Already struggling South Africa in India vs South Africa ODI faced a double blow after Quinton-de-Kock was ruled out of the series due to injury. Quinton-de-cock is out from this series due to his wrist injury which he picked during 2nd ODI at Centurion. Earlier, star batsman De-Villiers was ruled out of first three ODI matches.Skipper Du Plessis is ruled out for the remaining ODI’s and T20s and would require 2-4 weeks to recover and heal before he goes through fitness test. Quinton de cock has proved to be a effective asset against team India in past matches, but it seems this time, tough gets going for proteas in limited over upcoming matches, without key star playing in the team .

India is leading by 2-0 in the first two matches of this series, the next match of this series is going to be played tomorrow on 7th February at Capetown. Indian spinners Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav presented their tremendous bowling spell against Proteas in the Second One-Day and set a praising platform for their team. Top-order of African team failed miserably to score big innings score in the previous two matches, experienced J P Duminy and David Miller have also failed to give their significant addition to their team. Miller scored (0) in 2nd ODI and tangled in the spin of Kuldeep, while Duminy scored (25) runs and his wicket was claimed by Chahal.

Bilateral series between India and South Africa is considered as a tough competition because these are the top-two teams of World cricket and both the countries have great players. Last time in 2015-16, when South Africa Came to India to play the series of 5 One Day matches, they win it by 3-2. Now this time India is dominating Africa in their own home. So the Third ODI clash of this series is going to held tomorrow at 4:30 pm onwards, No replacement has been named which means Heinrich Klaasen will make his debut in the third ODI in Cape Town.
