TL;DR: South Africa succumb to wrist-spin again

Indian spinners conceded 119 runs in 11.3 overs

There doesn't seem to be a way out at all.

Talking about the Test series gone by, the bowling coach expressed extreme satisfaction with the way Indian bowlers took 60 out of 60 wickets.

Outstanding. I don't have words to explain this. Both have been working hard on their game. They are very courageous tossing the ball and asking the batsman to come out and play a risky shot.

While many believe that the future of India's off-spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in worldwide limited overs cricket is bleak, bowling coach Bharat Arun gave hopes to the "spin twins" stating that they are "not out of the race" despite wrist spinners like Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav calling the shots at the moment.

"We've got to rework our strategy against them and come up with different ways of countering them". But it was also clear that both spinners preferred to contain rather than attack the opposition batsmen.

The UP pacer bowled brilliantly in the tests in South Africa.

No ODI team average less against wrist-spin than South Africa since the Champions Trophy. "They are told to go for wickets at all times".

The former India all-rounder added, "We wanted to look at all the existing talent that we had".

One dead, 62 wounded in Libya's Benghazi mosque attack
One bomb was hidden in a coffin in the courtyard of the mosque and another in a shoe cabinet at the entrance, the source added. Two weeks ago, around 35 people were killed by a twin bombing at a mosque in the same city.

Du Plessis did a mighty good job in the first ODI in Durban but the others - except Chris Morris to an extent - failed to rally around their skipper. "It comes down to execution on the day", he said, while insisting that facing slow wrist spinners was not a major problem for the Proteas. From then on, South Africa only headed downwards, losing their last 5 wickets for 29 runs before being wrapped up for 179 in 40 overs.

"They are extremely positive". Maybe situations have caused a bit of tentativeness.

"When you are not picking their wrong 'uns, you are not necessarily comfortable".

"We don't need to hit more balls, we don't need to change anything". That they were not picking their wrong'uns, that the India spinners bowled the optimum pace, and that their lengths kept denying them the single down the ground, that batsmen are forced to take risks against them, and then they lose wickets. But this is a hollow plan given the plentiful variations that Chahal and Kuldeep have in their armoury.

Kohli added that Chahal and Kuldeep's bravery to keep tossing deliveries up in order to try and get batsmen out is another reason for their success.

They may find it more challenging to control the ball than the traditional finger spinners do, but they can do much more with it - such as imparting more spin on it and giving it more air.

"And we said in overseas conditions wrist spinners would do better than what a finger spinner would". The hosts now must win all three remaining games to draw the series level. "They (Chahal and Yadav) haven't made it easy for us to get the ones even", Duminy said after South Africa's defeat in the third ODI in Cape Town on Wednesday. South Africa might want to alter their plans a touch against the duo in the next three games. "We haven't been playing them well; we've been a bit tentative towards them".

"Every over they might pick up two wickets, that's the kind of belief they have in their abilities and the team has a belief in them", he added. Wild shots against the duo contributed to three wickets at Newlands and four in Centurion (where Markram's and Quinton de Kock's pulls off long hops and Zondo's ill-timed slog sweep stood out).
