Stats Highlights: South Africa vs India, 2nd ODI - INDIA Tour SA

The 194-run partnership between Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla is South Africa’s highest for the opening wicket at home. The pair bested the previous record stand of 190 between Gary Kirsten and Mike Rindel against Pakistan at Johannesburg in 1995. (Also Read: Report: South Africa vs India, 2nd ODI - INDIA Tour SA
The above partnership is South Africa’s second-highest opening partnership in all ODIs – home and away. The highest remains the 235-run stand between Gary Kirsten and Herschelle Gibbs, also against India at Kochi in 2000.
Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla provided only the second instance of an opening pair putting on 150-plus partnerships in successive matches (these two added 152 in the first match at Johannesburg). Pakistan’s Taufeeq Umar and Salim Elahi added 159 and 154 against Zimbabwe in 2002.
Incidentally, the de Kock-Amla pair is the fifth duo to put on successive 150-plus partnerships for any wicket in ODIs, after Asanka Gurusinha and Aravinda de Silva (1996), Saeed Anwar and Inzamam-ul-Haq (2001), Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan (2002), and Taufeeq Umar and Salim Elahi (2002).
Quinton de Kock has now scored three hundreds without recording a score between 50 and 99. He is only the third batsman to do so, after England’s Dennis Amiss and Pakistan’s Kamran Akmal.
Quinton de Kock became the sixth South African batsman to score centuries in back-to-back matches, joining the ranks of Herschelle Gibbs, Jacques Kallis, Graeme Smith, AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla. AB de Villiers has done so on five occasions, whereas Gibbs has two such instances against his name. Both Gibbs and de Villiers extended their streak to three consecutive innings on one occasion each.
Quinton de Kock is only the fifth batsman to score three tons before turning 21. Ireland’s Paul Stirling holds the record with four centuries before the age of 21. Bangladesh’s Shahriar Nafees and Tamim Iqbal, and Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad also scored three tons before the age of 21.
Hashim Amla, while on 59, completed his 4,000 runs in one-day internationals. By taking just 81 innings, Amla became the fastest to accomplish this feat, taking the record from Viv Richards who did so in 88 innings. Incidentally, Amla was also the quickest to 2,000 runs (41 innings) and 3,000 runs (57 innings).
Amla is also the quickest to 12 ODI hundreds, breaking Virat Kohli’s record, who took 83 innings to do so.
The last time India suffered defeat by 100-plus runs in back-to-back matches was in 2006 – also against South Africa. India had then lost by 157 runs at Durban and followed it up with an 106-run loss at Cape Town.
Quinton de Kock became the first wicketkeeper to score a 100 and effect four dismissals in a match against India.
Quinton de Kock also became only the second South African wicketkeeper to perform the all-round feat of scoring a ton and effecting four dismissals in the same match, after AB de Villiers who made 101* and took four catches against Zimbabwe at Potchefstroom in 2010.
India have now suffered huge defeats in three consecutive matches at Durban – by 157 runs in 2006, by 135 runs in 2011 and by 134 runs in 2013.
India have never beaten South Africa in a one-day international at Durban. Out of seven ODIs they have played here, India have lost six, while one match did not produce any result.
