The live coverage of India vs South Africa 3rd ODI Live Cricket Score: Team India have been flawless in the ODI series against South Africa. They have dominated injured and battered hosts in the first two ODIs with a comprehensive victory. New skipper Aiden Markram had a horrible start to his captaincy campaign in the second ODI which resulted in a loss of epic proportions.
Virat Kohli & Co are on the verge of creating history. If they beat the hosts in the third ODI, it will be the first time in the history of cricket that South Africa lost to India in three consecutive ODIs (on South African pitches). The Proteas have lost three players to injury till now. The batting lineup looks weak and inexperienced in the absence of AB de Villiers, Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock.
According to the reports, South African batsmen practised with five wrist-spinners in the nets ahead of the 3rd ODI in order to tackle Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. Heinrich Klaasen will be keeping wickets as he will play his debut match after De Kock suffered a wrist injury.
