India seemed to be heading to a comfortable win in a 238-run defence as South Africa slipped to 1/2 and then 47/3 just after the PowerPlay. It was at that delicate juncture that David Miller joined a lumbering Quinton de Kock in the middle. Overs 11 and 12 reaped 32 runs as Miller hit a pair of boundaries off Harshal Patel and then swatted two sixes and a four off R Ashwin. Another six off a slot ball from Arshdeep saw Miller crack a 25-ball half-century. His partner de Kock, meanwhile, gained hitting rhythm in the 15th over as Axar conceded 18.
