14:48 (IST)

After 9 overs,South Africa 47/2 ( Quinton de Kock (W) 28 , Aiden Markram 9)

Chahar bowls over the wicket to De Kock, and is getting a fair amount of movement right now. De Kock clips the second ball through backward square leg for a single.

13:38 (IST)

Temba Bavuma, South Africa captain: We’ve got just one change. Dwaine comes in for Tabraiz Shamsi. Very important we keep our standard. The guys on the side understand what we want to do. We always want to play our best team, but we don’t want to play guys for the sake of playing. With the bat we’re going to have to be clinical, try and go through the powerplay with minimal damage. Anything over 300 is generally always quite competitive. We’ll try and get through the first hour and then see from there.

13:37 (IST)

KL Rahul, India captain: Looks like a nice wicket, felt a bit sticky. Will try to get some wickets early. We value each game. Boys are motivated as well. You can’t fault the passion and energy of the boys. We have forgotten what has happened in the first two games. We are trying to work on a few things. Good opportunity for us to go out there. There are a few changes. Four changes: Suryakumar Yadav, Jayant Yadav, Prasidh Krishna and one more guy come in.

13:10 (IST)

Quinton made it easy for me

South Africa opener Janneman Malan scored a match-winning 91, forging valuable partnerships with wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock and skipper Temba Bavuma along the way that helped setup the seven-wicket victory in the second ODI. Malan credited de Kock’s fearless approach from Ball One that helped him settle down at the crease and accumulate runs at a steady pace.

13:00 (IST)

“Two matches running against South Africa then, this strategy has come unstuck. In the first ODI, Dhawan-Rahul got a start and Kohli built on it. The chase faltered when they got out because the unreliable middle-order couldn’t finish the job. Batting first in the second ODI, they gave a start again despite Kohli’s duck. Neither of the top three batsmen batted deep enough to make a lasting impact though.”

In his analysis of Team India’s defeats in the first two ODIs, Chetan Narula delves deeper into the batting performances and where the KL Rahul-led team got it wrong.

3rd ODI preview: 

Indian team’s strategy is expected to undergo a paradigm shift with some players getting a subtle yet stern message to lift their games as they face an embarrassing possibility of a clean sweep against South Africa in the third ODI, here on Sunday.

India’s strategy looked completely out of sync with modern-day white ball game as the batters failed to keep the momentum in the middle overs and more importantly the bowlers, save Jasprit Bumrah, looked club class and without ideas of getting breakthroughs.

Ravichandran Ashwin and especially Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the two senior-most bowlers looked far from threatening and the young Proteas batters like Rassie van der Dussen, Janneman Malan along with seniors like Quinton de Kock have feasted on the pedestrian stuff dished out by them.

With the two having flopped completely, it needs to be seen whether Rahul Dravid, the man who is currently calling all the shots as far as tactics is concerned, takes a dim view and at least try out Jayant Yadav and Deepak Chahar in the next game which would lend some freshness to the attack.

The two Iyers — Shreyas in batting and Venkatesh as an all-rounder haven’t yet set the stage on fire and the main problem has been their inability to force the pace in the middle overs.

England became a solid ODI outfit by scoring consistently in the middle overs and this young South African team has also followed that template in the series which is missing in the Indian game.

In all, massive improvement is required in order to be competitive.

12:30 (IST)

Welcome to our LIVE coverage of the third ODI between South Africa and India. It’s a dead rubber at Cape Town, but for India, there’s still a lot to work upon. Lack of wickets in early and middle overs combined with middle-order issues resulted in a series loss for India and they will hope to find quick solutions to avoid a series sweep.

 

India vs South Africa, Live Cricket Score, 3rd ODI Today’s Match Updates: Shreyas Iyer brought into the attack after the drinks interval. Van der Dussen collects a single off the first ball, before De Kock drives through the covers to bring up the three-figure mark with a double off the third delivery, taking 108 balls to bring up his 17th ODI hundred — his sixth against the Indians. Gets off strike with a single off the penultimate ball. Four from the over.

3rd ODI preview: India take on South Africa in the 3rd ODI at Newlands, Cape Town.

In recent times India have been impressive on away tours but they haven’t had a good outing in South Africa. They started off well with a win in the first Test at Centurion but then lost the next two matches to surrender the series. Then they lost the first two ODIs to lose the three-match series as well.

Having been thoroughly outclassed in both their ODIs, India will be looking to play for pride in the dead rubber on Sunday.

Their batting approach in both games has come under the scanner. Do they need to score quickly in the powerplays? In the 2nd ODI, they managed 287 but it was easily chased down by South Africa. Their bowling too has been listless. Apart from Jasprit Bumrah, no one has looked threatening.

KL Rahul took 79 balls for his 55. It was Rishabh Pant who brought some urgency to the proceedings with a breezy 71-ball 85. The middle order disappointed again with Shreyas Iyer and Venkatesh Iyer scoring 11 and 22, respectively. Kohli got out for a duck off an uncharacteristic erratic shot.

Heading into the third ODI, India will have to improve their batting drastically. Shardul has played a couple of very good innings to bring respectability to their totals but India can’t keep depending on him.

India is also expected to ring in changes for the Sunday’s game. Deepak Chahar might replace Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jayant Yadav may be brought in for R Ashwin. They could bring in Suryakumar Yadav in place of Shreyas Iyer.

South Africa, on the other hand, will look to continue with the momentum to achieve a series sweep.

They have been brilliant with the bat and their bowlers have done an impressive job. In the last match, every batsman contributed in the chase of 288. Malan – 91, De Kock 78, Bavuma – 35, Markram – 37 not out and Van der Dussen 37 not out.

With confidence in their arsenal, South Africa start off as favourites.

Here’s all you need to know about the India vs South Africa 3rd ODI.

The second ODI between India and South Africa will take place on 23 January 2022.

What is the venue for the South Africa-India match?
