Virat Kohli scored his 34th ODI ton to propel India past the 300-run mark

The third ODI at Cape town again resulted in another big win for #India.

South Africa will welcome back batsman AB de Villiers for the last three ODIs against India after he missed the first three games with a finger injury. Conceding 21 extras - 20 through wides and no-balls - did not help South Africa's cause.

Aiden Markram will continue to deputise as captain and Heinrich Klaasen will remain behind the stumps whether De Villiers plays or not.

De Villiers has returned to the squad for the remainder of the series after missing the opening three games due to injury.

The skipper has so far scored 318 runs in three matches.

Strictly speaking, the googly is not the only reason South Africa have been outspun. Duminy soon got rid of Rahane and then India's middle order stuttered, with Pandya, Dhoni and Jadhav all falling cheaply.

Kohli said the duo has been fearless in going after wickets even at the risk of conceding a few runs. "The hosts will have to do something extraordinary to come back in this series but the way India are playing, I see them winning this series comfortably", wrote the 67-year-old.

They can't believe their luck. A wicket every 15 balls.

Yet sympathy for Guardiola may be limited, in view of the fact that City have 15 players in their squad who each cost more than £25m.

It's not all about tweak, though.

"We're not panicking, hitting more balls - it's not panic station". They kept Amla and De Kock becalmed when they should have been trying to get their team ahead before the spinners arrived. Kohli who is in sublime form led from the front with a fine 160 not out as India amassed 303. "Throughout this series so far, we've lost wickets in clusters so we haven't given ourselves a chance".

There have been 12 ODI at Cape Town since 2006. "Centurion (bowled out for 118) we don't really need to talk about, I had to play my game". That is an average of 245.

India were obviously hopeful the spinners would do well for them but to this extent? South Africa now face series defeat and have never lost when playing in the pink jersey and will hope to replicate that in the fourth game.

Kagiso Rabada has been a thorn in Rohit Sharma's flesh in this series.

South Africa's effort to win the next game must begin with them winning the toss. They should come favourite with nip and movement giving them some early wickets in a chase. "They might get hit for 70-odd in the next game". Particularly if they bat second.

MS Dhoni, the name well marked as an excellence in Wicket keeping is nowhere gone, it has been a long tenure for Maahi being the wicketkeeper, with no single flaw, he has been proving himself right from the beginning. Figures 2013-2016 on 1pt level stakes.
