Here's a look at the 5 takeaways from the first ODI encounter between India and South Africa from Kingsmead.

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.
