Cape Town - Former South African batsman Daryll Cullinan has described the Proteas' crushing nine-wicket defeat against India at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Sunday as an 'embarrassment'.
The Proteas were bundled out for just 118 in 32.2 overs with India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal taking career-best figures of 5-22.
South Africa's total was their lowest ever at home.
Cullinan, who played 138 ODIs for South Africa, described to Cricinfo what went wrong.
"It is a big shock and this must go down as South Africa's most humiliating defeat at home," Cullinan said in a video.
"It's the lowest score ever so where from now? What are they looking to do? Is it a change of personnel? They just have to play better cricket. It's left them with a lot to think about."
The Proteas now need to win all the remaining games - or hope for a draw or tie and three victories - to win the series and retain their No 1 spot on the ICC rankings.
The third ODI takes place at Newlands on Wednesday, starting at 13:00.
