India came into this One Day International series off the back of a 2-1 series loss in the Test. As Wednesday's opener proved, ODI skipper KH Rahul and his deputy – pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah – are yet to find the winning formula.

South Africa, batting first, proved to too strong for India's accomplished spin bowlers. Tenmba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen make centuries, leaving India 1-0 down and in a dreadful funk.

South Africa went on to win Friday's 2nd ODI  by seven wickets with 11 balls left, thus completing a 47th ODI win over India. The Proteas decision to rest fast bowler Kagiso Rabada – the leading wicket-taker of the Test series with 20 wickets from three matches – in favour of spin bowler George Linde proved wise.

The finale – the 3rd ODI – starts at 8.30am GMT on Sunday 23rd January.
