India held on to seal an epic 1 run victory against South Africa in the 1st of 3 ODIS in Jaipur. South Africa's stand in captain Jacques Kallis won the toss and elected to field 1st and despite a superb start with the bat the hosts, India, kept losing wickets at regular intervals.
Kallis himself managed to pick up 3 wickets with his medium pace.
Suresh Raina however scored a brilliant half century which enabled India to post a very handy total of 298 from their 50 overs.
India appeared to be well on top as they removed Bootsman and Herchelle Gibbs early on in South Africa's reply.
Jacques Kallis did make a defiant 89 but once he was dismissed India appeared to be in control again, however a flurry of 6's from tailenders Dale Steyn and Wayne Parnell took the tourists to the brink of an upset before they lost by 1 run.
