BATTING ON 99, Ajinkya Rahane would probably not have believed his luck with what was dished out to him by Imran Tahir. It was an innocuous delivery on leg stump, which India’s No.6 calmly flicked to square leg for a single.

R Ashwin – master craftsman in form of his life

The Kotla crowd rose to their feet to welcome AB de Villiers, who was coming to play his final innings of the series. Moments before, they had been celebrating Temba Bavuma’s dismissal but AB’s arrival shifted attention. A fascinating contest was about to unfold – world’s best batsman versus the No. 1 off-spinner. And Ravi Ashwin was making his bowling feel like music with the lightness of his fingers.
