Cape Town [South Africa], Feb 7 (ANI): India will aim to take an unprecedented 3-0 lead when they lock horns with South Africa in the third ODI of the six-match series at the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town on Wednesday.
The Virat Kohli-led side are currently boosting with confidence after taking a 2-0 lead in the series by dismantling South Africa in the first two matches in Durban and Centurion with consummate ease.
AB de Villiers was ruled out prior to his side's six-wicket win over India in the first ODI while skipper Faf du Plessis was pulled out before the second match, which the visitors went on to win by nine wickets.
Recently, South Africa's injury woes have only grown with Quinton de Kock ruling out of the remainder of the six-match ODI series and subsequent three-match T20I series against India due to wrist injury.
The national selectors, however, have chosen to not name De Kock's replacement in the squad.
The two teams are as follows:
India: Virat Kohli (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur.
South Africa: Aiden Markram, Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, Imran Tahir, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Chris Morris, Lungisani Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Khayelihle Zondo, Farhaan Behardien, Heinrich Klaasen (wk).(ANI)
