January 21, 2022  20:07

SA 132-1 (22 ovs) vs India 287-6 | Scorecard

Ashwin comes back into the attack, as he replaces Chahal. Malan sweeps the second ball fine on the leg side for a couple of runs and takes a single next ball to long-on.

Three singles from the last three balls as Ashwin gives away six runs in his fifth over.

In the next over, de Kock enjoys a slice of luck as he misses the pull shot off Thakur and the ball goes off his gloves and passes close to the stumps.

De Kock hits the next ball to deep midwicket for a single before the pacer bowls a wide.

Malan takes a single to bring up his fifty from 66 balls before the pacer bowls another wide to de Kock.

De Kock shuffles across and misses the full toss but the huge appeal for leg before wicket is turned down.

Thakur is absolutely convinced but the umpire is unmoved and India immediately take the review.

That is plumb and is surprising that the on-field umpire Marais Erasmus didn't give it out.

Infact, de Kock started walking as he saw the replay on the big screen before he was ruled out on the review.

De Kock walks back after a quickfire 78 from 66 balls, hitting seven fours and three sixes. He put on 132 runs for the opening wicket from as many balls to lay the perfect foundation for the Proteas.
