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’.

Proteas batsman, AB de Villiers, has been ruled out of the first three Momentum One-Day Internationals (ODI) against India due to a finger injury.  De Villiers sustained the injury to his right index finger during the third Sunfoil Test match against India and will require up to two weeks to make a full recovery.

The CSA medical team is hopeful De Villiers will recover in time for the fourth ‘Pink’ ODI at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Saturday, February 10th . The selectors have opted not to name a replacement.

The All-India Senior Selection Committee has picked the squad for the three-match T2OI series against South Africa. The T20I series will be played after the completion of the ODI series.

India's squad for T20I series: Virat Kohli (Captain) Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Manish Pandey, Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Jaydev Unadkat, Shardul Thakur

 

India have retained the ICC Test Championship mace and have also won an award of $1million after their victory in the Johannesburg Test ensured that South Africa cannot move ahead of them in the ICC Test Team Rankings at the 3 April cut-off date, even if they go on to win all four Tests against Australia in March.

India had arrived in South Africa on 124 points, with South Africa 13 points behind on 111 points. However, Virat Kohli’s men will return on 121 points as opposed to South Africa’s 115 points, which will be good enough for them to keep possession of the prestigious ICC Test Championship mace for the second year in succession at the April cut-off.

Dean Elgar became the first South African to carry his bat through a Test innings twice but it was not enough to stop India winning the final Sunfoil Freedom Test match at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium by 63 runs on Saturday.

Elgar had previously made 118 out of a total of 214 for the Standard Bank Proteas against England at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead in 2015 and today he finished unbeaten on 86 (240 balls, 9 fours and a six) as his team finished well short of their victory target of 241.

Virat Kohli inspired an Indian middle and lower-order attack as the visitors were able to set a daunting fourth innings target on day three of the Third Sunfoil Freedom Test Match at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Friday.

India managed to set the Proteas a victory target of 241 before they were bowled out in their second innings some hour and a quarter before the close of play. The Proteas had reached 17/1 in their response before Dean Elgar was felled by a short-pitched delivery and this plus the rain shower that followed caused the umpires to suspend play for the day some 20 minutes ahead of the scheduled close.
