  • 15:47(IST)

    Over 31: South Africa 214/2 (Du Plessis 65, De Villiers 12)

    Kohli starts good by not giving divided a boundary. Three singles and a dual make adult a damage.  That’s a win for India during this point.

  • 15:44(IST)

    Dhoni has motionless Kohli is a best choice during this indicate and tosses him a ball.

  • 15:43(IST)

    Over 30: South Africa 209/2 (Du Plessis 62, De Villiers 10)

    A neat over from Axar. Just 4 from it.

  • 15:41(IST)

    Over 29: South Africa 205/2 (Du Plessis 59, De Villiers 9)

    De Villiers hull what was a neat over from Raina by depositing a final round of a over into a throng behind a midwicket fence. That also brings adult South Africa’s 200 in a 29th over. If a manners hadn’t changed, 400 would be on a cards though with 5 fielders in a low for a final 10 overs, 350 seems some-more realistic.


  • 15:37(IST)

    Over 28: South Africa 195/2 (Du Plessis 56, De Villiers 2)

    Dhoni takes a event to pierce behind Axar Patel and Faf smashes him for SIX over a covers. Harbhajan and Raina have been a usually dual bowlers who can reason their heads adult high so distant today.


  • 15:35(IST)

    While a wicket is something to applaud for India, it also brings AB de Villiers to a crease. A uninformed AB de Villiers.

  • 15:33(IST)

    Over 26.5: South Africa 187/2 (Du Plessis 50)

    Du Plessis scoops Raina to low glorious leg for a integrate of runs to pierce to 49 and afterwards gets to his fourth fifty of a array with a chipped singular to long-on. Taken him 61 balls and usually contains 4 boundaries. He has finished a tough work of holding singles and twos.

    OUT! De Kock’s glorious innings come to an end. Comes down a lane to Raina though doesn’t get to a representation of a round and slices it to Kohli during long-off.  The part-timer has a breakthrough.

  • 15:29(IST)

    Over 26: South Africa 183/1 (De Kock 108, Du Plessis 47)

    Mishra drags one down and Faf is discerning to stone behind and lift him to low midwicket.

    DROPPED! Two balls later, Faf goes for another slog-sweep and a round bursts by Rahane’s hands during brief midwicket. A half-chance goes begging.

  • 15:26(IST)

    Over 25: South Africa 176/1 (De Kock 107, Du Plessis 41)

    Four singles from Raina’s over. Would have been 3 though for a misfield during mid-off from a final round of a over. The feverishness contingency be removing to India as well, generally given they are underneath a cosh.

  • 15:22(IST)

    No warn to see Raina given a ball. Dhoni had to do something.

The Proteas gait conflict has not been during a really best on a Indian tracks, though gifted Dale Steyn and immature Kagiso Rabada have still been effective. Rabada valid his intensity to play in a genocide overs and will be a one to watch out for in a high-voltage clash.
