IND vs SA 2nd ODI 2022: Hosts South Africa took a 2-0 lead in the three-match series while India faced successive defeats.

KL Rahul speaks:

"I think they are playing some really good cricket at home, we are making mistakes as well in the middle. It's a good learning for us. We are a team that takes a lot of pride in winning, but good learning for us and hopefully we can grow."

22:04 (IST)21 Jan 2022

South Africa beat India by 7 wickets; taking an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the three-match series. Jasprit Bumrah finishes with 1/37 in his 10 overs. When mostly all went for more than 6 an over, he conceded just 37 runs. Another terrific bowling performance by the master.

Markram knocks his partner off


21:56 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Back to back fours

Markram takes on Bhuvi and hits him over cover and then smashes it past mid-on. Sheer class. SA: 270/3 after 44 overs

Bhuvneshwar - last five ODIs in SA (ER 6.82)

21:35 (IST)21 Jan 2022
SA recover with RVD

Aiden Markram and Rassie van der Dussen have steadied the ship for the Proteas. With 1177 ODI runs at an average of 73.56, Rassie van der Dussen FireFirecurrently holds the highest batting average OF ALL TIME in ODI cricket.

21:09 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Double break for India

Caught&Bowled!! Chahal snares Bavuma for 35 off 36 balls. Bavuma looks to play Chahal across the line, closes the face of the bat early. Pops a simple catch back to the leggie. Both the set batters are gone. SA: 214/3 after 35.4 overs | South Africa need 74 runs in 86 balls

21:04 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Bowled! Bumrah strikes

Just as we were saying, the pressure of the nervous '90s gets to Malan who is knocked over for 91 off 108 balls. Bumrah does the job for KL Rahul's India. SA: 212/2 after 34.4 overs | South Africa need 76 runs in 92 balls at 4.96 RPO

21:02 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Janneman Malan into the 90's

Impressive numbers from Proteas batters

20:50 (IST)21 Jan 2022
SA crusing along

Shardul Thakur [3.0-0-12-1] is back into the attack. And he begins with a poor delivery to Janneman Malan, who is quick to pounce on the short ball on the leg. SA: 196/1 after 32 overs. South Africa need 92 runs at 5.11 RPO

20:48 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Yuzi Chahal has been unlucky today.

Wicketless even after so many good balls.


20:34 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Bavuma, Malan keep SA steady

Temba Bavuma, who scored a century in the previous game, is looking comfortable once again. The South Africa skipper is building a solid partnership with Janneman Malan. Time running out for India. SA need 112 off 126. SA: 176/1 (29)

20:32 (IST)21 Jan 2022

It was a cross-seamed delivery on a good length on the off from Iyer and Janneman Malan who short-arm hits it powerfully over mid-wicket. SA: 160/1 after 26 overs

20:29 (IST)21 Jan 2022
150 up for SOUTH AFRICA
20:27 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Finally Venkatesh Iyer gets the ball

Venkatesh Iyer is into the attack for the first time in ODIs! He did not bowl at all in the first ODI in which he made his ODI debut! 

20:09 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Lbw!!! Quinton de Kock.

Shardul Thakur breaks the partnership. It's his golden arm that breaks the partnership. Thakur removes de Kock (78) following a review and trapping him in front. SA: 132/1 after 22 overs


20:07 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Half a chance!

Thakur to de Kock and a close shave. Half-a-chance it was as de Kock swung it towards the leg and it brushes the glove and falls just over the bails, Pant could've caught that too but fails to. Just a reminder that on the same wicket Indian top-order batters played Maharaj, Shamsi, and a part-time offie(Markram) and struggled. SA: 128/0 after 21 overs

19:47 (IST)21 Jan 2022
100-run partnership

South African openers playing akin to the T20 format and taking the attack to the Indian bowlers.  Quinton de Kock not out on 67*(52) and Janneman Malan on 40*(50). SA: 109/0 after 17 overs. 


19:23 (IST)21 Jan 2022

36 ball 50 for Quinton De Kock. 27th ODI fifty for the South African wicketkeeper. QDK continues to pile up runs against India. He has been phenomenal in this innings and his conversion rate against India is very very good. SA: 74/0 after 11.2 overs 

19:21 (IST)21 Jan 2022
India lose the review!

Ashwin turns it past Janneman Malan who went for the reverse-sweep but could not execute it perfectly and the ball deflects off Pant who fails to gather. India take the review just in the nick of time and the impact is outside and India lose the review. Signs of desperation from the men in blue.

19:14 (IST)21 Jan 2022
Quinton de Kock on fire!

The South African opener is on 46 off 32 balls as South Africa get to 66/0 in 10 overs in Paarl. Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan have given a good start to the hosts. Now Chahal is into the attack and gets turn instantly. Can India get a wicket here?

IND vs SA updates:

Venkatesh Iyer

India’s handling of allrounder Venkatesh Iyer raises eyebrows

India's Venkatesh Iyer. (AP Photo)What’s the role of Venkatesh Iyer in the team? That’s one of the many puzzles floating around the Indian ODI team that plays a brand of outdated cricket. There are quite a few issues from the run-getting pace of the top order to lack of wicket-taking bowlers in the middle overs to lack of finishers but Iyer’s case is a good example as any to capture the confusion in the camp. The stand-in captain KL Rahul, and more so head coach Rahul Dravid, cannot absolve themselves of the mismanagement of the seam-bowling all-rounder who made his ODI debut on Wednesday.

Absence of a seaming all-rounder in white-ball cricket has been the team’s biggest weakness of late, which got exposed at the T20 World Cup last year, when picking a half-fit Hardik Pandya backfired. Iyer was fast-tracked to the Indian team after the tournament because the selectors saw him as an option to fill the void. The team management selected him ahead of Suryakumar Yadav for the first ODI, ostensibly to use him as an all-rounder. Neither was he given a single over, nor was the southpaw utilised properly as a batsman. If he hasn’t impressed the team management as a bowler then why has he been picked and wasted low down in the order where he can’t even show his batting prowess? What was the communication between the selectors and the management? The top order, as it stands now, is clustered with batsmen who like to take their time. Something needs to change there to seize the momentum. Iyer would be actually ideal there as in case he succeeds, it will give India a breakthrough from rigidity they have slipped into. And they wouldn’t get a better chance than these bilateral series to try out options.

The ongoing series against the Proteas, or any bilateral series for that matter in the lead-up to the 2023 World Cup, is sort of inconsequential for India in terms of results. Being the hosts of the ICC event, India aren’t part of the World Cup Super League, as they will qualify automatically. From that perspective, bilateral series offers Dravid and company the chance to plug the void/loopholes and zero in on the right players and right combination.
