South Africa Dominate India

There was a time when India were dominating the chase with a 92-run stand between Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan. But their wickets in quick succession switched the momentum in South Africa’s favour. Indian middle-order got exposed once again with Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Venkatesh Iyer failed to live up to the expectations. While Shardul Thakur played a responsible 50* run knock which was required from someone from the middle order. Temba Bavuma impressed many with his captaincy antics today as he made the right calls at the right time which worked in his and the team’s favour. With the win, India are 0-1 down in the series and have a tough task ahead in the series.

South Africa beat India by 31 runs

And it’s done and dusted at Boland Park as South Africa beat India by 31 runs to take 1-0 lead in the series. Excellent final over from Lungi Ngidi, he had a lot of runs to defend but the lanky pacer didn’t bowl any loose delivery. Meanwhile, Shardul Thakur completes his half-century on the final ball of the game. A clinical show from South Africa to pin India down once again on this tour. SA 196/4 beat IND 265/8 by 31 runs

Five runs from the penultimate over from Tabraiz Shami and South Africa are just minutes closers to an emphatic win here. Shardul Thakur is fighting hard with the bat here but it seems like it’s not enough. IND 259/8 in 49 overs

Shardul Thakur Is On Fire!

Shardul Thakur finally decided to free his arms and he smashed Lungi Ngidi for two fours and a six. India still need 43 runs off 12 balls and the odds are still in Proteas favour. Shardul needs to do something extraordinary here. IND 254/8 in 48 overs

67 runs are required of the last four overs and only two wickets are left. The odds are not in India’s favour. The match is going in South Africa’s way and something magical from Lord Shardul Thakur’s bat can only make something of this game. IND 230/8 in 46 overs

It’s interesting how India are going to take this game forward. Will Shardul go for his shots or he will look to stop South Africa to bundle out India. Nothing is going in India’s favour at the moment. IND 224/8 in 45 overs

Shamsi Strikes Again!

And the Shamsi-Bavuma duo sends another batter back to the pavilion and this time it’s Bhuvneshwar Kumar. South Africa are inches closer to a clinical win here. A dismal batting performance from India apart from Dhawan and Kohli. IND 214/8 in 43 overs

A lot of responsibility is on Shardul Thakur to make something out of this match. He hit a couple of boundaries in the last over which was proof that he can bat and needs some support from the others to take the game closer. IND 211/7 in 41 overs

India Lose Another Wicket!

South Africa are all over India at the moment. Shardul Thakur and Ravichandran Ashwin have the capability to pull off a heist here but it will not be an easy task for them as the required run rate is now jumped over 8. Something special is required from these two in the middle. IND 197/6 in 38 overs

Another Wicket For South Africa as Venkatesh Iyer Departs!

OUT! Venkatesh Iyer fails to shine on his debut and is dismissed on just 2. Short ball from Lungi Ngidi and Iyer pulled it over mid-wicket where Rassie van der Dussen takes a comfortable catch. India are in massive trouble now. IND 188/6 in 35.5 overs

RISHABH PANT DEPARTS!

OUT! Once again India lose wickets in quick successions as Rishabh Pant is walking back towards the pavilion. Excellent wicketkeeping by Quinton de Kock as he stumped Pant in a flash of a second to put his team on top. A very big breakthrough for South Africa. IND 182/5 in 34 overs

Ngidi Removes Iyer!

OUT! A crucial wicket for South Africa as Lungi Ngidi gets the better of Shreyas Iyer who was looking in decent touch.

South Africa pacers have been underwhelming so far today as they failed to hit the right line and length.

Rishabh Pant is riding high on confidence after the terrific century in the second innings of third Test. He is the kind of player who can change the game in minutes with his explosive batting. The platform has been set by Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli and Pant-Iyer have to take it forward. IND 168/3 in 32 overs

Tabraiz Shamsi gets the massive wicket and South Africa are back in the game. IND 152/3 in 28.2 overs

Virat Kohli Hits Half-Century!

And it’s the 63rd half-century for Virat Kohli. The former India captain is looking in sublime touch here and playing risk-free shots to not give the opposition any chance. He took 60 balls to his fifty. The 33-year-old is going to be the key for India in this chase. IND 150/2 in 27.4 overs

team as the Indian middle-order got exposed once again which cost the team big in a 297-run chase.

Twin tons from skipper Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen made sure South Africa post an imposing total of 296/4 in the first ODI against India. They had won the toss and opted to bat; however, the decision back-fired as they lost opener Janneman Malan early to Bumrah. Then Ashwin struck as he removed dangerman Quinton de Kock to reduce them to 61/2. Meanwhile, debutante Venkatesh Iyer’s sharp throw found Aiden Markram short of crease as SA were reduced to 68/3. Later, Van der Dussen launched a counter-attack as he helped skipper Bavuma forge a rescue act after early hiccups.

South Africa captain Temba Bavuma won the toss and opted to bat first against India in the series-opening first ODI at Boland Park on Wednesday.

India will be led by KL Rahul for the first time in ODIs with Virat Kohli being replaced in the format last year ahead of the selection meeting for the South Africa tour.

The tourists have given debut to allrounder Venkatesh Iyer.

The mighty Virat Kohli’s presence in the Indian playing eleven as a mere player for the first time in seven years will be keenly followed while his potential successor in red-ball cricket, K L Rahul, will be judged for his captaincy in the three-match ODI series against South Africa beginning from Wednesday.

Whether he is batting in the middle or fielding at the boundary line, Kohli’s every move is tracked but some of that attention will now have to be shared by Rahul.

More importantly, will he be at his usual animated best on the field or will the cricketing world see a rather subdued Kohli after his stunning resignation from Test captaincy brought an end to his innings as official leader of the team across formats?

He did not want to leave ODI captaincy after relinquishing the role in the shortest format and it led to a war of words with the BCCI on how the entire matter was handled.

His supporters and Indian cricket in general will be hoping that Kohli has put his differences with the BCCI firmly behind him and come Wednesday, he starts a new innings with his willow doing most of the talking. A highly desired century after two years would be cherry on top.

Rahul, who is leading the side in the absence of an injured Rohit Sharma, is expected to turn to Kohli for advice during the series. Not only Kohli has a major role to play as a batter, but as vice-captain Jasprit Bumrah said on the eve of the series, the star “will always be a leader” in the team.

With the new leadership and support staff, India will look to win the series with one eye on preparations for the 2023 World Cup and also make up for the disappointment of unexpectedly going down in the Tests last week.

The last time a full strength India played an ODI series was at home against England in March before a second string squad travelled to Sri Lanka in July.

Rahul batted in the middle-order against England but it remains to be seen if he moves back to the top alongside Shikhar Dhawan.

Ruturaj Gaikwad, who made the squad following an exceptional domestic season, might have to wait longer for his ODI debut.

It will be crucial three games for the seasoned Dhawan, who has already lost his place in the T20 side.

The southpaw has thrived under pressure in the past and will be looking to solidify his position as the first-choice opener alongside Rohit when the latter returns from injury.

Kohli will bat at his usual number three spot while there will be a toss-up between Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer for the number four position.

Rishabh Pant is expected to come at number five while Venkatesh Iyer is likely to make his 50-over debut as the all-rounder at six, having shown promise in the T20s against New Zealand.

The two spinners likely to play are Yuzvendra Chahal and R Ashwin, who has made a comeback after more than four years.

Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will share the load in the pace department while for the third pace option, the management could pick Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur or Prasidh Krishna.

Mohammad Siraj, who injured his hamstring during the Test series, is also fit as suggested by Bumrah on Monday.

On the previous tour, India hammered the hosts 5-1 in ODIs and they will draw confidence from that.

South Africa will be in high spirits after a memorable victory in the five-day format.

Skipper Temba Bavuma played a few crucial in the preceding Tests and he will carry that confidence into his batting as well as his leadership.

Quinton de Kock, who retired from Test cricket after the series opener against India, starts his life as a white-ball only player.

Tall left-arm pacer Marco Jansen, who excelled in his maiden Test series, is expected to trouble the Indian batters with his extra bounce and variations in the short format after earning a maiden call-up.

If Tests were any indication, the ODIs would be an intensely-fought affair.
