Ashwin to de Bruyn, FOUR runs, length, and he has flayed this away towards deep backward square leg
43.5
4
Jadeja to Nortje, FOUR runs, fuller, and he is able to glide this away to fine leg
42.3
4
Ashwin to Rabada, FOUR runs, edged, but wide of short third man! More of a point, actually, but he did anticipate this edge and wound up almost at short third man. Flighted outside off, and Rabada has a swipe, and gets the outer edge, that takes it above second slip. Runs through to the third man fence, despite a game effort from Ravindra Jadeja
40.5
4
Ashwin to Rabada, FOUR runs, tossed up around off, and he plays a whippy drive through covers. Terrific shot from Rabada, as he places it to the left of a wide mid off
39.5
4
Jadeja to Rabada, FOUR runs, swings one over mid-on. Not middled, but enough to get it two bounces into the long-on fence. A cheeky smile, as those are his first runs in this Test
38.4
4
Ashwin to de Bruyn, FOUR runs, reverse paddle sweep for four! Just allows this to come into him, gets into perfect position and whips it away
35.2
4
Jadeja to Piedt, FOUR runs, uses his feet to get closer to a ball and slams it down past mid-on
31.5
6
Nadeem to de Bruyn, SIX runs, steps out and goes straight, clears the ropes, lands in front of the sightscreen
30.6
4
Ashwin to Piedt, FOUR runs, punched superbly to the cover boundary. Too short, made room and belted it
29.5
4
Nadeem to de Bruyn, FOUR runs, goes for a wild slog, gets it off a thickish inside edge and it races to the midwicket boundary. Was looking to hit that a lot straighter
29.3
4
Nadeem to de Bruyn, FOUR runs, cut away, Ashwin dives over the ball at point and this runs away to the boundary
21.6
4
Jadeja to Linde, FOUR runs, length, but too straight, and he's able to biff this across the line. Stands up tall and hits it hard, getting it wide of deep mid-on quite comfortably!
21.2
6
Jadeja to Piedt, SIX runs, length, and he comes down the wicket and smacks this straight back over the bowler's head. Way over the sightscreen. Top connection from Piedt!
20.2
4
Yadav to Linde, FOUR runs, angles into him, and he flicks this away off his pads. Terrific bit of timing, as he uses the pace offered by Umesh on the ball
20.1
4
Yadav to Linde, FOUR runs, length ball, around off, and Linde drives on the up. It lands just short of Shami at mid off, and he misses that ball completely. Got nutmegged by that, and Kohli doesn't look amused
17.5
4
Jadeja to Linde, FOUR runs, floated up, and he looks to towards mid-wicket. Hasn't timed this, but done enough to clear mid-on, who's standing about three-quarters of the way to the fence
14.2
4
Yadav to Linde, FOUR runs, slapped away through extra cover. Enough width and he put the ball where it deserved to go
9.1
4
Yadav to Elgar, FOUR runs, pokes and gets away with that thickish outside edge that races past gully to the third man boundary
7.1
4
Yadav to Elgar, FOUR runs, that's a scorcher, away from the body but hit on the up behind point for four
1.6
4
Yadav to Elgar, FOUR runs, off the edge, but through the cordon! Elgar is squared up by one that angles across him after pitching around leg, and it runs off the back of the bat, I suspect, and flies between second slip and gully through to third man
0.1
4
Mohammed Shami to de Kock, FOUR runs, thrown wide from around the wicket, and de Kock has a slash at that, sending it flying over gully. Wow!
