Proteas star De Kock ruled out of India series with wrist injury

India are set to retain the same playing eleven in the third ODI with Rohit Sharma’'s form the only cause for concern. The three-time ODI double centurion averages only 13.44 in 10 ODIs on South African soil

Mandhana (84) and Punam Raut (19) gave a solid start of 55 runs weathering the South African new ball attack under testing conditions.

The batting unit was particularly bad on Sunday when it crashed to 118 all out - South Africa's lowest-ever ODI score on home soil.

Barring opener Rohit Sharma, the top order batting comprising Shikhar Dhawan, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have been in impressive form while in the bowling department, the wrist spin twins - leggie Yuzvendra Chahal and chinaman Kuldeep Yadav - have literally been the reason behind India's two victories so far, sharing 13 wickets between them.

South Africa wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock has been ruled out of the remainder of the ODI series, and the T20s against India after suffering a left wrist injury during the second ODI in Centurion.

Seven months after a stupendous show in the World Cup, the Indian women's team shook off rustiness easily with a crushing 88-run win in the series-opener here on Tuesday.

India will fancy its chances to take an unprecedented 3-0 lead when it will take on a depleted South African team, plagued by injuries, in the third One-day worldwide of the six-match series at Newlands here on Wednesday.

India is leading on this series by 2-0, and they are just one step away from winning their first ODI series in South Africa.

Meanwhile, the Indian team is relishing a fine role reversal from the Test series. Virat Kohli, who has named 35 different playing elevens in 35 Tests, could very well field the same team for this third successive ODI. The visiting team lost the seven-match series 2-5 in 1992-90, while in 2010-11, India had lost the five-match series 2-3 after making 2-1 lead.

The win meant India picked up two points towards the ICC Women's Championship in their first game.

On current evidence, the visitors are expected to draw level in this statistic too and look worth their money as concerns the lead.
