De Kock ruled out for remainder of limited overs series against India

While the selectors' initially said Ashwin and Jadeja were being rested, the chances of the finger-spinner's comeback were thwarted as Kuldeep and Chahal spun India to series wins over New Zealand, Australia and Sri Lanka at home towards the end of 2017 season.

So did the calm and composed Rahane who scored his fifth consecutive half-century in ODIs.

Indian spinners, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal were the biggest nightmares for South Africa yet again. Both India and South Africa had 120 points before the start of the series but Virat Kohli-captained side were ahead on decimal points. Heading into the ODI series it was all supposed to go their way.

In conclusion, South Africa will be keen to mix things up in the hope of countering the wrist-spin threat, and make an impression with the bat in the hurting absence of de Villiers and du Plessis.

Du Plessis and De Kock. India then chased the target in 20.3 overs with Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli scoring 51 and 46 respectively. However, the Fast Bowlers line up can down the opposite team and can lead them home.

Nevertheless, South African will need the second wicketkeeper in case of De Kock can not keep wickets and the replacement should be good enough to merit a place in the playing XI even as a batter.

Cricket South Africa announced on Monday that De Kock was in "severe pain and discomfort" after being struck on the left wrist while batting in the second match in Centurion on Sunday.

Chahal trapped Morne Morkel (1) LBW as well, while Yadav got rid of Kagiso Rabada (1) with a wrong one, out LBW.

However, he said the matter was for the grid girls and F1 to decide and not a matter to legislate on. "I wouldn't mind seeing grid boys next to grid girls ".


But, by all means, the next two wickets by Kuldeep totally derailed South Africa.

The other option for the hosts is to leave out David Miller, who has struggled against Yadav, accommodating both Behardien and Zondo instead.

The South African pace attack was blunted, and their spinners led by Tahir failed to exploit the pitch.

When that time came, India needed only two runs to win the game, but the umpires insisted that match had to be interrupted for lunch. Their most famous win here came against Pakistan in the 2003 ODI World Cup.
