Shikhar Dhawan comments on India's poor fielding and excessive runs conceded in the first ODI against South Africa


India vs South Africa 1st ODI: We gave away too many runs, fielding too wasn't great, says Shikhar Dhawan

LUCKNOW: India chief Shikhar Dhawan conceded that his group spilled such a large number of runs in the passing overs and handled inadequately, prompting the nine-run rout to South Africa in the downpour hit first ODI on Thursday.

Selecting to bowl in the downpour diminished 40-over-a-side game, India had decreased South Africa to 110 for 4 in 22.4 overs yet David Mill operator and Heinrich Klaasen controlled the guests to 249 for 4.

While the Indian bowlers yielded 54 runs in the last five overs, the hosts were likewise at real fault for dropping upwards of four gets in the outfield.

"I thought 250 was an excessive number of runs. We offered such a large number of runs on a wicket that swung and turned, the handling wasn't perfect, we released a couple of runs yet this was a decent opportunity for growth for us," Dhawan said in the post-match show.

South Africa captain Temba Bavuma said his bowlers lost a piece in the center overs with Sanju Samson (86 not out) going extraordinary firearms but rather he was glad that they figured out how to hold their nerves eventually.

"A decent battle toward the end, clearly Sanju pushed us toward the end, however the young men stood firm and took us to the success," he said.

"Bowling forthright was great, in the initial 15 overs by KG and Parnell. I thought we got lost in the center overs, offered very many runs, however toward the end, the outcome did go as we would prefer and I'm content with that."

Discussing his side's batting, Bavuma said: "We lost several wickets in the center overs, myself and Aiden (Markram), yet the young men hunkered down.

"Mill operator and Klaasen played emphatically, stung together an organization and took us to a decent score."
