Unlike the Test Series, India made a superb start to the Limited Overs leg with an easy 6-wicket victory over South Africa in Durban. A match that saw the captains from both sides score a hundred, it was Indian captain's hundred that ended in a winning cause.

Ably supported by India's new number four Ajinkya Rahane, the duo etched a monstrous partnership to make a target of 270 look easy after impressive bowling efforts by both the wrist spinners.

South Africa' batting struggles at the top order and inability to take wickets in the middle overs caused their downfall. There were a few takeaways from the first ODI at Durban, and here are five of them.
