Kohli hits 34th ODI Hundred, makes it 3-0 for India

India won the toss and elected to bat first

After crushing South Africa by nine wickets in the second ODI at SuperSport Park in Centurion, Virat Kohli's Team India will look to take an unprecedented 3-0 lead when they face a depleted South African team in the third ODI at Newlands here on Wednesday.

"It's do or die for us now".

Kuldeep Yadav has formed a magnificent combination with Yuzvendra Chahal in the first three games of the one-day series. Dhawan accelerated after reaching his mark, and scored 26 runs off next 21 balls he faced. Its wake up call for South Africa and it seem to be having some trouble. Needing to mount the highest successful run chase at the ground, South Africa fell woefully short. As a batting unit we've got to make sure we are better. I want to play this kind of cricket even when I am 34-35.

But first De Villiers will have to get back on the park. I think AB de Villiers being AB de Villiers is a very risky player. "When AB talks you listen because it's always helpful".

De Villiers missed the first three games with a finger injury but has been declared fit and available to play. He brings a lot on and off the field - the calmness and experience. In reply South Africa displayed another lacklustre performance with no batsman standing up to the challenge. So, they are waiting for the ball to bounce off the pitch to see which way it is going to turn.

Only former Australian captain, Ricky Ponting and South African AB de Villiers have more centuries to their names as captains with 22 and 13 respectively. "The AB de Villiers factor, let's put it that way". The wrist-spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav were once again lethal with the ball as they picked eight wickets in between them to run through the Pakistani batting line-up. "Keep the runs flowing", said Sachin Tendulkar. When you are going for wickets you are bowling in areas that are uncomfortable for the batsmen and more often than not they end up defending. They are a seriously good one-day unit, a seriously good Test unit and T20 as well. What new ways will South Africa's batsmen find to get out to them?

As the staff of BCCI headquarters in Mumbai was bustling around to ensure the live telecast of their precious male cricket team, miles away, in the South African city of Kimberley, Mithali Raj was busy ensuring that her own team performs its heart out. There have been five pink ODIs to date and the Proteas have triumphed in every single one of them. But behind the wicket, he was constantly advising the bowlers, which became very beneficial for them later.
