131

The Hush Post: South Africa were all out for 118 in the second One day International at Centurion. This was the lowest ODI score at Centurion by any team ever, the last was 119 by Zimbabwe a couple of years ago. The proteas were quite in control initially but they lost 4 quick wickets in a gap of 14 runs between the score of 39 and 53. The first to go was Hashim Amla. He went to a good length delivery by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Amla gave an inside edge and went for a referral. The edge was found and he had to walk out. In walked stand-in skipper Markram, after Amla’s dismissal at 39 for one. De Cock and Markram had barely put in 13 runs when at 52, it was Chahal who struck Quinton De Cock on the last ball of his over. The next two wickets fell within two runs, first Markram and then Miller as the scorecard read 53/4. At the score of 99, Zondo was the fifth man to walk back to the pavilion caught by Pandya of Chahal’s ball and he was soon followed by Duminy who went back for 25 runs again of Chahal’s ball. Chris Morris was then joined by Kasigo Rabada at the score of 107/6. But Rabada did not last long as his wicket fell at the proteas score of 110. He was out to a Kuldeep Yadav delivery. Moments later Morni Morkel was out LBW to Chahal at the porteas score of 117. Then Tahir was clean bowled by Bumrah’s yorker and Chahal got another wicket this time it was Morris and proteas were back to the pavilion. Chahal picked up five of the SA scalps.
