Hardik Pandya's quickfire 15 off 7 balls helped India get across the line with 15 balls to spare.

India beat South Africa by 6 wickets
- 21:37 (IST)Big mixup between MS Dhoni and Rohit SharmaImran Tahir for some reason is persisting with his slower balls and Rohit Sharma played it on the on-side. A slight misfield by the fielder and both batsmen were stranded in the middle of the pitch for a while, unsure whether to go for a single or not, but ultimately complete the run run safely. A better fielding effort could have sent one of them back.
- 20:19 (IST)Quinton de Kock takes a stunner to dismiss KohliAndile Phehlukwayo's extra bounce does the trick for him but more than that the wicket belongs to Quinton de Kock whose acrobatics helped see the back of Indian skipper who departs for 18.
- 20:02 (IST)Huge LBW appeal! Not outAndile Phehlukwayo's seaming-in delivery hits Rohit Sharma'a pads and his huge appeal has been turned down by the umpire. South Africa have reviewed it. The ball would have gone onto clip the stumps but since it was umpire's call Rohit survives. South Africa keep their review.
