Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s HIGHLIGHTS of the second ODI between India and South Africa from the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi on Sunday.
India beat South Africa by seven wickets
IND 282/3 in 45.5 overs: Shreyas with the winning runs as he steers a Nortje delivery to the third man fence with an open face of the bat. Samson had collected four with a similar shot off the first delivery of the over. India storms to a seven-wicket win with 25 balls to spare and levels the series 1-1. Shreyas Iyer (113*, 111b, 15x4) and Ishan Kishan’s (93, 84b, 4x4, 7x6) knocks made the difference after India lost both openers with 48 runs on the board. Both teams will be eager to get their combinations and strategies right in the series decider in Delhi on Tuesday.
IND 263/3 in 43 overs: Hundred for Shreyas Iyer! He gets to the mark with a four off a free-hit as Rabada overstepped on the previous delivery. Iyer lofts it over extra-cover to bring up his second ODI hundred in 103 balls. Samson hammers Rabada for a six over long-on in the same over to leave India needing just 16 runs in seven overs.
IND 239/3 in 42 overs: Shreyas moves to 98 after cutting one very late to the third man boundary. It was on the stumps from Maharaj by Shreyas is so confident against spin that he didn’t think twice before playing that one while batting on 93. Samson is struggling a bit, batting on 13 off 22. India needs 30 runs to win in eight overs.
IND 231/3 in 39 overs: Shreyas is struggling with cramps in humid conditions. The physio is out and so are the drinks for the second time in two overs. Meanwhile, Samson is settling in slowly and has scored six runs off 11 balls. The luxury of not having to go big from ball one is largely owed to Kishan’s fiery knock of 93, which has seemingly put this contest beyond South Africa. There is a LBW appeal against Shreyas off Fortuin, it is turned down but Maharaj goes upstairs for the review. It missing leg-stump and Shreyas survives. South Africa one review down. Shreyas responds with a four off the next ball, cutting hard and late behind point. Asking rate now a mere 4.36 runs an over.
IND 211/3 in 36 overs: WICKET - Ishan Kishan is absolutely gutted as he pulls a half-tracker by Fortuin to deep midwicket and falls seven short of a well-deserved maiden ODI hundred. He goes for 93 off 84 balls and has ensured that from here it is India’s match to lose. Sanju Samson is the new man in. Shreyas and Samson will need to take India hope from here as this is the last recognised batting pair. Washington Sundar is up next, followed by Shahbaz Ahmed and Shardul Thakur.
IND 199/2 in 33 overs: Ishan Kishan gets a reprieve on 86 as Rabada drops a return catch. But that is after the left-hander gives Nortje a pasting in the 32nd over and goes 4, 6, 6. Iyer cuts Rabada for a four in the 31st over and has, surprisingly, looked comfortable against the short ball today. Ishan Kishan has gone past his previous ODI best of 59 by a distance and looks set for a scintillating hundred tonight.
IND 177/2 in 30 overs: Pace is back with Parnell and Rabada operating from both ends. Iyer pulls Rabada to the square-leg boundary off a no-ball. In the next over, he collects back-to-back fours off Parnell, who bowls it too full. The asking rate continues to dip and stands at a very gettable 5.10 now.
IND 154/2 in 27 overs: Ishan Kishan gets to a 60-ball fifty and Shreyas Iyer reaches his half-century off the next ball with a four past point off Markram. Five fifties for Shreyas in his last six ODI innings and this one has come off 48 balls. The duo also brings up the 100-run partnership in the 27th over. Ishan ends the over, bowled by Fortuin, with a six down the ground.
IND 134/2 in 24 overs: With spinners operating from both ends - Markram and Fortuin - South Africa has played into Shreyas Iyer’s hands. The right-hander is one of the best players of spin and has shown his class by smashing them for three fours and moves to 42 off 43. Kishan is on 47 off 55 and the required run rate keeps getting more comfortable for India - 5.61 almost at the halfway stage.
IND 111/2 in 21 overs: Ishan Kishan has found a new gear, hammering Maharaj for three sixes in the space of two overs. Maharaj offers half-trackers and the left-hander doesn’t miss out. Hundred comes up for India in 20.3 overs. Nortje has bowled a probing over, troubling Ishan with bouncers. The required run rate drops to below six runs an over.
IND 85/2 after 18 overs: Nortje and Rabada have dried up the boundaries and India have to be careful as they can’t afford to lose a wicket with the partnership steadily growing. Nortje has consistently clocked around 140 plus, testing both the batsmen and the fielders are supporting the bowlers with some excellent dives, even on the practice pitches. Iyer and Ishan are well set in the middle and will look to attack. Interesting passage of play with India still requiring 194 runs.
IND 75/2 after 15 overs: The partnership is steadily growing with Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada bowling in tandem. While Iyer has hogged the limelight with his drives, Ishan has held fort and both batsmen are not getting carried away with the attacking template. The running has been excellent and they have dealt with the pace and bounce with poise. Nortje, meanwhile is steaming in, clicking around 145 kph.
IND 65/2 after 12 overs: The fall of Shubman Gill hasn’t stalled the Indian run chase and the attacking mindset continues with Shubman Gill taking the attack to the opposition. The timing has been impeccable from Iyer and the two boundaries off Nortje - one to the backward point boundary and the other to deep extra cover have got the crowd on their feet. It was simply glorious and the way the right-hander caressed the ball was a touch of class. India is up and running with the current and required rate running parallel at 5.55 rpo.
IND 49/2 after 9 overs:WICKET - Kagiso Rabada has silenced the crowd with an excellent caught and bowled to dismiss the in-form Shubman Gill. The batsman was looking in good touch, exhibiting his batting prowess but falls for a 26-ball 28. There was nothing wrong with the shot as Gill played it on the up but Rabada bent low and took a blinder with both his hands underneath the ball. Shreyas Iyer in the middle with Ishan Kishan holding fort.
IND 28/1 after 6 overs: WICKET -Wayne Parnell strikes and he dismisses Shikhar Dhawan for the second time in two matches. It was unnecessary from Dhawan as the India captain charged down the track and Parnell was intelligent to drag his length back and the ball sneaked past Dhawan’s wild swing and clattered the stumps. Ishan Kishan is out in the middle.
IND 26/0 after 5 overs: Dhawan breaks away from the schakles as he deposits Fortuin for a maximum by skipping down the track and flicking the left-arm spinner over the deep. It’s been an approach mixed with caution and aggression. Both Dhawan and Gill are looking good in the middle, batting with confidence with good running between the wickets.
IND 8/0 after 2 overs: Bjorn Fortuin begins with a maiden over and the left-arm spinner tied down Shikhar Dhawan, not allowing the skipper to get off the mark. Wayne Parnell steamed in from the media end and Shubman Gill was off the mark with an exquisite flick through the mid-wicket as the ball raced away to the boundary.
Right then, we are back for the chase and out walk Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill. They struggled in Lucknow under testing conditions but that’s past and the openers will eye to give India a good start to stay alive in the series. For South Africa it will be Bjorn Fortuin with the new ball.
We are moments away from the start of India’s chase and this will be a cracker of a contest. On a wicket, where stroke-making isn’t easy, India’s new gen will be tested with captain Shikhar Dhawan bringing in the experience. It’s not a wicket where the new batsman will find it easy to score and the well-set one has to carry on. Important, India gets off to a bright start and the openers lay the foundation for the chase.
SA 278/7 after 50 overs: In the five overs, South Africa could muster only 26 runs and lost two wickets. That speaks of the clinical show with the ball from the Indian bowlers with Mohammed Siraj leading the attack with three wickets. David Miller was contained for an unbeaten 35 off 34 balls and India will be mighty pleased with the effort from their bowlers. Reeza Hendricks and Aiden Markram posted half-centuries on a warm and humid afternoon as South Africa was poised for a 300-plus total. But Siraj turned the tide with Kuldeep Yadav and Shahbaz Ahmed featuring in the wickets column. The chase will be tricky as the ball is keeping a tad low and it will be interesting how the Indians go about it. Back in a bit.
SA 256/5 after 46 overs: It’s been fantastic bowling from India at the death and only 23 runs have come from the last 18 deliveries. They have taken the pace and have kept Miller quiet. Siraj has picked a couple of key wickets and it’s been brilliant from the pacer.
SA 237/5 after 42 overs: Miller holds the key for South Africa but the Indian bowlers have done well so far and have managed to keep the big-hitter at bay. A top shot through the extra cover region showed what Miller is capable of and with 48 deliveries remaining, South Africa will eye a late surge and a score of 280 will be challenging.
SA 215/4 after 38 overs: Kuldeep Yadav takes an important wicket and it is the prized scalp of Klaasen. But that brings killer Miller into the middle. Kuldeep thoroughly deserved the wicket and that’s an excellent running catch from Siraj at long-on. A couple of more wickets will give India further control.
SA 181/3 after 34 overs: Washington Sundar is yet to get into a rhythm as the spinner hasn’t been able to trouble the batsmen much, going at an economy of 7.80 rpo. Siraj, meanwhile, has been brilliant, posing questions to the batsmen and has picked two wickets. Klaasen is continuing from where he left and Markram is eyeing a century. The game is evenly poised at the moment, with India aiming for wickets, and South Africa largely untroubled despite the fall of Hendricks.
SA 168/2 after 31 overs: WICKET - Siraj strikes and what a move from Dhawan as the strike bowler delivers by picking the wicket of Hendricks, who falls for a brilliant 76-ball 74. Hendricks thought he nailed a slightly short-of-length delivery for a maximum but hits it straight down the throat of Shahbaz Ahmed at deep square leg. It wasn’t a wicket-taking delivery but India will take that as they needed the wicket desparately. Heinrich Klaasen walks out to the middle.
SA 157/2 after 30 overs: Avesh Khan is back into the attack and Shahbaz Ahmed is about to finish his spell. But to credit to Markram and Hendricks for batting heat and humidity and manufacturing half-centuries of great merit. The partnership is 117 off 121 balls and India needs to break this stand. The current run-rate is 5.24 and with the likes of Miller and Klaasen in the sheds, South Africa are in a comfortable position.
SA 130/2 after 26 overs: This is the partnership that South Africa was looking and Reeza Hendricks has reached his half-century and Aiden Markram is also reaching his fifty. Shahbaz Ahmed and Kuldeep Yadav are bowling in the right areas, purchasing a bit of spin but with two set batsmen at the crease, South Africa going strong at the moment. Wickets, are the need of the hour for India.
SA 110/2 after 22 overs: Markram and Hendricks have brought the 100 up for South Africa and this is an excellent partnership. The running between the wickets has been excellent and slowly both the batsmen are opening up, playing shots on both sides of the wicket and getting the boundaries occasionally. India will aim to break the stand and make further inroads.
SA 77/2 after 18 overs: The run rate is just around 4.28 rpo and Shardul Thakur has been introduced into the attack. The partnership with Markram and Hendricks is 37 off 50 deliveries and in the last five overs only 22 runs have been scored. India in control of proceedings.
SA 59/2 after 15 overs: Kuldeep Yadav is into the attack and he has kept a lid on the scoring. Markram is under pressure and the chinaman has started well. Spin at both ends with Shahbaz and Kuldeep operating in tandem.
SA 50/2 after 12 overs: Reeza Hendricks and Aiden Markram have a job in their hands and it will be an important partnership from South Africa's point of view. For India, they will be looking to pick a couple of more wickets to keep the game in their hands.
SA 40/2 after 10 overs: WICKET- Shahbaz Ahmed strikes and he has a wicket on debut by trapping Malan. India went for a successful review after Virender Sharma ruled not out but that looked plumb as the ball hit the back leg of Malan. Siraj got the big wicket of Quinton de Kock and now with Shahbaz trapping Malan, India is in control of the proceedings.
SA 35/1 after 8 overs: Malan and Hendricks have stitched a 28-run partnership off 35 deliveries and Avesh Khan starts with an expensive over. Shahbaz has been excellent, bowling at an economical rate and Avesh would look to not spray the ball and maintain good line and length.
SA 19/1 after 5 overs: Reeza Hendricks joins Janneman Malan and the former breaks away from the shackles with a beautiful pull to keep the scorecard ticking. Shahbaz Ahmed has been introduced into the attack and the spinner has started well.
SA 7/1 after 3 overs: WICKET - Mohammed Siraj provides the breakthrough for India as he castles Quinton de Kock. De Kock chases a wide delivery only to get an inside edge and the Indians are ecstatic. There is low bounce on the wicket and not much carry to the wicket-keeper. On the other end, it’s spin as Washington Sundar comes into play early in the innings.
Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan are out there in the middle and it will be Mohammed Siraj who will start proceedings with the new ball.
India Playing XI: Shikhar Dhawan(c), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson(w), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Avesh Khan
South Africa Playing XI: Janneman Malan, Quinton de Kock(w), Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj(c), Bjorn Fortuin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje
There is plenty to play for from India’s point of view and Sanju Samson looked absolutely stunning in the first ODI, almost winning the match for India.
The Shikhar Dhawan-led India will aim to level the series while South Africa will aim for a repeat show with David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen butchering the Indian attack in Lucknow.
With series on the line, India looks to bounce back against confident South Africa.
The covers came on at the JSCA Stadium on Saturday afternoon, some time after South Africa finished its training session. The drizzle thankfully didn’t last long.
Though some dark clouds lingered on for a while, the day became bright and sunny later on. Both India and South Africa must be hoping the weather stays like that on Sunday as well.
After the rains claimed 20 overs from the first One-Day International at Lucknow on Thursday, the two teams must be wanting to play a full match. The forecast doesn’t rule out rain completely, though, but things do not look as bleak as they did on the eve of the first of the three-game series.
