3.4 overs (0 Run) Good stop from Lungi Ngidi, saved a certain boundary! A slower full ball, on off. Kishan smashes it straight down and Ngidi does well to get his left leg in between to stop it. He has done himself a bit of damage there but will continue.

2.6 overs (0 Run) Out it is! South Africa get two in quick succession. Slightly short and around middle and off. Iyer looks to defend but misses and gets hit on the pads. A huge appeal for LBW but not given! South Africa take the review. This might be pitching outside leg but first UltraEdge confirms there is no bat. Ball Tracking shows three reds and that is a fantastic review from South Africa. Superb start from South Africa.

2.1 overs (6 Runs) IN THE AIR AND SIX! He means business in the Powerplay! Short in length and on middle. Kishan hangs back and pulls it, gets more elevation but enough distance to clear the square leg fence for a biggie.
Shreyas Iyer walks in at number 3.
1.6 overs (0 Run) OUT! EDGED AND GONE! Gaikwad goes for a timid score! Ngidi gave width on the last ball but not on this occasion as he serves it just outside off, short of a length. This one angles in and Gaikwad opens his face of the bat to play it down to third man but gets an outside edge and Quinton de Kock is back in action behind the stumps as he pouches it.
1.5 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Gaikwad gets his first boundary now! Too much width there, shorter and outside off. Gaikwad gets on his toes and plays a back foot punch through point for a boundary.

As we build towards this game, there is an ODI game that is going on between England and Netherlands, though we think that England just approached it with a mindset of a T20 game. They have scored 498 runs in their allotted 50 overs, the highest-ever ODI total in the history of the game. That is some serious effort by a very strong English team and let's hope we witness a run-feast in this belter of a track at Rajkot.
Hardik Pandya is down for a chat. He says that he kind of knew at the start of the series that he would be leading India after this series. Tells that it is still a special feeling to get the chance to lead the Indian team and who would have thought that it will happen one day, it shows that if one works hard, rewards will come. Tells that he tries to play the role that team needs and he comes as the 6th bowling option in this team and he tries to perform well whenever he gets the opportunity. Mentions that he enjoys the challenge of batting as a finisher.
Rishabh Pant, the skipper of India, says they were looking to bowl first. Adds that they are focussing on the process and mentions that when one plays for the country, every game is a must-win game. Tells that they are trying to increase their run-rate in the middle overs and it might not work out all the time but adds that, they are trying to improve.
Temba Bavuma, the skipper of South Africa, says that they will bowl first. Says he is not too sure how the wicket will play and he is backing his strength. Adds that the previous scores are high in the domestic games here and informs they have three changes, two forced ones as Rabada and Parnell miss out due to injuries, Reeza Hendricks also misses out. Quinton along with Marco Jansen and Lungi Ngidi come into the team. Tells that de Kock will play his role and hopes the team performs well.
India (Unchanged Playing XI) - Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (C) (WK), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal.
South Africa (Playing XI) - Quinton de Kock (In for Reeza Hendricks), Temba Bavuma (C), Dwaine Pretorius, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen (WK), David Miller, Marco Jansen (In for Wayne Parnell), Keshav Maharaj, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi (In for Kagiso Rabada).
TOSS - The coin goes up and lands in favour of South Africa. They have elected to BOWL first.
PITCH REPORT - Deep Dasgupta is down for the Pitch Report. He says it's a big ground. Adds that it is a high scoring venue. There is a lot of grass, it has a thick root structure and we can expect a spongy bounce. Tells that it might help seamers with the new ball as there is a layer of grass. Feels it will be a high scoring one and dew won't be there.
