Apart from Jean-Paul Duminy, who scored 51 runs off 67 balls, the other South African batsmen were unable to cope with the Indian bowling. The hosts suffered an early hiccup when the experienced Hashim Amla was trapped leg before by Bumrah in the second over. Credit: (Photo by Shaun Roy/Gallo Images/Getty Images)

Duminy and Aiden Markram added 78 runs between them off around 15 overs before the latter was stumped off Yadav's bowling. Chahal dismissed Heinrich Klaasen and Duminy off consecutive overs a short while later to leave the hosts struggling at 95/4 in the 22nd over. That knocked the wind out of the South African batting and the hosts could never recover from there. Credit: (Photo by Shaun Roy/Gallo Images/Getty Images)

With the flow of runs drying up, David Miller and Khaya Zondo batted together for almost 11 overs but could only add 34 runs between them in that period. After Miller knicked one from Bumrah to Mahendra Singh Dhoni behind the stumps, the contest was as good as over. Earlier, Kohli slammed his 34th ODI ton to help India post a competitive total even as the visitors' untested middle order failed to click. Credit: (Photo by Shaun Roy/Gallo Images/Getty Images)
