Virat Kohli smashes 160 no, India post 303

India's

India captain Virat Kohli made a magnificent 160 not out to help his team register a thumping 124-run win in the third ODI against South Africa at Cape Town's Newlands on Wednesday.

Rabada bowled the last over and was smacked for 15, a lot of them when Kohli lifted him over midwicket for six and followed that by smoking the last ball of the innings past the bowler's despairing lunge and through extra cover for four. The Indian captain hit Kagiso Rabada for a six and a four off the last two balls of the innings to take India over 300. If South Africa wins today's match, then Indian women have one more chance on February 10 when the third ODI is scheduled to be played at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom.

Dhawan went to his 50 first, reaching the milestone off just 42 balls.

With India in a spot of bother losing two wickets for 107, Harmanpreet joined forces with Smriti and the duo frustrated the South Africans with quality strokeplay.

Few Indian teams have bowled as well as India have overseas this tour.

Dhawan admitted that India's advantageous position should be credited to spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, who have combined to take 13 wickets in the first two ODIs.

India now hold a 2-0 lead over a depleted South Africa side, who will go into the third ODI without AB de Villiers, captain Faf du Plessis and wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock. Is the pressure getting to her?

What the latter includes is obvious, but the new parental settings let parents limit how much child accounts can play for day. The child will receive notifications telling them when the time is about to expire so they can save and quit their game.

Speaking at a media conference on Tuesday, Rabada claimed that there are only a few problematic areas for the South African team. From a healthy 79 for one in the 17th over, the hosts were reduced to 129 for five in the 33rd over, ending all their hopes of a recovery.

Although the 30-year-old has become one of the most feared openers in limited overs cricket since that outing, he has failed to crack the code in South Africa. It was also Kohli s second-highest ODI score after 183 against Pakistan in 2012.

But Kohli had come to bat, not be part of a pub quizz, and he reeled in the runs with peerless zeal. The pitch slowed up markedly throughout the innings and no other batsman would get more than a modest start but Kohli the warrior titan surged on. Ricky Ponting, with 283 runs in 2001-02, was the previous best. He immediately asked for DRS review, which showed an inside edge and the decision was overturned.

In the second ODI we saw a brilliant knock by Shikhar Dhawan as he smashed a nice half century.

Markram then turned to a twin spin attack with JP Duminy joining Imran Tahir in an attempt to stem the runs. In fact, it was stand-in skipper Markram who did all the hard work and took a stunning diving catch to dismiss Dhawan who had danced down to the part-timer.

India put on a winning total of 303 for 6 and South Africa just never got close as India's wrist-spinners once again proved too good for South Africa's batsmen.

Virat Kohli, who has named 35 different playing elevens in 35 Tests, could very well field the same team for this third successive ODI.
