One Day Internationals

Centuries from Amla and De Kock power South Africa to 10-wicket win

South Africa kept their collective foot on Bangladesh’s throat when they crushed their visitors by 10 wickets in the opening Momentum ODI at the Diamond Oval on Sunday.

Bangladesh, who won the toss and opted to bat first, posted what might have seemed a respectable total of 278/7 but in reality it was well short of where they needed to be. The Proteas only needed 17 runs for victory going into the final 10 overs and with all their wickets still intact they would probably have gone on to make somewhere close to 400 if they had needed to do so. 


South Africa vs Bangladesh: 1st ODI Preview

Proteas have hit the reset button ahead of the first Momentum One-Day International (ODI) against Bangladesh at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley on Sunday. Captain, Faf du Plessis, has warned against complacency following the 2-0 whitewash in the Sunfoil Test series, adding that the change in formats will be an opportunity for the visitors to regroup.

AB de Villiers and JP Duminy return to the international fold after a long break, and will bring a fresh injection of energy and hunger. The series is the start of an important summer of trial and assessment for the ODI squad, as plans for the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup start to gain momentum.


Phillips and Astle in line for ODI debut

Six players from New Zealand A have been added to the BLACKCAPS ODI squad for their upcoming series against India, with Glenn Phillips and Todd Astle in line to make their debut.

Astle, Matt Henry, Henry Nicholls, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips and George Worker will join the squad following the conclusion of the NZ A tour against India A. Ish Sodhi and Tom Bruce will travel with the squad for the ODIs, having been named in the Twenty20 squad. Ross Taylor and Worker will return to New Zealand following the conclusion of the ODIs. 


Dane Paterson called up to Proteas ODI squad

Dane Paterson is the only new cap in the Standard Bank Proteas ODI squad for the Momentum ODI Series against Bangladesh to be played later this month. Morne Morkel could not be considered because of injury.

“Dane did very well in the T20 International Series against England earlier this year, particularly when it came to death bowling,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) National Selection Panel Convener Linda Zondi. “We now want to see if he can do a similar job in the 50 overs format.


New Zealand announce 9 members of squad to Tour India

The BLACKCAPS have named nine players in their One Day International squad to take on India next month, with six more to be added from the New Zealand A side currently touring.

The two sides will square off in three ODIs, the first of which will be in Mumbai on 22 October. Three Twenty20s will follow the series, with the squad for this to be announced when the remainder of the ODI team is named.
