Fractured finger rules du Plessis out of ODI, T20I series

But after the fall of the two wickets, Kohli and Rahane have put up a partnership of 189 runs.

According to a Cricket South Africa (CSA) release, the captain for the remaining ODIs will be named on Saturday. Rahane has a good batting average on overseas cricket. Kohli (112) soon followed the lead leaving the reigns to former captain MS Dhoni who then finished the match in style easily. The two wristspinners gave only four boundaries while others conceded 23 of them. Wherein on one hand, Faf du Plessis, the captain of the home team took the lead by scoring the century and making a decent run score for the Indian side to chase of 269 runs. However, the first success came our way when Chahal dismissed de Kock followed by Aiden Markram. Kuldeep then got into the act by outfoxing JP Duminy with a googly to breach his defence and in his following over, David Miller chipped one tamely to short cover, where Virat Kohli took a smart diving catch. In Southampton in 2014, with India leading the series, Rohit holed out off Moeen Ali just before a break, and India went down after that, both in the Test and the series. Rahane too played a very handy inning of 79 runs while Kohli looked unstoppable as he completed his 33rd ODI hundred, 2nd most in the ODI history.

A confident India will face South Africa in their first-ever bilateral ODI series on South African soil. Be it scoring rapidly in the first innings or chasing steadily in the second innings, once Kohli crosses the 50-run mark, a score of 100 or more is nearly confirmed.

South African captain Faf du Plessis said he had chose to bat in the first of six matches because the pitch tended to help the seamers in the first ten overs in the second innings under lights. "They were very fearless, throwing it up and that's why they got wickets".

Du Plessis began in fine fashion as he struck three successive fours off Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. No long ago, Ajinkya Rahane appeared an outcast in the Indian team. India will want to improve its previous record in the one-day series against South Africa.

In spite of the fact that the Indian chief must assume some fault in running out Shikhar Dhawan (35) to leave India at 67/2, he at that point found a capable accomplice in Ajinkya Rahane.
