Virat Kohli said India have it in them to win a record fourth U19 World Cup

India will play 1st ODI against South Africa at Durban

"It suits my game plan".

The India skipper's purple patch with the bat continues.

Dhawan didn't let it go. His partner Dhawan cut an angry figure sitting in the Indian dressing room after being run out on 35. Kohli (112) soon followed the lead leaving the reigns to former captain MS Dhoni who then finished the match in style easily.

He thought he was on for a big one.

Earlier in the day, South Africa captain Faf du Plessis won the toss and made a decision to have a bat.

Even though he was the one who looked comfortable among the two openers, Amla missed one that came back in sharply after pitching and was adjudged leg-before-wicket off Bumrah.

There was a late-innings revival as du Plessis was part of stands of 74 with Chris Morris (37) and 56 with Andile Phehlukwayo (27 not out). Spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal triggered a mini-collapse in the middle-overs before the hosts, led by skipper Faf du Plessis, restored parity, "Bhuvi [Bhuvneshwar Kumar] and [Jasprit] Bumrah - we bank on them".

Their partnership was the highest for the third wicket in an ODI at the Durban venue, beating a two decade-old mark held by Pakistan, and ensured India eased to victory with wickets and overs to spare.

"It's easier [to bat second]", he said at the post-match presentation. I thought purely we didn't have runs.

He said of the Kohli-Rahane partnership: "We tried everything but Virat and Rahane played really well and had all the answers".

In the first ODI, the Indian captain scored 112 runs in 119 balls.

Claiming that the Indian core team for the limited over format is more or less sorted, Kohli said that ace batsman Ajinkya Rahane is a strong candidate for the No 4 position in the batting order - considering the pitch conditions in England.

He left the field twice to receive treatment. We have got such a balance in our side that we can bowl the opposition side. Du Plessis hit 11 fours and launched two sixes over midwicket, taking the home team out of trouble at 134-5 and to 269-8 in 50 overs.

"It's no secret, if Imran bowls well then he's our wicket-taker in the middle of the innings".
