Image Source : BCCI IMAGES Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa 5th ODI - Hardik Pandya celebrates with teammates after picking up a wicket

(India vs South Africa, Live Cricket & Live Streaming 1st T20I) Jubilation scenes in the Indian dressing room as they have bowled brilliantly to defend 275. Especially after the start, the South Africans got. They were off to a flier as the opening stand stitched a 50-run stand. However, once the ball got a little soft they started losing wickets in quick succession. They lost three quick wickets, that too big ones of Markram, Duminy and de Villiers. David Miller and Hashim Amla did try to rebuild with a 62-run stand but once the former departed it was always going to be an uphill task. With the pitch getting slower and slower, runs was not easy to come by. Amla did try his best as he tried batting through. He did get his half ton up but was run out at the wrong time. Klaasen too played a decent hand but it was never going to be enough.

India on the other hand, failed to finish off well especially after the start given by their batsmen earlier in the day. However, they came back strongly with the ball. First with Pandya who took the two important scalps of AB de Villiers and JP Duminy and Kuldeep towards the end who ended up with figures of 4/57 to give India a comprehensive win. Here you can follow the Live Cricket Score, India vs South Africa 5th ODI.

    OUT! Chahal gets him the next ball! 4 wickets in the last 7 balls. Chahal tosses it up on off, it turns back in sharply. Morkel tries to work it with the spin but misses to get hit on the pads. The player appeals and the umpire agrees. All smiles on the Indian faces as they have WON BY 73 RUNS AND ALSO THE SERIES WITH A GAME IN HAND!

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:58 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    OUT! Brilliant by Pandya, that has stuck. Shamsi bags a golden duck and Kuldeep gets two-in-two. He flights the ball on middle, Shamsi tries to loft it but does not get the distance. He only hits it high up in the air towards long on. There are two fielders going for it, Pandya and Dhawan. I don't think anybody there calls mine but Pandya in the end from long off runs towards it, sticks a hand out and plucks the ball out of thin air. Fourth wicket for Kuldeep and he is now on a hat-trick. India are now a wicket away. SA 197/9 in 41.5 overs, need 78 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:57 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    OUT!  Stumped! There is the final nail in the coffin! Second in the over for Kuldeep. He once again is brave enough to toss it up outside off, it turns away further. Klaasen dances down the track and reaches for it but can't connect. Dhoni behind collects the ball and whips the bails off in a flash. Third one for Kuldeep and good innings but Klaasen comes to an end. He did try his best but was running out of partners. India are two wickets away now from a series win. SA 197/8 in 41.4 overs, need 78 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:54 PM IST)

    OUT! Caught! Rabada is walking back. All those dots have brought about his wicket. Yadav tosses it up on middle, Rabada tries to go big but it goes off the inner half towards Chahal at short mid-wicket who completes the catch. Kohli gives Rabada a send off before the walks back and South Africa are now staring down the barrel.. SA 196/7 in 41.2 overs, need 79 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:48 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Powerplay 3 has been signalled now! 5 fielders can be placed outside the ring. 83 needed in 60. Chahal is back into the attack now.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:46 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Yes, no, yes, no but no harm done! A slower ball on off, Klaasen defends it towards the off side. He sets off for a run and so does Rabada but seeing the fielder get to it quickly the non-striker's says no. Klaasen though turns and makes it in in time. SA 192/6 in 40 overs, need 83 runs to win vs IND

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:42 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Well, Kagiso must have been hurt there as he is receiving some treatment. What South Africa would not want now is the bouncer playing on Kagiso's mind. He though now seems fine to continue, after a few words from Klaasen.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:41 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    That has hit the badge! A sharp bouncer, a well-directed one. Rabada tries to pull but is late on it. The ball hits him flush on the helmet. Good gesture by Pandya as he asks him whether he is okay. Not sure whether Rabada would have done the same. SA 189/6 in 39 overs, need 86 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:35 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    SIX! Make that 16 runs from the over! Not an easy shot to play. Short and on middle, Klaasen rocks back and just lifts it with a lot of power and over the fence behind the bowler. SA 187/6 in 38 overs, need 88 runs to win

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:34 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    FOUR! 10 runs from the over so far! A bad ball and Kuldeep pays the price. Short and on middle, Klaasen goes back and pulls it hard through square leg. Chahal runs to his left but dives over the ball and it crosses the fence.​ SA 181/6 in 37.4 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:33 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    SIX! Many more needed! Comes down the track, gets to the pitch of it and just dispatches it over long off for a biggie. The runs required is under 100 now. SA 177/6 in 37.1 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:32 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Crunched but straight to the fielder! On a length outside off, cracked through covers for a run. 3 runs from the over. SA 171/6 in 37 overs, need 104 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:27 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    WICKET! Kuldeep removes Phehlukwayo for nought. TIMBER! Another one bites the dust! Beautiful from Kuldeep. He tosses it up on off, bowls the wrong 'un. It turns into the batsman, completely foxes him as he tries to defend. It sneaks through bat and pad and hits the top of leg stump. Yadav gets his first and India are now 4 wickets away. SA 168/6, need 107 runs to win.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:18 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    WICKET! Hashim Amla run out for 71 runs. Amla is just short and he has been run out. A big wicket, a big, big one and it is in the form of a run out. Just what South Africa did not want. However, brilliant by Pandya, he is having an excellent night out there. A length ball is pushed towards him and the batsmen set off for a run. He is quick to the ball and hits bull's eye at the bowler's end. They appeal, not a confident one but the umpire just to be sure goes upstairs and guess what? Amla is short and is given his marching orders. The Indians are ecstatic as they know they now have the game in their hands. A good innings nevertheless by Amla comes to an end but the hosts needed more. India are now 5 wickets away from taking the series.

     

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:15 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    REVIEW! A breakthrough for India? A direct hit at the non-striker's end and have India got the wicket they want? Amla is the man in question. India don't look confident though. 

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:12 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    FOUR! Amla finds the gap. Sheer timing. That is classic Hashim Amla! A delight an absolute delight to the eyes there. Short and on off, Amla rocks back and punches it through covers for the boundary they needed. SA 165/4, need 110 runs to win.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 11:10 PM IST)

    FOUR! Amla aims it to extra cover, gets a boundary. Gets it through and that will release the pressure for the moment. Full and on off, driven through covers. It beats the diving mid off fielder and goes into the fence. 115 more needed now.​ SA 160/4 in 33 overs.

    Yuzvendra Chahal to Hashim Amla, no run. Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 9 runs from the over, they needed a good one and they need to continue scoring.​SA 148/4, need 127 runs to win.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:53 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Fifty for Amla, his 35th in ODI. It has been a patient knock by the opener. His job is though not done yet. He needs to bat all the way. He chips this ball over the bowler's head and bags a brace. SA 134/4 in 29 overs, need 141 runs to win vs India (274/7)

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:52 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    A big appeal from Chahal but not given! Chahal gives it air around leg, it turns back in. Amla goes down to sweep but misses. Chahal asks the question but the umpire shakes his head. Pitching would have been an issue there. But wait, Hawk Eye does not agree with me there, it shows three reds, which means it was out. Only if India had not wasted their review though.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:49 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Runs scoring is not easy here, Klaasen is finding out. A full ball on off, stays low. The batsman tries to drive but gets an inside edge onto the leg side. Just 2 runs from the over. SA 130/4 in 28 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:46 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    OUT! Knocks him over! There goes Miller, Chahal gets the breakthrough. He tosses it up, inviting Miller to go after him. David does so by coming down the track. He swings but is beaten by the low bounce and the ball clips the leg pole. The 62-run stand has been broken and a disappointed Miller walks back. He knew he had to stay out there. Nevertheless, a timely wicket for India and they are back on top now. SA 127/4 in 26.4 overs, need 148 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

     

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:44 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    FOUR! Excellent shot! A much-needed boundary for the hosts. A bad ball to be honest, down the leg side. Amla sweeps it very fine down the leg side and the ball races away. SA 127/4 in 26.1 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:39 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    DROPPED! Straight to Rahane but put down! India don't look like in a mood to catch the ball today. Pandya bangs it short outside off, Amla cuts it hard but uppishly towards Rahane who is safe as houses but this time can't hang on to it. It went to him quickly but he should have taken it. A reprieve for Amla. Will this prove costly? SA 120/3 in 25.3 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:37 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    IN THE AIR... SAFE! Full and outside off, Amla comes down the track and looks to go over the top. But he miscues it towards cover. Shreyas Iyer comes running in from sweeper and dives forward but the ball lands well in front. Two runs taken. 158 more needed from 154 balls.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:32 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Outside off from Pandya, Miller runs it down to third man for a single. SA 114/3 in 24 overs, need 161 runs to win vs IND

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:29 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Change of pace. Kohli brings on Hardik Pandya. Would not want the batsmen to get used to a particular bowler.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:28 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Full and down the leg side from Chahal, David looks to sweep but gets a bit of a top edge down to fine leg. Just a run. SA 110/3 in 23 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:24 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Yuzvendra Chahal getting some attention from the physio. He seems to be in a bit of pain.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:24 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa 5th ODI

    BANG! Terrific shot, excellent stop from Chahal. Full on middle, Miller charged down the track and hammered it down the ground. That came back like a rocket and Chahal actually did well to stick out his left hand. Tough to call that a dropped chance. Fortunately for him, it is not his bowling hand.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:23 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa 5th ODI

    Lucky! Outside off, the googly, Amla does not read it and goes hard at it. Gets a thick inside edge which goes past the stumps to fine leg! Two runs taken. 5 runs from Kuldeep's over. SA 107/3 in 22 overs, need 168 runs to win

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:17 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    100 UP FOR SOUTH AFRICA. 175 more needed from 178 balls. Pretty straight and full, David uses his long reach and sweeps it behind square leg for a single.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:15 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Outside off from Kuldeep, Miller looks to cut but gets a bottom edge towards point. Just a single, 4 runs from the over. SA 99/3 in 20 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:11 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    Floated on middle, Amla looks to flick but gets a leading edge towards long off. A run taken. Excellent comeback from Chahal - 6 off his first ball, just 2 off the next 5. SA 95/3 in 19 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:07 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    SIX! Clean as a whistle. Tossed up on middle and leg, Miller comes down the track and sends this a long way back over the sightscreen, That side of the boundary itself is 78 metres and it looked to be going a good 15 metres beyond that.​ SA 93/3 in 18.1 overs, need 182 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:05 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    NOT OUT. Missing the stumps. India lose a review. Strange review from India. Perhaps they thought, the ball would clip the stumps at least, so their review will not be lost. However, it is not to be so. Miller looked to defend a fairly straight ball and missed, getting hit on the pads. It was pitched around middle and spun in quite a long way, meaning that there was very little chance of it hitting the stumps. Chahal was confident though and Dhoni supported him. Kohli wasted no time in signalling for the review and Hawk Eye did not waste any time either in indicating that the ball would spin down leg. Kohli is shocked. 'MISSING?' he quips. SA 85/3 in 17 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:02 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa 5th ODI

    HOWZZAT? The umpire says not out. Chahal is confident he has his man. Kohli looks at Dhoni, then takes the review.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 10:00 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa 5th ODI

    Spin from both ends now. Yuzvendra Chahal into the attack.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 9:56 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa 5th ODI

    DRINKS BREAK. Excellent passage of play for India. They were unlucky in the first 9 overs but Markram's wicket has opened the floodgates. With AB de Villiers gone, someone will have to play a blinder of an innings to take South Africa even close to India's total, let alone haul it.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 9:55 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa 5th ODI

    FOUR! Had he missed, he would have been a dead duck. Very full from Kuldeep, Miller pre-meditates his sweep shot and luckily for the batsman, he does not miss the ball. It travels like a rocket and goes through mid-wicket.​ SA 83/3 in 16 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 9:50 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    FOUR! Terrific shot. Miller walks across his stumps and clips it through square leg. No man is seen on the leg side and the batsman gets a boundary.​ SA 71/2 in 14.2 overs

  • (13 Feb 2018, 9:45 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa 5th ODI

    OUT! There goes the match and the series! Too early to say? AB de Villiers has come and gone and India are all over South Africa like a rash. 3 wickets in the span of 20 balls. Hardik gets his second wicket in his second over. And we are not even properly into the spinners yet. All the best, South Africa. Coming to the ball, de Villiers flashes hard to a length delivery and does not move his feet. Only gets a thick outside edge and Dhoni does the rest. Hardik Pandya is all smiles. Now talk about 275 to chase... . SA 65/3 in 12.5 overs, need 210 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

  • (13 Feb 2018, 9:43 PM IST)

    Live Cricket Score Updates, India vs South Africa 5th ODI

    'NA NA!' shouts Dhoni. But Kuldeep gets away with that. A full toss outside off, de Villiers smashes it through the covers. Does not run, thinking that it will be a boundary but Rohit Sharma covers good ground to his left from long off and dives to stop the ball. Now de Villiers puts in the hard yards and returns for the second. 7 runs from Kuldeep's over.  SA 62/2 in 12 overs, need 213 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

    AB de Villiers walks in at number 4, replacing Duminy. A truckload of responsibility lies on the shoulders of him and Amla. Another quick wicket and this game could be done and dusted.

  • (13 Feb 2018, 9:39 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa, 5th ODI

    OUT! Edged and taken! Pandya has struck in his opening over and the South African middle order is exposed again. A length ball outside off, Duminy pushes at it without moving his feet and only gets a thick outside edge. Straight into the hands of Rohit Sharma at first slip who makes no mistake. Another failure for JP. 2 wickets in 8 balls for India. SA 55/2 in 10.5 overs, need 220 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

    OUT! Markram's luck finally runs out. India have broken through, just towards the closing stages of Powerplay 1. A length ball, on middle, Aiden looks to flick but gets a leading edge. Luckily for India, there is a mortal standing underneath it. Virat Kohli is the name. Takes the catch and then is pumped up with anger written everywhere on his face. But the Proteas have managed a good opening stand. Upto the middle order now. SA 52/1 in 9.4 overs, need 223 runs to win vs IND (274/7)

    The ring of fielders on the leg side nearly produces a wicket. Virat has two men in the deep, both on the leg side and also two men catching at mid-wicket. So Aiden moves to the leg side and looks to go off side but the ball hits the toe end of the bat and lobs over cover. Two runs were taken, 6 runs from the over. SA 23/0 in 5 overs

Outside off, on a length, Bhuvi looks to run it down to third man but is a tad late in opening the face of his bat. The ball runs off the outside edge, past the keeper, through the vacant slip cordon and to the third man fence. Not too long ago, there was a slip for Bhuvi.

A short ball down the leg side, Rohit looked to pull but missed. There was a noise as the ball went past and the South Africans kept on appealing. However, the umpire shook his head.

There was always one available as it was Morne Morkel strolling around at mid on. But Rohit did not think there was a single on offer. His mistake. Now let us focus on Rahane's error. He is looking at Rohit and running but does not want to accept that Rohit does not want the run! Why? He had enough time to stop and then turn back but he kept on running, till he reached within handshaking distance. Eventually, he decided to turn but it was too late even though Morkel took ages to return that throw. One bounce and to the keeper. Heinrich Klaasen did not make any mistake. It was Rohit's mistake, yes, but there was enough time for Rahane to turn before he eventually did.
