KXIP vs KKR Live Score

India dished out a strong performance in the second ODI to take a 2-0 lead in the six-match ODI series.

Sharma fell for 15, caught by Morkel at fine leg off Kagiso Rabada, but Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli put on an unbeaten 91 for the second wicket to secure an easy win. Chahal and Yadav shared eight wickets between each other wrapping up the hosts' innings on a mere 118 in 32.2 overs.

India captain Virat Kohli chose to bowl first and chase again against South Africa in the second one-day global at SuperSport Park on Sunday. South Africa had a new captain as their star player, and skipper Du Plessis was sidelined because of injury.

The two wrist spinners both extracted plenty of turn from a dry pitch on a ground which normally does not help spin bowling after Indian captain Virat Kohli won the toss and sent South Africa in. Despite defeat in Durban, du Plessis was adamant that "two spinners didn't fit into their team balance".

Talking about the current ODI series, Jennings said that South Africa do not have a way back into the series. Virat Kohli, who has named 35 different playing elevens in 35 Tests, could very well field the same team for this third successive ODI.

A strokeful 51 from Shikhar Dhawan a confident 46 from captain Virat Kohli helped India overhaul South Africa's lowly total of 118 with almost 30 overs to spare. The onus was on Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla to bat for a long period especially with an inexperienced middle order to follow. De Kock also lost his wicket after Alma was dismissed. Anushka was seen accompanying Kohli during the Test series against South Africa.

David Miller and JP Duminy played worldwide cricket after a while and looked rusty. Their most famous win here came against Pakistan in the 2003 ODI World Cup.

India duly completed the win nine balls after the restart, but questions remained over whether a tweak to the game's rules could offer a more commonsensical approach to prevent more such absurd endings. The Chahal-Yadav pair have been very successful in recent series', and that they have carried their form overseas as well is a positive sign for the Indians.

The whole team of South Africa could only manage 118 runs.
