India complete crushing ODI win over S Africa

South Africa's injury list keeps growing as this time it's Quinton de Kock, who is ruled out of the remaining four ODIs and the T20I series against India.

Heinrich Klaasen, the only other specialist wicketkeeper in the squad, is nearly certain to make his ODI debut in Cape Town.

"Quinton suffered an extreme blow to the left wrist while batting in the second ODI on Sunday and felt severe pain and discomfort", team manager Mohammed Moosajee said in a Cricket South Africa statement. Further investigation revealed severe bony bruising to the area, with associated swelling around the tendon in the wrist.

"This type of injury subsequently rules him out". 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.

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. All in all, it was a complete performance from the Indians in the opener and come tomorrow, Mithali and her team would be eyeing an encore, which will hand them an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

Spinners, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have been fantastic in the first two ODIs, bagging 7 and 6 wickets respectively. They have particularly been very effective in denying South Africa the opportunity to build partnerships, especially upfront. While South Africa shot into a 2-0 lead, the visitors had to chop and change repeatedly to find a plausible combination throughout the prior series.

But no one in India was able to see team perform.

All of this places enormous pressure on South Africa's young stand-in captain Aiden Markram.

In a way, this could be a blessing in disguise for the hosts.

Electing to bat, left-handed batswoman Mandhana hit eight boundaries and a six in her 98-ball innings and shared a 99-run stand with skipper Mithali Raj (45) to help India post 213 for seven in their allotted 50 overs.

After losing the Test series against Proteas, men in blue made a great comeback in One-day series by winning the first two ODI's of this bilateral series. Television replays showed the ball to be turning past his leg-stump.
