Virtuoso Kohli hundred leads India to victory in South Africa

Kohli said India wanted to post a good total and then challenge an inexperienced South African batting line-up to chase a target.

India leads the ODI series 2-0 and with an impressive 303 runs on the board the team will look forward to take it to 3-0.

PREVIEW: India will have their sights set on an unprecedented 3-0 lead when they take on a South African team, which has quite literally fallen apart due to injury blows, in the third ODI of the six-match series on Wednesday. Duminy would also go on to get Ajinkya Rahane to end with 2 for 60 in his full quota of ten overs. Poonam wrapped up the 178-run win when she pinned Ntozakhe lbw and skittled South Africa in 30.5 overs.

At last he found great company in Bhuvneshwar Kumar (16) and added an unbeaten 67 for the seventh wicket with him.

Cape Town: Aiden Markram has won the toss and South Africa have elected to bowl in the third ODI against India at Newlands in Cape Town on Wednesday. The penultimate ball of the innings was rocketed over midwicket when it wasn't even that short a delivery. Captain Mithali Raj was also dismissed for 20, but Mandhana sustained India's momentum and brought up a century off 116 balls.

Duminy opted to review the decision, but it didn't save him as replays showed that the ball was pitching in line and going on to hit leg stump. Dhawan was out against the run of play after stepping out to Duminy for Markram to pull off a sharp catch at midwicket.

In their chase, South Africa lost Hashim Amla in the second over to Jasprit Bumrah and after that they never really recovered.

India cannot lose the series from here, at most the series can end in a draw. Kuldeep beat Markram all ends up with a wrong 'un and Dhoni had the bails off in a flash.

But Bumrah's unerring accuracy has prevented South Africa from enjoying the luxury of having Amla around when the wrist spinners operate.

Interestingly, the first male cricketer to pick 200 ODI wickets, was also an Indian - Kapil Dev. If not for any drastic gulf that has been created in performance or skill of the two teams in the long off-season, India would be well aware that they won't get too many days as easy as they got on Monday. In pursuit of 303, South Africa folded for 124, of which opener Lizelle Lee made 73 at a strike-rate of almost 100. It turned out to be more than double that.

But Kohli's masterclass, the dominance of Chahal-Kuldeep duo and the absence of three of their leading batsmen - Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock - made it a lost cause for them.
