Proteas Pink Day ODI record under pressure

India won the toss and elected to bat first

This is the first time that the Indian team has consistently won three matches on the African turf and claimed the series.

In reply, the Proteas were bundled out for 175 as they suffered a rare loss in what is their favourite home venue in ODI cricket. However, with the spinners causing problems to the hosts, India have the mental advantage and will go all out on winning the rest of the games in the same comprehensive way. Thanks to Kohli's imperious consistency and the terrorising form of their wrist spinners, that lopsided record might just be about to change.

Skipper Virat Kohli scored his 34 Century in the One Day International format in Cape Town on Wednesday.

Kohli shared a 140-run partnership with Shikhar Dhawan (76) after Rohit Sharma fell early on, with the opener taking the aggressive role before being caught by Aiden Markram off JP Duminy's off-spin. It looks a good batting track.

Nolan won't run again in the 8th
He added, "The Iron Range and the eighth district are on the economic rebound, and our best days are still ahead". The 74-year-old Nolan barely defeated a Republican challenger in his two re-election bids in 2014 and 2016.

Kohli hit 160 not out in India's total of 303 but revealed that he was suffering from cramp during the final stretch of the knock. When queried about a complete wipe-out in the ODI series, Kohli said it is a far-fetched thing to think off with half of the games left but assured his side will put more pressure on the opposition in the upcoming games.

South Africa's failure to come to grips with the magic that spin twins Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are weaving hurt them again at Cape Town as they fell to a 124 run defeat against India. "We are 3-0 down in the series; what more pressure do you need?" The two spinners have taken a combined 21 wickets in the first three matches of the series.

India have taken an unassailable lead in the series, with Kuldeep and Chahal contributing handsomely.

That MS Dhoni has lost his edge with the bat over the last few years is well known. He becomes only 4th wicketkeeper to inflict these many dismissals. "I was pleased from that point of view that I was able to bat through because I was struggling with a bit of cramp around the 90s. Kohli's the big dog and the guy is scoring runs for them at the moment", Morris said at the pre-match press conference. AB De Villiers, Faf Du Plessis, and Quinton De Kock have been ruled out owing to their injuries. Between Shamsi and Tahir, Africa will go with Tahir. The right-handed batsman missed the line altogether against a straight Jasprit Bumrah delivery while trying to shuffle across the stumps. It was one of those special Dhoni stumpings once again, with the batsman not even given an opportunity to attempt a return back to the crease as MSD dislodged bails in no time.
