Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli give a fist bump to boost morale as they chase the target during India vs South Africa 1st ODI at Boland Park, Paarl. 

India vs South Africa 1st ODI Highlights: South Africa beat India by 31 runs 

  • IND 265/8 after 50 overs - South Africa thrash India by 31 runs in 1st ODI

Clinical performance by South Africa's bowling unit helped the host beat India by 31 runs in the first ODI here at the Boland Park, Paarl on Wednesday. Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi and Andile Phehlukwayo picked two wickets each while Aiden Markram and Keshav Maharaj also chipped in with one wicket each.

  • IND 224/8 after 45 overs Shardul Thakur and Jasprit Bumrah are trying their level best to sitch a partnership and get India close to the target. India need 73 runs in five overs. Tabraiz Shamsi and Marco Jansen are bowling their last spell. 


  • WICKET! Shamsi removes Bhuwaneshwar for four. Bavuma takes a simple catch, India lose 8th wicket. India on the verge of losing first ODI. 


  • IND 203/7 after 40 overs India reach 200-run mark but there is a lot of task at hand for Shardul Thakur and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. India lost wickets at quick succession in the last few overs. The latest scalp was of Ravi Ashwin off Phehlukwayo's bowling. The in-nipping delivery kept low and Ashwin, who tried to slash it away through the off-side, finds the ball crashing into the stumps. 


  • WICKET! Venkatesh Iyer falls cheaply to Ngidi, Departs with 2 runs on his debut.

  • IND 185/5 after 35 overs TWO WICKETS in three balls! India suffered a jolt as South African medium pacers- Ngidi and Phehlukwayo removed Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant respectively. Iyer played a slower bouncer, got tickle of the glove and was safely caught by de Kock behind the wicket. For Pant's dismissal, it was de Kock's quick work to dislodge the stumps when Phehlukwayo bowled a length ball down leg when the Indian batters missed the flick. 
    Can Venkatesh Iyer and Ravi Ashwin get India through?
  • IND 156/3 after 30 overs TWO WICKETS in five overs! India suffered major blow in last five overs as their set batsmen- Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli departed to the pavilion. Kohli was removed in a soft dismissal soon after his fifty. A slightly flighted ball, Kohli plays a sweep shot on a low bounce ball that came slowly onto the bat just to give an easy catch to SA skipper Temba Bavuma at mid-wicket.
  • IND 138/2 after 25.3 overs WICKET, bowled! Maharaj gets the prized wicket of Shikhar Dhawan at 79. A good length from outside off takes a sharp turn to strike the stumps as Dhawan attempts to cut it. Maharaj gets the breakthrough and breaks the 92-run stand between Dhawan and Kohli. 
  • IND 104/1 after 20 overs India reach 100-run mark and Dhawan, Kohli get a fifty-run stand between the two. The experienced players have been good so far and are driving India. The senior players have taken the charge and have seemingly lead well till now. The two will be aiming to consolidate in the 10-15 overs ahead. 
  • IND 80/1 after 15 overs Fifty up for Indian opener- Shikhar Dhawan who smashed eight fours and took 51 balls to reach his half-century. Dhawan looks determined to keep his ODI career alive. South Africa desperately looking to dismiss Dhawan. Alongside Kohli, the left-handed batter looks to anchor India's innings. The Proteas are searching for another wicket! 


  • IND 55/1 after 10 overs South Africa introduced spin comparatively in their attack and the trick pays off as Markram managed the crucial wicket of KL Rahul. With Dhawan and Kohli on the crease, the two players will try taking India forward. 

  • IND 46/1 after 8.3 overs WICKET! Markram defines Rahul's way to the pavilion. A slightly flighted delivery from Markram outside the off, Rahul draws forward to play the shot on a good length and finds an edge. The ball is safely pocketed by de Kock  behind the stumps. 

  • IND 25/0 after 5 overs India's seasoned openers- Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul are getting going patiently as slowly keeping the scoreboard ticking. The duo knows that prolonged stay at the pitch is the only drill to the heavy target that the Proteas have posted. The Indian batters are driving India. Dhawan must put a show with the bat as the series could decide his spot in the Indian team going forward. 

  • South Africa innings The pitch might have been slugglish but the Proteas pace wasn't especially when Temba Bavuma (110) and Rassie van der Dussen (129*) took the charge of South African innings. After suffering early hiccups when Jasprit Bumrah removed Janneman Malan (6) and Ravi Ashwin sent Quinton de Kock (27) to the pavilion, Bavuma-R vd Dussen 204 runs stand changed the contrast of the game. The duo's stand is the second highest partnership during SA vs INDIA in ODIs. 
    From Indian bowling contingent, Bumrah exhibited a fine show as he scalped two wickets at an economy of 4.80. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur went wicketless and leaked quite some runs. 

  • WICKET! Temba Bavuma make his way off at 110! Bumrah gets the prized wicket as skipper KL Rahul pouches the catch as long-on.

  • SA 245/3 after 45 overs Century for skipper Temba Bavuma! And it has come up just when his team needed it from him. A top knock from SA skipper who has registered his second hundred in the 50-over format. Besides, he has jammed well with Dussen as their ongoing stand is South Africa's highest 4th wicket partnerships during SA vs IND in ODIs. Can the Proteas get across 300-run total on the board?

  • SA 210/3 after 40 overs Dussen, Bavuma's stand has put South Africa in a commanding position and has made Indian bowlers look weaker. India are trying different bowling combinations but to no avail. The visitors seem to have missing intent and clearly India look short of plan to break this partnership. Indeed, something unusual needs to happen in India's favour to get the breakthrough! 

  • SA 181/3 after 35 overs Fifty up for Rassie van der Dussen and this also brings 100 run partnership between Dussen and SA skipper Temba Bavuma. This is their second 100-run partnership, the last one was a 101-run stand against Pakistan in 2021 in Johannesburg. 
    The duo is going their merry way and are gathering runs at an impressive rate. This stand has given hosts some solid impetus and could turn out be a match-winning partnership. India's search for a wicket and the breakthrough continues. 

  • SA 148/3 after 30 overs Half-century comes up for South African captain Temba Bavuma and he is looking strong alongside Rassie van der Dussen. The duo has stood like a solid rock and are rapidly building upon their partnership and getting the scorebard ticking for South Africa. The duo is getting the momentum going for the Proteas and is trying to keep their partnership intact as they know it won't be easy for the next batter to come in and start on on such slow wicket. 
    India desperately looking to break this partnership. 

  • SA 118/3 after 25 overs South Africa reach 100-run mark and the last five overs have seen quick run accumulation from the South African batters- Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen. With their 50-run partnership up from 46 balls, the duo is building frustration for the Indians who are badly looking for a breakthrough. Shardul seems a little off-colour with the ball today as he has leaked quite some runs and gave two overstepping no-balls.
    India's search for wicket continues!

  • SA 80/3 after 20 overs Not the kind of overs that the Proteas were looking. 22 runs from the last five overs at the cost of two crucial wickets- de Kock and Markram. The responsibility falls heavily on Bavuma's and van der Dussen's shoulders to drive South Africa after quick wickets.

  • SA 68/3 after 17.4 overs WICKET! Ashwin gets his second scalp. Markram sets his way to the pavilion in a run-out. Markram took too big a risk there as he came down the pitch, drove the shot straight to mid-off and ran for a non-existent single that cost him his wicket. Venkatesh Iyer was spot-on in his appraoch as his throw hit the stumps and removes the batter who was short of his crease. SA batter is clearly dissapointed with his dismissal as he returns with his head down. 

  • SA 58/1 after 15.1 overs WICKET! Ashwin gets his first wicket and sends de Kock back to the hut. SA batter is out Bowled! Ashwin threw an under-cutter good lenhth delivery when he bowled from round the wicket. The ball crashes into the stumps just when de Kock attempted to cut. 

  • SA 58/1 after 15 overs India have brought in change of bowling by bringing spin into the attack. Ravi Ashwin and Yuzi Chahal have been intoduced comparatively early in the deck. The dryness in the surface prompted such a decision. 
    Meanwhile, de Kock has been dropped by Shreyas Iyer at backward point when the former attempted to drive an overpitched ball. Can de Kock's dropped cath cost India?

  • SA 39/1 after 10 overs Powerplay is over and South Afric are reeling at 39 runs. 10 overs and just three fours- indeed a slow start and sluggish nature of the pitch is the blaming factor. With the lack of pace, the ball is not coming easily onto the bat, calling batsman to improvise too much on their end. The difficulty to score runs would just increase as the bowl gets more softer with time. SA batters finding it tough to get the momentum going. 
  • SA 19/1 after 4.2 overs WICKET! Bumrah gets the first blood and sends Janneman Malan to the pavilion. A full length delivery curving away (outside swing) from the right handed gets an edge of Malan's willow. Malan was probably expecting an in-swinger and would be cursing him for the loose shot. 
  • SA 14/0 after 3 overs South African openers- Quinton de Kock, Malan have got South Africa off to a steady start. The duo is spending time on the pitch, look calm and composed and are confidently facing the Indian attack. The bowl is bouncing a little low and with the ball to get little softer with the passage of time, the bounce is tend to get further low. Meanwhile, Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar are looking for a brekthrough!!
