Mumbai, Oct 25: Social media was abuzz after South Africa notched up a mammoth 438/4 in 50 overs against hapless Team India in the fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) match at the Wankhede Stadium here on Sunday.
Faf du Plessis (133 retired hurt), AB de Villiers (119) and Quinton de Kock (109) lofted the visitors to a massive score.
Opener De Kock and du Plessis shared an 154-run stand for the second wicket. De Villiers then joined the party with du Plessis for a 164-run third-wicket partnership. (5th ODI: 3 'Ds' propel South Africa to 438/4 in decider)
All the Indian bowlers suffered under the Protean onslaught -- with Bhuvneshwar Kumar conceding the maximum 106 runs off 10 overs with a solitary wicket.
Here is what the people at Twitter said after the first innings concluded:

144/2 in the last 10 overs. It's down to the pitch and the quality of bowling/batting...even with the new ODI rules #IndvSA— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) October 25, 2015
