India 184-3 (33 ovs) vs South Africa | Scorecard

Four runs come off the over as drinks are called.

The tone in this middle section of the match is that the big shots are not coming and India content with just keeping the scoreboard moving.

Phehlukwayo continues and the batsmen are content with rotating the strike. 

The ball going down the leg side. Did Rohit get a nick? The fielders go up, no says the umpire. SA ask for a review. The review shows no connection. 

7 runs and a wicket come off the over.

Rabada comes back into the attack.

Rohit gets a single to the on-side and then Rahane pulls to the on side for another single.

Rohit rolls the wrists and pulls again over deep square leg.

Another run-out here. Rahane gone this time. Out for 8. 

Iyer comes in to bat and starts with a neat leg glance off his pad to fine leg boundary.

Phehlukwayo brought back into the attack and Rahane gets the inside edge and a single down to square leg. 

Just two runs come off the over.

Morkel continues and Rahane plays the ball down to deep square leg for a single.

Rohit then plays the ramp shot to send the ball to the third man boundary. 

Rohit then plays the ball to point and hares down the pitch for a single. 

Shamsi continues and he gives 4 singles in the over.
