   Won the toss

After Kohli won the toss and opted to bowl first, Indian wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav had already decided to win the game.
Chasing the small target, Dhawan and Kohli added an unbeaten 93 runs for the second wicket after India lost opener Rohit Sharma (15) in the fourth over.
Shikhar Dhawan (51 off 56 balls) and Virat Kohli (46 off 50 balls) smashed their way to the target in 20.3 overs.
“We want to play positive cricket and take the opposition on. We know their middle-order is inexperienced and we want to cash in on that,” said Kohli at the post-match presentation.

 

The third ODI will be played in Cape Town on Wednesday.
