  • Thanks to this win, the last match on this tour for India won't be a dead rubber. Both teams have equal chance of winning this series now. One can look at it this way - South Africa won the Test series, India won the ODIs; so whoever will win this one will boast of winning the contest 2-1. Do join us on Saturday at 1800 local (1600 GMT) for the all-important game in Cape Town. Until then, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!
  • Victorious South Africa captain, JP Duminy is delighted with the win and hopes to take the momentum into the next game. Praises his bowlers for a good show in the Powerplay, although they lost way in the last 5. He is satisfied with the way they batted and is thrilled with the performance of Heinrich Klaasen. Feels to be ahead on the DL method gave them the extra push to be right up with their scoring rate and it helped them to bat with freedom. On the shorter boundaries, he smiles and comments that they tried to make the batsmen hit towards the longer part of the ground. Hopes to put up a spectacle in the final T20I.
  • Man of the Match, Heinrich Klaasen is all smiles and considers it a special feeling to do at his home ground. Adds that they didn't get this type of surface and is glad to get one today. Mentions that they wanted to put the Indian bowlers under pressure. Also says that, he is feeling comfortable with his game at the moment and is enjoying his cricket.
  • India skipper, Virat Kohli feels it was a tough one for the bowlers. Praises Manish Pandey and Suresh Raina for their knocks and also mentions about Dhoni's impactful innings. Believes the constant drizzle made it tough for the bowlers to grip the ball. Considers it a tough day for them and commends the knocks of Klaasen and Duminy. When asked whether he felt that the umpires should have taken the players off the field, the Indian skipper replies that either it had to happen in the first innings and when it didn't happen it's fair to carry on in the second innings, considers it good for the spectators. Adds that it was not a case of shorter boundary and reiterates that the wet conditions didn't help them. Signs off by saying that they are looking forward to the last match.
  • Nothing much to talk about India's bowling and believe me that's been a rarity on this tour. All their bowlers struggled to stop the run flow and pick wickets at regular intervals. Against Klaasen specially, they looked completely out of sorts. Yuzvendra Chahal was a marked man tonight. Went for aplenty and Heinrich Klaasen showed extra affinity towards him - Hammered 41 off 12 balls at a strike rate of 341.66. Carnage.
  • Now, let's talk about the class of Heinrich Klaasen. What a find he has been for the home team! The chase as usual stuttered early on once they lost their openers but the wicketkeeper batsman got a promotion in the batting order and he grabbed it with both hands. He snatched the drifting momentum by the scruff of the neck and forced it back in his side's favour. His 69 off 30 balls was studded with 7 sixes which shows the magnitude of his knock. Not to forget the role of skipper JP Duminy, who had no issues in playing second fiddle to Klaasen. But once he departed, JP took the onus on himself and along with Farhaan Behardien finished off the chase with 8 balls to spare. The winning shot and his huge roar summed up how badly he and his team needed this win.
  • Gone are the days when the rain and Duckworth-Lewis method used to hamper South Africa's progress. First at the Bullring in the ODIs and now here in Centurion, the Proteas have done something unimaginable. In fact, the threat of rain powered South Africa's chase. The approach they adopted to be on par with the DL method helped their scoring rate immensely and eventually they ended on the right side of the result.
  • Stop the press! Stop whatever you're doing. South Africa have managed to win a game. Shocked? Even we are. But one cannot take anything away from their effort. Have you seen a spring? You can push it down and down and down, and then there comes a moment when it bounces back. Something of similar sorts happened with the Proteas. They were down and out, under the cosh, written off and all of a sudden, boom...they emerged victorious! From the series point of view, it's now on level terms and makes the final T20I something to look forward to...
  • 18.4SIX! Here it is! JP Duminy has finished it off in style! Unadkat delivers it on a fuller length, in line of the stumps, JP clears his front leg and deposits it over long on for a maximum. The skipper roars in delight. SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 6 WICKETS with more than one over to spare! Also, this is now the highest run chase in Centurion.
  • 18.3SIX! Boom! Unadkat probably attempts for the yorker but it has gone horribly wrong. Ends up being a full toss, JP gives the charge and pumps it over mid-wicket for a maximum. One more such blow needed.
  • 18.2Flashes and flashes hard! Width on offer outside off, Farhaan throws his bat at it and edges it down to third man for one.
  • 18.2Wide! Loses his radar completely and bowls it way wide outside off, Behardien leaves it.
  • 18.1Runs in from around the wicket and angles in a back of a length ball outside off. Behardien swings and gets it away from the inner half of the bat. It races through square leg for a couple.
  • Jaydev Unadkat is back on.
  • 17.6FOUR! Duminy reaches his 10th T20I fifty in a streaky manner. A length ball around leg, JP swings his bat and inside edges it past the stumps and the keeper for a boundary at fine leg. 16 needed off 12! 173/4
  • 17.5Short and pulled across the line for a single.
  • 17.4In the air...safe! Full and wide outside off, Duminy lofts it over covers and it goes on one drop to Kumar in the deep. Should have gone for the catch, many would think. A single added.
  • 17.3The batsman drives this through the covers. One run added to the total.
  • 17.2Shortish and around off, Behardien shuffles across and nudges it to fine leg for a couple.
  • 17.1Duminy plays a pull shot to this short delivery. The batsmen have run through for a single.

  • 16.5Bouncer! The batsman ducks under the bouncer at the last moment.
  • 16.4Good length ball on middle, Duminy flicks it gently through mid-wicket and scampers back for the second run. Doing it risk free.

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar is back on. 33 needed off 24 balls.
  • 15.6DROPPED! When it's not your day, it's not your day. Tossed up ball on middle, Behardien is deceived in flight and lofts his shot straight back. It goes through Chahal's hands towards long off. A couple to end the over. 13 from it, 0/64, overall runs conceded by the leggie. Really a forgetful night. 156/4
  • 15.6Wide! Way wide outside off, short in length, Behardien chases and misses.
  • 15.5The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 15.4SIX! Tonk! It was a biggie the moment it left his bat. Flighted and full, right in the arc for the batsman, Farhaan kneels and nails his slog sweep. It goes in the crowd sitting on the grass banks.
  • 15.3Flighted again, landing outside leg, a strange attempt, Behardien doesn't offer any shot and wears it on his body.
  • 15.2Stumping chance missed! Oh dear... Wasn't easy but Dhoni is known to make impossible possible. A flighted leg spinner landing on middle, Duminy advances down the track but fails to put bat on ball. It brushes his pads and goes behind. Dhoni tries to collect the ball by going low but fails. They cross for a leg bye.
  • 15.1FOUR! Poor delivery and Dhoni screams in anguish. Short and wide outside off, Duminy attacks it with all his might and bludgeons it through covers for a boundary.
  • Chahal returns for his final over. That's a big chance taken by Kohli.
  • 14.6Short again, well-directed, Duminy pulls it down to fine leg for a run. A terrific over by Pandya, 6 runs and a wicket from it! 142/4
  • Farhaan Behardien is in next.
  • 14.5OUT! Pandya delivers for India, Miller holes out! Big moment in this match. A short ball around off, David tries to wheel a pull shot but gets a top edge. It flies down to fine leg where Thakur moves forward to take the catch safely. 48 needed from 31 balls. This is getting close now.
  • 14.4A touch short in length on middle, Miller helps it through mid-wicket and collects a couple.
  • Here comes the rain. South Africa are ahead on the DLS method.
  • 14.3An attempted yorker, reaches the batsman on the full, Duminy forces it down to long on for one.
  • 14.2A little bit of width on offer outside off, Miller eases it down to third man for a run.
  • 14.1Gently works a length ball on the leg side, in front of square leg and they cross.
  • Hardik Pandya is back on, replacing Chahal who is having a forgetful evening, 0/51 in 3 overs.
  • 13.6Once again it's on the shorter side around middle, JP clips it to backward square leg for a run. 136/3
  • 13.5Back of a length delivery on off, 127 kph, tapped to point for a run.
  • 13.5Wide for height! Bouncer which goes over the head of the batsman.
  • 13.4Slower length ball on off, Duminy helps it on the leg side and looks for a run. A slight hesitation shown by Miller initially but then he responds. Unadkat reaches the ball but misses his shy at the striker's end. Had he hit, Miller would have been a goner.
  • 13.3Gets back and plays it in the gap at point for one.
  • 13.2Turns it off his pads to the leg side but finds the mid-wicket fielder.
  • David Miller is the new batsman.
  • 13.1OUT! Against the run of play, India have a wicket, that too, a big one. Heinrich Klaasen is on his way back to the pavilion. Unadkat returns in the attack and angles in a slower length ball in line of the stumps. Klaasen backs away to swing it over the leg side but fails to get proper connection. It takes a thin edge to the keeper and Dhoni makes no mistake. They appeal and the finger goes up. What a knock by Heinrich, he has put South Africa on the front foot! Also, the 93-run stand off 49 balls is over. Carnage.
  • 12.6SIX! Duminy joins the party! Sits down on one knee and slog sweeps it with the spin. All the way it goes over mid-wicket for half a dozen. They have targeted the leggie here and it has paid off. 23 from this over, 39 in last two of Chahal. 58 needed off 42 balls. 131/2
  • 12.5The batsman goes after this one but misses the line completely.
  • 12.4Quicker delivery, flat and short around leg, Klaasen gets back to heave it over the leg side but it takes the inside edge and ricochets off the pads to point. A single taken.
  • 12.3FOUR! Klaasen is putting on a show! This time he brings out the reverse-batted shot and goes with the spin. Makes sweet connection and clears the point fielder inside the ring.
  • 12.2SIX! Chahal switches to over the wicket but it doesn't matter. The length is on the shorter side and Klaasen powers his pull over mid-wicket for a biggie.
  • 12.1SIX! Out of here! Chahal tries his luck from round the wicket. Bowls it full and around leg, Klaasen picks it up and smokes it over mid-wicket for a maximum. There was a certain amount of arrogance in this shot.
  • 11.6Works a length ball from around off to deep square leg and rushes back for the second run. A weak throw reaches to the bowler who is not at all impressed. Kohli is also livid with the effort. Pressure on India. 81 needed from 48! 108/2
  • 11.5Pitches it full and outside off, Heinrich drives it down to long off for a run.
  • 11.4Another swing and a miss by Klaasen. He needs to calm down a bit. Things are under control at the moment.
  • 11.3Play and a miss! Pandya slants in a length ball around middle and leg, Klaasen makes space and tries to swing it over the leg side. He misses and the keeper collects the ball. Pandya appeals while Klaasen is outside the crease in search of a run. He is sent back as Dhoni misses his shy.
  • 11.2FOUR! Fine shot! Reaches his maiden T20I fifty in style, off just 22 balls. A short in length ball on middle and leg, Klaasen gets inside the line and pulls it over short fine leg for a boundary. What a knock this has been!
  • 11.1Angles it away from the batsman, on a length, Duminy guides it to third man and crosses.
  • Hardik Pandya is back.
  • 10.6100 up for South Africa! Flighted and outside off, Duminy drove it to long off for a run. 16 from the over! 100/2
  • 10.5Advances down the track and forces a full ball down to long on for one.
  • 10.4SIX! That's brutal! The home lad is in the mood. Shapes up for the reverse-batted shot even before the bowler has delivered. It turns out to be a low full toss in his half and he absolutely blazes it over point for a biggie.
  • 10.3Flighted and full outside off, driven towards extra cover for a single. A needless shy at the non-striker's end, it hit the stumps and deflected in the deep. No extra run taken.
  • 10.2Flatter and shorter on middle, a mistimed punch down to long off for a run.
  • 10.1FOUR! Lovely hit! Chahal does everything right to follow the batsman down the leg side but Klaasen has shown his class there. He still manages to loft it with the spin and clears the rope at covers. 50-run stand comes up!
  • Yuzvendra Chahal is back on. India scored 103 in the last 10, South Africa need two more than that for a win.
  • 9.6Drops it on a length around off, Klaasen goes hard at it and gets it away off the inside edge. It speeds through square leg for a run. Just 4 from the over, a good one for India. We have reached the halfway mark, India were 85/3 at this stage. Neck and neck at the moment. 84/2
  • 9.5Straighter in line, helped towards short fine leg where Unadkat made a diving stop. A single taken.
  • 9.4Delivers it very full and on middle, Klaasen swings his bat and gets an inside edge. It runs down to fine leg for one.
  • 9.3Shortish and outside off, cut from the back foot to sweeper cover for a run.
  • 9.2Howzzat? Back of a length delivery on middle, Duminy tries to work it on the leg side but misses. It goes past him making some noise and the Indian fielders make noise after that while appealing for a catch. Nothing from the umpire again. Brushed his pads, the replays confirm.
  • 9.1Lands it on a full length outside off, Duminy drives it off his front foot to covers.
  • Shardul Thakur returns.
  • 8.6FOUR! Klaasen is playing a blinder here. Short in length around middle, Heinrich makes space and spanks it over mid-wicket for a boundary. 80/2
  • 8.5Follows the batsman down the leg side, fuller in length, Klaasen hits it down the ground to wide long on and scampers back for the second run. JP nearly tumbled while turning for the second.
  • 8.4Pushed to the cover region by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 8.3Appeal only from the bowler, the umpire remains unmoved. A length ball around leg, angling away, Duminy gets across to work it on the leg side but misses. It brushes his pads on its way to Dhoni and Pandya chirps in appeal. Nothing doing. Replays show, it pitched outside leg.
  • Drizzle has stopped. Mid off is coming in.
  • 8.2Grunts and lets out a back of a length delivery on top of the off stump, Klaasen runs it down to third man for a run.
  • 8.2Wide called for height! Pandya senses the charge from the batsman and digs in a short ball. Klaasen sways away at the last moment. Good take by Dhoni.
  • 8.1A length ball around leg, Duminy turns it behind square leg and jogs across to the other end.
  • 7.6Slower through the air, on middle, Duminy moves back and nudges it towards square leg for a single. 70/2
  • 7.5Flighted on middle, eased down to long on for one. South Africa are ahead now on the DL count.
  • 7.4Chahal still shows the heart to toss it up. Lands it full on off, Heinrich tries slogging again but gets a top edge down to third man. A couple taken. South Africa are on par now.
  • 7.3SIX! A flighted full ball on middle, this time Klaasen clears his front leg and muscles his heave over mid-wicket for a biggie. He has the license to go after the leggie here.
  • 7.2Tossed up ball on middle, Duminy jumps out of the crease and hits it with the spin through mid-wicket for one. 68 is the par score after this over. Can SA get there?
  • 7.1Loopy full ball on middle, Klaasen tries slogging across the line but ends up dragging it off the inner half of the bat. It races to deep mid-wicket and they take a run.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal it is.
  • 6.6Edged but safe! On a length and outside off, Klaasen throws his bat at it and gets it away off the outside edge. It loops in the air towards third man, Thakur runs across to his right, didn't charge forward and collects it on one bounce. A run taken to end the over, 8 from it. 58/2
  • 6.5Back of a length delivery on middle, Duminy fails to work it around and it goes behind off his thigh pad. Wide of the keeper and they steal a leg bye.
  • 6.4Wicket to wicket line, on a length, Klaasen pushes it towards mid off and pinches a run.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal is warming up.
  • 6.3On a length around middle, slower in pace, Duminy tickles it through backward square leg for one.
  • 6.2Beaten! Back of a length delivery outside off, once again width on offer, Duminy rather than hitting it through the line, tries playing the cross-batted heave. Fails to connect.
  • 6.1FOUR! Pandya is welcomed with a boundary. A poor delivery, short and wide outside off, Duminy latches onto it and whacks it through backward point for a boundary.
  • Hardik Pandya is brought into the attack.
  • 5.6Either a six or a miss! That's what happened in this over. A slower one outside off, the keeper batsman is deceived as he swishes and misses. 12 from the over! 50/2
  • 5.5SIX! That's a mighty hit! Four needed at the end of this over for South Africa to stay on par with the DL method. Good length ball angling into the batsman, around off, Klaasen chances his arms and sends it packing over mid-wicket for a maximum.
  • 5.4Another slower one, a leg cutter outside off, Heinrich attempts to run it down but misses.
  • 5.3Slower one outside off, staying low, Klaasen pokes at it and misses.
  • 5.2SIX! Shot! Right from the middle of the bat. Unadkat delivers it short and it sits up at a nice height for the batsman. Klaasen positions himself nicely inside the crease and smashes it over mid-wicket for half a dozen.
  • 5.1Play and a miss! A length ball outside off, Klaasen pushes at it and misses. Stayed a bit low too.
  • Heinrich Klaasen is in next.
  • 4.6OUT! This will hurt South Africa's chances, they are behind by 9 runs as per the DL method now. A good length ball around off, Hendricks swings his bat across the line but mistimes his shot in the air towards deep mid-wicket. A simple catch for Hardik Pandya in the deep. That was a knuckle ball, shows the replay. The Indian bowlers are using this variation to good effect of late. 38/2
  • 4.6Wide! Thakur goes short but bowls it way wide outside off. Hendricks allows it through.
  • Rain is getting heavy.
  • 4.5FOUR! This will help! Slower ball, angling into the batsman around middle and leg, Reeza tries heaving it over the leg side but gets an outside edge down to third man.
  • 4.4Hits a length ball down to mid on for a run. Need to be 42 at this stage, as per DLS method. Still behind.
  • 4.3Once again a slower delivery has been worked in the gap at backward square leg. Two taken. Are they playing for the DL target?
  • 4.2Slower one this time, on the pads, it's nudged through backward square leg for a brace.
  • 4.1FOUR! JP making his intentions clear. A length ball around off, Duminy sizes his hitting area and muscles it over mid on for a boundary.
  • 3.6Beaten! Good length delivery outside off, Hendricks pushes at it but it stays low and beats the inside edge. 9 runs but more importantly a wicket from it for India. 24/1
  • JP Duminy in at number 3.
  • 3.5OUT! Clever change in pace and JJ Smuts is completely fooled. An off pace delivery, a little short around off, 117 kph, Smuts attacks forward, tries to play a cross-batted shot but realizes very late that the ball is coming at him quite slowly. He is already halfway through and then tries to pull out. Fails to do so as the ball takes the top edge and balloons in the air. Raina comes running forward at covers and completes the catch. Good comeback by Unadkat. India draw first blood.
  • 3.4Stays round the wicket for Smuts as well. Delivers it on a length around off, JJ attempts to power it over the leg side, fails to middle his shot and ends up pushing it towards mid on.
  • 3.3Unadkat changes his angle and comes from round the wicket. Bowls a back of a length delivery, around off, Hendricks rises on his back leg and steers it past backward point for a single.
  • 3.2FOUR! Is this the over for South Africa? This time Unadkat is on the shorter side outside off, begging to be hit and Reeza through his lovely hands puts it away through cover-point.
  • 3.1FOUR! Up and over! Not in control though. It's bowled on a length around off, Hendricks tries to play a lofted shot through the line but ends up slicing it off the edge over point.
  • Jaydev Unadkat comes into the attack.
  • 2.6On a length and just around off, Smuts punches it back to the bowler. 11 from Bhuvi's over. 15/0
  • 2.5RH steers it past the man at point to get to the other end.

  • 2.3JJ gets back and works it through the leg side for a single.
  • 2.2The batsman flicks it away with a wristy shot. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 2.1FOUR! First boundary for SA! On a length and just outside off, Hendricks looks to cut it away but gets it off the edge over backward point. The man in the deep gets to the ball but makes a meal out it to to concede a boundary.
  • 1.6Once again Smuts is in two minds! Sees the short ball and tries to pull it away but at the last moment changes his mind and drops his wrists to leave it alone in the end. Silent start for the hosts. 4/0
  • 1.5On a length and outside off, it stays a touch low too and foxes the batsman completely. Good start for Thakur.
  • 1.4Reeza knocks it towards Unadkat at mid on and calls through for a single. The India pacer has a shy at the bowler's end but misses.
  • 1.3Length ball on middle and leg, worked away through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 1.2Shortish ball outside off, Smuts initially decides to go for the pull but then drops his wrists at the last moment to make a leave.
  • 1.1Starts off with a good length ball on the pads, Reeza gets inside the line and tucks it away towards fine leg for one.
  • Shardul Thakur to share the new ball with Kumar.
  • 0.6On a back of a length outside off, Smuts punches it towards cover but fails to get it through the gap. Just a single from the first over. South Africa started with a maiden, almost a similar start. 1/0
  • 0.5South Africa are underway. Hendricks pats a length ball towards cover and calls through. Kumar goes after it, turns and has a shy at his end but misses.
  • 0.4This is tidy stuff from Kumar! He lands it on a length, closer to the off stump channel, Hendricks tries to dab it away but the misses. It wasn't far away from kissing the outside edge.
  • 0.3Taps this length delivery away on the off side. Wants a single but won't get it.
  • 0.2Beaten! On a length and just outside off, this time it holds its line Reeza tries to push it away but fails to make contact.
  • 0.1Starts with an inswinger, shaping back in on middle and leg, Hendricks looks to flick it away but gets it off the inside edge towards square leg.
  • Chase time! JJ Smuts and Reeza Hendricks are the Protea openers. Fresh from a fifer, Bhuvneshwar Kumar to kickoff proceedings. Just a slip in place. Here we go...
