Rabada, out Lbw!! The wrist spinners are running riot here at Centurion. The googly does the trick. Rabada didn't pick that. He was playing for the away-turner and hence played down the wrong line. Skid off the pitch and pinged Rabada in front of middle and leg. India went up right away and umpire Aleem Dar was quick to raise the dreaded finger. They shared five between them in Durban. Six already, here. Rabada lbw b Yadav 1(5)

D

Yadav to Morne Morkel, 1 run. What's happening! Firstly, Kedar Jadhav dropped a catch at mid-on. And, then there's a query for run-out. The TV umpire is called. Safe! NOT OUT flashed on the giant screen. Morkel's intent is clear. Decides to go over mid-on first ball, by clearing his front leg. Gets it off the cue end and Kedar put down a chance after moving to his left. Chris Morris wanted the single and Morkel was late to respond. A direct hit would have been curtains for the tall fellow. By the time, the bowler collected and dislodged the bails, Morkel made his ground with a dive

6

Yadav to Chris Morris, SIX, shot! Flighted delivery on middle and leg, Morris clears the front leg and bludgeons it over long-on for a massive six

W

to Morne Morkel, out Lbw!! Another one bites the dust! Morne Morkel misses the wrong 'un and that's plumb. Morkel isn't happy - not sure why. It was slightly on the shorter side and Morkel failed to put bat on ball - trying to work it through the on-side. Pitched - in line, impact - in front of middle and wickets - hitting. Can't get more plumb. He was struck on the back leg. Morne Morkel lbw b 1(4)

W

to Tahir, out Bowled!! Knocked him over! This was on the cards. Full, fast and on the stumps. Simple method to dismiss a lower-order batsman. It was bowled at 141kph aiming the base of the stumps. Too quick for Tahir, who is backing away. He is late to bring his bat down and the ball crashes into the off-peg. Nine down. Tahir b 0(7)

W

to Chris Morris, out Caught by Bhuvneshwar!! South Africa have been bundled out for 118. A five-wicket haul for Yuzvendra and this is his best figures in ODIs. Can't blame Morris here. He had no other choice other than attacking. In the process, perishes. A flighted delivery, that was full in length. Morris slightly backed away to make room and wanted it to carve it over extra cover. The ball turned away and he ended up slogging straight into the bucket hands of Bhuvi at sweeper cover. Chris Morris c Bhuvneshwar b 14(10) [4s-1 6s-1]
