    David Miller – Player Of The Match

    “Obviously a lot of hard work has gone in over the last few years understanding my game a lot better. You need two players playing a part while chasing. Rassie (van der Dussen) played phenomenally well at the back end with some big overs. Chuffed with the result. Just try and hang in there was the chat (with Rassie)... Belief (one thing that has transformed his career). Understanding winning more games and more consistency gives you more belief. I am pretty open to bat anywhere. Just want to make a difference.”

    South Africa Win!

    South Africa Need 4 In 6

    Eight runs came off Harshal Patel's fourth over and that leaves South Aftica needing four off the final over.

    SA 208/3 (19)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 10:23 PM

    22-Run Over

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar also leakes runs. A total of 44 runs have come off the last two overs. David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen have made this a one-sided affair as South Africa need only 12 off the last 12 balls. 

    SA 200/3 (18)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 10:15 PM

    Fifty For Rassie Van Der Dussen

    SIX from Rassie van der Dussen and he races to his fifty in 37 balls. He started slow but is finishing it really well. He hit three SIXES and a FOUR in Harshal Patel's third over to keep South Africa alive in the hunt. The Proteas need 34 more in 18.

    SA 178/3 (17)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 10:07 PM

    Good Bowling

    Avesh Khan has bowled an eight-run over and that leaves South Africa needing 56 off the last four overs. Meanwhile, David Miller is 56 not out off 26.

    SA 156/3 (16)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 10:01 PM

    Fifty For David Miller

    A single and David Miller races to his fifth T20I fifty. This is a special knock from him. He gets there in just 22 balls and that has kept South Africa in the hunt. The Proteas need 64 in 30 balls.   

    SA 148/3 (15) 

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 9:59 PM

    South Africa Need 78 In 36

    Nine runs came off Avesh Khan's third over. He could have finished it a ball before with just 7 runs in it but it turned out to be a no-ball and that eventually made it a 9-run over. 

    SA 134/3 (14)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 9:51 PM

    Miller Magic

    David Miller is playing a blinder here. Watching him bat is so pleasing to the eye. He hit Axar Patel for a FOUR before smashing him for two consecutive SIXES. 19 runs came off the over and South Africa are alive in the game.

    SA 125/3 (13)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 9:47 PM

    Expensive Over

    14 runs came off the second over of Harshal Patel. He had conceded only four runs off the first give balls but then Miller hit him for a FOUR and a SIX to make it a big over. South Africa need 106 more in 48 balls.

    SA 106/3 (12)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 9:38 PM

    South Africa Need 126 In 60

    Only 26 runs have come off the last five overs and a wicket. India have made a really good comeback. South Africa need 126 off the remaining 60 balls. No real sign of dew yet and this means that the Proteas have an uphill task ahead.

    SA 86/3 (10)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 9:32 PM


    Axar Patel has dismissed Quinton de Kock and South Africa can feel the pressure now. They need 131 more to win in 68 balls. The required run rate is over 11.5. De Kock played a slog-sweep but failed to connect to it properly and Ishan Kishan took a really good catch on the boundary line.

    SA 81/3 (8.4) 

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 9:25 PM

    Tight Bowling

    Only seven runs have come off the last two overs. While Harshal Patel conceded just one run in his first over, Axar Patel gave six runs. Required run rate gets over 11 runs now. These are tesing times for South African batsmen.

    SA 67/2 (7)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 9:18 PM


    Dwaine Pretorius has been dismissed by Harshal Patel. He departs on 29 off 13 and India can now have some sigh of relief.

    SA 61/2 (5.2)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 9:08 PM

    Expensive Over

    Not a good start for Yuzvendra Chahal as he concedes 16 runs off his first over. Dwaine Pretorius hit a SIX to him before Quinton de Kock could scored two consecutive FOURS towards the end. 

    SA 42/1 (4)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 9:01 PM


    Temba Bavuma has been outfoxed by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. That's a really smart bowling from the veteran Indian bowler. He bowled a leg cutter to Bavuma and that saw the batsman edging the ball to wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, who took a really good catch diving forward. 

    SA 22/1 (2.2)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:57 PM

    Expensive Over

    15 runs came off Avesh Khan's first over. Temba Bavuma hit him for two consecutive FOURS before Quinton de Kock could end the over with another boundary. 

    SA 22/0 (2)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:48 PM

    We Are Back!

    Quinton de Kock takes the strike. Temba Bavuma is at the other end. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has the new ball in hand. Here we go!

    It's a tight first over from Bhuvi. He got some good swing in the first over. 

    SA 7/0 (1)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:35 PM

    India Post 211/4

    Nine runs came off the last over bowled by Anrich Nortje and India have set a target of 212 runs for South Africa. This is going to be a tough chase for the Proteas as the pitch has fair amount of help for the bowlers. A discipined start in bowling can put India further ahead in this game.

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:35 PM


    19.4 - Oh, this is crazy from Hardik Pandya. He is hitting it like a baseball. It seemed like an effortless shot from him for a SIX over extra-cover region. 

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:31 PM


    This is the end of Rishabh Pant's impactful knock. He departs on 29 off 16. His innings was laced with two SIXES and as many FOURS. Anrich Nortje claims the well-planned wicket.

    IND 202/4 (19.1)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:28 PM

    Expensive Over

    15 runs came off the last over of Kagiso Rabada. India have already crossed the 200-run mark. Anything above it on this pitch will be a bonus for them.

    IND 202/3 (19)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:24 PM

    13-Run Over

    Hardik Pandya also joins the party now. He hit Wayne Parnell for a FOUR and a SIX to help India fetch 13 runs off the over. Last 12 balls coming...  

    IND 187/3 (18)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:21 PM

    Fearless Pant

    Rishabh Pant is playing his shots now and he is getting them from the middle of his bat. This is really good batting from him. He hit Dwaine Pretorius for two SIXES and a FOUR in the over. 18 runs came off it and India are now eyeing a total in excess of 200.  

    IND 174/3 (17)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:16 PM


    A wicket was always coming as the South African bowlers had bowled tight overs. Only 11 runs had come off the last two overs and that saw Shreas Iyer going for a big one. It was bowled full from Dwaine Pretorius and the lack of bounce saw Iyer chopping the ball on his stumps.  

    IND 156/3 (16.1)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 8:05 PM

    India Bank On Shreyas Iyer

    Shreyas Iyer continues to play his shots and is making sure Rishabh Pant, the new batter, doesn't feel the pressure to score quick runs. Iyer is on 33 off 20 balls.

    IND 145/2 (14)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:59 PM


    A full ball from Maharaj and Kishan holes it out to long-on. He falls on 76 off 48. What a superb knock this is! He literally toyed with Maharaj in the over before getting out on his last ball. 20 runs came off the over.

    IND 137/2 (13) 

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:55 PM

    Ishan Kishan On Fire

    12.1 - In the slot from Keshav Maharaj and Ishan Kishan has hit it for a big SIX towards cow corner.

    12.2 - Another SIX! Oh, this bloke is just too good. He has so much power in his hands. This is turning out to be a big over.

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:51 PM

    FIFTY For Kishan

    In the slot and Kishan dispatches it into the stands to race to his third T20I fifty. He gets there in just 37 balls. Considering the surface, this innings is far more valuable than what it looks like. Batting is not easy on this pitch, but such things barely bother the youngster. 

    IND 111/1 (10.5)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:51 PM

    Poor South Africa

    10.3 - Keshav Maharaj had beautifully trapped Shreyas Iyer but Quinton de Kock failed to finish the task behind the stumps. Keshav turned the ball from a good length as Iyer stepped forward to take him on. When the ball reached Quinton, Iyer was gone for all the money but the wicketkeeper was kind enough to fumble and see the Indian batter survive.  

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:43 PM

    Back-to-back SIXES

    This is simply sensational from Shreyas Iyer. He is playing big shots so easily. The right-handed batter danced down the track twice to Tabraiz Shamsi and hit him over long-on for two consecutive SIXES.

    IND 102/1 (10)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:40 PM

    What A Shot!

    Anrich Nortje bowled full to Ishan Kishan and the latter slammed the ball straight for a FOUR. It went like a bullet. It is certainly Kishan's best shot so far in this game. He is 44 off 34 now. 

    IND 87/1 (9)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:36 PM

    Positive Intent

    The pitch has a lot of help for bowlers but the scorecard will tell you a different story. This is because the Indian batters are trying their level best to score despite the ball not coming onto the bat nicely.

    IND 75/1 (8)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:29 PM

    In Case You Missed It

    Aiden Markram tested positive for COVID-19 and therefore was not available for selection in the ongoing first T20I.

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:27 PM


    Ruturaj Gaikwad is out. He has been dismissed by Wayne Parnell on 23 off 5 balls. South Africa can have some respite now. 

    IND 57/1 (6.2)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:26 PM

    Expensive Over

    15 runs came off Anrich Nortje's second over. Ruturaj Gaikwad started the over with a SIX before Ishan Kishan could follow it with two fours in the over. 

    IND 51/0 (6)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:22 PM

    Unlucky South Africa

    The South Africa bowlers have done a good job so far but they are unlucky enough to not get a wicket so far. Ishan Kishan is throwing his bat to everything on offer but this pitch has a lot of help for bowlers.

    IND 36/0 (5)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:13 PM

    SIX From Gaikwad

    2.5 - It was a well directed bouncer from Anrich Nortje but Ruturaj Gaikwad got a SIX off it as the top edge flew over fine leg boundary.

    This pitch has some extremely good swing and seam movement. Batting has not been easy so far, let's see how the pitch performs as the match progresses.

    IND 24/0 (3)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:06 PM

    Back-to-back FOURS

    That's a good start from Keshav Maharaj as the pitch has good turn but India got 13 runs off the over. Ishan Kishan hit two consecutive fours in the over.

    IND 13/0 (1)

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 7:01 PM

    It's Game Time

    South Aftrica start with spin. Keshav Maharaj will bowl the first over. Ishan Kishan faces him and Ruturaj Gaikwad is at the non-striker's end. 

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 6:54 PM

    India Eye History

    It is worth noting that the Indian team is on a record 12-match winning streak in the T20Is. They are currently tied with Afghanistan and Romania, however, another win can help them become first team in men’s T20I history to record 13 consecutive wins.

    Trust On Rishabh Pant

    Despite Hardik Pandya impressing one and all with his captaincy skills in IPL 2022, the selectors decided to promote Rishabh Pant as India’s captain for the South Africa series. It will be interesting to see how Pant performs in the entire series and how much impact Hardik makes as a vice-captain.

    South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma has won the toss and opted to bowl first against India.

  • 09 Jun 2022 / 6:28 PM

    India Without Kuldeep Yadav

    Kuldeep Yadav misses the series due to an injury. However, India have enough spin in their armoury. Meanwhile, Yuzvendra Chahal, the purple cap holder from IPL 2022, will be the cynosure of all eyes tonight.
