South Africa were off to a flying start during the run chase against India in the second ODI of the three-match series in Paarl. 

The Proteas were handed a target of 288 by India and the hosts began the proceedings quite well with the openers putting up a partnership of over 100 runs during the course. 

While Quinton de Kock showed his aggressive side, his opening partner Janneman Malan was steady and played in a cautious manner. 

Earlier, India rode on some fine batting from KL Rahul and Rishabh and a late surge from Shardul Thakur to put 287/6 in 50 overs on the board. 

At the time of writing, South Africa were 122/0 in 20 overs. The home side is presently leading the series 1-0 and a win in this encounter would give them an unassailable lead. India seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar had been the most expensive bowler so far after he gave away 40 runs in 4 overs that he bowled.
