India rout South Africa by 124 runs, take 3-0 lead in 6-game ODI series

CAPE TOWN: A 10-hour drive from Cape Town lies the capital of South Africa’s Northern Cape Province – Kimberley. For a country seeking collective reprieve right now from India’s One-day cricket dominance, even Kimberley failed to provide any respite as the South African women lost to a very impressive Indian performance – Smriti Mandhana’s 135 off 129 balls and leg-spinner Poonam Yadav’s 4-24 – and went down by a massive 178 runs.

Here in Newlands too, it was the same story. Riding on Virat Kohli‘s masterly 160 off 159 balls and wrist spinners Yazuvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav’s four-wicket hauls, India rode to yet another massive win over South Africa on Wednesday. Batting first and setting the hosts 304 to win, the home team ended up winning the third of the six-match series by a huge margin of 124 runs.
