Centurion ODI: India thrash Proteas by 9 wickets with Chahal' five-fer
Feb 06, 2018, 14:12
South Africa's worrisome injury-list has been lengthened after wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock was ruled out for up to four weeks with a wrist injury.
India has crushed South Africa by nine wickets in the second ODI, but victory came in odd circumstances with lunch taken when just two runs were required for victory.
Benkenstein said that absence of experienced stalwarts like AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis is a massive miss for them.
The leg-spinning duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav has put the hosts under real pressure during the first two matches, claiming 13 wickets in the process.
They were the No.1 ODI team in the world. However, India were simply too good for them on Thursday night with Kohli recording his 18th century in successful chases.
The 27-year-old scalped his maiden ODI five-wicket haul, dismissing the likes of Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, and Khaya Zondo. This series could be India's to lose after their performance in the Centurion ODI.
South Africa was spun out for their lowest total at home, succumbing to wrist spin on a slow surface that must have made the Indian attack feel as much at home in Centurion as it would have in Chennai.
Going into the second match, India will be eager to take advantage of the loss of Du Plessis and go 2-0 up in the rubber, with all their departments ticking the right notes in Durban.
India's top-order has done reasonably well in the opening ODI barring the odd mix-up between Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli, which led to an unfortunate run-out of the southpaw. India won in just 20.3 overs, clinching the game with 177 balls to spare. West Indian great Michael Holding termed the decision as "ridiculous", while former India opener Virender Sehwag tweeted that umpires had treated Indian batsmen "like PSU bank treats customers". He also believed that the Proteas' team management has got its strategy wrong, both in terms of team selection as well as picking Aiden Markram as captain.
That their half-trackers too are quite economical as compared to other spinners (with this length, the two concede 5.4 runs per over and take wickets at an average of 28.5, as compared to the corresponding overall statistics of 6.4 and 55) too is indicative of the threat they now pose with the ball.
"The two have been brilliant for South Africa, yes, but injuries are a part and parcel of the game", observed Joshi.
