South Africa vs India: South Africa will be up against India in the third ODI of India’s tour of South Africa on 23rd January 2022 at the Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town.
South Africa, once again, put on a dominating performance in the second ODI to clinch the series. They were exceptional in both departments of the game. The Proteas restricted India to 287 runs and chased it down in 48 overs with seven wickets left. Quinton De Kock and Janneman Malan were the stars for them who scored half-centuries and stitched a fine opening partnership.
On the other hand, India hasn’t been at their best as they have already lost the series with a match remaining. It has been a poor start for KL Rahul’s captaincy career. After losing Dhawan and Kohli early on in the innings Rishabh Pant took on the attack to the bowlers to score a quickfire 85 with Rahul playing as an anchor. It was then followed by a cameo from Shardul to guide India to 287 runs which proved to be insufficient as all the Indian bowlers looked off colors except Jasprit Bumrah.
