‘A win for Madiba’

2013-12-09 00:00

ANOTHER superb all-round performance from the Proteas saw India wilt at Kingsmead yesterday by 134 runs, the visitors bowled out for 146 in pursuit of 281 runs in the second Momentum One-Day International, giving South Africa the series ahead of the final one-day encounter at Centurion on Wednesday, a day/night clash.

Captain AB de Villiers (3) promoted himself up the order to number three, but was brilliantly stumped by Dhoni. All the while, Amla was moving toward his first international century in any form of the game at Kingsmead, which he reached from 116 balls with eight boundaries, his 12th ODI century. He was out soon after, touching a bouncer from Mohammed Sharmi to Dhoni. On reaching 59, Amla became the fastest batsman to 4 000 ODI runs, reaching the mark in his 81st innings, beating Viv Richards’s record of 88 innings.
