Proteas clinch second highest win against India in 1st ODI

2013-12-05 21:59

South Africa: 358/4 (Quinton de Kock 135, AB de Villiers 77, Hashim Amla 65, JP Duminy 59* Mohammad Shami 3/68) beat India: (MS Dhoni 65, Virat Kohli 31, Ravindra Jadeja 29, Dale Steyn 3/25, Ryan McLaren 3/49) by 141 runs

The Proteas went about their business in a workmanlike fashion, making sure that no early wickets were lost. Oddly, it was the younger De Kock who found fluency quickly but Amla always seemed to find a shot that reminded the crowd of his class. After scratching his way to a 73-ball 50, Amla was the first to go, chopping a Mohammed Shami ball onto his stumps. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
