Match Ended   
296/4 (50.0/50)
265/8 (50.0/50)
South Africa beat India by 31 runs
Right then. That’s it from the coverage of this game. The hosts have taken a 1-nil lead in this three-match series. But let us not forget, India took the lead in the Test series but South Africa turned it around in the next two games. India would hope they can replicate the same in this series and would look to come back stronger in the second ODI. This game will be played on 21st with the first ball being bowled at 1400 IST (0830 GMT). But as you all know you can join us early for the build-up. Cheers!
Rassie van der Dussen wins the Man of the Match award for his incredible knock with his blade. He says, he knew he needed to go for the sweeps and reverse sweeps and put the spinners under pressure. Adds as soon as they got a partnership going on a good batting wicket, they put up a good score. Adds there was pressure when he walked out but he was confident and the team was confident and they knew 285 plus was going to be a good score and all in all, it was a good day for them. Ends by saying when Shikhar and Kohli were there, they were under pressure but as soon as they got those wickets, the game changed and they knew if they kept taking wickets, they will build pressure.
Temba Bavuma, the victorious skipper is in for a chat. He says it was a good win and he is happy. States he struggled throughout the innings to hit it in the middle and find the gaps but Rassie did really well and he provided the much-needed impetus and he just wanted to hang in there with him. Credits Jansen for the way he bowled and says he is growing as a cricketer. Mentions Markram is always an option for them with the ball and he always comes in handy. Further says Andile was really good, he would have loved to play a bigger part in the game but he understood the situation and he is a big player in the team and he rose to the occasion. Ends by saying the spinners were excellent, they tried to use Shamsi differently and he did really well and he is also pleased to have de Kock back and he is a big player for the team.
KL Rahul, the Indian skipper is in for a chat. He says it was a good game and they love playing in such games, there is a lot to learn. Admits they struggled to get wickets in the middle and they need to work on that. Further adds they were on par with the bat till the 25th over but then South Africa bowled really well. Mentions he did not bat for long so he has no idea about how much the pitch changed but Virat and Dhawan did tell him it was a good wicket to bat on, you just needed to hang in there. Also says when two people from the opposition bat deep, they are bond to post a good score, they needed someone to do that but that was not the case. Ends by saying they did feel in the break they gave away 30 runs extra but had they got a few more partnerships, they could have gotten over the line and they will learn from this.
Stay tuned for presentation...
Earlier in the day, after electing to bat, South Africa were in trouble as they were three down in for less than 100. Then came the 200-run stand between Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma with both scoring runs and that powered the hosts close to 300. India began well, for the first part of the second essay, it seemed India would take the lead in this series but in the end, it is the home side who head into the second ODI with the advantage.
For South Africa, they did not bowl that well in the first half of this innings! There were far too many boundary balls, they struggled to build pressure on the Indian batters and also bowled quite a few extras. Not their fault too, the ball seemed to be coming on very nicely. Once the ball got old and soft though, it started to grip and then the likes of Shamsi and Maharaj came into their own. Ngidi was also very handful with his cutters and Andile Phehlukwayo also did his job. A really good effort from them after being put under pressure.
A very convincing win in the end for South Africa! Never did we feel though it would be that convincing. The top three really played well to get India into a fine position. Especially Kohli and Dhawan. The two added just over 90 and scored half tons each. However, the two fell in quick succession and then it all went down the hill for India. The likes of Pant and the two Iyers failed to contribute a lot. It then became an uphill task and they fell short by some margin.

Andile Phehlukwayo To Rishabh Pant OUT!
OUT! STUMPED! That is magical work from de Kock! Wow! Probably one of the fastest stumpings we have seen. That is tremendous. This is down the leg side, de Kock is up to the stumps for Andile Phehlukwayo! Pant looks to flick but misses. He drags his back foot out as he tries to flick but misses. De Kock, collects it brilliantly and within no time, takes the bails off. He starts celebrating. It is referred and replays show that Pant is short. Body blow, Pant needed to stay there till the end. Now this target looks far away.
Is that a fair stumping? The umpires take it upstairs. The UltraEdge shows no bat is involved. The replays confirm Pant was outside the crease as the bails were coming off. The final decision is not out.

Lungi Ngidi To Venkatesh Iyer
Short and outside off, Iyer lets it go through to the keeper. No carry at all there. This pitch just seems like getting tougher. 116 needed in 96.
DRINKS! With this wicket of Shreyas Iyer, South Africa are well on top here. They would look to keep chipping away wickets and take the game away from the visitors. India on the other hand, need Pant to stick in the middle for long. Venkatesh Iyer joins him in the middle who is making his debut. He had a dream Indian Premier League debut in 2021 and would look to have a similar impact for his country now.

Lungi Ngidi To Shreyas Iyer OUT!
OUT! GLOVED AND TAKEN! Iyer walks back and South Africa now have control over this game. Shreyas was looking at so much ease but now falls! A short one down the leg side, Iyer looks to pull, once again this sticks in the surface. It goes off the glove as Iyer is through his shot. De Kock takes it. An appeal and the finger is raised. Now South Africa are into the all-rounders. India still 116 runs away.

OUT! Top edge and taken! There is the wicket South Africa needed, the big fish, Virat Kohli, once again fails to covert his start into a big one and have to say, the hosts on top now. Also, the wicket has started to play tricks quite a lot now. This is tossed up, slower and on middle, Kohli who is not a natural sweeper, goes for it, the ball though sticks in the surface, Kohli is through his shot, it goes off the toe-end and it is a simple catch to Bavuma at mid-wicket. Kohli looks down at the surface and righty so, that ball just did not arrive.

This is shorter in length and outside off, Dhawan shapes himself to cut it, this one turns back in sharply goes under the bat and hits the stumps. Is that the wicket which changes the game? The stand which was taking the game away has been broken. 159 more needed in 147. Dhawan walks back after a fine knock, a good return for him back in the side. He just did not seem like getting out but Maharaj has produced something special.

Aiden Markram To KL Rahul OUT!
OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! There is the big wicket of the Indian skipper and Markram strikes. This is flatter and on off, Rahul plays for the turn. He looks to defend but this goes on with the arm. It takes the outside edge and de Kock takes it. Huge wicket as Rahul is very dangerous once he gets his eye in. Also, like most of the times, it is not the ball that turns but the one that goes on with the arm is what gets you out.
