12:30 IST: Hello and welcome to the Live coverage from the second ODI between India and South Africa in Centurion.
The Proteas, on the other hand are yet to name the skipper of the side with Hashim Amla and Jean Paul Duminy emerging as the top contenders. The home side will need to chalk out a strategy to stop the strong Indian batting after using as many as seven bowlers in the opening game. All-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo added up to his handy 33-ball unbeaten 27, by picking the crucial wickets of Kohli and Rahane with his slower bouncers, but the damage was already done by then. The hosts will also bank on the opening duo of Amla and stumper Quinton de Kock to set the tone early on for the likes of Aiden Markram, Duminy, David Miller and Chris Morris to put up a commanding total.
