1. Bowlers unable to take wickets in the middle over

The first and biggest reason for India’s defeat was the failure of the bowlers in the middle over. At one time the South African team had lost 3 wickets for just 68 runs till the 18th over. After this, instead of tightening the screws, Team India gave South Africa a chance to score runs. Temba Bavuma stood holding one end and Rasi on the other hand put pressure on Team India while batting. In the middle overs, Shardul Thakur, Bhavuneshwar Kumar bowled directionlessly and the South African team reached 296 runs.

2. Middle Order Flop

Chasing the target, Team India got off to a good start. KL Rahul got out early but Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan took the team to 138 runs but as soon as these two players got out, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer were quickly dealt with. The middle over was a flop and Team India lost the match due to losing wickets at regular intervals.

Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli made a great partnership after the dismissal of KL Rahul. Both the batsmen added 92 runs in 102 balls for the second wicket. Dhawan and Kohli also hit half-centuries but Team India lost the wickets of these two batsmen within 3 wickets. First Dhawan got out and then Virat also took the path of the pavilion. This was the turning point of the match and South Africa won in the end.

4. No use of sixth bowler

Call it the captaincy of KL Rahul or the strategy of Rahul Dravid, Team India did not use the sixth bowler in the first ODI against South Africa. Venkatesh Iyer was debuted as the sixth bowler, who also bowls well but KL Rahul did not use him at all. Shardul Thakur was proving to be expensive but still Venkatesh Iyer was not handed the ball. This strategy of Team India also surprised many former cricketers.
