Highlights of IND vs SA 1st ODI: Sanju Samson went 86 games unbeaten but India lost to South Africa in their first ODI at Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. Chasing the 250 target, India lost two points early as both Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill were eliminated in the first play of power. Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad also failed to impress. Shreyas Iyer made his intentions clear, breaking the ball into 33 50-balls, before dying shortly afterwards. Initially, Samson tried to go on, but picked up the pace after hitting the 50-run mark. Before that, the fifty-fifty unbeaten run of David Miller (75) and Heinrich Klaasen (74) helped South Africa post 249th for 4 of the 40 regulated rounds. The match was shortened to 40 innings on one side due to rain. India captain Shikhar Dhawan won the throw and chose to score first. (REFER)
