South Africa beat India by 31 runs in the first one-day international at Boland Park in Paarl on Wednesday.

Captain Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen made centuries in a South African total of 296 for four after Bavuma won the toss and decided to bat on a slow, dry pitch.

India were on target during a 92-run second-wicket partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. But both batsmen were dismissed in successive overs.

India slumped from 138 for one in the 26th over to 214 for eight before Shardul Thakur made a hard-hit unbeaten 50 as India finished with 265 for eight.
