    South Africa (288/3) defeat India (287/6) by 7 wickets to win 2nd ODI, seal series 2-0

    With the series on the line, India will be looking to bounce back in the second ODI of the three-match series against South Africa in Paarl.

    Overview
    South Africa vs India, second ODI
    Boland Park, Paarl
    January 21, 10:30 am local

    India will have a lot to ponder after succumbing to a 31-run defeat against the Proteas in the first ODI. South Africa outclassed the visitors in all three departments of the game, but India are still a very strong side and will be looking to make a comeback in this do-or-die clash. There may be some changes in the Indian line-up, though. Most of the bowlers, apart from Jasprit Bumrah, went for runs on a track which had a lot of help for them. India also went with a very thin lower middle-order in the last match with an inexperienced Venkatesh Iyer batting at No. 6 and Ravichandran Ashwin at No.7. So, they might want to strengthen the batting line-up with a specialist batter in Suryakumar Yadav.

    South Africa, on the other hand, came up with a thoroughly professional performance in the last match as they dominated the game in all three departments. They carried their form and confidence from the Test series into this ODI leg and will be looking to carry that momentum further forward to seal this series with another win. If they manage to do so, it will be quite an achievement for a side that is still in the rebuilding phase.

    Remember the last time

    Batting first, South Africa posted a total of 296/4, which was well above par on that track, riding on twin centuries from skipper Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen. Bumrah was at his best again as he registered bowling figures of 2/48, but the other Indian bowlers had no answer to Bavuma and van der Dussen's assault.

    India started their chase well, with Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli scoring 79 and 51 respectively. But things fell apart when the middle-order failed to deliver. Shardul Thakur tried his best to resurrect the chase with a 43-ball fifty from No.8, but it came too late as the visitors still fell 31 runs short of South Africa's total in the end. It was a collective bowling effort from the South African bowlers as Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi and Andile Phehlukwayo claimed two wickets each while Aiden Markram and Keshav Maharaj chipped in with a wicket each as well.

    What they said

    Temba Bavuma (South Africa Captain): "We played close to the perfect game. Throughout my innings, I struggled to get the ball out of the middle and hit the ball in the gaps. Rassie though seemed to be batting on a different wicket. I think that partnership was quite key for us."

    KL Rahul (India Captain): "There's so much to learn. We started really well and couldn't get wickets in the middle. I didn't bat after the 20th over so I don't know if the pitch changed, but Virat and Shikhar said it was a good wicket to bat on once you were set. Unfortunately, we couldn't get those partnerships in the middle."

    It wasn't that strong a start. 10 runs given away with the 5 wide's and the drop catch off KL Rahul.

    Maharaj to Kohli, out Caught by Bavuma!! Such a soft dismissal and Kohli is gone for a duck. One hand comes off the bat handle as Kohli drives and he finds cover. Dolly to Kohli and Maharaj is exultant. Tossed up on middle, Kohli wanted to go over Bavuma but maybe the ball stopped on him and he couldn't keep it down. After a good start, South Africa peg India back with two quick wickets. Kohli c Bavuma b Maharaj 0(5)

    Fakhar's 193 came against an attack of Rabada, Nortje, Ngidi and Shamsi.

    They should have sent in Shreyas Iyer in place of Pant, who could have been brought in for the slog hitting required post 35 overs. Should a wicket fall now, and it will be the slow Shreyas followed by the untested Venkatesh Iyer playing in the slog overs.

    KL's captaincy needs some fine tuning.

    No wonder we are so poor ion LoIs due to pretenders like Rahul, Dhawan and Kohli. They'll make middling scores but not before consuming a lot of deliveries.

    He still has good stats. But he should soon learn new tricks to stay at top... Another thing is performance of other players in the team does affect any player, it is a team game for a reason!

    SA team looks pretty good when KG and Noritje come back. Can be dangerous. Might go back to the 90s early 2000s days.

    No demons in the pitch. Watch chahal go the distance if SA dont lose quick wickets

    Pant has no business running his mouth in LOIs. The game is not meant for it where things happen quickly.

    Yeah...a great start for SA so far, runs coming easily without much effort.

    India have been pathetic...Pant missing an easy stumping and the whole team looks so disinterested with no energy....even Kohli looks lost

    one thing about kohli he used to create a siege mentality amongst the team, us vs the rest of the world, i think that motivated the players a lot on the field, they look very tame at the moment since kohli relinquished the captaincy.

    It they were so interested in playing Bhuvaneshwar, they could have included him in Test Matches (overseas like South Africa), he could have been handy in picking wickets like Thakur and improved the batting depth. Could have easily played in place of Umesh Yadav. Here somebody like Prasidh Krishna should have been playing...

    I think whole Indian Management is confused after Shastri & Kohli stepped down! Ashwin is playing in LOIs... Looks like he has got some free license now and can play all matches upto his wish! Some kind of revenge!

    Bhuvi's struggling to pitch it up. Bowling short to SA batsmen on an easy paced pitch is asking for 4's nd 6's. Has he been injured or what? Surely India have got better bowlers than current Bhuvi

    He clearly doesn't have fitness for 20 over cricket and you want him to play in Tests?

    He should have been dropped from all formats. India have got Bumrah, Siraj, Shami, Krishna and Deepak Chahar to look to. D Chahar is also a better batsman.

    Is this what we got after Kohli/Shastri regime? A huge dip in quality/passion (even eager/intent to play!) All we asked was improvement/perfection at that time! Last time we went there we dominated them in LOIs (5-1 in ODIs and 2-1 in T20s)

    If India lose today, the preassure will be on Dravid right away.

    And it’s always tough after captaincy change.

    Said that if they were to play him... Anyways they should have understood that he belongs to the famous "kumar" category who have their moments & then fade away quickly (Praveen Kumar, Vinay Kumar, etc). Not sure why they persisted with him for so long!

    He is one confused human being out there! Dropped from Tests, Dropped from LOIs before, Asked to Wicket keep in LOIs, released from wicket-keeping, asked to bat in middle order in LOIs, back to opening in all formats, now asked to captain... I don't when he is going get a settled role in the team & becomes consistent...
