With the series tied at 1-1, India and South Africa will square off against each other in the third ODI at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on October 11. After a shocking defeat in the first game, the hosts bounced back to level the three-match series on Sunday.
The Men in Blue crushed the Proteas by seven wickets on Sunday. Riding on a 161-run partnership between Ishan Kishan (93) and Shreyas Iyer (113*), India chased down 279 runs with 25 balls to spare. Sanju Samson remained unbetaen on 30 off 36 balls.
Despite a convincing win, the Men in Blue will be worried with their top-orders failing to get among the runs. The spotlight will be on the likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill to return to form, while the bowlers will hope to back the batters.
South Africa, on the other hand, will be worried with their skipper Temba Bavuma’s form with the bat. He was rested in the second game and will return to the playing XI in a bid to hit the strides ahead of the T20 World Cup, starting on October 16.
