Cape Town: After the convincing victory in the first two ODIs against South Africa, India will look to take a 3-0 lead and create history. Never before has India won against South Africa in an away bilateral ODI series.
Giving the injury-laden South African team, the win looks quite possible for Virat Kohli’s men when they play their third ODI of the six-match series.
In 1992-93 and 2010-11, India had won two ODIs in away bilateral series, but lost both by 2-3 and 2-5 margin respectively.
Reeling with injury issues, the South African team will miss the services of AB de Villiers, Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock.
The Indian team is riding high on success after winning the first two ODIs in Durban and Centurion by six and nine wickets respectively.
