(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.
