Faf du Plessis Takes Responsibility of South Africa Loss

Faf du Plessis Takes Responsibility of South Africa Loss”

Disciplined Indian bowling dismissed world top-ranked ODI team South Africa for 191 runs in 44.3 overs despite a good start from the latter at The Oval.

We look at the key statistics behind Team India's crucial Champions Trophy encounter against the Proteas.

Two run-outs of skipper AB de Villiers (16) and David Miller (1) within the space of six deliveries triggered the slide from which they could never recover, with nearly all the Indian bowlers succeeding in choking the runs.

The series gets underway on June 21 at the Ageas Bowl, with further games at Taunton on June 23 and Cardiff on June 25. South Africa eventually crumbled to 192 runs well before finishing their 50 overs.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Hardik Pandya maintained the stranglehold later in South Africa's innings.

He does not know why South Africa continue to choke in big events, but a defiant AB de Villiers insisted that he wants to stay on as captain and take the Proteas to the World Cup triumph in 2019.

Dhawan crunched Morris over mid-on for his eighth four to reach his 50 and the left-hander played some brutal strokes before he skied Tahir to Du Plessis at long-off. Pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar bagged two wickets each to get the plaudits. It was a near-perfect game for them as the bowlers as well as the fielders made amends for their lacklustre performance against Sri Lanka here on Thursday. "I still care deeply about the environment that I spent so much time building as a player, and it hurts to see such an unrecognisable South Africa performance", Smith wrote in his column for the ICC's official website.

"When India were batting they took the pressure, created momentum and then just ran with it".

Dhawan sent a More Morkel delivery over the same boundary in the next over before a Phehlukwayo misfield allowed the Indian opener to add another four runs.

After a huge victory against arch rival Pakistan in the first game, Virat Kohli and Co. faced defeat in their second match against Sri Lanka.

The 28-year-old's honest criticism played a major role in helping the 'Men in Blue' hammer South Africa at the same venue on Sunday and book a place in the semi-finals of the 2017 Champions Trophy.

India captain Virat Kohli: "The pressure was built by the bowlers and that I think resulted in those breakthroughs we got in the field". I believe we're very close as a unit.

At 12.24pm Faf du Plessis nudged Jadeja to point and tried to take a single that was not there - and even a full-length dive by De Villiers could not stop one of cricket's most fleet-footed players from being run out.
