Live streaming of India vs South Africa 1st ODI Durban will be available online. The Virat Kohli-led India will look to register their first ever ODI series in South Africa when they take on Faf du Plessis’ men in a six-match series starting Thursday

Virat Kohli's masterful 112 maintained India's winning momentum in South Africa as he led his team to a convincing six-wicket win in the first one-day global on Thursday.

Du Plessis and Andile Phehlukwayo kept the runs flowing with a 56-run partnership, during which Du Plessis brought up his century. The 21-year-old South African bowler had to bear the consternation of seeing a life given to the Indian captain after his century, when an easy catch offered to Khaya Zondo running in from deep square leg. "Playing two wrist spinners and Kedar as the offie, along with Bhuvi and Bumrah, gives us an opportunity to do whatever we have to do", Kohli said. The duo added a record 189 runs for the third wicket before being separated in the 43rd over when Rahane, aiming to finish the game early, ended up being caught at long-on. Ever since his debut in 2008, Kohli has gone past some of the greatest players in the cricketing history and at only 29, has the second most number of centuries, behind only his mentor Sachin Tendulkar.

Kohli's match-winning innings also overshadowed the feats of his counterpart, Faf du Plessis, who rescued a faltering South African effort with 120 from 112 balls. Feeling strong. Definitely didn't get enough, we didn't bat well enough. Farhaan Behardien comes in as replacement for Du Plessis, who's aiming to be fit for the first Test against Australia in Durban from March 1.

The runs came thick and fast for the Proteas as both de Kock and du Plessis hit three more boundaries in the 14th over bowled by Hardik Pandya (0-41). Du Plessis, alternately, would have been given out lbw on 18 if India had opted for DRS at the end of the 13th over.

Flake said the front of the train "smashed the truck pretty badly" and saw both of the passengers of the truck were badly injured. Walking down the aisle of the Amtrak train taking members of Congress to a retreat, Indiana Senator Todd Young felt the jolt.

South Africa's Quinton de Kock. "I reckon we were about 50-60-70 runs short".

Speaking about India's win win at Durban over South Africa, Kohli said, "First match of the series is important".

Kuldeep Yadav with his career-best 3 for 34 and Yuzvendra Chahal's 2 for 45 halted the South Africa batting. They are working wonderfully for the team.

"As a captain, it's outstanding when you have two guys who know what they want to do". Rohit is a genius One-day International (ODI) batsman, and that confidence just shows vis-a-vis when he is playing Tests and still looking to establish himself.
