    OUT! L.B.W. Yuzvendra Chahal to Morne Morkel. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad. Big grip, sharply spinning back into the left hander, and it beats the defences to trap him plumb in front.

    India secure the victory, and they take an unassailable lead in the series! This will be their first ODI series win in this part of the world, so a huge achievement by them. Rohit Sharma set things up with a brilliant century earlier on in the day. Then spin did the damage again, taking six of the ten Proteas wickets. South Africa not quite at the races with the bat. They would have felt that it was a chasable score at the halfway point, but they fell well short in the end. Join us for the final game in the series to see how things finish up, which will be on Friday.

  • 42.1

    Yuzvendra Chahal to Morne Morkel. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, dropped catch by Chahal. Drilled back to the bowler, who has the chance to finish the game, but Chahal looks surprised that the ball came back to him, and it ended up just hitting him in the chest and landing safely. Shouldn't cause too much damage.

    FOUR! Kuldeep Yadav to Lungi Ngidi. Chinaman half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. That ends a dramatic over. Ngidi blasts this one straight down the ground, and it races past mid off for four.

  • 41.5

    OUT! Caught. Kuldeep Yadav to Tabraiz Shamsi. Chinaman half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Pandya. It's all coming to an end rather quickly here. Shamsi chips it up first ball, there looks to be some indecision with a couple of fielders to who is going to take the catch, but in the end Pandya just sticks out a hand to hold on. Not sure if that was luck or judgement, but it gives Kuldeep his fourth either way.

  • 41.4

    OUT! Stumped. Kuldeep Yadav to Heinrich Klaasen. Googly length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper, by Dhoni. It certainly is game over now. Klaasen wanders out the crease, looking to dispatch the spin out the ground. He doesn't pick the googly either, and it turns past the outside edge for Dhoni to do the mopping up. Plenty of time to complete the stumping, and India know the game is theirs.

    Kuldeep Yadav to Morne Morkel. Chinaman full toss, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Pandya.

  • 41.2

    OUT! Caught. Kuldeep Yadav to Kagiso Rabada. Chinaman half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to mid wicket, by Chahal. Well, Rabada's first attacking shot results in him walking back to the pavilion. Looks to drive over the top, but the execution is all wrong. Miscued into the hands of short mid wicket for a simple take.

    Yuzvendra Chahal to Kagiso Rabada. Googly back of a length, to leg on the back foot pushing, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Kumar.

    Still a gettable amount to get for South Africa from here. The only problem is the wickets column. Klaasen needs to play a gem from here to get them anywhere near. Stranger things have happened though.

    Kuldeep Yadav to Heinrich Klaasen. Quicker length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Kohli.

  • 37.5

    SIX! Kuldeep Yadav to Heinrich Klaasen. Googly back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. This is the right tactic from Klaasen. Not many batsmen to come for the Proteas, so maybe some big shots will put some nerves into the Indian bowlers. Clubbed straight back over the bowler's head for another max.

  • 37.4

    FOUR! Kuldeep Yadav to Heinrich Klaasen. Googly back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. This one sits up nicely. Dragged down, and swatted away to the square leg boundary.

  • 37.3

    Kuldeep Yadav to Heinrich Klaasen. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, mis-timed back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Yadav.
