South Africa bowl in third ODI against India

South Africa bowl in third ODI against India

India captain Kohli, though, has been in consistently outstanding form on tour in South Africa, and his century was his second in the three one-day games against South Africa and his third in his last four ODIs.

For South Africa, Duminy took two wickets while Rabada, Morris, Tahir and Andile Phehlukwayo chipped in with one wicket apiece.

This situation does not aid South Africa's chances of getting back into a series India now lead 2-0 heading into the third match at Newlands tomorrow.

Left-arm spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav then ran through the South African batting line-up with four wickets each as the hosts folded up for 179 runs in 40 overs.

Residents described the sound of several explosions at the complex on social media, but police have not addressed those reports. In Michigan , 25-year-old Detroit Police Officer Glenn Doss Jr. was shot responding to a domestic violence call January 24.


Stand-in skipper Aiden Markram won the toss on Wednesday and said he's hoping the "ball will come quicker onto the bat in the evening".

India have taken an unprecedented 3-0 lead in the series, which moves to Johannesburg for the fourth ODI on Saturday. However, if the hosts wanted some inspiration to make a comeback in the series, then their record at Newlands will cheer them up as they played 33 ODI games and managed to win 28 matches at the venue and their win percentage is nearly 85.

Kohli also broke another record by Ganguly - that of the highest individual score by an Indian batsman against the Proteas in South Africa. 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.

India now have a 3-0 lead in the six-match series and Yadav and Chahal have made telling contributions in each of them. MS Dhoni first Indian wicketkeeper to effect 400 dismissals in ODIs Here in Newlands too, it was the same story. Kohli now boasts of 12 hundreds as skipper but in only 43 innings.

Whether they had gotten into a fight or if she realized their text messages had been discovered is unclear. In a text sent on October 20, 2016, Strzok called the Republican presidential nominee a 'f***ing idiot'.


2 - Kohli became only the second Indian captain after Kapil Dev to score a 150 in an ODI outside India. Oddly enough, quite a few South African bowlers used off cutters as the ball seemed to stop before coming onto the bat, indicating that the wrist-spinners will once come into play. If a batsman's technique is bad, he can put some runs on the board once in a while, but he will not be able to do that consistently which is exactly true in Kohli's case. The previous best was Ricky Ponting's tally of 283 runs in 2001-02.

Quinton de Kock, who got injured in the second ODI before being ruled out of the remainder of the ODI series and three Twenty20s, is replaced by debutant Heinrich Klaasen.

"Rohit is timing the ball in a fantastic manner". Ganguly scored 11 centuries while leading the team in 146 ODI's.

Kohli (on 0*) survived an early lbw shout off Kagiso Rabada (1-54) in the third over.

The SPD is keen to deepen European Union integration, so the fact that it will hold the finance and foreign ministries will help. She also noted that many conservatives will not be happy with the SPD taking over the finance ministry.


Earlier, Kohli slammed his 34th ODI ton to help India post a competitive total even as the visitors' untested middle order failed to click. He combined with Bhuvneshwar Kumar for an unbeaten 67-run partnership off 44 balls.
