Fractured finger rules du Plessis out of ODI, T20I series

Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli who played five pacers in the final Test at Johannesburg vs South Africa cricket team made it clear that spin will return to the armoury with Yuzvendra Chahal being one of his go to man

Indian captain Virat Kohli heaped praise on Ajinkya Rahane calling him a "top class player" after the two stitched a record-breaking 189-run stand for the third wicket, thereby helping India beat South Africa by six wickets in the first ODI on Thursday, February 1. He shared in partnerships of 74 for the sixth wicket with Chris Morris and 56 for the seventh wicket with Phehlukwayo before finally perishing in the final over with four balls left to be bowled.

"I don't think it will be a blueprint for them for the rest of the series, because the wickets we play on will not play into their hands as much. They tied South Africa down, cut off the runs and then got two big scalps of Quinton de Kock and David Miller", he explained.

"He (Kohli) played a great innings and mixed it up with a lot of aggression". In the process of chasing the 270-run target, skipper Virat Kohli smashed a gob-smacking ton, his 33rd ODI hundred to be exact.

Alphabet Inc (GOOGL) Revenue up 24%, Earnings Miss the Mark
Alphabet generated $32.3 billion in revenue during the fourth quarter, up 24% from the same period a year ago . Apple sold 77.3 million iPhones during the 3 months, down 1 percent from a year earlier.

"We know he's the backbone of their batting line-up", Du Plessis said of his India counterpart.

While talking about the first ODI, Du Plessis said, "It's honestly what I felt yesterday after training for the first time".

The spinners took quick wickets thereafter and did not allow South Africa's partnerships to settle even as 100 came up in the 21st over. Faf du Plessis would have been looking to Tahir to provide him with the crucial breakthroughs but none were forthcoming. So it will depend upon the final score of Africa after 50 overs. Picking up one or two wickets in the top ten is what we wanted to do.

India pulled off their first ODI win over South Africa at Durban with some authority on Thursday. Wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal too have found a place in the playing eleven with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya being the medium-pacers. Apart from this, India also played two triangular series in 1996-97 and 2001-02, which included teams from Zimbabwe and Kenya, but both of them emerged from the victor of South Africa.

Du Plessis made 120 in a South African total of 269 for eight after they won the toss and batted on a slow pitch. You could feel that mentally they were still a bit drained. It's a pretty easy decision because of the conditions around.
