45.3 Kagiso Rabada to MS Dhoni

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to MS Dhoni. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. MS Dhoni finishes the game in style. Latches onto the short delivery, and pummels it through backward square for four.When India are chasing, they are more than likely going to be the winning team. That is because they have Virat Kohli in their team. A 33rd ODI century for him today, and alongside Ajinkya Rahane, made the chase of 270 look remarkably simple.The hosts were clearly 50 runs short of a good total in the end, and they had no big contributors apart from their captain, who struck his 9th ODI ton to keep the Proteas in the hunt at the halfway point. India cruised to victory though, and go 1-0 up in the six match series. Find out if South Africa can fight back to level things up, or if India can extend their lead in the second ODI on Sunday.
