Proteas Pink Day ODI record under pressure

Proteas Pink Day ODI record under pressure

Surprisingly enough, Morris said that South Africa were not too far off from victory in the first three matches despite the scoreline saying something else.

South Africa have been well-beaten in all three games so far, and they are standing on the brink of losing the series to India, for the first time on home soil.

Virat Kohli produced a virtuoso hundred as India comfortably triumphed by 124 runs in the third one-day worldwide against South Africa at Newlands.

India are 3-0 up in the six-match series.

South Africa's brittle batting lineup, without injured stalwarts Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock, were stifled once more by the Indian spinners as Kuldeep Yadav, who took career-best figures (4-23 in 9 overs), and Yuzvendra Chahal (4-46 in 9 overs) strangled their innings. The win will also cement India's position on top of the ICC ODI team rankings. They missed the services of Mignon du Preez who is likely to return for the final tie.

Virat Kohli has become the first Indian cricketer to score 100 or more runs by running between the wickets in an ODI.

Both Chahal and Kuldeep have stated that their effectiveness stems from having received a univocal brief to attack at all times.

However, Cricket South Africa (CSA) will acccess de Villiers' fitness on Friday afternoon - 24 hours before the game - before taking a call on his availability for the match. One of David Miller or Khaya Zondo will make way for him in the playing XI.

Today resulted in yet another resounding ODI win for India against an out-of-sorts South Africa. As Kohli said, this kind of spin dominance in tandem has perhaps never been seen in South Africa before. De Villiers has a handsome record on Pink Days. "It's really good. My first pink day, we saw I got some runs, won the game". The pair put on 140 runs at almost a run a ball and it was obviously that South Africa would have a lot to do if they were ever to be contenders in this match. That day Rohit Sharma had struggled against the likes of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, scoring just 18 off 43 balls. South Africa are huge ambassadors of spreading awareness of health related causes in sport. That is certainly something that lifts the team even more. They are looking to whitewash this series as they lost the test series earlier this year. India have an average record at this ground.

India are expected to stick with an unchanged side after winning comprehensively in Durban, Centurion and Cape Town.
