Result: No Result

49.6
Two Runs
Ahmed to Miller. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to long off for 2 runs, fielded by Kohli. Another fantastic innings from South Africa. This time India did get the early wickets but they came up against De Villiers in flying form. Can the batsman get going this time? This is the best batting track of the series and India's batsman are due some runs. South Africa are also without Steyn and Morkel.

49.4
Wicket

One Run
Ahmed to Miller. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Sharma.

49.2
