KOLKATA: Janneman Malan's well-compiled 91 helped South Africa stroll to a seven-wicket victory in the second ODI against India at Paarl on Friday. With it, South Africa won the three match series with a match to spare, leaving India much to think about in a tour gone horribly wrong after the first Test win in Centurion. Defeat is part of the game, but this capitulation could trigger serious introspection after India let South Africa roll them over for back-to-back matches on a subcontinent type pitch. The batting failed to consolidate on good starts, the bowling has been unimaginative, snaring just seven wickets in two matches, and the fielding has been woefully under-par at times. It has been, in short, dismal.

At one point of time, South Africa were coasting at 212/1 in the 35th over before two wickets in two overs-Jasprit Bumrah bowling Malan before Yuzvendra Chahal brilliantly held on to Temba Bavuma's return catchslowed down the Proteas. By then, too much damage had been done and India simply did not have enough firepower to make anything out of that brief window of opportunity. Rassie van de Dussen and Aiden Markram added 74 runs for the fourth wicket.
