South Africa will take on India in the second ODI of India’s tour of South Africa on 21st January 2022 at the Boland Park, Paarl.
South Africa continued their momentum from the Tests to ODIs by defeating the mighty Indians by 31 runs in the first ODI. After being brought to 68-3, the Proteas bounced back in style courtesy of centuries from Rassie van der Dussen and captain Temba Bavuma. They stitched a record 204 run fourth-wicket partnership to post a total of 296 runs. It was then followed by a collective bowling performance to seal a victory and grab a 1-0 lead in the series.
On the other hand, KL Rahul didn’t have a great outing in his maiden ODI as a captain. Chasing a target of 297 on a difficult wicket, India lost Rahul early but were put ahead in the game by Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli who struck half-centuries to stitch a 92-run partnership. However, the middle order failed to keep the momentum going. Shardul Thakur scored a fine fifty but couldn’t manage to guide India towards victory.
