Mithali Raj led India beats South Africa by 88 runs, Match Highlights

Ayabonga Khaka (2-47) provided the initial breakthrough for South Africa when she had Raut caught but Mandhana and Mithali Raj (45) struck together for a decisive 99 run stand for the second wicket, Mandhana went on to complete a quickfire half-century as India were placed comfortably at 154 for one in the 36th over. "The Cricket South Africa medical team will aim to have him ready for the Test series against Australia starting next month", South Africa team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee was quoted as saying in a Cricket South Africa (CSA) release.

But he had a firm answer when asked whether South Africa still had a chance to win the six-game series.

South Africa's new captain Markram started at No.4 and three matches in, will find himself returning to his natural position at the top of the order, albeit not for a very happy reason.

The 3rd ODI between South Africa and India will be played at Newlands, Cape Town.

Meanwhile, the Indian team is relishing a fine role reversal from the Test series. Also the online live streaming of today's game can be caught at the official website of the channel which updates its spectators with the latest happenings.

South Africa's downfall in the first two ODIs can be credited to success of the Indian wrist spinners.

Dominant in the series-opener, the Indian team would now look to seal the issue when it takes on South Africa in the second One-day global of the three-match series at Kimberley on Wednesday.

India's playing XI looks settled and primed, which means there should be no changes unless fitness issues crop up. JP Duminy will have to move into the No. 3 spot, with Klaasen slotting in lower down, but then South Africa have to decide whether they'd prefer an extra batsman in Farhaan Behardien or an extra bowler in Andile Phehlukwayo. The average first-innings score in the last six ODIs is 311.

Now, India is all set to play its 3 ODI against South Africa on Wednesday, i.e. on February 7 at the Newlands Stadium, Cape Town at 4:30 PM (IST).

"We knew the wickets were going to be hard and dry".

Kagiso Rabada, one of the few players from the home side to have held his own with the team floundering, said that the multiple injuries could be a "blessing in disguise" in terms of widening the pool of players to choose from.

"In an ideal world, close to the flawless game, if a lot of people score runs, lot of people take wickets. We'll take either-or", he said. "Beause some of the foreign teams are not used to it, these spinners can create an element of doubt in the batsmen's mind". A small lapse in intensity now and South Africa will strike back with devastating force.
