That brings us to the end of our coverage of the second one-dayer between South Africa and India at the Boland Park in Paarl, the Proteas outperforming KL Rahul and Co in all three departments for a second game running to clinch the series with a game to spare. What a time it is to be a South African cricket fan. After Elgar and Co's heroic turnaround in the Tests, the Bavuma-led ODI side has absolutely bossed the two games so far. India will have to go back to the drawing board and make some wholesale changes, but that can wait until the tour is over. Till then, their only focus will be on signing off with a victory in the third and final game that takes place in Cape Town two days from now.

For now, this is Amit signing off, wishing you all good night!

Quinton de Kock: Nice to get out there and score a couple of runs for once. Lack of game time always catches up. Nice to go out there and get some time. I was feeling good towards the end there. Me and Janneman genuinely have a good relationship up there. I understood that his role was to rotate the strike. We have a great understanding. I didn’t, I was very unsure. I just asked Aiden maybe there could be a chance. Perhaps lightning does strike twice. It’s changed my view on life and kids in general, so it’s been great.

Quinton de Kock (78, one stumping) is the Player of the Match!

Temba Bavuma, South Africa captain: Very happy. We wanted to win the series, and we weren’t really expecting to do it after two games. Great to have Quinny back and smiling in the team. Good to have Quinny back. I think as a team, we have a lot of self-belief and confidence in our ability. We fight for one another. We try and put in a real team effort. No one had much faith in us, and that gave us a lot of motivation. Keshav, Shamsi and Aiden have done a great job. We pride ourselves in our fast bowlers but to see the spinners get us home is something to see. I enjoy it. I’ve enjoyed it since domestic cricket. I see it as something to forget about myself and how I can inspire others in the team. Captaincy is something I enjoy. 3-0 sounds a lot better than 2-1. Have a couple of drinks and prepare for the clash on Sunday.

22:18 (IST)

KL Rahul, India captain: I think they are playing some really good cricket at home, and we are making mistakes in the middle. Obviously not good losing two games in a row. It has been a good learning. Not with individuals, but we’re trying to get better with things that we haven’t done well in the past. Middle order becomes crucial as we’re entering a big tournament. It’s upto us to get better and learn from our mistakes. It does feel like one of the wickets at home. I don’t think it was a pitch where they could have chased down 288 that easily. Credit to them. Lots of positive. The way Shikhar and Virat batted in the first game. Today the way Rishabh batted, the way he managed the first 20 balls and then took down the spinners. It will only give him a lot of confidence going forward. Shardul has been hitting the ball really well towards the end. Jasprit Bumrah obviously is phenomenal and is our standout bowler. Yuzi did well today. The energy has been great. Obviously it has been really hot for the last couple of days, and we haven’t played 50-over cricket for a while now. We don’t mean it as an excuse. It is challenging, but we love challenges. Too early to say now.

After 48.1 overs,South Africa 288/3 ( Aiden Markram 37 , Rassie van der Dussen 37)

Aiden Markram collects the winning run! South Africa thrash India by seven wickets to gain an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series, and it looks like the Indian team will be returning home from the tour empty-handed after all! SA 288/3
 

22:02 (IST)

After 48 overs,South Africa 287/3 ( Aiden Markram 36 , Rassie van der Dussen 37)

Six off Bhuvi’s eighth over, including a brace to van der Dussen off the third delivery, as the scores are level at the end of this over with two overs left.

21:59 (IST)

After 47 overs,South Africa 281/3 ( Aiden Markram 34 , Rassie van der Dussen 33)

Van der Dussen punches through the covers off the second ball, getting enough time to come back for a third as the equation comes down to less than 10 with more than three overs to spare. Leg bye added in the fourth delivery, followed by a single to RvDD off the fifth. Five off Bumrah’s final over as he signs off with excellent figures of 1/37. Credit to him and Chahal for giving the Indians a sliver of hope at a time when Malan and Bavuma were running away with the game. SA need another 7 off 18.

21:54 (IST)

After 46 overs,South Africa 276/3 ( Aiden Markram 34 , Rassie van der Dussen 29)

Bhuvneshwar continues. Van der Dussen, meanwhile, cops a painful blow near the abdomen after Markram ends up hitting his partner while looking to drive the ball down the ground. A much better over from Bhuvi with four coming off it, including a double to Markram in the penultimate delivery. SA need 12 from 24.

21:48 (IST)

After 45 overs,South Africa 272/3 ( Aiden Markram 31 , Rassie van der Dussen 28)

Bumrah returns for another burst, but perhaps it is a little too late for a rescue act now. Tidy stuff from the senior pacer as he gives away just two in his penultimate over, including a wide. SA need 16 off 30.

Preview: India vs South Africa, 2nd ODI at Paarl: Live Streaming and Live Telecast of Ind vs SA 2nd ODI Cricket Match

India take on South Africa in 2nd ODI at the Boland Park in Paarl. After the Test series loss, India didn't get off to a good start in the ODI series as they were beaten in the first ODI in Paarl. The second match will again take place at the same venue and India would be looking to bounce back hard and draw level.

India's bowlers started off well after South Africa opted to bat in the first ODI and reduced the Proteas to 68/3 in the 18th over. However, captain Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen got together and stitched a match-turning partnership of 204 to propel South Africa to 296. India's bowling in the middle overs was disappointing as they couldn't find a way to break the stand and the spinners were put under pressure as van der Dussen employed sweeps and reverse sweeps to unsettle them.

A much better middle overs performance is the need of the hour. Chasing the target, India got off to a decent start as Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul added 46 for the opening wicket. Dhawan played a good knock of 79 and then stitched a 92-run stand with Kohli (51). But then India lost their way and a middle-order collapse ensued.

The likes of Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Venkatesh Iyer would be looking to step up and make amends this time around.

South Africa, on the other hand, would be looking to seal another series. They have been riding high on confidence and it reflects in their body language as well. They would however expect more from the top order which failed in the last game. Markram's form has been a concern. He struggled in the Test series as well. He would be looking to get back to his best.

With India looking to bounce back and South Africa aiming to seal the series, we can expect a cracker.
