Markram named South African one-day captain

Virat Kohli 2nd ODI: India look to take advantage of South Africa's injury woes
Eugene Bates | 06 February, 2018, 15:25

Chahal (5/22) and Kuldeep Yadav (3/20) combined beautifully to bowl out the South Africans for a meagre 118 in 32.2 overs. Only Kohli, Rahul Dravid, and Sachin Tendulkar have also scored five consecutive one-day half centuries.

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal took career-best figures as India cruised to a thumping nine-wicket One-Day International victory over a woeful South Africa on Sunday, though their moment of triumph was reduced to a farce by the umpires. If the wickets fell at all early in the innings they were due to poor shot selection from Rohit Sharma and run out of Shikhar Dhawan because of poor judgement from his partner at the other end, Virat Kohli.

De Kock was hit on the hands a couple of times by Jasprit Bumrah in the second ODI at Centurion, as a result of which he picked up a wrist injury. They are already trailing in the series having lost the first two games but injuries continue to haunt South Africa. Farhaan Behardien has been named as his replacement, and Devilliers is still out with injury. If they can sustain such performances, they will achieve things few Indian teams have managed in the past, but this is still a big question mark. The onus was on Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla to bat for a long period especially with an inexperienced middle order to follow.

Wicketkeeper batsman, Quinton de Kock, has now also been ruled out of the limited overs series. India's spin bowlers exerted pressure on the home team's batting lineup, though, and both Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav were impressive, bowling tight over after tight over.

Besides the loss, South Africa have been dealt a further loss after du Plessis was ruled out for the ODI's and T20s with a finger fracture he suffered during the match.

"The pitch was harder than Durban and the spinners used it".

When and where is the India vs South Africa 3rd ODI? The Indian team management has repeatedly said that rankings don't warrant much attention, but these are brownie points that Kohli and Co. wouldn't want to miss out on.

Markram has been identified as a potential future captain since he led South Africa to victory at the 2014 Under-19 World Cup.
