South Africa vs India: In the 1st ODI, Venkatesh Iyer got his debut cap for team India and in his first match itself he displayed a promising performance. The young all-rounder inflicted a run out on Aiden Markram and pushed them onto the back foot.
Venkatesh Iyer was fielding at mid-off and Markram seemed to take him for granted and paid the price. In the 18th over of the South African innings, Markram went for a single on Ashwin's bowling and Venkatesh Iyer, who was fielding at mid-off showed agility and swiftness and aimed the ball straight at the stumps.
However, this wasn't the first time Iyer connected a direct hit on the stumps. On the last delivery of the 14th over, Temba Bavuma struck a similar shot but he denied his partner Quinton de Kock for the single. This could have resulted in a definite runout if Bavuma had made the call otherwise.
While talking about the match, South Africa have posted 296/4 in the 50 overs after opting to abt first. SA batters Rassie van der Dussen (129*) and Temba Bavuma (110) powered their team to a good total in the 1st ODI. India would expect Venkatesh Iyer to perform with the bat after a good fielding performance.
