Two runs to go, let's take lunch

From then on it was a Chahal-Kuldeep show as the spin twins claimed 8 wickets between them for just 42 runs.

Continuing his good form, Shikhar Dhawan scored an unbeaten half century.

Indian wrist-spinners, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, bundled up Faf du Plessis-less South Africa for mere 118 runs in 32.2 overs.

Fiji, NZ, Kenya and South Africa top pools at NZ Sevens
Australia's Ben O'Donnell shakes off the Kenya defense on day two of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Hamilton on 4th February, 2018.

The decision delayed India's inevitable nine-wicket victory by 40 minutes, emptied the stadium and left the commentators completely baffled. South Africa had a new captain as their star player, and skipper Du Plessis was sidelined because of injury.

Du Plessis tried all his resources at his disposal but unfortunately, nothing worked, and he accepted the fact that the Indians were clinical in their performance in the first ODI.

India completed a crushing nine-wicket win over South Africa in the second one-day global after their victory was bizarrely delayed by 40 minutes due to the scheduled lunch break. It is tough to envisage that de Kock will be dropped just yet, but Klaasen's inclusion ought to send him a signal of the team management's intent. They will be carrying the winning momentum into this second ODI, after a stunning victory at the Wanderers' Test and another easy win at Durban.

New York Mets ink 3B Todd Frazier to 2-year deal
The Mets will have a new look on both corners after signing aging free agent slugger Adrian Gonzalez to man first base in January. In his lone full season on the South Side, Frazier set a career high with 40 homers but slipped to.225/.302/.464/107 OPS+.

Wicketkeeper batsman, Quinton de Kock, has now also been ruled out of the limited overs series. The South African team was 50-60 runs back and the wickets were not taken at right intervals.

The Indian spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav combined to give only 98 runs in their 20 overs while taking five wickets.

Chahal trapped Morne Morkel (1) LBW as well, while Yadav got rid of Kagiso Rabada (1) with a wrong one, out LBW.

Some breast cancer treatments may impact heart function
Phil, who is now cancer-free, described one symptom as needing the toilet more frequently throughout the night. Men who are black, overweight, over 50 or have a family history of prostate cancer are most at risk.

However, commentator and Indian great Sunil Gavaskar argued that simple commonsense should have been applied. Earlier, he was left out for the 2019 World Cup preparation. Credit for the victory must go to Kohli, who despite being hit in the ribs by a rising delivery, batted with fluency to lead India to a win. "The Cricket South Africa medical team will aim to have him ready for the Test series against Australia starting next month", the release quoted South Africa team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee.
