David Miller: “Didn’t help scoring just 99. Disappointing result to finish off the series in that way. There was a bit of spin, and it was two paced, it was tacky as it was under covers due to the rain. We were really good in certain areas, we managed to find our feet. We just need to extend the good periods when it comes to ODIs.”
Shikhar Dhawan: “I am proud of the boys, the way they played. We showed a lot of character in the first game, we dropped a few catches, but we never really put pressure on ourselves. We tried to stick to the process. I am enjoying the journey, I’ll try to keep performing well for my team. The boys showed great character on such tough batting pitches. The bowlers were clinical today.”
Kuldeep Yadav is the Player of the Match for his four-wicket haul: “Feeling very happy, to be honest. The wicket was perfect and I am enjoying my bowling. I am not thinking too much about the result, just focusing on the process and focusing on my rhythm. I am trying to bowl in good areas. My next target is to perform well in the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament.
Mohammad Siraj is the Player of the Series for his five wickets in the series: “Performing against a good team gives you a lot of confidence. I had to take responsibility. I try to figure out the right lengths at the start of the innings. As a fast bowler, you need that fire and passion inside you.”
India vs South Africa 3rd ODI Highlights today, Tuesday 11-10-2022. 3rd ODI (D/N), Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi, South Africa tour of India 2022.
Toss: India chose to field.
Shikhar Dhawan: I feel there is a bit of moisture and we want to exploit it. The team has been impressive and mature. We are going with the same team.
David Miller: It is a privilege to captain the country. Would have bowled first had we won the toss Jansen, Andile, and Lungi Ngidi come in.
India team: 1 Shikhar Dhawan (capt), 2 Shubman Gill, 3 Ishan Kishan, 4 Shreyas Iyer, 5 Sanju Samson (wk), 6 Washington Sundar, 7 Shahbaz Ahmed, 8 Shardul Thakur, 9 Kuldeep Yadav, 10 Avesh Khan, 11 Mohammed Siraj
South Africa team: 1 Quinton de Kock (wk), 2 Janneman Malan, 3 Reeza Hendricks, 4 Aiden Markram, 5 Heinrich Klaasen, 6 David Miller (Capt), 7 Marco Jansen, 8 Andile Phehlukwayo, 9 Bjorn Fortuin, 10 Anrich Nortje, 11 Lungi Ngidi
Pitch: Heavy rain has fallen in Delhi over the weekend causing water-logging and traffic chaos in addition to threatening a washout of the series decider. The forecast is slightly improved for Tuesday, with the chance of rain falling from 40% in the morning to around 15% later on but the teams could still end up with a reduced match on their hands. Should play get underway, expect a surface that should offer more to the quicks than what we have seen so far. The Arun Jaitley Stadium has not hosted an ODI since March 2019, but in the last three matches, the average first innings score has been 259, and the team batting first has won all three matches.
