India achieved the small target of 119 runs with more than 30 overs to spare.

Additionally, India had climbed to the top spot in ICC ODI rankings after their win in Centurion and another win in Cape Town will help them open up a gap in the standings. At the scheduled time of break, India were 93 for one after 15 overs. He played an 51 run knock of 56 deliveries and laced it with 9 boundaries.

Chahal trapped Morne Morkel (1) LBW as well, while Yadav got rid of Kagiso Rabada (1) with a wrong one, out LBW.

The rest was done by the Indian batsmen who made it look like a walk in the park as they sealed victory in just 20.3 overs to put another dent to South Africa's hopes of comprehensively winning the ODI series.

After electing to bowl first, the Men in Blue bundled out the hosts for a paltry total of 118 in the first innings as the spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav ran riot.

Fifteen minutes earlier umpires had extended play to give India a chance of finishing the match before the interval.

India dished out a strong performance in the second ODI to take a 2-0 lead in the six-match ODI series.

Middle School Shooting Was Accidental — LAPD
Castro said an emphasis at the school on long-term goals such as college and careers has improved student behavior, he said. The girl was arrested as a juvenile Thursday night on suspicion of negligently discharging a firearm on school grounds.

Goswami ended as the pick of the bowlers with four for 24, while Pandey bagged three for 23.

Debutant Khaya Zondo and JP Duminy (25) added 48 runs for the fifth wicket to do some fix work for the Proteas but once Zondo was removed by Chahal for 25, all wheels came off for the hosts. Overall, the match turns out to be the biggest disaster for the South African Team and they all out in the score of 118 runs. De Kock has been out of form for a while now, failing to cross 50 even once in eight innings against India across both Tests and ODIs.

Nevertheless, South African will need the second wicketkeeper in case of De Kock can not keep wickets and the replacement should be good enough to merit a place in the playing XI even as a batter.

Stand-in skipper Aiden Markram also failed to do much and was dismissed for mere 8 runs.

David Miller and JP Duminy played global cricket after a while and looked rusty.

All-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo added up to his handy 33-ball unbeaten 27, by picking the crucial wickets of Kohli and Rahane with his slower bouncers, but the damage was already done by then.
