South Africa's paceman Andre Nel, who guided his team to a thumping win over India in the second one-day international, on Friday said the home side would have the better of India in the rest of the series and in the Test matches.

"If we maintain our pace bowling and keep to our game plans then we will have India on the ropes in every match," Nel said.

Nel gave a devastating performance on Wednesday when as a number eight batsman he scored 22 runs, aided by a six, and then went onto take four wickets for 13 runs in eight overs.

The boisterous paceman took the key wickets of Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

He said India boasted a number of talented players in Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag and Dhoni and they would be planning to keep these players under pressure in every game.

"All the players in the South African team have worked very hard and now we should just maintain our high standard.

"If we maintain our pressure then I think we will have the better of the Indian team," Nel said.
