LIVE India vs South Africa Live Cricket Score And Updates, IND vs SA 3rd T20I: De Kock, Hendricks Provide Proteas Steady Start in 135 Chase vs India
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 09:20:57 pmReview time! An appeal for an LBW has been turned down. India review. Looks to be sliding down leg.
NOT OUT! Yes, going down the leg side. What a waste of the review. Chahar gets this slower one right this time. Hendricks looks to work it down the leg side but is hit on the pads. That looks to be going down the leg side but hello, the skipper, however, has words with his bowler and then opts for the DRS. Here comes the Ball Tracker and confirms it is going way down the leg side. Kohli has his cap on his face. SA 40/0 in 5.3 overs, need 95 more to win vs IND (134/9)
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 09:15:51 pm
De Kock has arrived in Bengaluru!
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 09:15:03 pm
IND vs SA Live Updates: SIX! Another brute of a hit from de Kock. Saini is not reading the track properly here. Instead of trying out the variety of slower balls, the Delhi lad is doing the exact opposite. Heis offering a lot of pace on this length delivery and gets deposited in the blink of an eye over deep square. SA 31/0 in 4.3 overs vs IND (134/9)
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 09:13:11 pm
SIX! That's some shot from the Proteas skip. He is undoubtedly one the sweetest hitters of a cricket ball. It was a length ball on the pads and lets his class do the rest to it. He just stands firm and flicks it nonchalantly into the stands over deep square for a maximum. South Africa 25/0 in 4.1 overs vs India (134/9)
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 09:03:58 pm
FOUR! That is creamed! Beautiful from de Kock. This is a little too full outside off. De Kock strokes it through covers. Jadeja at long-off runs to his right, dives but his effort goes in vain. South Africa 13/0 in 3 overs, need 122 runs to win vs India (134/9)
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 09:03:08 pm
Very close to the bat. Beaten! Good length ball around off from Chahar, it shapes away from Hendricks who has a poke but misses. Chahar roars out an appeal but nothing from the umpire. SA 7/0 in 1.3 overs vs IND (134/9)
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:55:39 pm
IND vs SA Live Score and Updates: Pure timing from the Proteas skipper on this one. It was a nicely looped up delivery on outside off and de Kock just leant into the drive while slotting it in the gap through extra cover. Good start. South Africa 5/0 in 0.3 overs vs India (134/9)
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:52:31 pm
Welcome back for the chase. The hosts are going to start with spin as expected. It's Washington Sundar vs Hendricks. R Hendricks and de Kock are at the crease. Hendricks will take the strike, Sundar to begin the proceedings.
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:45:43 pm
Great show by the South African bowling unit!
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:56:16 pm
India 134/9 in 20 overs vs South Africa. Dhawan 36, Rabada 3/39, Hendricks 2/14, Fortuin 2/19 A bye to end! A top class last over by Rabada. Just the 6 runs and three wickets from it. Saini makes room and Rabada follows him with a shortish ball. Saini looks to cut but misses. The keeper collects the ball and underarms it at his end but misses. After the wicket of Rohit in the third over of the innings, Dhawan and Kohli added 42 runs at a quick pace. However, after that, the Indians kept losing wickets at regular intervals and could never get going. Kohli played an un-Kohli shot to get out while Rishabh Pant got out the way he does. The middle order of the hosts exploded and the run-scoring became tough. Jadeja and Hardik hung around for a while but they could not get the timings right to their shot and could only manage a few runs here and there.
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:38:02 pm
FOUR! That is so, so clever! Lovely from Sundar. Just used the pace of the delivery brilliantly. This is short and on middle, WS arches his back and guides it over the keeper for a boundary. A welcome one. They would love one more at least. IND 133/7 in 19.4 overs vs SA
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:37:16 pm
IND vs SA Live Updates: OUT! Rabada removes Ravindra Jadeja for 19. CAUGHT AND BOWLED! He took that with so much ease. That is a really tough catch. It went so high, so high, that it almost had snow on it as it came down. A short one on middle, Jadeja is hurried into the pull. He only gets a top edge which lobs beside the pitch. Rabada calls for it and takes an easy catch. India 127/7 in 19.1 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:36:19 pm
FOUR! Ends the over with a boundary! Pandya finally gets one off the middle. This is on a length and outside off, Pandya watches it and plays to the merit of the ball. He smashes it past cover and it races away. 9 from the over. India need to end well here. India 127/6 in 19 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:32:16 pm
In the air... safe! Shorter in length. Looks to hit it over covers off the back foot but only gets height on it. It lands safe though away from the sweeper and two is taken.
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:26:34 pm
SIX! Shot of the night. Jadeja dances down the track to one of the fiercest bowlers in contemporary cricket (Kagiso Rabada) and smashes him over the side scree. More of a statement this is. He gives himself the space to free his arms, the back of a length delivery is right in the slot and he smashes it straight back over Rabada. India 115/6 in 17.3 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:24:05 pm
'Star of the night' for South Africa!
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:20:41 pm
Confusion but no harm is done! This is on off, Jadeja pushes it towards mid off and sets off. Pandya is not interested as he sees the cover fielder make a good stop by diving to his left but till the time, he gets up and then throws, Jadeja makes it back in. India 103/6 in 15.4 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:14:25 pm
IND vs SA Live Score and Updates: OUT! Beuran Hendricks removes Krunal Pandya for 4. Another one bites the dust for the hosts. Hendricks continues to impress on his return. Good length ball around off which shapes away and just a hint. Pandya pokes at it and gets an outside edge. De Kock behind the wicket does not miss out to pouch. A huge apeeal follows and the umpire after thinking for a while lifts his finger. India 98/6 in 14.4 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:08:51 pm
OUT! Bjorn Fortuin gets the second one of the over, Shreyas Iyer departs for 5. Celebrates by pointing towards his head so either this might have been a plan or he might have seen the batter coming down the track. Nevertheless, South Africa have got two wickets in three balls and India have half their side back in the hut. Once again the shot could be questioned, especially after a wicket had just fallen. Iyer comes down the track but Fortuin bowls this down the leg side. Iyer looks to flick but misses. De Kock does well to move to his left, collect the ball and whip the bails off. IND 93/5 in 13 overs vs SA
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:07:27 pm
Game-changing over for South Africa?
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 08:01:48 pm
IND vs SA Live Updates: OUT! Bjorn Fortuin removes Rishabh Pant for 19. There goes Pant! He was looking to go after the bowlers after he hit that six and falls in that attempt. Once again an innings which started off in a promising manner ends with a not so impressive score. India 90/4 in 12.3 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:58:50 pm
SIX! That's a release shot from Rishabh Pant. The hosts need some more of these to put up a challenging score on the small ground here in Bengaluru. The scoring had stalled in the last couple of overs and Pant decides to improvise, he crouches low almost on his knee and scoops the slower delivery over fine leg. India 87/3 in 12 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:47:17 pm
FOUR! Easy-peasy! Rabada looks to bowl a yorker but ends up serving a full toss on middle, Pant whips it through mid-wicket and the ball races away to the fence. India 73/1 in 9 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:45:29 pm
IND vs SA Live Score and Updates: OUT! Kagiso Rabada removes Virat Kohli for 9. The Indian captain Kohli holes out! Once again the crowd is silenced. An uncharacteristic shot by Kohli, especially after they just lost Dhawan. That though is a top, top catch. This is angled into the batter, it is slightly fuller. Kohli whips it up in the air towards the deep mid-wicket region. Andile Phehlukwayo runs to his left and takes it brilliantly just before the ropes. He keeps his balance too. IND 68/3 in 8.3 overs vs SA
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:39:41 pm
Big blow for Team India!
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:39:14 pm
IND vs SA Live Updates: OUT! Tabraiz Shamsi removes Shikhar Dhawan for 36. In the air... taken! Shamsi has the last laugh against Dhawan. A very good catch by Bavuma and a welcome wicket for South Africa. Dhawan was really looking in great flow out there. He tries to go big once again as he steps down the track. Does not get to the pitch of the ball but still goes ahead with the shot. It turns away a little and he ends up slicing it high up in the air towards extra cover where Bavuma takes a brilliant catch moving backwards. South Africa will now try and pull things back a little.India 63/2 in 7.3 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:30:44 pm
SIX! Over long off this time! This is even better and classier than the last one. Dhawan uses his feet and gets to the pitch of it. He easily lofts it over mid-off. Times it brilliantly and it goes all the way. IND 53/1 in 5.3 overs vs SA
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:27:39 pm
IND vs SA Live Score and Updates: SIX! Welcome into the attack, Shamsi! That has been smoked! Shamsi tosses this up outside off, Dhawan gets an opportunity to free his arms. He nails it over the long-on fence. First of the game. India 47/0 in 5.1 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:26:51 pm
FOUR! EDGY! No-slip in place and a boundary! Dhawan this time uses his feet and also stays leg side of the delivery. He throws his bat at it but the ball flies off the outside edge past de Kock and for a boundary. India 35/0 in 3.5 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:21:45 pm
Will the trick work for the visitors?
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:20:39 pm
FOUR! That is outrageous! Brilliant from Dhawan. He shuffles across and Phehlukwayo bowls it slightly short on off. Dhawan initially looks to pull but then realizes it is not short enough so adjusts and punches it past mid-on for a boundary. IND 30/0 in 3.3 overs vs SA
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:17:35 pm
IND vs SA Live Updates: OUT! Reeza Hendricks removes Rohit Sharma for 9. EDGED AND TAKEN! Hendricks makes an impact on his return to the side. Gets Rohit Sharma who fails to make an impact once again. This is a top nut. It is on a good length and on off, it is angling away. Rohit looks to defend but is done in by the angle. It goes off the outside edge low towards widish first slip where Reeza takes it just above the ground. Silence here in the stadium and the South Africans are pumped up. They needed a wicket especially after the last over by Rabada.India 22/1 in 2.3 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:14:27 pm
FOUR! This is even better! All along the ground! Majestic from Rohit. He keeps it full again but it is a half volley again. Rohit creams it past the diving fielder at mid-off for consecutive boundaries. With this boundary, Rohit has gone past skipper Virat Kohli to become the leading run-scorer in T20Is. IND 21/0 in 1.5 overs vs SA
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:13:52 pm
IND vs SA Live Score and Updates: FOUR! Classic Rohit Sharma! Rabada has started off really poorly. A half volley outside off. Rohit says thank you very much and just lifts it over covers for a boundary. India 17/0 in 1.3 overs vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:07:57 pm
FIVE WIDES! That is another erratic delivery from Rabada. This is even worse than the last one. This starts down the leg side and keeps swinging away. Dhawan looks to flick but misses. De Kock dives to his right but only manages a glove to it. It hits the fingertips and goes down the fine leg region. 6 runs and a ball is yet to be bowled in this over. India 10/0 in 1 over vs South Africa
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:04:54 pm
FOUR! India could not have wished for a better start. A poor delivery by Fortuin. A hit-me ball, short and down the leg side, Dhawan pulls it through backward square leg and gets off the mark in style. IND 4/0 in 0.1 overs vs SA
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 07:03:12 pm
IND vs SA Live Updates: We're all set for the start. India's star opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma are at the crease. South Africa are going to open with the left-arm spin of Fortuin. Dhawan will take the strike.

India captain Virat Kohli says, "Going to bat. Looks like a nice wicket. I know it's a ground where teams chase well. Even in the IPL, it's a chasing ground. Heading into the World T20 though, we need to improve areas as a team. We know we're one of the top chasing teams. Batting first is something we're also looking to strengthen. Results are always a priority, but we need to get out of our comfort zone also. Come the World Cup, toss is not in your control, you should be able to perform whether batting or bowling first. Have a few plans in mind, will be looking to executing those. Unchanged team.

India win the toss!

IND vs SA Live Updates: PITCH REPORT - "The surface looks dry, there are a few cracks as well. So it might help the spinners. This is generally a high-scoring ground unless the pitch plays slow. It's a good chasing ground as well. So you might be tempted to bowl first" - reckons Sunil Gavaskar.

The boundaries are small and hence it could be raining SIXES and FOURS...
Sun, 22 Sep 2019 06:17:58 pm
It would be a big opportunity for Rishabh Pant to get among the runs and win the trust of the selectors.

It is expected to be a full house at M. Chinnaswamy and plenty of runs are expected. Also, what is expected is rain. Fans would be praying Bengaluru does not prove to be Dharamsala.

Sun, 22 Sep 2019 05:53:22 pm
IND vs SA Live Score and Updates: On the bowling front, the short boundaries at M Chinnaswamy Stadium could be a temptation for India to pick an extra seamer - Khaleel Ahmed could be a candidate if they are thinking on those lines.

IND vs SA Live Score and Updates: Hello and welcome to our live cricket blog of the third and final T20I of the three-match series between India and South Africa from the iconic M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
LIVE CRICKET SCORE - IND vs SA 3rd T20I ODI BENGALURU.
IND vs SA 3rd T20I Match Live Cricket Score and Updates from M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru: After a commanding performance in Mohali, Team India will aim to seal the three-match series when they enter the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium for the third and final T20I against South Africa on Sunday. With a washout in the first game in Dharamsala, both the teams were looking to take the upper hand and take an unassailable lead in the series in Mohali. However, it was the Men in Blue who took command at the I.S. Bindra stadium and came out with a brilliant performance to secure a rather comfortable win. (LIVE SCORECARD).
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Shreyas Iyer, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini.
Deepak Chahar and Virat Kohli turned out to be the standout performers in Mohali as India cruised to a seven-wicket win against the young Proteas side led by Quinton de Kock. Team India ticked almost all boxes in Mohali where they first restricted the visitors to 149 and then chased down the target riding on their skipper Kohli's unbeaten 72.
Proteas, on the other hand, will have their task cut out. In order to level the series, the mantra for them is actually quite simple: score enough runs, i.e. in excess of 180 and give their bowlers something on the Chinnaswamy pitch which historically has been a high-scoring ground.
