  • South Africa innings The Proteas were off to an excellent start courtesy of Janneman Malan (91) and Quinton de Kock's (78) 132-run opening partnership. Their run spree was furthered when skipper Temba Bavuma (35) added 80-runs with Malan during their chase. Handy knocks came in from Aiden Markram (37*) and Rassie van der Dussen (37*) as they went their merry way to win the ODI series 2-0 against India. 
    Barring Jasprit Bumrah who returned with the prized scalp of Malan and maintained an economy of 3.7, the game has brought India's bowling unit under the scanner. The brunt has fallen more heavily on India's bowling attack as the Proteas registered the highest ever chase at Boland Park as they won this match.

  • SA 245/3 after 40 overs Aiden Markram and Rassie van der Dussen steadily bringing South Africa close to the win after two quick wickets of Malan and Bavuma. India would be eyeing quick wickets to apply the choke, win the game and level the series. 

     
  • WICKET! Back to back wickets for Team India as Chahal removes SA captain Bavuma for 35. Beautiful catch by Chahal on his own follow-through. It is never easy to take these kinds of catches. Two new batsmen on the crease for hosts. Rassie van der Dussen joines Aiden Markram in the middle. ​
     
  • WICKET! Jasprit Bumrah picks his first wicket of the match by removing Janneman Malan. The right-hand batsman fell nine runs short of his well deserved hundred. It was an off-cutter by Bumrah just around the good length area and Malan gets clean bowled. The game is all but over for Team India as the host need 75 runs to win with eight wickets in hand. 
     
  • SA 180/1 after 30 overs Runs keep flowing for South Africa and they are nearly guiding the ball through the gaps as they chase a supposeldy good target put by the Indian side. After de Kock's wicket, skipper Bavuma has supported the opening batsman Malan. The duo is about to reach the 50-run partnership between them. India continue to search for the breakthrough.  

     
  • SA 153/1 after 25 overs 150 runs come up for the Proteas but India's search for quick wickets continue even after de Kock's wicket. Thakur threw a full-toss that swung late into de Kock and struck him onto the pads. Meanwhile, Janneman Malan also smashes his fifty during SA run-chase.

However, South African batters- Quinton de Kock and Janeman Malan look confident on the pitch and are going their merry to score the runs. 
 

  • India innings After choosing to bat first, India were off to a fluent as KL Rahul (55) and Shikhar Dhawan (29) ensured visitors a 63-run opening stand before Dhawan was caught while playing a lofted shot off Aiden Markram's bowling. His dismissal was followed by Virat Kohli's wicket at rare duck leaving India reeling at 64/2 in 13 overs.
    Just when India seemed in shallow water, Rahul and Rishabh Pant's (85) 115-run stand gave the visiting side a breather during the need of the hour. The innings then saw contributions coming in from lower order as Shardul Thakur (40*) and Ravi Ashwin (25*) wove 48-run partnership between them to help India put a competitive total 287 runs on the board for the Proteas to chase at Boland Park, Paarl.

  • IND 45/0 after 7 overs India are off to a fine start and the openers- Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul look confident as they face South Africa's bowling attack. While Ngidi is trying to stem the flow of the runs, Magala has been a little expensive till now. 
    Meanwhile, KL Rahul was dropped by J Malan in the fourth over off Ngidi's bowling. Will Rahul's catch cost the Proteas? 

     
  • IND 16/0 after 2 overs After a tidy over from Ngidi who conceded just three runs, Sisanda Magala went a little expensive. Magala who is playing his second ODI for South Africa struggled to get his rhythm as Dhawan smashed him for some easy runs.
