South Africa had no answer to the skills and guile of the Indian wrist spinners as they lost 9 wickets for 67 runs to succumb to a 9-wicket defeat in the second ODI at SuperSport Park on Sunday.

The entire match lasted less than 53 overs as the Proteas were bowled out for 118 runs – the lowest ever total in an ODI at this venue – and India then cantered to victory with the match only going a couple of overs past the lunch interval.

Opener Manjot Kalra produced a sparkling 101 not out as India scored a handsome eight-wicket victory over Australia at the Bay Oval in Tauranga today to become the first side to win four titles at the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup.

The left-hander struck eight fours and three sixes during his 102-ball knock as favourites India coasted to 220 for two in 38.5 overs, much to the delight of Indian supporters who formed the majority of the 3,000-odd spectators who turned out for the day-night match. A combined bowling effort had earlier helped dismiss Australia for 217 in 47.2 overs.

Aiden Markram has been appointed as the stand-in captain of the Standard Bank Proteas for the remainder of the Momentum One-Day International (ODI) series against India. Markram replaces Faf du Plessis, who has been ruled out of the series due to a fractured finger.

Cricket South Africa convenor of selectors, Linda Zondi, says the appointment is in line with their plans to grow a new group of leaders within the squad.

Rival captains, Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis, both scored superb centuries but in the end India coasted to a comfortable six-wicket victory with nearly 5 overs to spare in the opening Momentum ODI at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Thursday.

Du Plessis’ century (120 off 112 balls, 11 fours and 2 sixes) was marginally faster than Kohli’s (112 off 119 balls, 10 fours) but both innings had to be seen in the context of the match overall. The match was effectively decided in the first place by the Standard Bank Proteas only managed to score 51/4 in the 13 overs between the 15th and 28th overs and in the second by the Indian record third-wicket partnership in ODIs against South Africa of 189 off 188 balls between Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane (79 off 86 balls, 5 fours and 2 sixes).

Proteas all-rounder, JP Duminy, anticipates another highly competitive series against India in the upcoming six-match One-Day International (ODI) series starting at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Thursday. There isn’t much that separates the two teams on the ICC ODI rankings – South Africa leads India by one point at the top of the table – and the intensely contested Sunfoil Freedom Series has given a sample of what to expect in the limited-overs formats.

Duminy has been in sparking form for the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras in the Momentum One-Day Cup, and has been instrumental in leading the team to a home semi-final tomorrow - scoring 416 runs at an average of 52.  The all-rounder says he is relishing the opportunity to transfer the form into the upcoming series, which he believes will be ‘ closely fought’.
