Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh yesterday applauded the Indian bowlers' performance in the do-or-die clash against South Africa, saying it was a perfect example of how not to give away cheap runs.

"It was a fantastic bowling effort from India. The pacers did a great job by bowling dot balls in the first 10 overs. It was the perfect example of how not to give away cheap runs. It surely must have made South Africa go on the back foot. That effort went a long way in helping India dominate South Africa," Harbhajan wrote in his column for the ICC's official website.
