  • 12:43 PM IST

    Live: India A 214/7 vs South Africa A in Overs 46, Manish Pandey 85(95), Dhawal Kulkarni 18 (20): Singles have done the job for Julkarni and Pandey until now. Pandey should now make sure India cross the line with ease. Although a wicket here could still tilt things a bit. Kulkarni has played his part well though.

  • 12:29 PM IST

    Live: India A 200/7 vs South Africa A in Overs 43, Manish Pandey 78(86), Dhawal Kulkarni 11 (11): Well, a succession of wickets has made things difficult for India A. First Pandya, then Jayant Yadav, those two wickets have turned the game on its head. Manish Pandey is still at the crease though. And Dhawal Kulkarni has hit a few too. He hit a SIX off Aaron Phangiso. Still anyone’s game this!

  • 12:21 PM IST

    Dhawal Kulkarni is the new man in! India in deep trouble! Can Manish Pandey still take them to a win?

  • 12:19 PM IST

    OUT! Jayant Yadav b Phangiso 1 (7)

  • 12:14 PM IST

    Jayant Yadav is the new man in for India A!

  • 12:11 PM IST

    OUT! Hardik Pandya c Phehlukwayo b Paterson 18 (26)

  • 12:08 PM IST

    Live: India A 184/5 vs South Africa A in Overs 39, Manish Pandey 76(83), Hardik Pandya 16 (23): Both Pandya and Pandey have not given their wicket away and the runs have come. It might get a bit close, if a wicket falls now, but these two have made it look easy. Manish Pandey especially has played a splendid knock so far. Important for him to finish.

  • 11:50 AM IST

    Live: India A 154/5 vs South Africa A in Overs 35, Manish Pandey 53(67), Hardik Pandya 10 (15): If someone can win it for India A, it is this pair. Pandey has played magnificently to earn his half-century. He has lost partners from the other end but has carried on. Pandya will have to show some of his batting potential and take India A to their first victory in the quadrangular series.

  • 11:36 AM IST

    Hardik Pandya is the new man in!

  • 11:33 AM IST

    Live: India A 135/5 vs South Africa A in Overs 31.1, Manish Pandey 44(59): The partnership which was taking the game away from South Africa A, was broken by Adams. With a new batsman in, South Africa A will try and take another wicket here, and would want to seep through the IND A lower order. With less than 100 runs needed now, the game is at an interesting stage. And India A have lost another one here! Samson falls!

    OUT! Sanju Samson c & b Adams 2 (9)

    DRINKS

  • 11:28 AM IST

Pandey has hit five boundaries in his innings so far. Jadhav has hit three. India A are going along nicely now.

  • 11:02 AM IST

    Live: India A 98/3 vs South Africa A |Overs 24| : Manish Pandey 26(42), Kedar Jadhav 10(25): Pandey is now looking settled. He struck two consecutive fours off Dane Paterson’s over. No more wickets lost would definitely take India A to a win here. Jadhav will have to contribute to Pandey’s efforts though. He is quite capable of scoring runs at a quick pace, but just needs to hand in there for India A.

  • 10:51 AM IST

    Live: India A 84/3 vs South Africa A |Overs 21| : Manish Pandey 18(34), Kedar Jadhav 5(15): The runs have been difficult to come, but that is not what is important right now. India A cannot afford to lose any more wicket from here on, if they lose wickets, things will only get difficult. Manish Pandey will have to play a captain’s knock. And he has an able partner in Kedar Jadhav with him. Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya the next batsmen to come.

  • 10:32 AM IST

    Live: India A 68/3 vs South Africa A |Overs 16| : Manish Pandey 7(17), Kedar Jadhav 1(2): The run-rate has gone a bit down. Looked like both the players wanted to spend some time at the crease, but Mandeep, has has been sent packing. Third wicket down for India A. Kedar Jadhav is out in the middle. Wickets have been tumbling at regular intervals for India. A. Someone will have to calm things down a bit.

  • 10:10 AM IST

    Live: India A 12/0 vs South Africa A |Overs 4| : Karun Nair 5(11), Faiz Fazal 7 (13): India A have begun well. Fazal scored the first boundary off the innings in the third over off Pretorius. Nair has started cautiously. India A would not want to lose early wickets in the chase.

  • 8:50 AM IST

    Well, South Africa A have done well here. They were 3 wickets down for just 35 runs. But David Miller and Qaasim Adams turned things around for them. They put on an important partnership and made sure the team cross 200. India A bowlers did bounce back with wickets and Dhwal Kulkarni,with 4 wickets was the star of the show for them. Can they reply well this time around. Remember they were all out for just 55 in the last game against Australia A. Let’s see how the batting unit does. Stay tuned.

  • 8:44 AM IST

    Live: India A vs South Africa A 230/8 |Overs 50| : Aaron Phangiso 1(1), Dwaine Pretorious 19 (27): Last over of the SA (A) innings coming up. And Kulkarni has another wicket to his name. Sisanda Magala is caught by Pandya. Kulkarni finishes with 4 for 37 in his 10 overs. Can India A achase down 231? We’ll have to see.

  • 8:41 AM IST

  • 8:32 AM IST

    OUT! A Phehlukwayo c Mandeep Singh b Kulkarni 6 (12)

Greetings everyone! Hello and Welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket coverage of the India A vs South Africa A, ODI game, of the quadrangular series being played in Australia. India A lost their first match of the competition in a humiliating manner, after getting bowled out by Australia A for just 55, and then eventually losing the match by 8 wickets. The Manish Pandey-led side has a lot to prove after the last defeat. South Africa A too, lost their first match,against Cricket Australia’s National Performance Squad (NPS), they will also be looking to get thier first points on the Points Table. Sit back as we bring you all the live updates. READ: India A vs South Africa A, Quadrangular A Team One-Day Series Predictions and Preview: Both teams seek 1st win

India’s young guns, Karun Nair, Mandeep Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Akshar Patel and Manish Pandey, were all part of the India squad that toured Zimbabwe in the recent series. The 3-0 whitewash of the Zimbabweans in the ODI series then, did include good batting displays from Nair apart from KL Rahul who is part of the Test squad in the Caribbean, while the T20 series saw fine performances from Mandeep Singh, Jadhav and Akshar as well. It almost looked as if that tour didn’t help them improve, which is surely not the case. Yuzvendra Chahal, the leg-spinner did manage to get Marcus Stoinis bowled and Akshar did pick a wicket, but not enough runs to defend meant Australia A cruised to a victory.

With still a lot to play for in the quadrangular series, both India A and South Africa A will, therefore, look to bounce back from defeat and learn from their mistakes in their previous matches. They need some points on the table, else it will not be long until they find themselves playing for the third and fourth spots in the competition.

Squads

South Africa A: Heino Kuhn, Reeza Hendricks (c), Theunis de Bruyn, Dane Vilas (wk), David Miller, Qaasim Adams, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, Sisanda Magala, Aaron Phangiso, Dane Paterson
