- ICC World T20, 24th Match, Group 2 : Colombo (RPS), October 2, 2012
In a must win game, India needed to win by a specific margin to keep their hopes of reaching the semis alive. After winning the toss, the South African skipper chose to field. The bowlers did a pretty good job to curb the furious India batting line-up at 152/6 in their quota of 20 overs. India needed a magic to stay in the game, which Zaheer Khan provided by dismissing Amla on the second delivery of the innings.
Things were well for India, until Faf du Plessis arrived. His innings of 38-ball-65 changed the game for India, turning it upside down. Although India won by a narrow margin of one run, but the victory was not pleasing as the chance of semis was lost.
