India complete crushing ODI win over S Africa

Kuldeep Yadav picked three wickets to guide India to a six-wicket win over South Africa in the opening ODI in Durban on Thursday

India rode on another stellar performance from Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav to beat South Africa in the second ODI. South Africa crumbling and how!

Chahal returned figures of 5/22 while Yadav notched up 3/20 to justify India skipper Virat Kohli's decision to field first on winning the toss. He had no other choice other than attacking.

JP Duminy and new cap Khaya Zondo both scored 25 and shared a partnership of 48 before the last six wickets tumbled for 19 runs.

With Chahal continuing to scythe through the Proteas' batting line-up, they ended up going from 107/6 to being bowled out for 118, which is the lowest ODI score in history at SuperSport Park in Centurion. India chased down the meagre 119-run target with 29.3 overs (177 balls) to spare as the visitors took 2-0 lead in the six-match series. Dhawan hit nine fours in his 51 from 56 balls and Kohli four fours and a six in his 46 from 50.

Hashim Amla and the out-of-form Quinton de Kock put on 39 for the first wicket before Amla was caught behind for 23 off an inside edge from Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

WICKET! South Africa are in tatters! "We want to win the series but we do see this as a great opportunity to get some game time on to our next best players", Benkenstein reasoned.

"The spinners were outstanding, it was a hard surface so they were getting pace and bounce off the wicket as well", Kohli said at the post-match presentation.

Imran Tahir was bowled by Bumrah and Morris holed out to deep cover to give Chahal his maiden five-for, the best figures by an Indian bowler against South Africa in South Africa, and the second-best by an Indian against South Africa ever. "There's no excuse, we just did not play good cricket and the players are obviously very upset and disappointed in themselves", Markram said after the loss. 2-0 is a wonderful position to be in. I wouldn't say we play spin incredibly well generally, but there was no massive danger out there today, the pitch was not too bad. "When I took the first wicket and he [Kuldeep] came and took two wickets, the pressure was on the batsmen".
