Nothing has gone right for India against South Africa in the ongoing ODI series. And, it is not for the first time that India have floundered against the Proteas. Here is a look at 5 of India’s worst ODI performances against South Africa.

1. 2nd ODI, Durban 2006

After the bowlers had done a reasonable job in keeping South Africa under check, Jacques Kallis produced a tremendous innings of 119* to take the Proteas to a respectable 248. Then, it all came apart for India, as Shaun Pollock, Andre Nel and Kallis wreaked havoc with the ball. On a lively pitch, that had some pace, and aided seam movement, India’s batsmen were at 6s and 7s, and were bowled out for 91, handing the Proteas a 157 run victory, in a series that they would eventually romp to a 4-0 victory in.

After the high of the test series in which India matched South Africa blow for blow, the first ODI in 2011 was a dampener, to say the least. After an indisciplined bowling effort, which saw them let South Africa get away to 289, riding on a fantastic century from Hashim Amla, India produced a woeful batting effort, folding for 154. Only Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina offered some resistance, as India’s other batsmen were blown away on a lively pitch, by the accuracy of Lonwabo Tsotsobe, the bounce of Morne Morkel, and the nip of Wayne Parnell.
