- South Africa vs Ireland 3rd ODI Match – Dublin
- South African opener Janman Malan played a record-breaking ODI innings
- South Africa scored 346 runs for 4 wickets, it rained heavily for fours and sixes
In the third ODI between South Africa and Ireland in Dublin, runs were raining heavily. The South African batsmen, who came to bat first, vented their anger in this match after the humiliating defeat in the previous match. Especially both the openers of the team. Quinton de Kock played a blistering innings of 120 runs but his partner Janneman Malan crossed all limits and played a record-breaking innings. On the basis of these two, South Africa scored 346 runs losing 4 wickets.
After winning the toss, 25-year-old South African batsman David Malan batted brilliantly from the beginning. He completed his half-century in 66 balls and allowed Quinton de Kock to pick up the pace. Whereas after Quinton de Kock’s century, Malan also started increasing the pace of his innings and completed his second ODI century in 126 balls.
Malan played a strong innings
Quinton de Kock was dismissed in the 37th over after an innings of 120 runs and an opening partnership of 225 runs but Malan’s thrashing continued. Malan then managed to cross the 150-run mark in 155 balls and even after that he remained till the end. Batting from the first ball of the match till the last ball, he scored an unbeaten 177 runs in 169 balls which included 16 fours and 6 sixes.
AB de Villiers left behind
With this, Jaanman Malan surpassed the record innings of former South African great AB de Villiers. AB de Villiers scored 176 runs in an ODI against Bangladesh in 2017. Now Malan has left him behind to become the fourth highest run-scorer in an ODI innings for South Africa.
These are the top-5 players of South Africa who played the best innings in ODIs
- Gary Kirsten – against UAE (1996, Rawalpindi) – 188 not out
- Faf du Plessis – Against Sri Lanka (2017, Cape Town) – 185 runs
- Quinton de Kock – Against Australia (2016, Centurion) – 178 runs
- Jaaneman Malan – Against Ireland (2021, Dublin) – 177 not out
- AB de Villiers – Against Bangladesh (2017, Paarl) – 176 runs
With this, Jaanman Malan has now become the second South African player after Gary Kirsten to play the biggest ODI innings on foreign soil. Only Kirsten (in Rawalpindi) and Jaanman Malan (in Dublin) among these top-5 players have accomplished these historic innings on foreign pitches.
