28 September 18:47

INDIA WIN!

The Proteas bowlers tried, but they never had enough runs on the board. 

India get home by 8 wickets and with 3.2 overs to spare ...

28 September 18:41

Just six runs needed for India now ...

28 September 18:37

India 91/2 (15)

That was another expensive over from Nortje, and India are cruising now. 

They need 16 off 30

28 September 18:32

Parnell finishes with very good figures of 0/14 (4). He bowled three overs in the opening powerplay. 

28 September 18:29

Parnell returns. 

India need just 30 off 42 ...

28 September 18:27

SIX! 

Yadav launches Maharaj over extra cover for six and this is the beginning of the end for the Proteas ...

28 September 18:25

It's looking a little easier for India now as they are scoring relatively easier against the spinners. 

They now need 40 off 47, and with 8 wickets in hand, that will surely be a stroll. 

28 September 18:20

6 off that Maharaj over and India are ticking along. 

They need 54 off 54 with 8 wickets in hand ..

28 September 18:17

India 47/2 (10) 

Nortje, bowling fast, is clipped off Rahul's pads for a maximum with the last ball of that over. 

India need 60 off 60 ...

28 September 18:08

Gloves are off for De Kock and he looks in real pain again after trying to fetch another down leg. 

He's going to carry on again. 

India need 66 off 65

28 September 18:07

As I say that, Nortje returns ...

28 September 18:06

India 38/2 (9)

Spin from both ends now with Shamsi and Maharaj on. Proteas fighting hard, but India are in control, I think ...

28 September 17:59

Shamsi now into the attack ...

28 September 17:58

India 29/2 (7)

28 September 17:55

SIX! 

This time he has got ALL of that, and that is huge! On the pads from Nortje, and he has travelled.

28 September 17:55

SIX! 

Suryakumar had no idea where that was going! Beaten for pace by Nortje, and it's flown off the edge for six! 

28 September 17:52

WICKET! 

Nortje is into the attack and strikes first ball! It's Kohli! It was outside off, and he has thrown the bat at that only to edge through to De Kock. 

Well, well, well ...

India 17/2 (6.1)

28 September 17:51

India 17/1 (6)

That's the powerplay done, and the Proteas will take that! Rabada and Parnell have done a great job, providing India's top order with a difficult new ball test. 

Rahul is 11* off 26!

28 September 17:47

India 16/1 (5)

Rabada has bowled three overs in a row and has been very, very good. That's an encouraging sign for the Proteas, regardless of what happens in this match ...

28 September 17:46

By a mile. The Proteas lose one of their reviews. Some rather puzzling calls happening out here on the LBW review front ...

28 September 17:45

Now the Proteas HAVE reviewed but this one surely hit Rahul outside off stump ...

28 September 17:43

India 12/1 (4)

Parnell went up for a huge LBW appeal against Rahul in that over, but it was given not out. 

There was no Proteas review, but it looked rather close. Why wouldn't they review that?

28 September 17:37

India 11/1 (3)

That was a superb over from Rabada! He beats Kohli's outside edge again, and the Proteas are just starting to feel this ...

28 September 17:36

Three slips for Rabada, who beats Kohli with an away swinger that is seriously quick ...

28 September 17:35

Virat Kohli walks to the middle ...

28 September 17:34

WICKET! 

That is a stunning ball from Rabada! Sharma is stuck on his crease and offers no feet. It finds the edge and De Kock takes it one-handed behind the stumps. 

India 9/1 (2.2)

28 September 17:33

Ind 9/0 (2)

A long over from Parnell comes to an end. He's struggling with his line a bit, but he is getting some dangerous swing back into the right-hander and that would explain why he has been given the new ball. 

Rabada continues ...

28 September 17:30

Parnell thinks he has Rahul LBW - given not out - and Bavuma reviews. Two 'umpire's calls' mean it will stay not out. 

28 September 17:26

Injury concern now for the Proteas. Wicketkeeper De Kock has taken one on the finger and the medics are on. 

He looks okay ...

28 September 17:25

India 0/0 (1)

Rabada starts well, and that's a rare T20 maiden! India, of course, are unlikely to feel any run rate pressure today given the small total. 

Here comes Parnell ...

28 September 17:21

A bit of rain falling now at the innings change! They're getting the covers ready, but play looks set to start. 

India need 107 to win, which really should be a walk in the park. 

If SA are to stand any chance, they will need wickets right up top.

Here comes Rabada ...

28 September 17:14

Proteas left with mountain to climb after dismal batting

The Proteas have posted a woeful 106/8 from their allotted 20 overs in the first T20 against India in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.

The fact that spinner Keshav Maharaj top-scored with 41 (35) tells its own story of how dismal the rest of the batting was. 

Having been asked to bat first, the Proteas top order was reduced to 9/5 in just the third over with the swing of Deepak Chahar (2/24) and Arshdeep Singh (3/32) doing the damage. 

From that point, the Proteas' recovery was actually quite impressive with Aiden Markram (25 off 24) and Wayne Parnell (24 off 37) offering some much-needed resistance. 

There were three first-ball ducks in the South African innings - Rilee Rossouw, David Miller and Tristan Stubbs - while returning captain Temba Bavuma was also removed without scoring. 

Quinton de Kock's struggles in T20 cricket continued as he was bowled for 1. 

28 September 17:05

WICKET!

Maharaj done by a slower ball from Harshal and he's bowled. 

That is some inning from the South African spinner. He is gone for 41 (35).

SA 101/8 (19.1)

28 September 17:02

100 UP! 

SA 100/7 (19)

This has been a superb effort from Keshav Maharaj. It still isn't likely to be anywhere near enough for the Proteas, but from 9/5 this is some recovery. 

Last over ...

28 September 17:01

FOUR! 

Now Maharaj picks a gap in the covers off Singh and he moves on to 40* (33)! SA almost on 100 now. 

28 September 16:59

FOUR! SIX! 

Maharaj goes back to back boundaries with a couple of hugely impressive shots! The second one is slapped over 3rd man for a maximum! 

28 September 16:54

SA 79/7 (17)

Can the Proteas reach 100? 

Maharaj is 23* (27) and Rabada 2* (3)

28 September 16:47

WICKET! 

Parnell looks to take Axar on, but he doesn't come close to clearing the midwicket fence. That was a gutsy effort from the Proteas allrounder, but he falls for 24 (37).

SA 68/7 (15.5)

28 September 16:44

SA 63/6 (15)

The Proteas will have to try something now. There isn't much point, really, in knocking it around for 2/3 per over. 

28 September 16:38

SA 59/6 (13)

Parnell 18* (24)

Maharaj 12* (19)

28 September 16:36

SIX! 

There you go! It wasn't that short, but Maharaj launches Chahar over midwicket and into the stands. He's hit that sweetly out of the middle! 

28 September 16:34

SA 50/6 (12)

Maharaj is hanging around here, but he can't seem to find a run. Whichever way you look at this, it makes for awful reading if you're South African. 

I suppose the aim is to somehow find a way to 100 and set up just a glimmer of a chance.

28 September 16:30

SA 49/6 (11)

28 September 16:26

10 OVER UPDATE 

SA 48/6. There's not much more to say than that. It's been ALL India. 

Proteas have had three first-ball ducks - Rossouw, Miller, Stubbs - and were outdone by the swing of Singh and Chahar up top. 

Markram (25 off 24) offered some resistance, while Parnell (14* off 20) is still in. 

28 September 16:18

WICKET! 

Markram is out LBW! He moved across his stumps and looked to work it onto the leg side, but missed. The initial decision was not out, but the review sees that call overturned. 

This surely over now as a contest. 

Markram out for 25 (24).

SA 42/6 (8)

16.4 - Comment! India won by 8 wickets.
16.4 - Comment! Temba Bavuma: As a batting unit we failed to apply ourselves in those conditions. We didn't expect the pitch to play this way. Yes we expected it to be spicy but normally you will be able to hit through the line in this part of the world. Seamers needed runs behind then to defend. I thought we fought well late with the bat. That's a positive.
16.4 - Comment! Rohit Sharma: The wicket was tricky. It was nice to play a game like that. We knew the bowlers will get something seeing grass on the pitch, but we didn't expected help for the full 20 overs. It was still damp. Both teams were in the contest and the team that played better won the game. We started well, got 5 wickets in quick time and that was the turning point. Perfect showcase of how to bowl when there is help for the pacers (talking about Deepak Chahar and Arshdeep). We knew it wasn't going to be easy. Got to respect the conditions. Lost two wickets and that partnership between KL and Surya got us home.
16.4 - Comment! Man of the Match - Arshdeep Singh (India):- Overs:4 - Runs:32 - Wkts:3 - Econ:8.00.
16.4 - Comment! Arshdeep Singh: I had thought about what to say if I get the man of the match award and got a little excited (when he was eager to come and talk). The plan was to keep it simple and bowl in the right areas. I enjoyed Miller's wicket as I thought he was expecting an outswinger but I bowled an inswinger instead. The thought was to get his (Maharaj) wicket but he played well and the plan could have been different. I am refreshed, had a good training session at NCA and hopefully I give such performances moving forward as well.
16.4 - Comment! That's all from us for this one. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Until next time, it's goodbye!
