  • That's all we have to offer from this game. The Indians have dominated the South Africans like they do when playing at home. Spin, strangely, has been the talk of this limited overs series. The home side batsmen seem like treading on fire when facing spin. There are three more games in this ODI series left. They would now treat this as a three-match series. AB de Villiers is expected to be back though only time will confirm the same. Will the story be same even then? Remember, the 4th one is the Pink ODI. It will be played on the 10th of February, 2018 at 1300 local time (1100 GMT). See ya then. Adios, take care!
  • Virat Kohli, the winning captain, is also the Man of the Match. He says that although he didn't start off well, he knew he had to stick it out in the middle for his side to get to a good total. States that the new ball was coming onto the bat nicely. Adds that after 30 overs, the track slowed down considerably due to which they had to adjust their target accordingly. Mentions that it is pleasing to lead from the front. Credits Shikhar Dhawan for his innings. Lauds Bhuvneshwar Kumar's efforts with the bat as well. States that he battled cramps when he was in the 90s. Iterates that when the wrist spinners land it in the right areas, they get rewarded. Adds further that this was a surface touted to not favour them yet they have done well to pick up 8 between them. Talks about maintaining the intensity in the further games even after knowing that the Proteas can't come back to win the series.
  • Time for the presentation. Aiden Markram, the losing skipper, is first up. He reckons that this was a very disappointing outing yet again. Credits Virat Kohli and the opposition spinners for their exploits. States that they were always in the game when on field. Says that the final target was a gettable one but laments the batting failure yet again for the loss. Mentions that the opposing spiners are of a very good quality and hence, even after three outings they are on the wrong side of things. Is hopefully pleased with AB de Villiers return in the next game.
  • Picture this. South Africa's team total is just 19 runs more than what Virat Kohli managed. Dominance is writ large here. This game meted out in a similar fashion to that of the female colts. There, a certain Smriti Mandhana, wearing jersey no.18, stroked her way to a century. Here, a certain Kohli with the same number on the back of his t-shirt, did that. It was a magnanimous win there and so it is here. A wrist spinner, Poonam Yadav, picked up a four-fer in that game, while here, we had two doing the same.
  • However, Markram's fall opened the floodgates and then wickets came falling like water from an open tap. Only Khaya Zondo and David Miller stayed in the middle for considerable time. But then, nobody seemed to have answers to what Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav were throwing at them. The latter got his first ODI four-fer in the process. Jasprit Bumrah did his I-am-present-teacher thing by picking up a couple of useful scalps.
  • A sense of deja vu gets to us as we have a look at the way the game panned. 18-1-69-8 read the combined figures of the spin twins. Rest assured, there is no further confirmation needed as to who were the wreckers in chief for the tourists. South Africa started poorly losing Hashim Amla pretty early. But Aiden Markram and Jean-Paul Duminy set about with their tasks in right earnest. They stitched together a 78-run stand, which was the only one over 50 for the hosts.
  • 39.6OUT! How silent was this wicket! Dhoni told Kuldeep to bowl the other one and he does. Lands it on middle and gets it to turn away. Ngidi swipes across the line but misses the ball completely. The players don't even bother appealing. The umpire raises the finger. Hold on, Hawk Eye shows the ball to be PASSING OVER THE STUMPS. The hosts didn't have any review left, though. INDIA WIN BY 124 RUNS AND TAKE AN UNASSAILABLE 3-0 LEAD IN THE SERIES!
  • 39.5FOUR! Yadav comes round the wicket and tosses this up. Lungi goes with the spin and hits it over mid-wicket. The ball lands just in front of the ropes, the fielder after it signals that to the umpire but it's still given as a biggie. Then he goes upstairs to find that the ball indeed bounced before the rope. Umpire Adrian Holdstock corrects his mistake.
  • 39.4A flatter googly outside off, Ngidi misses it completely.
  • 39.3A low full toss outside off, just clears mid off. Gets a couple for that.
  • 39.2The batsman was beaten and missed the line of the delivery.
  • 39.1Tossed up around middle, Lungi lunges to turn but misses to get hit on the pads. The players appeal to no avail.
  • 38.6Flatter on middle and leg, Rabada looks to block but gets a leading edge to the off side. 173/9
  • 38.5SIX! Ho, ho, ho... it's a beauty! Flighted ball around middle, Rabada gets down on a knee and goes with the spin. Makes nice contact as the ball clears the deep mid-wicket fence with ease. Just the second six off this innings.
  • Debutant Lungi Ngidi is the last man in.
  • 38.4OUT! The party has ended. Chahal is not afraid to toss it up yet again. Tahir gets down on a knee to slog it out of Cape Town but fails to even clear the 30-yard circle. Finds Kohli at mid on with the skier. This is Chahal's fourth wicket.
  • 38.3The batsman fails to put bat on ball.
  • 38.2FOUR! The best shot from a South African in this innings has come from the no.10, quips my partner. Tahir dances down to this tossed up ball and hits it straight over the bowler's head for a boundary.
  • 38.1Flatter on the pads, turned through square leg for one.
  • 37.6Googly outside off, Imran is some years away from picking that. Misses it and MS whips off the bails but the batsman's back foot is firmly grounded. 162/8
  • 37.5Floated around off and middle, Imran looks to turn it to the on side but gets a leading edge towards point.
  • 37.4FOUR! Nice way to get off the mark. A low full toss outside off, Tahir reaches out to that and drives it square on the off side. The ball has enough in it to go to the fence.
  • Imran Tahir walks out next.
  • 37.3OUT! Ever heard a strict mother warning her ward to not accept lollipops from strangers? Such an instruction should be given to the South African batsmen as well. Yadav tosses this up nicely outside off, Phehlukwayo fails to resist the temptation to go after that. Looks to hoick it over the on side but gets a top edge. Kohli runs forward from covers and accepts it gleefully. India need another 2 wickets to be 3-0 at the end of this game.
  • 37.2Flatter and quicker on off, Andile goes back to cut but is lucky to slice it towards point.
  • 37.1Floated up full around off, Andile gets down and plays the reverse sweep. Gets it towards third man for a couple.
  • 36.6FOUR! How did that miss the stumps? Floated up around middle and leg, the ball spins in sharply. Rabada looks to drive that but gets an inside edge past the stumps for a boundary. 156/7
  • 36.5This ball is punched through covers for one.
  • 36.4Yuzvendra comes back over the wicket and serves it around leg. Kagiso sweeps it through square leg for a single.
  • 36.3Beauty. Tossed up ball from outside off, Rabada strides forward to defend but gets beaten on the inside.
  • 36.2Chahal comes round the wicket and lands it around off, wristed away to mid-wicket.
  • 36.1OUT! My partner here, Praky, wonders if Kohli had held his spinners back just to get some night allowance. He had the chance to go for the kill earlier but he didn't. Now he has brought both of them back and each has struck. Chahal tosses this one up around off, Zondo gets down to slog it away. Gets a top edge, the ball goes up, touches eternity and comes down to Pandey, the sub, at covers. As easy as it gets. The end is nigh for the hosts now. Third wicket for Yuzvendra.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal is back as well.
  • 35.6Lovely. Lands around off, Phehlukwayo goes back to defend. The ball just spins away to square him up completely. 150/6
  • 35.5Floated outside off, driven to covers.
  • 35.4This ball is reverse swept to point.
  • 35.3Flatter delivery, it goes straight on after pitching. Phehlukwayo fails to pick it up. The ball just passes over the stumps.
  • Andile Phehlukwayo is the next batter in.
  • 35.2OUT! As plumb as it gets. Morris is done with playing his shot during breakfast while the ball is served for lunch. He gets across the stumps and wears it on the box as he missed his pull. An appeal is just a formality as the finger is raised immediately. 154 off 88 needed as Chris walks back vigorously shaking his head. Not sure if it is because of him missing the ball completely or if someone from the opposite camp had something to say to him.
  • 35.1Wrong 'un on the pads to start, Khaya gets down and sweeps it to fine leg for one. 150 up for South Africa.
  • Kuldeep Yadav is back on. Is he here to hasten the end?
  • 34.6Short in length, pulled away to fine leg for one. 7 runs off the over. 149/5
  • 34.5This ball is blasted to long on for one.
  • 34.4Fuller in length at 113 kph, Morris looks to work it through the on side but gets it off the inner half towards fine leg for a brace.
  • 34.3This ball is pushed past backward point for one.
  • 34.2On a length outside off, Chris opens the face of the bat to guide it through point for one.
  • 34.1Full outside off, sliced over covers for one. Zondo always wanted a second but Morris wasn't on the same page.
  • Drinks! 162 more needed off 96 balls. South Africa are losing their way yet again. They lost the momentum when the spin twins came on and here they are, staring at yet another defeat. India, well, they are just a blow away from being 3-0 up. 5 more wickets to be taken. How long will it take? Do we have a twist in the tale? Hardik Pandya to run in now...
  • 33.6Khaya taps it to the off side and gets to the other end to face the first ball of the next over. 142/5
  • 33.5Short and wide, cut away to deep point for one.
  • 33.4This ball is hit straight to the man at covers.
  • 33.3On the pads yet again, flicked away through square leg for a brace.
  • 33.2FOUR! Shot. Talk about the followthrough of the blades and the extension of the arms and the presence of the high elbows... this shot had it all. Fuller ball outside off, Morris gets his front foot forward and drives it through covers. The mid off fielder ran to his right but couldn't do much once the ball passed him.
  • 33.1Length ball on the pads, flicked away to fine leg for one.
  • 32.6Tucked away through backward square leg for one. Successful over for Jasprit. 133/5
  • 32.5Fuller around middle and leg, wristed through mid-wicket for three.
  • 32.4Fuller around off, driven to covers.
  • Chris Morris strides out to bat next. Ability to take the side home, there. Can he do it?
  • 32.3OUT! This was always on the cards, wasn't it? Miller was fishing outside the off stump in the past couple of overs and now, although this isn't the same action, the edge is induced nevertheless. Bumrah runs in from round the wicket and delivers a length ball angling in to the batsman. David looks to pull it off the front foot. Wrongly positioned and a wrong choice of shot as well as the ball wasn't really short. What's more, he advanced down the track as well. All he managed to do was get an inside edge through to the keeper. That's that. The Indians appeal, get the umpire's nod and the southpaw doesn't even bother to wait. The Proteas still need 175 runs in just 105 balls.
  • 32.2Slanting in on a length, Khaya misses the flick. The ball rolls towards backward square leg and a leg bye is taken.
  • 32.1Fuller outside off, steered towards backward point.
  • 31.6On a length, flicked through mid-wicket. Pandya charges to the ball and returns a fairly quick throw but is unable to prevent the brace there. 176 more needed off 108 balls. 128/4
  • 31.5Miller has a feel for a length delivery angling away yet again. Misses.
  • 31.4This ball is driven through covers for a single.
  • 31.3Landed on a length around off and middle, Khaya looks to run as soon as he flicks it. Rohit from mid-wicket charges in and hits the stumps at the batter's end even as Zondo makes it in. The stumps light up although the bails don't come off. No run taken.
  • 31.2This ball is hit straight to the point fielder.
  • 31.1Full outside off, driven straight to the man at mid off.
  • Pandya was ready to bowl another over, but Kohli changes his mind. Decides to bring Bhuvneshwar Kumar on.
  • 30.6Outside off, pushed towards point. 125/4
  • 30.5144 kph reads the speedometer. Length ball around off, Miller hops but misses the tuck. Wears it high on the front pad. The Indians appeal to no avail.
  • 30.4Hurled fuller at 119 kph, David read that well and defended it back to the bowler.
  • 30.3Jasprit runs in from over the wicket, Miller comes down the track and punches it towards covers.
  • 30.2Fuller outside off, knocked to covers for one.
  • 30.2WIDE! Perhaps the seamers are trying to tuck Zondo up. In that pursuit, they are hurling deliveries on the pads or down the leg side. This one is sprayed down leg. Wided by the umpire.
  • 30.1Landed around middle and leg, turned away through mid-wicket for one.
  • 29.6Length ball slanting in, Zondo moves inside the line in a bid to flick it away but gets it off his thigh pads. Dhoni gets to his left and stops that. 122/4
  • 29.5Length ball around off at 142 kph. Zondo gets an inside edge onto the pads and the ball lands next to the pitch on the leg side. Pandya utters something on the lines of 'too quick for you..' to the batter as he goes to pick the ball up.
  • 29.4KZ defends this one off the back foot.
  • 29.3Short and wide, luckily for Pandya, it results in just two. Zondo camps back and cuts it aerially. The ball lands near the deep backward point fence as Pandey, the sub fielder, runs to his right from third man to do the mopping up job.
  • 29.3WIDE! Short and down the leg side, Zondo goes for the pull but misses. Wide signaled.
  • 29.2Fuller and around middle and leg, David works it away through square leg for one. Dhawan in the deep fumbles but doesn't concede an extra run.
  • 29.1Flashy! Won't help Miller. This one is hurled across the batter at 141 kph. The southpaw stands still and looks to flay it through the off side. Only makes contact with the thin air.
  • 28.6Played to the mid-wicket region by KZ. 118/4
  • 28.5Low full toss on middle, flicked away to mid-wicket.
  • 28.4This one is tucked away through square leg for a single.
  • 28.3FOUR! Streaky, Miller won't mind it. Banged short around leg, the southpaw swivels and pulls it. Gets a top edge through fine leg for a boundary.
  • 28.2Fuller this time, pushed away towards covers for nothing.
  • 28.1On a length going away, Miller stays back and slaps it past backward point for a brace.
  • Another change. Jasprit Bumrah is called up to bowl with some pace.
  • 27.6This one is guided through point to rotate strike. 111/4
  • 27.5Almost! Length ball slanting away from Miller, he has a poke at it only to get beaten by the finest of margins.
  • 27.4Length ball around middle and leg, Miller looks to work it to the on side. Gets a leading edge towards covers.
  • 27.3Angling away from the batsman, David stays back and keeps it out towards point.
  • 27.2On a length around middle and leg, Zondo looks to defend but gets an inside edge onto the pads. The ball rolls to the on side and he gets a single.
  • 27.1Length ball on leg, nudged away to fine leg for one.
  • Hardik Pandya is back on.
  • 26.6Flighted ball on a fuller length, driven to long off to retain strike. 108/4
  • 26.5Fuller around middle and leg, flicked away to short fine leg.
  • 26.4Floated around off, Miller gets forward to defend but gets a soft edge towards slip.
  • 26.3DM is nicely forward with a lunge and keeps it out.
  • 26.2Tossed up around off and middle, David prods and blocks.
  • 26.1He picked him, oh he picked him, exclaims our statsman, Vic. Floated around off, Miller lunges and lets it go by withdrawing his bat.
  • 25.6Swept away through square leg for a single. 107/4
  • 25.5Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 25.4Floated outside off, pushed back to the left of the bowler. Chahal cannot reach it with a dive and lets a single to be taken.
  • 25.3Around off, knocked through mid off to get to the other end.
  • 25.2Tossed up ball, Zondo comes down the track and drives it to long on for one.
  • 25.1Flatter on the pads, worked away through square leg for one.
  • Meanwhile, Kedar Jadhav has gone off the field. A groin niggle, reckons Shaun Pollock on air. We remember him flinching after fielding a ball at deep square leg after running there from fine leg earlier in the innings.
  • 24.6Yadav comes from around the wicket and pulls his length back a bit. It spins back in and Zondo goes on the back foot in defense. 102/4
  • 24.5Once again Khaya is on the front foot to a full ball and blocks it back.
  • 24.4This is better. Zondo lunges to a full ball around off and defends it.
  • 24.3Not a good idea, Zondo. He goes deep inside the crease to a full ball and blocks it at the last moment. Picking the spin from the pitch won't help. It won't give you enough time to react, Khaya. Get forward. Don't over-commit though.
  • 24.2Flighted and around off, Miller draws forward and drills his drive to long off for a single.
  • 24.1Jumps out of the crease and drives it uppishly back towards the bowler. Kuldeep dives to his left but fails to reach. It runs down to long off and they take a run.
  • 23.6This one is very full and on middle, it's worked through mid-wicket for a run. 100/4
  • 23.5Spinning away from the batsman, Zondo goes on the back foot and taps it wide of second slip.
  • Two slips in place for the right-hander.
  • 23.4Loopy and full around leg, Miller reverse sweeps it to point and takes a run.
  • 23.3Fuller and down the leg side, Miller eases it through square leg for a couple of runs.
  • 23.2Tossed up ball on off, Miller blocks it off his front leg.
  • 23.1Flighted and full on leg, Miller tries to flick but misses.
  • 22.6Allows the ball to spin back in and goes back in defense. Maiden! 96/4
  • 22.5This one is served full and wide outside off, Zondo drives but finds extra cover.
  • 22.4Another forward defense by Zondo. Don't think he is picking Kuldeep from his hand.
  • 22.3Gets forward to a full ball and defends.
  • 22.2Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 22.1Zondo has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 21.6Turning back into the batsman, Zondo leans to defend but it takes the inside edge and rolls to short fine leg for a run. 96/4
  • Khaya Zondo is the new batsman.
  • 21.5OUT! That's hitting leg and Duminy, the set batsman, has to depart. Body blow to South Africa's chances. Chahal has his second. Another traditional leg spinner has earned him a wicket. He lands it around off and gets it to spin back into the left-hander. Duminy stays back to flick it on the leg side but misses. It thuds him on the pads, they appeal and this time the umpire thinks a bit before lifting his finger. JP Duminy has a chat with his partner before taking the DRS. To the naked eye, we thought it could be missing or at the most clipping the leg stump but the Hawk Eye shows it to be hitting leg. The Indians are delighted. Once again they have the opportunity to run over the Proteas.
  • Shout for an lbw! Up goes the finger and JP Duminy reviews it. Spinning too much but is it missing leg?
  • 21.4Tossed up ball on middle, swept through square leg for a run.
  • 21.3Allows the ball to spin back in and works it through square leg for a couple.
  • 21.2Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. One run added to the total.
  • 21.1Short and outside off, cut straight to point.
  • 20.6Miller has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 91/3
  • 20.5The batsman has driven it through mid off.
  • 20.4Googly on middle, Miller inside edges it towards short fine leg.
  • 20.325th ODI fifty for JP Duminy, gets one after 17 innings. Fuller and on middle, Duminy clips it a bit aerially towards backward square leg for a run. A good knock so far from him but his team needs more.
  • 20.2Gets on the front foot to a full ball and pushes it to covers.
  • 20.1Duminy has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 19.6The batsman gets an inside edge and the ball hits him on the pads. 90/3
  • 19.5A googly landing full around off, Miller fails to pick it as he draws forward to defend. It goes off the outside edge towards the slip region.
  • 19.4Gets back and punches it down the ground for a single.
  • 19.3Quicker one, full and on middle, 85 kph, it's flicked through mid-wicket for a run.
  • David Miller is the new batsman.
  • 19.2OUT! Trapped in front! Chahal also tastes blood. Ominous signs for the Proteas. Is this once again going the same way like the last ODI? A nicely tossed up leg spinner, landing on leg and spinning away to beat the bat of Klaasen. He is rapped on the back leg, they appeal and the finger goes up almost immediately. The debutant has a chat with his senior partner but Duminy advises against the use of DRS. Heinrich walks back and South Africa lose their third wicket.
  • 19.1Tossed up ball on off, driven back to the bowler.
  • Spin from both ends now. Yuzvendra Chahal is brought back into the attack.
  • 18.6Duminy has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. Testing over. 88/2
  • 18.5Full and outside off, driven down through mid on for a run.
  • 18.4Kuldeep is just toying with the newcomer. Bowls a googly now, around off and it curls away from the batsman.
  • 18.3Beautifully bowled. Turning back into the batsman from outside off, Klaasen tries to force it through covers but gets an inside edge back towards the bowler.
  • 18.2FOUR! Unforced error in the field. Who is the culprit? It's Bhuvneshwar. Loopy and full outside off, Klaasen presses forward and drills it through the line. Kumar runs across to his right at the edge of mid off but dives over the ball and lets it through for a boundary.
  • 18.1Leans forward to a full ball outside off and drives it to covers.
  • 17.6A stifled appeal for an lbw! Duminy fails to work it around the corner and takes a blow on his pads. They appeal, rather mutedly, nothing from the umpire. Probably, it pitched outside leg. 83/2
  • 17.5Driven through the covers by the batsman. Two runs added to the total.
  • 17.4Goes back to hit it square of the wicket on the off side. Rahane makes a super stop at point.
  • 17.3Fuller and outside off, driven to mid off.
  • 17.2Gets off the mark, Klaasen. He goes on the back foot and punches it through covers for a single.
  • 17.1On the pads, helped through square leg for a run.
  • 16.6Another slower delivery, full and outside off, it's driven to mid off. Successful first over by Yadav! 79/2

  • 16.4This one spins the other way, Klaasen goes back again and punches it to covers.
  • 16.3Turning back into the right-hander, Klaasen goes back and defends it to the leg side.
  • Heinrich Klaasen, the debutant, arrives in the middle. A slip and leg slip in place.
  • 16.2OUT! 400th dismissal for MS Dhoni in ODIs! Kuldeep slows this up in the air and lands it full around middle. Markram fails to read the googly there as he walks forward to flick it on the leg side. But the ball spins away to beat the outside edge and Dhoni takes the bails off in a flash. The chinaman strikes almost immediately and South Africa will hope this has not opened the floodgates. End of a handy partnership too. 225 needed off 202 balls!
  • 16.1Slower in pace but flatter through the air, Duminy goes back and punches it to sweeper cover for one.
  • Kuldeep Yadav replaces Chahal in the attack.
  • 15.6Plays this one nice and late. Places it towards point and retains strike with a single. 78/1
  • 15.5A length ball around off, Duminy hits it down to mid on.
  • 15.4Slower delivery around off, on a good length, Duminy taps it down to point.
  • 15.3Fuller and in the line of the stumps, Duminy gets behind it and pushes it to the off side.
  • 15.2Short in length and outside off, Duminy gets on top of the bounce and steers it through point for a couple of runs.
  • 15.1Fullish and outside off, a good looking cover drive for one.
  • 14.6Jumps out of the crease to a full ball and forces it down to long on for a run. So far, so good against the spinners. We heard that in the build up to this game, they practiced a lot against wrist spinners in the net. Seems, it's working. 74/1
  • 14.5Duminy has driven it through mid off. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 14.4Slower through the air, full and around off, spinning back in a bit, Duminy gets forward and defends it calmly to the off side.
  • 14.3Gives the charge to take it on the full and hits it to deep mid-wicket for a couple of runs.
  • 14.2Gets on the front foot and drives it through mid off for a single.
  • 14.1Flighted around leg, eased down to long on for one.
  • 13.6FOUR! Nice shot! Markram stands back to a shortish ball and powers it over mid-wicket for a boundary. 68/1
  • 13.5Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. One run added to the total.
  • 13.4This one cuts back into the batsman to cramp Duminy. It goes off his thigh pad to Dhoni.
  • 13.3Played to the point region by the batsman. No run.
  • 13.2Short in length on middle, Duminy cracks his pull shot through backward square leg and it runs away. Jadhav does an excellent job to stop it in the deep by sprinting across to his right. A couple taken and it seems Jadhav has hurt his left ankle in the process.
  • 13.1Short around off, Markram plays a controlled hook shot to fine leg for a run.
  • 12.6Pushed to the cover region by the batsman. They pick up a single. 60/1
  • 12.5Flatter one, full around leg, Duminy fails to sweep and it goes off his pads to fine leg. They appeal and the batsmen cross. Given as a leg bye. Probably pitched outside leg too.
  • 12.4Floated ball on off, Duminy defends it off his front foot.
  • 12.3Edged! Didn't pick him there. A wrong 'un around off, Duminy plays for the leg spin and edges it past Dhoni and short third man. A couple taken.
  • 12.2Fires in a fuller length ball on middle, Markram plays it down to long on for a run.
  • 12.1Quicker full ball on off, a slider, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 11.6Duminy offers the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 55/1
  • 11.5A rising delivery around off, Markram goes on his toes and deflects it down to third man for a run.
  • 11.4Wicket to wicket line, on a length, Duminy stays back and taps it down just beside the pitch. Dhoni runs forward and across to his left to collect the ball and they cross for one.
  • 11.3Angles in a length ball on middle, it's punched from the back foot past the mid-wicket fielder for a run.

  • Third man comes up, cover drops back.

Amla hops to flick it away but misses and is caught right in front of the stumps. The Indians go up in appeal and get the nod from the umpire. Amla has a chat with his skipper at the other end, who says it isn't a good idea to review that. He is right there as the Hawk Eye returns three reds. The home side is jolted early in their run chase.
  • Jasprit Bumrah to bowl from the other end.
