Live score of the 3rd ODI between India and South Africa:

Aiden Markram, the captain of South Africa, won the coin toss and elected to field first. Rajat Patidar has received his first international cap and is now starting the innings for India alongside Sai Sudharsan. The opening batsmen were out early; nevertheless, they managed to provide India with a promising beginning. Sanju Samson and Tilak Varma faced some difficulties initially, but they managed to endure the challenging situation and increased the intensity of their performance for India. The duo amassed a total of 116 runs for the fourth wicket, which came to an end when Varma was dismissed after scoring 52 runs off 77 deliveries. Rinku Singh has subsequently displayed exceptional performance while Samson was in his 90s. Samson ultimately achieved his first century in international cricket and eventually went out after hitting 108 runs from 114 deliveries. Rinku is currently seeking to provide India with a substantial conclusion.

South Africa defeated India in the second ODI, thwarting the visitors’ attempt to secure a win during the IPL auction, which featured new records and significant purchases. The Indians soundly defeated the Proteas in the first game, but they mounted a strong comeback in the second. Consequently, as we approach the third ODI in this series, all teams have an equitable opportunity to emerge victorious.

This series has focused on the endeavours of youthful players striving to establish their presence. Arshdeep Singh made his debut in ODI cricket with an impressive performance, taking five wickets in the first game. Tony de Zorzi, the South African opener, displayed exceptional batting skills by scoring an undefeated 119 runs off 122 balls, ultimately leading South Africa to victory. Although the following ODI World Cup may not be of the utmost importance to most people, it is important to note that a T20 World Cup and a Champions Trophy will follow. All of these games would be regarded as tryouts for both tournaments, even if one of them adheres to a distinct structure.

Although the second One Day International (ODI) received less attention owing to the IPL auction, this will not be the case for the upcoming encounter. With the series at stake, there will be a significant increase in viewership for this game. The probability of India altering their roster remains minimal, as is typically the case. Although Rinku Singh was given the opportunity to make his ODI debut in the second match, there is a possibility that Rajat Patidar may be given a chance in the third match.
