The ODI series opener between India and South Africa in Indore was delayed due to rain. But it was worth the wait as both sides engaged in a hotly contested affair. India's star spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who cleaned up Aiden Markram with a sensational delivery, had a few words for the Protean batter David Miller after beating him all ends up with a ripper.

Temba Bavuma's side made a decent start to their batting innings after the hosts won the toss and elected to bowl first in a rain-curtailed affair. The rain delay meant that each side had 40 overs to bat on a sluggish surface at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. Shardul Thakur opened the floodgates for India with two quick wickets of Janneman Malan and Temba Bavuma before Kuldeep Yadav sent Aiden Markram packing with an unplayable delivery.

David Miller, who has been in the form of his life since the turn of the year, hit Kuldeep for a boundary on the first ball of the 24th over, employing a sweep shot. The bowler dished out an absolute jaffa in response to the boundary and had a few things to say to Miller while he ran toward the non-striker's end to steal a couple of runs.

The returning left-arm spinner has had the South African batters on toast for most of the match, and he was in no mood to step back in the contest between bat and ball. The pitch is not the easiest to bat on as it is offering prodigious turn for the spinner along with some seam movement for the pacers.

South Africa will hope that the talismanic figure of David Miller could take them to a respectable total after the completion of their 40 overs. Quinton de Kock's dismissal for a well-made 48 could well prove to be the turning point in the innings. But the visitors have got enough firepower in their ranks to defend anything around 200-220 on a tricky surface.
