Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli made up for the loss of Rohit with a 140-run partnership, during which both batsmen surpassed their half-centuries. It was then about a lovely partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli that got things underway.

Cape Town: Aiden Markram has won the toss and South Africa have elected to bowl in the third ODI against India at Newlands in Cape Town on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Lungisani Ngidi and Heinrich Klaasen make ODI debut for SA.

Virat Kohli produced a virtuoso hundred as India comfortably triumphed by 124 runs in the third One-Day International (ODI) against South Africa at Newlands. This is going to be a do or die match for South Africa because if India wins this match then making a comeback in the series would be impossible for the host.

Kohli has been simply unstoppable in the 50-over format of late and today's match-winning effort was his fourth three-figure score in the last six ODI s.

Heinrich Klaasen, 26, will make his worldwide debut, taking over the wicketkeeping gloves from De Kock and batting in a middle order severely weakened by injuries to AB de Villiers and regular captain Faf du Plessis.

The LAPD confirms Eggert met with detectives Tuesday and they are "looking into the allegations". "Both Nicole and I were minors. Sara Gilbert broke down in tears when she read how Baio allegedly assaulted her friend while he worked on the show.

And the list has only grown with Quinton de Kock (left wrist injury) ruled out before the third ODI.

The highest ever chase on this ground was 258, and the way the South Africans started theirs it soon became clear that the record will remain intact.

Kohli dominated India's total of 303 for six after the tourists had been sent in on a good batting pitch.

South Africa needed to find a way to combat India's wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. "We thought it might do more under lights with two new balls". He had batted at no.4 in Durban (scoring 9 off 21 balls) and at no.3 in Centurion (scoring 8 of 11 balls). Khaya Zondo along with David Miller batted with resilience and objective.

South Africa's innings started on the back foot.

In return, South Africa were shaky at best.

Meanwhile, the Indian team is relishing a fine role reversal from the Test series.

The tourists boast a commanding three-nil series lead.

In the present, there is once again no need to change things around.

The win meant India picked up two points towards the ICC Women's Championship in their first game.

When the winning numbers were first announced, she didn't believe she had won. "When they came in, he said: 'Don't do it, bro". She thought she was required to do so as directed by information on the state lottery commission's website.

Virat Kohli said that he chose to "hit out" towards the end of the Indian innings in the third ODI as he was starting to cramp up and wickets were falling at the other end. They went from 79 for 1 to losing nine wickets for the addition of 100 runs in 23.4 overs.
