India slams South Africa in the 3rd ODI of a 6 match series. Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, India chose to bat first and delivered a score of 304 and winning by a huge margin of 124 runs.

Virat Kohli rose to lead India by 160 off 159 balls along with Left-handed opener Shikhar Dhawan's 63-ball 76, chinaman Kuldeep Yadav's 4-23 and leg spinner Yazuvendra Chahal's 4-46.Kohli’s brilliant performance overshadowed Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni’s underperformance.

South Africa tried their best in resisting India to reach 303-6 in 50 overs while India bounded South Africa to 140-2 around the 24th over.

South Africa fought well in the first half of the game, but Kohli's brilliance and the dominance of Chahal-Kuldeep duo and the absence of three of their leading batsmen -- Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock added up to their loss.
