42.4 - V Philander to J Bumrah
OUT! South Africa go 1-0 up! Philander has 6 and he has sent India reeling. Almost a similar delivery to the previous one, Bumrah too, lunges to this one and opens the face of his bat. Gets an outside edge to second slip again and Faf du Plessis takes another catch. Only this time, he has to dive forward. SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 72 RUNS!
42.3 - V Philander to M Shami
OUT! Gone next ball. Outside off, Shami comes forward and opens the face of the bat slightly, looking to push it to the off side. Ends up getting an edge and Faf du Plessis does the rest at second slip, falling over a bit to his left. South Africa a wicket away from giving us a holiday tomorrow...
42.2 - V Philander to M Shami
FOUR! Confident shot! On middle and off, Shami comes forward and chips it over mid on and gets a boundary! Some confidence that!
42.1 - V Philander to R Ashwin
OUT! That is a terrific catch and the big Vern gets the breakthrough! What a brilliant field change and it has done the trick. Quinton de Kock was asked to come up to the stumps for this ball and he obeyed his captain. Philander bowled this outside off and Ashwin looked to punch it to the off side. He got a thick outside edge and a sharp one. But Quinton de Kock took it brilliantly and straightaway threw the ball up in the air in jubilation. Philander did not even bother to appeal and the umpire was smart. Did not give it out. Ashwin was smarter. Did not walk. Then QdK appealed and up went the finger! The 49-run stand is broken.

41.6 - K Maharaj to R Ashwin
Played through mid-wicket by the batsman. They pick up a single.
41.5 - K Maharaj to R Ashwin
More runs! Ashwin is playing well here. A length ball outside off, the off spinner runs this one from the other off spinner past the first slip fielder towards third man for another couple. 78 more to win now!
41.4 - K Maharaj to R Ashwin
Lucky! Tossed up outside off, Ashwin comes down the track and looks to drive but the ball goes off the outside edge, wide of first slip towards third man! The fielder gets to the ball near the ropes from backward point and keeps the batsmen down to two.
41.3 - K Maharaj to B Kumar
Pushes this towards mid on, takes Kagiso Rabada on, goes for the single, the shout is 'KG'! from the keeper, the throw comes in at the non-striker's end. But the action ends as the ball does not hit the stumps. Kumar was in anyways.
41.2 - K Maharaj to B Kumar
Full and outside off, Kumar comes forward and opens the face of the bat and dabs it towards short third man.
41.1 - K Maharaj to B Kumar
Full on middle and leg, clipped to the leg side.
