4

to Markram, FOUR, exquisite shot! Markram was on the shuffle and then stands tall to punch this off the back foot. Times it sweet and picks the gap at cover as well

4

to Markram, FOUR, edged but wide of first slip! A typical delivery, straightens after the initial inward angle which means that Markram has to play at it. Takes the edge but he gets lucky as it doesn't go to hand. Races away to the third man fence

4

to Amla, FOUR, another edge that eludes first slip! gets this to hold its line just outside off, Amla was on the shuffle as he pushes at this one. Gets a nick and the fielder was never going to get to this. Very fine and down to the third man fence

4

to Markram, FOUR, edged but another boundary! This must be frustrating Kohli no end. Back of a length angling in from outside off, Markram pushes inside the line to this delivery which straightens off the deck. Once again the first slip fielder, Rohit it is, dives but cannot reach to it. Third man was in the ring and so it was always going to be a boundary

4

to Amla, FOUR, typical Amla shot! Short of a length and gets a hint of width, he just stands tall and punches sweetly to find the gap at point. Beautiful

4

to Amla, FOUR, nice shot! Fractionally short from and Amla puts it away with a good back foot punch. Kuldeep at sweeper cover did try to get to it, even put in a dive, but in vain

W

to Markram, out Lbw!! strikes! This was the plan to get Amla but they have Markram instead. India won't mind though. Always looked out to the naked eye and it's surprising that Amla wanted the review taken by Markram. Full ball that angled into the SA skipper, he wanted to whip it across the line but the length wasn't there for the shot. Gets hit on the back knee and the umpire had no hesitation in raising his finger. Strangely, the review was taken and as there was clearly no bat involved, the obvious was inevitable. Three Reds on HawkEye. Must say that this was a really poor shot. Having got such a good start, he shouldn't have given it away. Markram lbw b 22(23) [4s-3]

4

Pandya to Amla, FOUR, cracking shot! Fuller ball and Amla's idea was simple, to clear the infield. Holds his shape to lift this cleanly over cover. The man at sweeper had no chance to cut this off. Fine placement and a welcome boundary for SA

W

Yadav to Duminy, out Lbw!! That's the end of Duminy! Debatable LBW call this because he was quite far down the track on the flick but missed it to be rapped on the pads. appealed hard and even slipped backwards onto the pitch as the umpire's finger went up. No review left for SA as their skipper used it up already. Maybe a DRS might have helped. Anyways, it won't now. Duminy lbw b Yadav 10(14)

4

Pandya to de Villiers, FOUR, swatted away! getting predictable with his shorter length and de Villiers is too good to miss out. Rocks back and mauls the pull over mid-wicket. One bounce and over

W

Yadav to Amla, out Caught by Bhuvneshwar!! Drama. Massive doles of it. Bhuvi pulls off a stunner. Or does he? So here's what he does - he waits right at the edge of the ropes, a small hop up, reverse-cupping it. Realizes his center of gravity is set to tip him over and lobs it up. Overbalances, and quickly recovers to grab it back. So and his inviting flight he keeps giving buys him another wicket. Amla checks his lofted drive, timing it a little too well off the middle. If only it were a smaller boundary. If only it were an Indian fielder of the old. If only .. Amla c Bhuvneshwar b Yadav 33(40) [4s-4]

4

Yadav to Miller, FOUR, was only a matter of time. Why bother reading the turn when you want to sweep. So he brings out the broom, lets his stride take him right forward and nails it behind square. Nothing a dive from a running fine leg can do

6

to de Villiers, SIX, there's the slog. Floated up, AB quickly on a knee. And the hands are quicker. Never does he bother keeping it down. Slog, never mind the top-edge..Highveld and it's altitude carries it over cow corner. Comfortably

6

to de Villiers, SIX, replies with a rank long hop. Oh the pressure. Oh the reputation. Hacks back, and the plunder follows. With a massive swipe, flat-ting it into mid-wicket

W

Pandya to de Villiers, out Caught by Rohit!! The persistence with Pandya, against conventional logic buys out the wicket. Probably the game too in the process. Oh it's all in the ego. A nothing sitter going down leg, AB can't resist. He chases it with a massive flat-batted heave across the line. And picks out a square fine leg to perfection. After hovering around the 140s range, Pandya dishes out a slower one, making AB lose all timing. de Villiers c Rohit b Pandya 26(18) [4s-1 6s-2]

D

to Miller, 1 run, in..and out. Miller sweeps, airy, and Iyer at the boundary behind square dives, for no apparent reason. Hard hands too. Nothing's the recipe for a catch. Hence proved..again

4

Pandya to Miller, FOUR, a juicy pitch up. Miller with a massive backlift goes through the line, showing all the bat face in a lofted drill over mid-off

4

Pandya to Miller, FOUR, continues his new life celebration. A horror drag down to help this time, with generous width outside off. Miller is on his toes, reaching out and opening up his bat to carve it over point

4

Pandya to Miller, FOUR, more of the long hop sitters. Miller goes against the line, hacking it uppishly over mid-wicket for a change. Oh the difference a life makes to you, and the fun you have of rubbing it in

4

to Klaasen, FOUR, in the length smacking zone. Just what Klaasen needed to join the fun. Out goes his front leg, up go his arms and out goes the ball, into long-on

4

Yadav to Klaasen, FOUR, MSD's heads up was for him to shuffle and sweep. Klaasen does exactly that..only reverse. Doesn't mind taking things against the spin, lofting it over the man at point, and the outfield takes over

6

Yadav to Miller, SIX, yeah, into the car park. The umpires too not keen on wasting time in searching for this. Miller in typical slogs of his, times the pants off this one. Into the skies and into the gallery over cow corner

4

to Klaasen, FOUR, he has a measure of the field, and is toying around. He's past his stumps and another set of it, realizes there's nobody behind square leg. He lofts it over, pulling, falling, never mind

6

to Klaasen, SIX, there are some ways to deal with free-hits and then there is this. Klaasen is on the move, under the length and it's a full-blooded hoick. Talk about reversing tables. He's done it with this deposit into long-on, several rows into

4

to Klaasen, FOUR, oh dear. It's slipping away..literally. Klaasen chases a wide one outside off, outside-halves it to third man, where Kuldeep over-runs and lets the ball sneak under

6

to Miller, SIX, the horrors of these short drag downs. Miller amplifies it with his rock back in the crease. And the noise levels at Wanderers is set to chart unseen territories. Pulls the leather off it, into his owned region. Deep mid-wicket

W

to Miller, out Lbw!! The web is out. After the skidders that've been smoked into the galaxy, 's slower one does its bit. Slow float up on middle, Miller meanwhile gets a touch too far across to quietly sneak a single with a nudge across. Plays down the wrong line - and finds himself struck on the front foot. Nah, it isn't spinning enough to go down. It's crashing into leg. Miller lbw b 39(28) [4s-4 6s-2]

4

Yadav to Klaasen, FOUR, oh my. Starts with a massive gallop into his crease and then unleashes utter class in his lofted off-punch. Over the covers and a bounce into the fence. There aren't very many better ways to seal games

4

Yadav to Phehlukwayo, FOUR, carnage. Half way down the track from for some reason. Phehlukwayo is quicker to reverse his stance as he pulls it away through third man now

6

Yadav to Phehlukwayo, SIX, conventionally. And he has the biggest smile you'd ever see. Wow. Walks in, oblivious to the situation and smokes a few. A cross batted slog, into long-on for some crowd catching

6

to Phehlukwayo, SIX, step, step, away, full bat swing. Right to the pitch of the ball in unleashing his mighty arms, and some mighty timing. Repair the sightscreen, Cricket South Africa

6

to Phehlukwayo, SIX, finishes quite how he started. Just wow. Gets the length to sit under, he stays low, as usual, swings his bat, as usual and tonks it into cow corner, as usual. Pink refuses to let South Africa down. The series is alive

4

to Rohit, FOUR, just a touch! Full toss, little outside off and the batsman leant down on it, opened the face on impact and guided it past mid-off for a welcome boundary. The out-field is touch on the slower side but the ball ended up winning the race

4

Morkel to Dhawan, FOUR, his purple patch with the bat continues to traverse more territories. Full ball and spanked down the ground with a bat as straight as a ram rod! He stood in the pose for the clickers to have a good snap

W

to Rohit, out Caught&Bowled!! That was a length ball, Rohit hung back and pushed at it. The bat face turned a bit and the ball was scooped back. The bowler in his followthrough bent low and completed an outstanding reflex take. The third umpire was asked to have a look and he had a microscopic look at it to signal the departure of Rohit. His bad form continues. Rohit c and b 5(13) [4s-1]

4

Morkel to Dhawan, FOUR, chinese cut! Looked to steer it, the ball found the inside edge and raced past the sticks and the keeper for a four towards fine leg

4

Morkel to Dhawan, FOUR, banged in short. Dhawan has had enough. A little swivel and then the pull stamped away towards in front of square on the on-side. One bounce and into the fence

4

to Kohli, FOUR, edged and gone..gone to the fence. The ball climbed on the batsman and Kohli edged it to send it well over the man at second slip for a four

4

to Kohli, FOUR, I am pretty sure Kohli has this for every meal of the day. Length ball on the pads, clipped away past the square leg fielder, who misfielded for Kohli to gobble up another four

4

Morris to Dhawan, FOUR, short ball just outside off, Dhawan gets on the back foot and bludgeons that pull to deep mid-wicket for four

4

Morris to Dhawan, FOUR, short delivery pitching outside leg and angling in, and it is surprising that he managed to get into position from that side-on stance and hooked it away to backward square leg for four

4

Ngidi to Kohli, FOUR, Wow! Not too much wrong with that ball, just fuller than a good length in the channel outside off, Kohli just walks down and non-chalantly flamingo-drives that to the wide long-on fence for four. Just watch and admire!

6

Ngidi to Kohli, SIX, wow! A Brobdingnagian monstrosity of a shot! Good length ball just outside off, Kohli walks down and just whip-drives it on the up, high and into the sight-screen. Ridiculous talent, this man is

OT

to Dhawan, 2 runs, 26th ODI fifty for Gabbar! Good length ball on the pads, tickled away to fine leg for a couple

6

to Dhawan, SIX, good length ball on leg stump, Dhawan shimmies down and displays a dash of arrogance as he whips it over the deep mid-wicket fence for six. Madness!

4

Morris to Kohli, FOUR, good length ball just outside off, Kohli gets low and comes down the pitch to get under it and lofts it away to long-on for four as it trickles away to the boundary

4

Morris to Dhawan, FOUR, full delivery on middle, Dhawan looks confident as he whips it away to the deep mid-wicket fence with surgical precision

OT

to Kohli, 2 runs, short ball on the body and Kohli nails a Dravid-esque pull to deep mid-wicket for a couple, and the partnership between Kohli and Dhawan is now 100, the eighth one between these two

4

Morkel to Kohli, FOUR, another fifty for Kohli, and his average in this ODI series approaches 400! Good length ball outside off, Kohli fearlessly runs down as though approaching a spinner and flat-bats it to the long-off boundary for four

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, that's one problem with having the keeper up, a hint of width and the pace is gentle to say the least, just late-cuts it away to third man for four

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, good length ball on middle and off, Dhawan tries to heave it into the on-side and gets an aerial outside edge over the circle to third man for four. Dhawan riding his luck here, and it has taken him to 73!

4

Morkel to Kohli, FOUR, good length ball just outside off, scrambled seam and seaming away, landing on a 5'o'clock position, Kohli gets an outside edge to third man for four. Kohli carrying all the luck in the world

4

Ngidi to Dhawan, FOUR, short ball, wide outside off and the batsman chops the ball away past point. The man at deep third man dives over the ball and Dhawan gets a four

4

to Kohli, FOUR, take that! Boom! Through the covers for a four. Dished out wide delivery and the batsman spanked the drive past the man at extra cover for a four

OT

to Kohli, 1 run, 150 runs for these two! That was flighted up and the batsman drives the ball away to long-off

W

Morris to Kohli, out Caught by Miller!! Gone! South Africa get rid of Kohli, and he misses his 35th ton by 25 runs. It was a back of a length delivery wide of off, Kohli advances and decides to go over the cover fielder with a flat-batted stroke. Got it off the top portion of the bat and ended up gifting a pretty straightforward catch to Miller at cover. End of a good knock from the Indian skipper. The umpires checked if it was a fair delivery - Morris is fine. Kohli c Miller b Morris 75(83) [4s-7 6s-1]

6

to Dhawan, SIX, top shot! Not a great ball from . Bowls a half-volley on the pads and that's been easily flicked over square leg for a six

4

Morris to Dhawan, FOUR, gets a juicy full toss and that's been push-driven down the ground. Runs away to the fence beating the dive of mid-off and that brings up Shikhar Dhawan's 13th ODI century! A bright smile on his face as he removes his helmet and raises his bat. Gets a standing ovation from his teammates

4

Morris to Rahane, FOUR, Rahane goes aerial and makes tremendous contact. It was an in-angler on a good length, Rahane comes forward and across to flick it over mid-wicket. One bounce and into the fence

W

Morkel to Dhawan, out Caught by de Villiers!! In the air and taken! Dhawan has to depart. It was a fuller length ball wide of off, Dhawan reaches out for the drive and chips it off the bottom portion of the bat to mid-off. A dolly for AB there. South Africa remove the centurion after the rain break. Dhawan c de Villiers b Morkel 109(105) [4s-11 6s-2]

W

Ngidi to Rahane, out Caught by Rabada!! Rahane picks the man in the deep perfectly. 134kph short ball just above the waist, Rahane goes after it with a pull shot. Wasn't in total control of the shot as he got it high on the bat. Straight into the hands of Rabada at deep square leg. India have slipped to 210/4 from 178/1. Rahane c Rabada b Ngidi 8(15) [4s-1]

6

Morkel to Dhoni, SIX, just over the fielder. Bouncer outside off, Dhoni slashes it over the cover fielder. Probably wanted it to go over point. Got it squarer and he would have had his heart in his mouth for a while. Andile, at sweeper cover, jumps high as he can, but the ball flew over him. A six for Dhoni

4

Morkel to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, an eye-pleasing stroke. Fuller than a good length attacking the stumps, Shreyas Iyer offers a straight bat to straight-drive to send it past the bowler. The fielder in the deep puts in a dive, but in vain

4

Ngidi to Dhoni, FOUR, edged and four! Lots of width on this pacy ball outside off. Dhoni walks across and goes hard at it. All he manages is a fat outside edge that goes very fine. Andile, from third man, puts in a full-stretched dive. Gets a hand on it, but can't stop the ball from going over the rope

4

Ngidi to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, back of a length delivery, Shreyas Iyer lifts it over the mid-off fielder. Didn't quite time it well, but had enough wood on it to get a boundary

W

Ngidi to Shreyas Iyer, out Caught by Chris Morris!! Gone, next ball. Picks the man at long-on. It was actually in his slot to play that shot. A length ball, Iyer stood tall and wanted to go over long-on. Doesn't have sufficient power on the shot and ends up giving a simple catch to Morris. Shreyas Iyer c Chris Morris b Ngidi 18(21) [4s-2]

4

Morris to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, one bounce and into the fence. Short ball that sits up nicely for Pandya, who gets into a good position after walking across and then smites the pull over mid-wicket

W

to Hardik Pandya, out Caught by Markram!! Markram has pulled off an absolute screamer. A full ball angled in from , Pandya stayed deep in his crease to carve it over extra cover. Made decent contact there did Hardik, but hang on. The South African skipper at extra cover timed his jump to perfection and plucked it with his right hand. Fully stretched. It almost went over him. Hardik Pandya c Markram b 9(13) [4s-1]

4

to Dhoni, leg byes, FOUR, another boundary! The short ball got big on Dhoni who was shimmying down the ground. Goes with his pull shot and the ball flies past the keeper off his shoulder. Trickles away into the third man fence

4

Morris to Dhoni, FOUR, wow! That's the power of Dhoni. Wasn't a bad ball from Morris. Almost a yorker outside off, Dhoni takes the front leg out of his way and drills it through extra cover. Bulleted away

W

Morris to Dhoni, out Bhuvneshwar Run Out!! 1 run completed. Low full toss, Dhoni goes too hard on the drive and sends it to long-on off the toe end of the bat. The batsmen decide to go for the second. JP fires a flat and a good throw at the bowler's end and Morris makes no mistake. Dhoni is on strike. Bhuvneshwar run out (Duminy/ Morris) 5(7)

4

Morris to Dhoni, FOUR, slow, short and wide outside off. All the recipes to be punished. Dhoni waits for the ball to arrive and cuts it powerfully over backward point
