3rd ODI between India, South Africa to be played today
The third and final One Day International between India and South Africa will be played at Newlands Cricket Stadium in Cape Town today. The match will start at 2:00 PM IST.
Having lost the ongoing ODI series against South Africa, KL Rahul-led India would look to salvage some pride by winning the final match, and avoiding a whitewash. The third and final ODI will be a chance for Virat Kohli also to end the tour on a high as he would look to end his century drought.
In the first two ODIs, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul both showed glimpses of brilliance, but they failed to get it together as a unit, and the duo would hope to go all the way in the final match. Rishabh Pant impressed one and all with his 85-run knock in the second ODI, and the wicketkeeper would look to continue with his form.
Team India had suffered a 31-run loss in the first ODI while it suffered a seven-wicket loss in the second game of the three-match series.
