Virat Kohli continued his domination of the Proteas bowling attack while the Indian wrist spinners continued their mastery over the home batsmen to give India an inevitable 124-run victory in the third Momentum ODI at PPC Newlands on Wednesday.

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).
