Rohit Sharma with 53 from 34 balls with 5 fours and 2 sixes and a finishing knock from Suresh Raina who scored 41 from 23 balls with 2 fours and 3 sixes lifted India to this good total after winning the toss. Virat Kohli who opened the batting also played well for his 19-ball 28 (with 5 fours) before getting cleaned up by an arm ball from the South African Skipper - Johan Botha.
