Fortuin to Iyer, FOUR runs, finishes off the match by skipping down the track and getting to the pitch to drill a bullet straight drive into the fence.

6
Fortuin to Kohli, SIX runs, down the track and his timing has been surreal all through. Picks it up and carts him over long-on without even a big flourish of the bat
17.1
6
Rabada to Kohli, SIX runs, What. A. Shot. This is Kohli just toying with the bowling. Length ball from Rabada at pace on leg stump, and he goes back and nonchalantly flicks it off his pads. It's such great timing that it carries all the way past the boundary. Without even trying to hit it hard

Phehlukwayo to Kohli, FOUR runs, bowler compensates for Kohli's saunter down the track by bowling too short but Kohli stays put this time and flays a cut through point
16.1
4
Phehlukwayo to Kohli, FOUR runs, down the track and that's just unbelievable timing! Gets to fifty too. Looked for all the world like it was a shot for two runs. He had stroked it, gently not with punch, through extra cover, but the timing was so good it just kept going till it reached the boundary
14.2
4
Nortje to Iyer, FOUR runs, edged through slip. He was looking to run it down in that area, but not quite as fine as it went, ended up not being in control of it. Eludes a diving de Kock
10.6
6
Fortuin to Dhawan, SIX runs, slog-swept into oblivion. Dhawan has had enough of nudging and pushing, spots the opportunity to go big, with the ball in the slot for the slog sweep and unleashes a ferocious one to send it deep into the midwicket stands
8.3
4
Pretorius to Dhawan, FOUR runs, walloped straight back over the bowler's head. Suddenly feels like Dhawan and Kohli have adjusted to the slower pace after the opening burst. This was stump to stump and Dhawan took a step forward and punched it powerfully, once bounce into the boundary
8.1
6
Pretorius to Kohli, SIX runs, dismissed. Down the track and a flowing drive over extra cover, giving himself room and allowing the arms to swing freely through the line
5.1
4
Phehlukwayo to Kohli, FOUR runs, on the up drive to extra cover's left off a good length ball. amazing shot, and shape
4.4
4
Pretorius to Kohli, FOUR runs, regal. Effortless flick off his toes through midwicket. Not the best ball, there to be picked off, but there's few who can pick them off better than Kohli
2.2
4
Rabada to Dhawan, FOUR runs, and now he chops it down to third man, at ease scoring in the V between third man and long-off apparently! Length ball closer to off and he almost guides it past the keeper
2.1
4
Rabada to Dhawan, FOUR runs, smoked through extra cover almost nonchalantly. Room outside off and he goes with his hands to drive on the up, hitting through the line and sending the ball screaming
1.5
6
Nortje to Sharma, SIX runs, slammed again. Back of a length and angling into him, he moves inside the line opens up and pulls this waaaay over square leg. When he's hitting them like that, you can't do much
1.3
6
Nortje to Sharma, SIX runs, imperious. That's the Rohit pull shot you can write paens about. Rocks back and slams it way over square leg, didn't even seem to try and hit it very hard.
0.4
4
Rabada to Dhawan, FOUR runs, magnificent timing, cuts it from fairly close to his body and sends it screaming to the backward point boundary. Nortje at the third man boundary tries to tumble and save after running square, but his body has touched the boundary triangle cushions before getting rid of the ball so that might be a four. and it is a four
