South Afri ca defeated India by 9 runs in 1st ODI in Lucknow with the help of brilliant ba tting performance from Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller. Lungi Ngidi and Kagiso Rabada looked very dangerous with the ball for Proteas in 2nd innings while Keshav Maharaj was pretty economical as well. In a rain curtailed game, India winning the toss asked South Africa to bat first as they posted a total 249 runs in 40 overs. Among Indian bowlers Shardul Thakur and Kuldeep Yadav looked very impressive while debutant Ravi Bishnoi conceded 69 runs off 8 overs and made life tough for the Indian team.
India started off the run-chase very poorly by scoring just 18 runs for loss of 2 wickets in powerplay as the top order Indian batters like Dhawan, Gill fell for a single digit score, while Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan also were struggling to score runs, the efforts of their middle order batters like Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson weren't enough for them to achieve their desired target. Shreyas Iyer's quick-fire fifty and Sanju Samson's approach of taking the game more deeper kept the hopes of Indian team alive, but in the end unfortunately required run-rate became too much for this batting pair despite a supporting knock from Shardul Thakur.
