Winning the toss and batting first in the 2nd ODI Indian openers KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan did a great job and they added a half-century partnership. After that, India lost back-to-back wickets of Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli in the 12th and 13th over and India looked in slight trouble.

However, captain KL Rahul and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant showed a batting masterclass and they batted brilliantly against the Proteas bowling unit.

The duo played 111 balls and scored 115 runs, Rahul contributed 31 runs and Pant contributed 83 in the partnership before the former was dismissed by Sisanda Magala in the 32nd over.

Soon, Rishabh Pant joined captain Rahul in the dugout as he was dismissed in the third ball of the 33rd over bowled by spinner Tabraiz Shamsi.

Pant after facing two dot balls in the over decided to attack the Proteas spinner and he came down the track to attack and smashed the ball down the ground but it didn’t get the distance.

Proteas Aiden Markram ran forward from long-on to dive forward and take a good catch to dismiss Pant. Rishabh Pant’s innings ended at 85 runs off 71 balls including 10 fours and 2 maximums.
