Top 5 ODI performances by Indians against South Africa
- Match-winning innings and spells by Indian players against South Africa.
#2 Sunil Joshi (5/6), Nairobi 1999
One of the most remarkable spells bowled by an Indian spinner in recent times was that of Sunil Joshi against the mighty South Africans at Nairobi in 1999. South Africa, after winning the toss and choosing to bat, were bowled out for a paltry score of 117 largely due to the spell by left-handed spinner Sunil Joshi. He bowled 10 overs, out of which six were maidens. Joshi conceded just six runs and picked up five wickets.
His victims included Dippenaar, Gibbs, Cronje, Rhodes and Pollock. India went on to chase the target easily with 8 wickets in hand and 27 overs to spare. Joshi was adjudged the Man of the Match.
