India vs South Africa: 3rd ODI Match; South Africa Won the Match By 18 Runs


India vs South Africa: 3rd ODI Match : India vs South Africa: 3rd ODI Match. South Africa Won the Match By 18 Runs. South Africa lead by the series 2-1. Earlier in the chase, all the usual stuff happened. Shikhar Dhawan failed, Rohit continued his good form cracking an elegant fifty, Dhoni (who promoted himself to no. 4) hung around. One positive for India though was Kohli’s return to form. Unfortunate that he couldn’t see his team over the line.


For a second successive chase, Suresh Raina fell to an Imran Tahir googly to put South Africa firmly in control of the match. Looking to go straight over the bowler’s head, Raina ended up skying the shot and David Miller at long-off settled under it to take a simple catch.Viewers in the UK can watch India vs South Africa live in the morning on Sky Sports 2, with the live streaming online option on Watch Sky Sports and Sky Go.Viewers in South Africa can catch all the action on SuperSport, with the online live stream option on SuperSport Live.Watch the third one-day international live in the Middle East and North Africa on OSN Sports, while the match can be live streamed on OSN Play.

“We were down in the first innings, losing a lot of wickets on the trot, but we made a good comeback to win the match. Now we are riding high on confidence. The rest of the matches are very vital for us and if we win this match there will be a lot more confidence in the side.”

To do that, the batting and bowling needs to come together in the same match. Dhoni, himself, admitted India haven’t played up to their potential so far in this Freedom Series against South Africa, something even the away team’s camp feels.

Heavy security has been placed at the Rajkot stadium due to an ongoing quota stir in Gujarat, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state. Patidar quota activists in Gujarat are threatening to disrupt the Rajkot ODI.

“Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) will block the way of both the teams (of India and South Africa) to the stadium (on the match day) and we will also cordon the entire stadium,” protest leader Hardik Patel said, according to Cricbuzz India vs South Africa 3rd ODI Match live Streaming.
