Indian women's team thrashes hapless South Africa by 88 runs

As such, it remains to be seen what sort of wicket is presented to both teams on Wednesday, and whether South Africa will persist with this tactic. Cricket South Africa have tweeted regular updates about the match on their Twitter handle. After getting out of this series of Du Plessis, Inexperienced Aiden Makaram will lead South Africa in the 3rd ODI but it is too hard for him to manage his team and register their first win in this series.

De Kock is down with a left wrist injury which he sustained during the second one-dayer against India at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Sunday.

Cricket South Africa didn't name a replacement for him, and Heinrich Klaasen, who finished as the third highest run- getter in the domestic one-day tournament here, is expected to make his ODI debut.

The Indian women shone bright in all departments to comfortably outclass the host.

Opener Smriti Mandhana (84 off 98) scored a strokeful fifty while pace duo of Jhulan Goswami (4/24) and Shikha Pandey (3/23) shared seven wickets between them to emerge as the architects of India's victory. Virat Kohli-led India have hit back after a loss in the Test series and gained lead in six-match ODI series.

It was the first time when India gave a tough challenge to Proteas on their home ground, before this they have very poor records in South Africa's pitches.

Dane van Niekerk continued to fight a lone battle before the lower order batswomen - Marizanne Kapp (23) and Suné Luus (21 not out) - added some spice but leg-spinner Poonam Yadav (2/22) applied the brakes yet again as the hosts folded for 125 in 43.2 overs.

But their batswomen looked a pale shadow of themselves in front of the Indian attack. The Indian side is happy with his great performance in South Africa. Raj departed at 155 just after Mandhana's dismissal. Two balls later, Verma was caught by Khaka off Kapp.
