India aim to exert pressure on depleted Proteas in 2nd ODI

South Africa celebrates a wicket during the first ODI in Durban on Thursday

The bowling department has delivered well except for pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, having an off day but the spin duo of chinaman Kuldeep (3/34) and Chahal (2/45) have been impressive in what was their maiden outing on South African soil.

So did the calm and composed Rahane who scored his fifth consecutive half-century in ODIs.

Indian wrist-spinners, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, bundled up Faf du Plessis-less South Africa for mere 118 runs in 32.2 overs. They are already trailing in the series having lost the first two games but injuries continue to haunt South Africa.

There was also a telling contribution of 84 (98 balls, 8 fours, 1 six) from opener and Player of the Match Smriti Mandhana as the tourists posted a competitive 213 for seven after winning the toss and batting.

Shujaa's run at Hamilton sevens comes to an end
Kenya Sevens managed to collect 12 points and a sixth-place finish in the just-concluded Hamilton Sevens in New Zealand. Australia, winners of the Sydney 7s and Bronze final in Hamilton , are drawn in Pool C with Samoa , USA and Spain.

Yuzvendra Chahal revealed captain Virat Kohli gives the team's wrist-spinners enough freedom to bowl to their strengths, which according to him has been the reason for their success in South Africa.

India's top-order has done reasonably well in the opening ODI barring the odd mix-up between Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli, which led to an unfortunate run-out of the southpaw. Farhaan Behardien has been named as his replacement, and Devilliers is still out with injury.

Quinton De Kock no doubt is a man short of confidence. If they can sustain such performances, they will achieve things few Indian teams have managed in the past, but this is still a big question mark. Wicketkeeper-batsman Heinrich Klaasen has been drafted as the backup for Quinton de Kock.

Chahal trapped Morne Morkel (1) LBW as well, while Yadav got rid of Kagiso Rabada (1) with a wrong one, out LBW.

Earlier, South Africa were bowled out for 118 runs. The Fast Bowlers always made their dominance at this pitch than Spinners.

However, commentator and Indian great Sunil Gavaskar argued that simple commonsense should have been applied.

Other teams have started rebuilding with an eye on the 2019 World Cup.

When that time came, India needed only two runs to win the game, but the umpires insisted that match had to be interrupted for lunch. Young batsman Aiden Markram captained South Africa in his stead in Centurion.
