2nd ODI: Ton-up Tony de Zorzi, bowlers power South Africa to series-levelling win over India | Cricket News


NEW DELHI: Young opener Tony de Zorzi struck a dazzling maiden ton after an all-round show from the bowlers as South Africa thrashed India by eight wickets at St George’s Park in a lop-sided encounter to level the three-match series 1-1 on Tuesday.
After a disappointing show with the bat in the series opener in Johannesburg, the Proteas batters bounced back in style, making a mockery of a modest 212 chase.
Ton-up de Zorzi led the chase from the front with a superb unbeaten 119 and shared a record 130-run opening stand with Reeza Hendricks (52). The 26-year-old then added another 76 runs with Rassie van der Dussen (36) to take the game completely away from India.
After a below-par outing with the bat, bowlers too had an off day defending 211 as India could only manage a couple of wickets.
With the Proteas convincingly winning the second game, the series goes to the decider. The final game of the ODI series will be played at Boland Park in Paarl on Sunday.
