    The platform though was set by the openers as they got India off to a flier. Both fell in quick succession but then came the magical stand. Suryakumar Yadav was at his fluent best and Virat Kohli played second fiddle. That stand was the difference between India ending with around 200 and above 220.

    It was a tough day for the South African bowlers. All of them went the distance. There were far too many full tosses too not sure if it was because of the dew or just poor execution but South Africa will be very disappointed with their performance. No one apart from Keshav Maharaj showed any kind of discipline.

    South Africa were always behind the 8-ball. They were chasing more than 200 and lost two wickets in no time. Although they than showed some determination, it never felt like they were in the chase. De Kock struggled before scoring his fifty while Miller was back with runs but not enough to get a victory. He scored a brilliant century but it wasn't just enough.

    Earlier, The Proteas won the toss but it turned out to be a bad decision. The top 4 of India were with runs but it was the stand between Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav that almost guaranteed a win for them. South Africa were just too loose with the ball. Too many freebies probably cost them the series.
