After losing the Test series, India came back strongly and won back to back two matches of the ODI series. The 3rd ODI match between South Africa vs India will be played on 7th February 2018 at the Newlands, Cape Town.
In the 2nd ODI, the highlights of the match were two young Indian spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. Especially, Chahal who took the five wickets which lead to South African team batting collapse at a humilitaing score of 118 runs. Except for few batsmen, none of them even reached the two digit mark. It was complete domination of Indian team over the host to register the 9 wickets win.
