Durban ODI: South Africa set India 281 in 49 overs
South African openers Quinton de Kock and Hashim Alma scored centuries as the hosts set India 281 to win in 49 overs in the second ODI at Kingsmead, Durban
The young de Kock got his second ton of the series, smashing 106 from 118 balls with the aid of 9 fours while Amla made exactly a hundred off 117 balls as the openers added 194 for the opening wicket.
India fought back well after breaking the opening stand, with Mohammed Shami grabbing three important wickets again, that of Amla, David Miller (0) and Jacques Kallis (10), but a 20-run last over bowled by Umesh Yadav lifted the Proteas to 280 for 6.
Earlier, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni elected to bowl after winning the toss. An injured Yuvraj Singh made way for Ajinkya Rahane while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohit Sharma were replaced by Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav.
South Africa captain AB de Villiers made one change too - Vernon Philander coming in for Wayne Parnell.
A wet outfield delayed the start of the game which was reduced to 49 overs.
