  • 23:10 (IST)

    IND vs SA: India win!!!

    India have won the game by 16 runs. With it, they also seal the series 2-0 with a match to go. South Africa fought well as David Miller hit 106 off 47 balls and Quinton de Kock too contributed with a 69 not out off 48 balls but one has to admit that India had an edge ever since they posted a daunting total of 237/3 on the board in the first innings.

  • 23:07 (IST)

    Live Score: Back-to-back SIXES! Century for David Miller!

    David Miller has raved to his century in 46 balls. This is a really special knock from the southpaw. Had the other South African batters also done bit better, the result of the game could have been something else. Nonetheless, take a bow Mr. “Killer” Miller.

    SA 214/3 (19.3)

  • 23:04 (IST)

    IND vs SA Live Score: 26-run over from Arshdeep Singh

    Miller did a Miller in the penultimate over as he smacked Arshdeep Singh for two sixes and two fours. A total of 26 runs came off the over and South Africa need 37 more to win off the final 6 balls.

    SA 201/3 (19)

  • 23:01 (IST)

    IND vs SA T20 Match: FOUR!

    A four from David Miller towards point region to Arshdeep Singh. South Africa need 49 more in 9 balls. This game might well be over for South Africa, but for a young Arshdeep, it is a good opportunity to gain the experience of bowling in slog overs in an international game.

    SA 189/3 (18.3) 

  • 22:57 (IST)

    Live Score: South Africa need 63 runs in 12 balls

    This game now seems well out of South Africa’s reach now. They need 31.5 runs per over from here and Rohit Sharma and company are only 12 balls away from sealing the series, unless some magic happens at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium.

    SA 175/3 (18)

  • 22:50 (IST)

    IND vs SA Live Score: South Africa need 74 runs in 18 balls

    Only 8 runs came off the last over bowled by Deepak Chahar and the required run rate for South Africa goes over 24 now. They need 74 runs to win in 18 balls. It is not that the duo of Miller and de Kock are not playing well, it is rather the cushion of some extra 20-30 runs that has always kept India ahead since the start of this chase.

    SA 164/3 (17)

  • 22:40 (IST)

    India vs South Africa Live Score: Back-to-back FOURS!

  • 21:55 (IST)

    Live Score: WICKET!

    Aiden Markram has been cleaned up by Axar Patel. This is a big-big wicket for India as Markram was looking really dangerous at the crease. Axar pitched the ball around middle stump before it spun and rattled Markram’s off stump. Markram departed for 19-ball 33.

  • 21:16 (IST)

    IND vs SA T20 Match: Issue of lights on ground

    One of the light towers is not working, hence the play has been stopped for a while. South Africa are way behind in this game at just the start of their innings and the reason is a big target they are chasing and the two wickets they have lost so far.

  • 20:26 (IST)

    Live Score: SIX! Fifty for Suryakumar Yadav!

    Suryakumar Yadav has races to his fifty in only 18 balls. This is literally insane from the batter. He has got his opportunities in international cricket after a big delay and he is taking the revenge by outclassing the opponent bowlers. It’s a no-ball meanwhile.

    IND 178/2 (16)

  • 20:20 (IST)

    Live Score Updates: FOUR!

    This is poor bowling from the South African bowlers but equally good batting from Suryakumar Yadav. With both point and third man fielder inside the circle, Ngidi bowled a slower short ball way outside off-stump. SKY knew he just needed to play it over the fielders for a four. This is exactly what happened after that.
