Pragyan Ojha strikes and this time it is Sachin Tendulkar, who takes the catch. Puttick was getting desperate and went for the big shot and is now gone. Another wicket goes down for South Africa. Jacques Rudolph, left handed bat, comes to the crease. Score after 9 overs, SAL: 60/2
Van Wyk is trapped LBW after scoring 26 off 24 balls. Brilliant effort by the right-hander as he smashed 4 fours and 1 six handing SA Legends a fine start in their chase.
South Africa Legends have kicked off their chase in a good manner ! So far five have been bowled and they have not lost any wicket. Despite the target being huge, it seems like the Proteas want to keep their wickets intact before going all guns blazing. Score after 5 overs, SAL: 34/0
Gony in to bowl the 4th and that’s a dropped catch, which goes for a six as well. Ojha tried but it was not easy. A four follows. van Wyk is in great form. SAL 28/0 after 4 overs
Rahul Sharma in for the 3rd over and that’s a four in through the gap by van Wyk. Good comeback by the bowler as the next 3 balls are dots. SAL 16/0 after 3 overs
We are back live and Irfan Pathan has the ball for India Legends. Puttick and van Wyk are at the crease. Puttick is on strike. Great fielding by Yuvraj Singh as the first 3 balls are dots. And Puttick swings and sends one to the boundary. And another!!! Great start by the South Africa Legends. SAL 8/0 after 1 over
Last over now and that’s a six to start this over by Yusuf Pathan. India Legends have crossed 200. Absolute domination. And that’s another four!! What timing by Pathan. The last ball is hit for a flat six as INDL finish at 217/4 after 20 overs

Binny starts the 17t over with a four and then takes a single to bring up his half century. Very well played. INDL 148/4 after 16.2 overs

That’s high from Yuvraj and that has just found the fielder. The fans are disappointed after Yuvi’s innings ends prematurely. INDL 129/4 after 14.3 overs

This is a sight we all love to watch! Yuvraj Singh taking guard and ready to explode. He is on four off just five balls. Score after 14 overs, INDL: 124/3
