South Africa 140-1 (43 ovs) vs India | Scorecard

The first hour after lunch belongs to South Africa even though India sent back Elgar.

Markram has done well to up the ante and punish the bad balls as Amla has played another patient knock. The fifty-run partnership has also come up in the meanwhile. 

Shami continues. 

Short ball and Markram plays it through cover for his 14th boundary. 

Markram then gets a single. Amla nicely sees off Shami as drinks break is called.

Ashwin continues and Markram just punches the ball off his back foot, past point and the ball races to the boundary for a four.

Markram gets a single before Amla is tested by Ashwin off the last three balls of the over.

Shami comes back in the attack.

Amla uses the pace of the ball to get a boundary through square.
