Indin and South African cricketers have always shared a great friendship between each other. Still, there have been many situations during the matches where batsmen have really played the innings of their lives. Records have been broken as batsmen have come into their own during the India-South Africa matches.
Here are 5 best ODI innings in the India-South Africa contest:
1. Quinton de Kock 135
South African opener Quinton de Kock announced his arrival at the international arena during this three-match ODI series. Africa batted first in the match at Johannesburg and Amla (65) and De Kock (135) added 152 runs in 30 overs for Proteas.
De Kock was remarkably ruthless and ran through the Indian bowlers as he smashed 18 fours and 3 sixes in his innings. India could only manage to score 217, with Dhoni making 65 runs and lost the match by 147 runs.
The southpaw started a distinguished run with the bat, scoring 3 centuries in 3 ODIs in this series and the world knew that there was a flamboyant ODI opener in the town and his name was Quinton de Kock.
