5th ODI: India v South Africa at Mumbai, 28 Nov 2005 [ Scorecard ]

India Innings

  • 20.2 Langeveldt to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, short of a good length delivery, angling across the left-hander, Yuvraj stands tall on the back-foot and drives hard, ball files off the outside edge and races away to the third man fence, lucky runs

  • 21.2 Ntini to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, turned away off the pads to the deep backward square leg region, desperate dive by Langeveldt in the deep fails to stop the boundary - did well to get across quickly but the ball hit him on the knee as he was in contact with the ropes

  • 25.1 Hall to Dravid, FOUR, drifting down the leg side, a horrible delivery to start off with, Dravid gets well inside the line and flicks it away to the fine leg fence, easy runs

  • 26.2 Botha to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, shot! Yuvraj finally decides to go after the spinner, comes down the track, gets to the pitch of the delivery and lofts it away to the wide long-on fence, clean hit

  • 27.2 Hall to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, good length delivery outside the off stump, Yuvraj punches it hard into the ground and the ball goes over the fielder at cover, powerful shot

  • 31.2 Hall to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, pitched up and angling across, Yuvraj drives presenting the full face of the bat and the ball races away past the fielder at mid-on, sweetly timed shot

  • 32.1 Botha to Dravid, FOUR, down the track and bang! nicely gets to the pitch of the delivery and lofts it straight back over the fielder at mid-on

  • 34.3 Langeveldt to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, pitched up on the middle and off stump line and angling across, Yuvraj punches it straight back past the bowler and the ball races away to the long-on fence, was in the air for sometime but Langeveldt hardly got any time to react

  • 37.2 Nel to Dravid, FOUR, pitched up and angling in, Dravid leans forward and drives it straight down the track, comfortably beats the fielder at mid-on and the ball races away to the fence, perfect timing and placement

  • 37.5 Nel to Dhoni, FOUR, good length delivery, moving in, Dhoni drive off the front-foot, ball kisses the inside edge and races away to the fine leg fence - welcome runs for India, Nel is not happy

  • 40.1 Pollock to Dravid, FOUR, good length delivery outside the off stump, excellent line and length, draws Dravid forward in to the drive and produces the edge but the ball goes well wide of the keeper, it's all going India's way at the moment

  • 42.3 Ntini to Dravid, FOUR, short ball but not too short, Dravid pulls awkwardly but the ball races away to the fine leg fence, that's a crucial boundary

  • 42.4 Ntini to Dravid, FOUR, and it gets better for India, Short of a good length delivery produces the edge but Smith at first slip grasses a hard chance and to add to the misery the ball races away to the fence

  • 45.6 Langeveldt to Kaif, FOUR, no stopping that! pitched up and angling in, Kaif gets forward and drives it straight back past the bowler to the long-off fence, fielder at mid-off had no chance of cutting it off

  • 47.3 Langeveldt to Kaif, FOUR, there it is! pitched up in the slot outside the off stump, Kaif comes up with a classic cover drive and the ball races away through extra cover
