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.

Start of Innings
Start of South Africa Innings. De Villiers wins the toss and unsuprisingly decides to bat first. This pitch looks the best for batting in the series so far, with a very small amount of grass visible. Dhoni will be hoping his bowlers can find that early breakthrough so desperately missing in the first two games and give the batsman a target they feel comfortable chasing down. South Africa make three changes, giving Steyn, Morkel and Kallis a chance to rest. For India, Yuvraj returns from illness.
