India vs South Africa Live Score 3rd ODI, Newlands
IND 283 all out in 49.2 overs OUT! Pretorious seals the deal with the wicket of Chahal at the end. The seamer bowled a back of the length delivery, which Chahal only top-edged to Miller standing at cover. India will have to head back home with an embarrasing 0-3 series loss after losing the Test series 2-1. Unfortunately, that was India's back-to-back fourth loss in all formats.
IND 282/9 after 49 overs With Chahar gone, Indian tailenders are lacking the firepower to bring the match home. Phehlukwayo picks the wicket of Bumrah meanwhile to bring South Africa furhter in the game. India need 6 off the last over while South Africa need a wicket for a whitewash.
IND 280/8 after 48 overs OUT! Chahar falls at the beginning of the 48th over. Ngidi delivers the blow as Chahar fails to clear the fences by miles despite a wild swing of bat. It's now upto Bumrah and newly-in Yuzvendra Chahal to save India blushes.
IND 278/7 after 47 overs Chahar turns sensible with India now at front for win; is smartly dealing with 1s and 2s against Magala. Meanwhile Bumrah joins the party with a boundary to end the over. 11 runs off it. India now require 10 runs off 18 balls to win.
IND 267/7 after 46 overs What a fight back from Chahar! The tailender fires back-to-back boundaries in the over to shift the odds heavily in favour of India. With 14 runs off the over, India now need 21 runs off 14 balls.
IND 253/7 after 45 overs A good comeback by Magala in the over after Chahar shot him for a boundary early. The pacer bowled four dots to keep the pressure on Indian tailenders.India now require 35 runs off the last 30 balls.
IND 247/7 after 44 overs Deepak Chahar has renewed hopes of India win with 16 runs in the 44th over bowled by Pretorious. Intrestingly, the last 10 deliveries, which is also duration of this stand, have fetched 25 runs; off which Bumrah has scored just 5 runs. India require 41 runs off 36 balls.
IND 156/4 after 31.4 overs OUT! There, we jinxed it. Kohli, who looked solid throughout his innings, falls to an unexpected bouncing delivery by Keshav Maharaj. The spinner bowled it short and quick, Kohli tries to jab it on the backfoot but the ball pops up with an uneven bounce and takes the leading edge of his bat and falls safely in the hand of Bavuma at cover. Suryakumar Yadav joins Iyer in the middle and they are the last recognised batting pair.
IND 152/3 after 30 overs Kohli and Iyer are slowly building a good partnership and bringing back India's chase on track. Don't want to jinx it but this could be the day when Kohli finally ends his century drought. He is not out at 65 currently.
IND 127/3 after 25 overs 50! Kohli takes a single to reach his fifty. Interesting celebration by the former Indian captain as he makes a cradle gesture for his baby. This was Kohli's 61st half century while chasing a target. His presence will be crucial if India want to win this match and of course newly-in Shreyas Iyer must stick in as well.
IND 118/3 after 23 overs DOUBLE BLOW! Phehlukwayo strikes twice in one over! The pacer first had Dhawan taken behind the stumps. The opener top-edged a delivery while trying a pull shot; allowing De Kock to collect an easy catch. Four deliveries later, Pant followed Dhawan back to pavilion as he played an irresponsible shot, slicing Phehlukwayo's last ball of the over straight to sweeper cover.
IND 50/1 after 10 overs India were off to a fine start with openers Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul until the latter departed got a thick outside edge to give an easy catch to Janneman Malan at the first slip during Ngidi's bowling. After Rahul's wicket at 9, Kohli joined Dhawan on the pitch and the duo drove India forward. Dhawan and Kohli are patiently playing the South African bowlers knowing how crucial the start of this innings is as they chase 288 runs.
And it is all up for South Africa as the visitors bundle SA for 287 runs in 49.5 overs courtesy of their quick wickets in the last overs. IND need 288 runs to win from 50 overs. India have comeback stringly in the last overs.
SA 228/5 after 40 overs South Africa suffered back to back jolts when Quinton de Kock and and van der Dussen departed in quick successions. First, it was Bumrah who removed the centurion de Kock and then Chahal sent Dussen to the pavilion. The dismissal of the two South African batsmen has come as a breather for the visitors who were in search of the wickets to stem the run flow.
SA 170/3 after 30 overs 100-run partnership has come up between Quinton de Kock and Van der Dussen and the duo is still going their merry way. 57 runs have come from de Kock's willow who is about to reach his century. India's decision to bowl after winning the toss seemingly looks to be backfiring as the visitors continue to search for the fourth wicket.
SA 103/3 after 20 overs Despite losing regular wickets, South African batters are keeping their scoreboard ticking. After Deepak Chahar got the prized scalp of Aiden Markram, SA batsman- de Kock and van der Dussen have rotated the strike well and have mantained a fine run-rate for South Africa. The Proteas wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock has smashsed a fifty. India are trying various bowling combinations but to no avail. The visitors' hunt for the fourth wicket continues.
> SA 53/2 after 10 overs India roped in Deepak Chahar and the decision has seemingly paid off as the swing bowler has named two wickets to his name already. While in the first dismissal Chahar foxed Janneman Malan in an outswinger who gave a feather touch of the bat and was caught by Pany behind the stumps. Bavuma, however, departed cheaply in a run-out. SA wicketkeeper batsman- Quinton de Kock looks in fine touch and looks to drive SA alongside Aiden Markram after two early wickets.
The 3rd ODI between India and South Africa at Newlands, Capetown is a dead-rubber contest as KL Rahul's India have already lost the ODI series. The visitors would aim for a win to salvage their pride and avoid a clean-sweep in the 50-over format series against the Proteas.
South Africa were clinical in both the games in Paarl where they won both the games by seven wickets. It remains to be seen if India can end the tour on a match-winning note.
