India and South Africa lock horns with each other in the third one-day international on Sunday at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town. There is no denying that India have been completely outplayed in the series.

Be it batting or bowling, India lacked application and had a lot to be desired. They managed to score 287 runs in the last one-day international but could have scored a lot more.

Virat Kohli went for a duck, while KL Rahul looked scratchy for his 79-ball 55. Shikhar Dhawan (29 off 38) couldn’t replicate the performance he showcased in the first ODI.

Besides, Shreyas Iyer (11 off 14) and Venkatesh Iyer (22 off 33) also failed to convert the start into big scores. South Africa spinners led to India’s undoing as they picked 4 out of six Indian wickets.

South Africa, in reply, chased down the score in 48.1 overs. Quinton de Kock (78 off 66), and Janneman Malan (91 off 108) set the tone with an outstanding 132-run partnership for the opening wicket.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar looked completely out of sorts as he went for 67 runs in 8 overs without picking any wicket. The likes of Temba Bavuma (35 off 36), Aiden Markam (37 off 41), and Rassie van der Dussen (37 off 38) later made valuable contributions to help the team win the game with seven wickets in hand.

Unlike South African spinners, Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal failed to impress with the ball. Chahal only picked 1 one wicket for 47 runs, while Ashwin conceded 68 runs in 10 overs without picking a single wicket.

South Africa have managed to win both the ODIs of the three-match series. Ahead of the last one-day international, they would look to register a series whitewash. India, on the other hand, would be keen to salvage some pride. South Africa, nevertheless, will go into the encounter as favorites to win the competition.
