India vs South Africa 2nd ODI Highlights

South Africa’s skipper Aiden Markram, after winning the toss, chose to bowl first this time, and India started with the typical left and right-hand combination of Sai Sudarshan and Ruturaj Gaikwad, who scored a boundary in the very first ball of the match, but the South African pacer did a comeback by dismissing the right-handed Ruturaj in the next ball. India was one down for four runs when Tilak Varma came to the crease, and both batters kept running the scoreboard, but Nandre Burger didn’t let Tilak carry on his innings for too long and bowled a perfect bouncer to get his second wicket as Tilak Varma got caught at the fine leg.

Indian skipper KL Rahul came to the crease to assist Sudarshan. Both batters scored their fifties and, for a brief period, provided strength to the Indian side, but after Sai Sudarshan’s dismissal, no batter could stand for long on the crease, and wickets kept falling, due to which India could only reach the score of 211 runs and was bowled out for 211 runs.

South Africa, chasing the target of 212 runs, started well with their opening batters, Tony de Zorzi and Reeza Hendricks. Both batters built a partnership of 130 runs for the first wicket. The job was half done by the opening pair. Tony de Zorzi took the inning forward and scored his maiden ODI ton. The Indian bowlers failed to stop Tony de Zorzi, who finished the match with a six. South Africa reached the target of 212 runs with 45 balls to spare to level the three-match ODI series 1-1.
