IND vs SA 3rd ODI: India lose the final match by 4 runs in a thrilling finish, Deepak Chahar’s brilliant inning goes in vain

South Africa has successfully won the ODI series by 3-0.

South Africa successfully whitewashed team India by winning the close game of the 3rd ODI. Team India lost the nail-biting and Deepak Chahar’s innings showed no outcome in the results.

South Africa won by just 4 runs and snatched away the ODI trophy with a win by 3-0. This is South Africa’s ‘fewest margin runs’ win record as team India was only short of 4 runs. After this loss, KL Rahul becomes the first Indian captain to lose each of the three ODIs as a skipper.

Deepak Chahar’s innings go in vain as the tail-ender gave hopes to all the fans out there who were cheering for team India. Fans witnessed a heartbreaking moment as Chahar’s tears rolled down for not being able to win the game.

South Africa cleaned up the series with a whitewash which will force team India and their management to reconsider the thoughts and choices before touring a team. Coach Dravid might think of a stable team XI and the ‘captaincy choice’ remains a question. With Rohit coming in as a white-ball skipper, fans might hope for a good result.

South Africa’s brilliant 287 knocks have once again made it crucial for team India to hold onto. The top order and the middle order look unstable to keep a belief on as inconsistency in performance has been shown by Indian batsmen. Fans and team always hope for Virat’s finishing innings and not just a half-century as the veteran batsman keeps the potentiality to stay till the end.

Quinton and Rassie have performed consistently in all three ODIs as the opening batsman comforted the base to allow the middle-order batsmen to come and finish. And somewhere the early wickets lost by team India gives the middle-order batsman the responsibility more than his potential. The only improvement in team India has been the tail-ending batting as the former franchise CSK duo – Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar have played a brilliant inning respectively.

Quinton’s 124 runs knock made a crucial impact on team India’s second innings as the opening batsman gave a strong start to the team and was also honored with the – Man of the Match as well as the Man of the Series trophies.
