Murali magic

It's been a while coming -- but it's come for India at just the right time: a probing, sustained spell by Murali Karthik in which, uncharacteristically, he didn't lapse in concentration even once.
The figures here tell the story: 15 runs off 61 deliveries; 51 of those dot balls, 7 singles, one two and just one four off him. Without this spell, which turned tighter the screws Bajji had applied, South Africa could still have gotten away to a better position in the set-up phase ahead of the slog, but those ten overs have pretty much torpedoed the Proteas here.
