That's it from us in our coverage of the first one-dayer between South Africa and India at the Boland Park in Paarl, which will also host the second game of the series that is a must-win from the Indian perspective. Team India had begun their tour on a solid note with a win at Centurion, but have remained winless since as they have lost three games (across formats) in a row now. They will hope to bounce back in the second game on Friday to take the series to a decider. South Africa, meanwhile, can afford to pat themselves on their backs for the way they conducted themselves today, and will enter the second game as the favourites now.

22:23 (IST)

Rassie van der Dussen: I knew I had to go to my sweeps and reverse sweeps early on. Soon as we got a partnership going on a good batting wicket, we got some momentum going. As a batter you stand up and make it play. Two high-pressure run-chases in the Tests, as a unit we were quite confident coming into this game. All in all, good day for the batting. When Shikhar and Virat were in, they were staying in the game and putting us under pressure. Soon as we got those two wickets, we knew if we keep striking, we’ll put them under pressure. Hopefully we can be more clinical with the ball in the coming games. It’s been a long journey with this team and a world-class coaching staff, and we’ve put in a lot of hard work. It’s the character of our coach, and Temba and Dean in the Tests. We’re starting to see some results now.

22:22 (IST)

Rassie van der Dussen is the Player of the Match for his unbeaten 129!

22:19 (IST)

Temba Bavuma, South Africa captain: I think we played something close to the perfect game, and we can take a lot of confidence from this. Not for me really, I struggled to consistently hit the ball from the middle, but Rassie was batting as if on a different wicket. That partnership was quite key for us. Another good debut for Blank. He’s obviously growing from strength to strength as a cricketer. Aiden is always an option for us with the ball, especially the new ball, and he’s been doing the job fantastically so far. Andile was also good, and would obviously like to play a bigger role. It’s pleasing to see Andy putting in those kind of performances. Spinners have been great. Nice to have Quinny back, nice to see him smile. He’s a big player for me and for the team, and his experience helps us a lot.

22:18 (IST)

KL Rahul, India captain: It was a nice game. We love playing games like these. So much to learn. Couldn’t really get wickets in the middle, which has been a problem earlier as well. We were on par for the first 20-25 overs of the game, and thought we could chase it down easily, but the South Africans fought back. I don’t know if it really changed drastically. Virat and Shikhar said it was a good wicket to bat on. Unfortunately we couldn’t get the partnerships coming. When two people from the opposition get hundreds and bat so deep, they get to 300 more often than not. We needed someone to play an innings like that. The talk in the change room after the 50 overs was that we might have given away 15-20 runs extra. They did really well and continued to maintain pressure on the bowlers. Every game is important for us. Every game that we play for our country is something we take a lot of pride in. We haven’t played one-day cricket in mind, so great learning for us. We have the World Cup in mind. We will mistakes, but will learn from them and get better.

22:03 (IST)

After 50 overs,India 265/8 ( Shardul Thakur 50 , Jasprit Bumrah 14)

South Africa begin the one-dayers in style with a 33-run win, going 1-0 up in the three-match series! Lungi Ngidi bowls out the final over, conceding six from it. Shardul Thakur brings up his maiden ODI fifty with a single off the final delivery, scoring at a strike rate above 100 that will no doubt reinforce his credentials as a handy bat down the order. The ninth-wicket stand with Bumrah remains unbroken at 51, lending some semblance of respectability to the Indian innings after the visitors looked like they would get skittles for less than 220 at one stage.

21:56 (IST)

After 49 overs,India 259/8 ( Shardul Thakur 47 , Jasprit Bumrah 12)

Shamsi bowls out a tidy final over, conceding a single off each of the first five deliveries before Bumrah decides to block the last one. India need 38 from six balls.

21:53 (IST)

After 48 overs,India 254/8 ( Shardul Thakur 44 , Jasprit Bumrah 10)

Ngidi brought back. Single off each of the first two deliveries, with Bumrah chipping the ball over mid off off the second, before Thakur collects back-to-back boundaries off the next two balls before smashing the ball beyond the square leg fence for a six off the fifth, moving into the 40s in the process. Thakur keeps the strike with a single off the last ball. 17 from this over. India need 43 off 12.

21:48 (IST)

After 47 overs,India 237/8 ( Shardul Thakur 28 , Jasprit Bumrah 9)

Thakur collects a single off the first ball, with the ball beating both Bumrah’s bat as well as de Kock’s gloves to run away for a couple of byes. Bumrah narrowly escapes getting run out after a mix-up with Thakur in the third delivery. Thakur collects a brace off the fifth ball after a sweep towards fine leg, before collecting a single to keep the strike. Seven from the over. India need 60 from three overs.

21:44 (IST)

After 46 overs,India 230/8 ( Shardul Thakur 24 , Jasprit Bumrah 8)

Bumrah top-edges a short ball from Jansen towards the fine leg fence at the start of the over, collecting his first boundary in the process. Couple of singles come India’s way in the remaining deliveries. India might not chase the target down today, not from the position they find themselves in at the moment, but Thakur and Bumrah will hope to get past the 260-270-mark.

Preview: India take on South Africa in the 1st ODI at the Boland Park in Paarl.

India started off the tour on a positive note beating South Africa in their fortress Centurion in the first Test but then lost their way as the Proteas bounced back strongly to clinch the Test series 2-1.

Virat Kohli resigned as Test captain as well after the loss. He had earlier stepped down at the T20 captain before being removed as the ODI captain.

Rohit Sharma was named the new white-ball skipper. The ODI series against South Africa was supposed to be his first series in charge but he will miss out due to hamstring injury which has bothered him for a while. KL Rahul will lead the side while Jasprit Bumrah will be his deputy.

Both India and South Africa will look to build for the 2023 World Cup. India's white-ball transition will begin with the South Africa series where a nearly full strength squad will take part.

The focus will be on Kohli the batter as he takes the field as non captain for the first time in more than five years. Venkatesh Iyer will audition for the seam bowling all-rounders' spot in absence of Hardik Pandya who is dropped.

Shikhar Dhawan and Ruturaj Gaikwad will compete for the opening spot as KL Rahul has confirmed that he will open the batting in absence of Rohit Sharma.

Rahul indicated that the pitch at Boland Park might offer little bit of spin so India might go in with a three pacer-two spinner strategy with Venkatesh Iyer being the sixth bowling option.

India would look to improve their bowling as they have the third-worst bowling average since 2019 World Cup. Their Powerplay bowling needs vast improvement as well.

South Africa, on the other hand, will be looking to carry forward the momentum after the Test series win. Temba Bavuma is back to leading the ODI side after missing the last three with a thumb injury. Lungi Ngidi will lead the pace department while Tabraiz Shamsi will lead the spin department. Their batting is their main strength and they look a formidable unit.

Two strong teams looking to make a statement. We are in for a cracker in Paarl.
