The biggest test for India’s 50-over squad will be if they can shake off the demons from their first-up loss to a rampant South Africa side.
South Africa brought a different look to the game with their pink uniforms, but the class of their performance was the big talking point from game one, as they belted an under prepared Indian side by 141 runs.
Quinton de Kock, the baby face in baby pink, combined ferocity and cheek in his 135, and assisted by supporting fifties from Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers and JP Duminy, gave India 359 to chase.
On a pitch made to look placid by their bowlers, the India batsmen were on a hiding to nothing against a six-man pace attack that was at them from the start, when it took them 16 balls to even touch a Dale Steyn delivery.
During that first spell, Steyn caused India more trouble than the visiting bowlers did in the whole South African innings.
On their first day of international cricket on this trip, the India bowlers were given the best of conditions: they won the toss, bowled when the pitch was at its freshest, and avoided the dew.
However, with the exception of Mohammed Shami, they didn’t test the batsmen for long enough, and when they did their fielders were off their game.
