South Africa 140/1 (de Kock 79*, Reeza 28, Bavuma 27*) beat India 134/9 (Dhawan 36, Rabada 3-39, Beuran 2-14, Fortuin 2-19) by 9 wickets

Toss - india

Testing left-arm seam from Beuran Hendricks, making his first appearance of the series, and a breezy half-century from Quinton de Kock led South Africa to a series-levelling nine-wicket win at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

The victory was emphatic, arriving with 3.1 overs still left to play, but South Africa's cause was aided by India's strategy, which was drawn up with one eye on next year's T20 World Cup.

India's middle order of Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, the Pandya brothers, and Ravindra Jadeja - made 70 off 85 balls.

QDK was in terrific form, and there was little India's bowlers could do to stop him. He ran to an unbeaten 79(52) with Reeza Hendricks and Temba Bavuma slipping neatly into his slipstream in partnerships of 76 and 64 (unbroken) for the first two wickets.
