!

That's all we have from this match. We look forward to your company for the second ODI in Durban on Sunday. Until then, it's good bye and cheers!!!

Quinton de Kock is the unanimous choice for the Man of the Match award. He is extremely pleased with his performance and says that Man of the Match is always nice to get. Adds that it was a bit tough to bat earlier in the innings.

!

AB de Villiers says that it's important to be confident in sports. He praises Amla and de Kock for providing the kick start and adds that it was easy for rest of them to bat. He is very happy with the batting in the death overs and feels that with the kind of bowling they possess, they can restrict any side. On Steyn, de Villiers says that he's a bit of a freak with any ball and there is a reason why he is the number 1 Test bowler in the world.

!

MS Dhoni says that it was a bad performance by them. His hand is fine and he'll be ready for next game. Adds that he was disappointed with the new ball bowling more than the death bowling. He praises Shami but also adds that the other bowlers gave away too many runs.

!

India were completely outplayed today. The bowling didn't fare well on a wicket which had something in for the pacers and the batting faltered too when needed. Apart from the skipper, MS Dhoni, none of the batsmen looked at ease against the pace and bounce and it's going to be a tough time for them in the series.

!

A convincing win for South Africa to take a 1-0 lead in the 3-match ODI series. Their batsmen piled on a huge total on the board and the pace of their bowlers was too hot to handle for the famed Indian batting. They completely blew away the visitors and registered a comfortable win over the best ODI side at the moment.
