FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Hardik Pandya. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Crashed away square and that's the last four runs India required. A comfortable run chase spearheaded by Rohit Sharma after an impressive bowling performance from Bumrah and Chahal. India get their World Cup campaign off to a winning start but it's three losses in a row for South Africa, they were playing catch up in this game right from the very start. That's it from the Hampshire Bowl, see you next time.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Chris Morris to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, by Morris. That's gone straight up, Morris calls for it early. He gets underneath it and does well to take the catch as he was falling over the stumps at the bowler's end as he did so. He's deserved that wicket, Dhoni perishes looking for a big shot late in the day.

Kagiso Rabada to Rohit Sharma. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover for no runs, dropped catch by Miller. Rabada takes the pace off and deceives Rohit. He's completely mis-timed his pull shot and plopped the ball gently up in the air. David Miller proceeds to drop one of the easiest catches I've ever seen go down in international cricket. That sums up South Africa in this tournament so far.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Bhuvneshwar Kumar Wickets : 2
49.6
W
OUT! Caught. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Imran Tahir. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump backing away pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Jadhav. Plopped up in the air and Bhuvneshwar has two wickets in his final over. South Africa have been on the back foot throughout this entire innings. Bumrah was fantastic with the new ball and Chahal did really well in the middle of the innings, his drift in particular deceiving the South African batsmen. Thanks to the work of Morris and Rabada South Africa do at least have a score to bowl at but it would take an incredible performance to bowl India out for less than 227.
49.2
W
OUT! Caught. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Chris Morris. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Kohli. Slow and wide once again from Bhuvi who is nailing that line just inside the wide line. Morris tried reaching for it but couldn't get hold of it and Kohli took the catch running in from long off.

FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Kagiso Rabada. Full toss, down leg side backing away driving, past long off for 4 runs. Clubbed down the ground. Rabada gave himself a little bit of room and again Bumrah missed his yorker and the result is another boundary with mid-off up in the circle.

FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Chris Morris. Full toss, middle stump backing away driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Misses the yorker and Morris crunches the ball through the covers for four.

42.6
4
FOUR! Hardik Pandya to Kagiso Rabada. Slower ball short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Lovely shot from Rabada. He was slow on the one the ball before but this ball was slower and he stood up tall and crashed it over the legside.
In over# 40
Runs : 0 Bowler: Yuzvendra Chahal Wickets : 1
39.3
W
OUT! Stumped. Yuzvendra Chahal to Andile Phehlukwayo. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Dhoni. One of the easiest stumpings Dhoni has ever had. Phehlukwayo all of a sudden was going after everything. He came running miles down the wicket and Chahal was crafty enough to get it through him. Dhoni actually spilt the ball at first but caught the rebound and then broke the the bails.
In over# 36

W
OUT! Caught & Bowled. Yuzvendra Chahal to David Miller. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on, by Chahal. Chahal back into the attack and he strikes straight away. Tossed up with men back down the ground and Miller struck it firmly but straight back at Chahal. It was a fairly comfortable return catch and South Africa lose their sixth wicket.

4
FOUR! Kedar Jadhav to Andile Phehlukwayo. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Gets to the pitch and cracks the ball over the top of cover. Just one bounce and into the fence, good shot.
In over# 29

4
FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to David Miller. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. That's a good shot, Miller timing it really well and it will go all the way to the boundary, a rare one for South Africa.
In over# 24
Runs : 4 Bowler: Yuzvendra Chahal Wickets : 0
23.4
4
FOUR! Yuzvendra Chahal to Andile Phehlukwayo. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. That's a confident shot, a reverse sweep second ball over the top of backward point, outrageous stuff.
In over# 23
Runs : 0 Bowler: Kuldeep Yadav Wickets : 1
22.6
W
OUT! L.B.W. Kuldeep Yadav to JP Duminy. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. That looks dead, Duminy went back and missed it and that's hitting nothing except leg stump. It looks like Miller talked him into a review, not because he thought it wasn't out but because South Africa don't have any real batsmen left. There is no miracle to save Duminy though. He was well back looking to defend, the ball was full, it pitched on middle and was hitting leg stump. South Africa in all sorts of trouble.
In over# 20
Runs : 0 Bowler: Yuzvendra Chahal Wickets : 2
19.6
W
OUT! Bowled. Yuzvendra Chahal to Faf du Plessis. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Through the gate and into the stumps. A massive blow for South Africa, two in the over for Chahal and India are right back in the driving seat again. Chahal has been tricky to read, some balls gripping and turning and others skidding through a bit quicker. This was one of the latter, it drifted in sharply and hurried on towards the stumps, flicking the front pad on the way.
19.1
W
OUT! Bowled. Yuzvendra Chahal to Rassie van der Dussen. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot reverse sweeping, missed to. Chahal has done him, that's gone behind van der Dussen and turned and hit middle stump. It was a pre-meditated reverse sweep but the ball wasn't the right line for the shot. Not a pretty end for van der Dussen, I think he would have been stumped anyway had the ball not bowled him.
In over# 16

15.4
4
FOUR! Kuldeep Yadav to Faf du Plessis. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, past deep square leg for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Kumar. A mistake by Bhuvneshwar in the deep gives Faf du Plessis a welcome boundary.
In over# 15

14.3
4
FOUR! Hardik Pandya to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Just a few signs of aggression or maybe some frustration from du Plessis. He's been hit on the finger, he's tried a couple of big sweep shots and he knows South Africa need to accelerate at some stage.
In over# 14

4
FOUR! Kuldeep Yadav to Rassie van der Dussen. Googly back of a length, off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Too much width from Kuldeep and van der Dussen sits back and drives off the back foot, piercing the offside field.

FOUR! Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Good wrists from du Plessis. He bats with his hands unusually far apart on the bat handle which does enable him to play some shots others wouldn't be able to.
In over# 6

W
OUT! Caught. Jasprit Bumrah to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to third slip, by Kohli. Edged and this time it goes to hand. Kohli had stationed himself at third slip and that ball flew above his head. Slightly fuller from Bumrah and he drew de Kock into a big drive, hence why the ball went so quickly towards the slips. Kohli stuck up two hands and caught the ball to give Bumrah and India a second wicket.

FOUR! Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Streaky but four, two slips in place but if there was a third that might have been gone.

FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Almost two in two. Pitched up by Bumrah aiming at the stumps. Faf du Plessis went at the ball and it flew off an inside edge, just missing his leg stump.
3.2
W
OUT! Caught. Jasprit Bumrah to Hashim Amla. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip, by Sharma. That's a beauty from Bumrah and it's done for Hashim Amla. He's hitting the pitch at speed and he manages to get one to move away from the right-hander which surprises Amla. The ball takes the edge high on the bat and Rohit Sharma takes a safe catch at second slip. What a start for India.

FOUR! Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Hashim Amla. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Great timing, that's Amla at his best, just leaning on the ball outside off stump and sending the ball flying behind square to the boundary.

OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Lokesh Rahul. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to mid off, by du Plessis. There was some discussion before the beginning of the over as to who to bowl but the captain stuck with Rabada and he's picked up another wicket. I'm not quite sure what Rahul was doing there, it wasn't a slower delivery he was just far too early on it and chipped up the simplest of catches to mid-off. Here comes Dhoni.

26.2

FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Rohit Sharma. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, past fine leg for 4 runs. Down the legside and swept away by Rahul. The fact that there is nobody back protecting that part of the ground serves to exaggerate how bad the ball was.

He wanted to run this ball towards third man and got a fair amount of bat on it but de Kock leapt threw the air and took the ball in the webbing of his glove. Phehlukwayo finds a wicket for South Africa again and that might just get their tails up.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Rohit Sharma. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs. Hits it on the up off the back foot and the ball flies away behind square. Just a bit too much width from Rabada and Rohit was able to stay inside the line of the ball.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Rohit Sharma. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, past third man for 4 runs. That's very well played by Rohit. He just angled the bat slightly on his forward defence and let the ball run off the face and wide of third slip, all along the floor.

OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Shikhar Dhawan. Seaming away back of a length, to leg on the back foot pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. That's a nick and that's out, Rabada is pumped up. Another good delivery, hitting the surface hard and Dhawan was pushing at it just outside off. He got a faint edge and it was an easy catch for de Kock. No less than Rabada deserved.
