Cricinfo: South Africa in India 2005-06


4th ODI: India v South Africa at Kolkata, 25 Nov 2005 [ Scorecard ]

India Innings

  • 17.2 Hall to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, wayward delivery outside the off stump, enough width to free his arms and Yuvraj drives it through backward point, had to stretch to get to the ball but he timed it to perfection

  • 21.6 Hall to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, good length delivery down the leg side, as easy as it gets - Yuvraj shuffles across, gets well inside the line and works it away to the fine leg fence - welcome boundary for India

  • 22.3 Langeveldt to Kaif, FOUR, good length delivery outside the off stump, bit too wide, Kaif pushes forward and punches it away through cover point for a fantastic boundary - looked like a gentle push but the ball races away to the fence - excellent timing

  • 22.5 Langeveldt to Kaif, FOUR, pitched up in the slot outside the off stump, Kaif gets forward and lofts it away over extra cover - just backed himself and hit through the line, fielder in the deep had no chance of cutting it off - good positive shot that

  • 25.5 Kallis to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, short of a good length delivery, Yuvraj drives standing tall on the back-foot, ball kisses the edge and races away to the third man fence, luckily for Yuvraj the ball went well wide of Smith at first slip

  • 26.3 Langeveldt to Kaif, FOUR, short ball, angling in from outside the off stump, Kaif flat bats it straight back past the fielder at mid-on, more of a tennis back-hand shot

  • 27.5 Kallis to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, bowled from round the stumps, it's too short and at this pace it's a gift - just stood up there to be hit and Yuvraj pulled it away to the vacant midwicket fence

  • 32.3 Morkel to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, lovely shot! good length delivery outside the off stump, Yuvraj shuffles forward and drives it away through covers - nothing wrong with the delivery, Yuvraj just picked his spot and hit through the line

  • 32.4 Morkel to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, more runs! attempted yorker, Yuvraj gets well forward, takes it on the full and hammers it right into the gap between mid-off and cover

  • 37.1 Botha to Kaif, FOUR, tossed up outside the off stump, driven all along the ground to the cover fence, superb shot

  • 39.6 Nel to Agarkar, FOUR, bit of width outside the off stump and Agarkar goes after it, ball clips the edge and flies over the slip cordon
