India vs South Africa 2018,2nd ODI at Centurion : India thump SA by 9 wickets and Chahal becomes first spinner to grab a fifer against SA

India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to field. The Indian bowlers were brilliant with Chahal picking up his maiden five-wicket haul in ODIs while Kuldeep Yadav took three wickets.

Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav starred for India as the visitors  bowled out South Africa for 118 in only 32.2 overs and then chased down the total in 20.3 overs with nine wickets remaining at the SuperSport Park in Centurion today.

With a figure of 5/22, Chahal became the first spinner ever to take an ODI fifer against South Africa in South Africa. 

In reply, after Rohit Sharma got out, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli guided India to victory to take a 2-0 lead in the six-match series.

With two runs to get, players returned after 40 minutes and nine balls after the break, India cruised to victory. India lead the six-match ODI series 2-0.

Aiden Markram, South Africa captain: Not the best performance. Each person will look back to get how we can get better. We have got a couple of days to turn it around, that’s the beauty of the sport.  Few soft dismissals, including myself. I got to lead from the front. Not the ideal day, didn’t go how we wanted to go. Maybe it’s a good position to be in, may bring out he best from us.

Virat Kohli, India captain: We thought the ball will do something in the morning. We didn’t let them get to a good start. We knew if we get the openers, their middle-order is inexperienced. We will look to cash in on that in future games as well.We knew the wickets will be hard and dry and some bounce, and we knew our wrist spinners are good enough to turn the ball anywhere.

Yuzvendra Chahal, who picked his maiden five-wicket haul in ODIs, was declared the Man of the Match.

Chahal: It is my first main tour. We are used to play in such conditions and in overseas it is more about your mindset. When I first struck, Kuldeep came in and took two wickets. It puts pressure on the batsmen.
