SA bring in Magala for JansenJanuary 21, 2022 14:11
India 16-0 (2 ovs) vs SA | Scorecard
KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan are the two openers for India, while Lungi Ngidi will bowl the first over for the hosts.
The first ball is full and on the stumps as Rahul pushes it on the off-side and gets the next off the inside half of the bat on the leg side.
Slightly short from Ngidi as Rahul steers it towards point before he leaves the fourth ball, which is full and wide but away from the stumps.
The fifth ball is pushed on the leg side off his hips by Rahul before he runs the last ball to thirdman for a single to get off the mark.
Sisanda Magala, playing in only his 2nd ODI, comes into the attack. The first ball is short and wide as Rahul steers it to thirdman for a single.
The next ball is down the leg side to Dhawan and is ruled a wide.
Dhawan then flicks a full delivery along the ground through midwicket for a four to get off the mark in confident fashion.
Magala finally gets his line right as he bowls on good length just outside the off-stump and Dhawan pushes it into the covers.
Magala errs again, this time bowling a wayward delivery down the leg side beating even wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock for five wides.
Dhawan cuts the fourth ball but can't get it past the fielder on the off-side and then pushes a full delivery back to the bowler.
Magala gifts Dhawan a half-volley on the pads which the left-hander clips through square leg for another four.
15 runs from the over as India race to 16 for no loss in two overs.
