First ODI: Du Plessis's century guides SA to 269

India will play South Africa in 1st ODI in Thursday

Yadav (3/34) and his fellow spinner Chahal (2/45) shared five wickets between them to restrict South Africa to 269 for 8, a target which India overwhelmed with six wickets in hand to take a 1-0 lead in the six-match ODI series here last night.

Chris Morris contributed 37 runs with bat lower down the order.

India vs South Africa, 1st ODI, latest update: Bhuvi bowls the final over. "I would say middle order (specifically No.4) is the only spot we are looking for experimentation at the moment", said Kohli. Rahane too played a very handy inning of 79 runs while Kohli looked unstoppable as he completed his 33rd ODI hundred, 2nd most in the ODI history.

And Beyoncé is not the only celebrity that Chrissy loves as she previously confessed she has a "professional" crush on Zac Efron. She said: 'I try to deprecate him because he's so flawless .

There is simply no one better than Kohli in a run-chase with the batting maestro now averaging a ton every six games while chasing. "Definitely, we did not score enough, we did not bat well enough", he said. The South African skipper and Quinton de Kock (34 off 49 balls) realised 53 runs with du Plessis being the dominant partner.

A mishit by Dhawan sent the ball rolling slowly off the pitch, and it was barely onto the third wicket when Kohli forced a single to be taken.

"South African batsmen wouldn't have seen a lot of these leggies, so they will need to go back and do their homework". Picking up one or two wickets in the top ten is what we wanted to do.

Budget 2018: Modi government slashes excise duty on petrol and diesel
In addition to the GST, the government was charging highest rates of Petroleum Development Levy (PDL) from the consumers. Meanwhile, spokesperson of the prime minister has issued clarification relating to increase in the petroleum prices.

India set off their ODI campaign against South Africa with their first match at Durban, a venue that hasn't yielded a win for the visitors against the home-side, so far. And then the two wrist-spinners (Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal), outstanding bowling by both of them. South Africa is the top-ranked team and India its nearest rival at No 2. Apart from this, India also played two triangular series in 1996-97 and 2001-02, which included teams from Zimbabwe and Kenya, but both of them emerged from the victor of South Africa. Faf du Plessis (120) signalled his intention with hat-trick of boundaries in the ninth over from Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1-71) as South Africa ended the first powerplay with a score of 49 for one. "India bowled really well and we were 50 to 70 runs short".

"As a captain, it's outstanding when you have two guys who know what they want to do". It's a pretty easy decision because of the conditions around.
