MELBOURNE - The Proteas are under the cosh against India at the World Cup.

Captain AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla are both back in the pavilion.

Quinton de Kock was the first to go he was caught by Virat Kholi off Mohammed Shami's bowling for seven.

Amla was next to go after he top edged a Mohit Sharma delivery to Shame. However hope was not lost with de Villiers in next.

He and du Plessis settled the Protea's innings reaching their 50 partnership but a needless run out saw de Villiers depart for 30.

Du Plessis then lost his wicket with a poor shot going for 55.
