FIVE RUNS! FIFTY! OH DEAR 1The frustration builds up for India and this has a pretty bad look to it. Rassie bunts the ball to point for a single. The fielder has a shy at stumps but misses the stumps. The fielder converge in the deep in the leg side but the ball darts away to the fence.

DIRECT HIT! INDIA APPEAL AND UMPIRE SENDS IT UPSTAIRS!

Quinton de Kock survives a run-out chance

SA are 31/1 after 8 overs
Jan 19, 2022 02:38 PM IST
The fact that the ball isn’t doing much after pitching and a thick edge, inside the first 10 overs, didn’t carry to the keeper shows the nature of the track. Now that India have had an early breakthrough, they would be keen to get rid of this pair. Quinton de Kock looks settled and Bavuma, who averages nearly 50 in his nascent ODI career, comes into the series on the back of a decent run in the Test

IND vs SA: KL Rahul at the toss
“Would’ve wanted to bat first. We’re always ready to do both things. Looks a little bit dry. Have some quality spinners in our attack. With Bumrah and Bhuvi starting, hopefully they’ll get a couple early with the swing. Venkatesh Iyer debuting, Shreyas Iyer to bat at four. Last couple of days and right after Tests there was a lot going on. Emotional for the team. Lot of us have debuted under Virat. Obviously he’s still with us and integral part of the team. Just want to try out few things in terms of tactics and strategies. Personnel will not change much. Want to give them a good run. Expermentation doesn’t mean we’ll go in and start hitting from ball one.”
Jan 19, 2022 01:34 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live: Bavuma at the toss
“Wicket looks a bit dry. Would like to make use of the best of the batting conditions. Hopefully it slows up and the slower bowlers can get in the game. Hard to get away from the high of the Tests. But will have to focus on today, different format, have to ensure our basics are in touch. Opportunity for us as a one-day team to get our game in order. Have got a standard team. Marco comes in, obviously we don’t have KG available. Two spinners.

“Under Virat, team India have done some phenomenal things. We’ve won series outside India, something that hasn’t been done before. We’ve gone to every country and won a series. He has done a lot of things right and set a standard for all of us and team India. As a team, and for me, it’s all about building on that. We obviously know what it takes to be a champion team. We’ve got to keep improving and stay as disciplined and as determined as that, and go out and enjoy our cricket. Virat had this amazing ability to get the best out of everybody. He pushed everybody and made us believe that we could do special things. That’s something that I’ve learned from him and hopefully I can do that with the team as well.” – KL Rahul
