  • December 14, 2023 23:41
    SA 95/10 in 13.5 overs

    Kuldeep bowls googly and Burger doesn’t pick him. He’s trapped in front. South Africa is eight down now. Lizaad Williams is the new man in. He tries to reverse sweep, is hit on the body. Indians review it. It’s hitting! South Africa nine down now. Now Miller tries to sweep is bowled! South Africa loses the game by 106 runs.

    Kuldeep registers his best T20I figures - 5/17 in 2.5 overs. That too on his birthday! 

  • December 14, 2023 23:35
    SA 94/7 in 13 overs

    Siraj for his third over. He’s bowling fast, getting the ball to grip off the surface. Tough for both: a well-set Miller and debutant Burger to play. Five off the over. 

  • December 14, 2023 23:31
    SA 89/7 in 12 overs

    Kuldeep continues. Miller sweeps and finds the fence for four! South Africa needs plenty of that from him now. Another ball that spins back into the right-handed Keshav Maharaj. He misses it and is clean bowled. Seven down now.

    SA 66/4 in 9 overs

    Jadeja continues and Miller smacks him over square leg for a SIX on the first ball. A half volley and Miller this time hits it straight over long on for another six. Jadeja beats Miller and is very excited thinking he has got his man, but umpire isn’t interested. He can’t opt for DRS since it is not available at the moment. 

  • December 14, 2023 23:13
    SA 51/4 in 8 overs

    Tilak Varma with his off spin introduced into the attack. Decent first four balls, just one run off it. Miller runs a double on the fifth ball. Just four runs off it.

  • December 14, 2023 22:47

  • December 14, 2023 22:41
    SA 14/1 in 2 overs

    Mukesh Kumar begins with, guess what? Beating Breetzke on the drive. However, on the next ball, he finally gets to middle the ball and finds the boundary past point. On the third, Breetzke goes for another drive, gets an inside edge and chops on to the stumps! An early wicket for India. Aiden Markram joins and defends the first ball, aimed at his body on the length. Gets a half volley and lofts over mid-off for a SIX!? Umpires are checking. Yes, it is. An outside edge on the last ball past the first slip and a four to end the over. 

  • December 14, 2023 22:35
    SA 0/0 in 1 over

    All set for the run chase. Reeza Hendricks and Matthew Breetzke open the innings. Mohammad Siraj to open the bowling for India. 

    A jaffa to start with by Siraj. Nips away and Hendricks is left squared up. Three balls and three times he has beaten him. Another play and a miss on the fourth. He’s making him drive while nipping the ball away. Five in a row. A maiden to start with! What an over.
