FOUR! Bjorn Fortuin to Shreyas Iyer. Stock length ball, middle stump down the track driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Iyer drills one down the ground and India have won! One over to spare for India, a very dominant performance, after the wicket of de Kock the South African batsmen didn't do enough to get a competitive total, the dominance for India started with some big hitting by Sharma and Dhawan and was finished off by Kohli with a masterclass. India now go into the last game with a 1-0 lead in the T20I series.

SIX! Navdeep Saini to Dwaine Pretorius. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That six from Pretorius concludes the South Africa innings and they manage 149, not the best end to the innings after the great start de Kock and Bavuma made but they have a total that is defendable. Good bowling from the Indians with lots of variety chucked in which was the downfall for South Africa. With players like Kohli, Dhawan and Sharma all in the top three it will be a tough ask for the South African bowlers.
