Kohli, Rahane power India to easy win in 1st ODI

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.

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’.
