Commentary

South Africa won by 141 runs | South Africa Vs India Live Score, 1st ODI

That's all we have for you from here. Do join us for the second ODI on Sunday. Until then take care.....
de Kock: I am very proud of my performance as I didn't expect all these things. It's always nice to get Man of the Match, but it was a team effort. Amla was always telling me to go for the shots and play positively. They bowled well intially and were hitting the right areas. I am not a star yet as we have so many stars in our team and it's just a starting phase for me.
Quinton de Kock is the Man of the Match for his splendid century.
de Villiers: It's important to be confident no matter what your previous results are. We respect India as they are the No.1 team in the world. I also would have bowled first and I am lucky as I lost the toss. We got off to a great start and that laid a good foundation for others to build on it. I am happy with my own form and JP (Duminy) was fantastic today and he made things easy for me at the other end. We always knew if we take on the bowlers in the slog overs, that would put pressure on them. Steyn was splendid today and congrats to him. We know India will bounce back and this is a huge series for us and we will fight it out.
Dhoni: The thumb is pretty fine and I am ready for the next game. We didn't start off well with our bowling especially on this track, which offered some extra bounce. The bowling department let us down, but our batting also didn't click. We can't blame this on the lack of practice games as we knew we had exactly how much time we had. One or two days extra could have helped. All credit to South Africa today. We let ourselves down as we didn't get off to a positive start. I was disappointed with our bowling especially with the new ball. Shami and the spinners bowled in the right areas, with rest of the bowlers failed to deliver. We can't rely on reverse swing in these conditions. I am looking forward to the next 2 games. Hoping for the best.
An abject surrender from India. This is South Africa's second biggest victory over India in terms of runs. The last sentence sums up the night India just had. Chasing a mammoth 359 runs for victory, India got off to a tough start as they were tested by some top class fast bowling from Steyn and Morkel, with the former unlucky on numerous occasions as he went past the outside edge on a consistent basis. Kohli showed some resistance and struck some meaty boundaries, but McLaren worked him over with a peach of a delivery. Dhoni waged a lone battle and he didn't get the support from the other end. All South African seamers were amongst the wickets and India have to sort the short ball issue pretty soon as they were bounced out consistently. Stay tuned for the presentation.....

40.2 Dale Steyn to MS Dhoni W
out Bowled!! The end is nigh for India, back of a length delivery closer to the off stump, Dhoni was looking to force it away off the back foot, but the extra bounce did him in here and he ends up chopping it back onto the stumps. Dhoni b Steyn 65(71) [4s-8 6s-1]
40.2 Dale Steyn to MS Dhoni 5wd
5 wides, this is frustrating, sharp bouncer on the stumps, far too high over the batsman, even de Kock can't reach to it
