Men in Blue look to extend winning streak in Cape Town ODI

India Vs South Africa

India Vs South Africa

Shattered by back-to-back injuries, South Africa opted to bowl first in the third One Day International (ODI) at Newlands in Cape Town on Wednesday, wherein the Host enjoy the winning percentage of 84.84.

However, India managed to post a formidable total of 303 for six in the allotted 50 overs, courtesy of a majestic 160-run knock by skipper Virat Kohli.

Kohli eventually found a willing partner in Bhuvneshwar Kumar (16 from 19) and the two put on 67 runs together to push India's score beyond 300. Meanwhile, Kohli also became the second opposition captain to score 150 runs in South Africa.

Kohli hit his second century of the series and the 34th ODI to take his tally to 318 runs in three matches, having only been dismissed once. Mandhana and captain Mithali Raj forged a strong partnership that kept the Indian innings steady till Raj (20) was caught and bowled by Sune Luus in the 24th over.

AB de Villiers has been added to South Africa's ODI squad for the remaining three matches against India, but a call on his availability for the pink match on Saturday at the Wanderers will only be taken at Friday's practice.

The record was previously held by Sourabh Ganguly who had scored 11 centuries while leading the Indian Cricket Team. Nevertheless, India totally dominated the second half of the innings with Mandhana reaching her century in the 40th over.

South Africa's failure to come to grips with the magic that spin twins Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are weaving hurt them again at Cape Town as they fell to a 124 run defeat against India.

However, Amla survived just two balls in the chase and with him, went most of South Africa's hopes. Lungi Ngidi and Heinrich Klaasen were handed their ODI debuts and came in for Morne Morkel and injured Quinton de Kock, respectively.

Apart from that, there is not much possibility of any other change in India's XI.

Kagiso Rabada has been a thorn in Rohit Sharma's flesh in this series. This in turn has allowed them to toss another ball up, slower if possible, despite getting hit off the previous. It proved more than enough to surpass the unbeaten 154 gathered against New Zealand in Mohali in 2016, but couldn't beat the marvelous 183 struck against Pakistan in Dhaka in 2012. The dismissal of Dhawan for 76 in the 24 over by J.P. Duminy brought Ajinkya Rahane to the crease, but he, too, was snapped up by the same bowler four overs later.

JP Duminy (2-60) then provided the breakthrough. It appeared it was a good decision on stand-in captain Markram's part. He now has 318 runs from three matches, which is also a new mark by an Indian against South Africa in a series. Hardik Pandya (14) was sent out to target the spinners, who were creating a bit of pressure backed up by some energised Proteas' fielding. Dhoni has a chance to complete his 10,000-odd runs in ODIs in this series in this series. Kedar Jadhav (1) played a nothing shot and edged behind off Phehlukwayo (1-42) as India were reduced to 236 for six in the 43rd over.
