SA 75-0 (12 ovs) vs India 287-6 | Scorecard

Spin from both ends as Yuzvendra Chahal comes into the attack. De Kock clips the first ball through square leg for one and Malan hits the next to long-on for another run.

De Kock picks another single to long-on before Malan is beaten by a sharp turning leg break from Chahal, but there is no edge and his feet is grounded before Pant took off the bails.

Chahal bowls a wide down the leg side before Malan sweeps the last ball for a couple of runs to deep square leg.

Ashwin, who went for 24 runs in four overs in his first spell, is back into the attack.

De Kock hits the first ball into the covers where the fielder makes a good stop to keep it down to one but a wild throw sees him conceding another extra run.

Those two runs help de Kock race to his half-century from 36 balls and then takes a single through the covers.
