South Africa continued the demolition process against West Indies in the ongoing One Day International series by winning the third game by a vast margin of nine wickets. The innings of the Windies was rolled back for mere 122 runs in 33.4 overs and the Proteas chased the target successfully by blasting 124 for the loss of one wicket with more than 25 overs to spare. The hosts lead the series at 3-0, finds themselves at a commanding position and the unpredictable batting line up of the tourists is letting them down time and again.
Imran Tahir produced a deadly spell of bowling in the third ODI, grabbed four important wickets while Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel chipped in with 3, 2 and 1 wicket. Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis shared an unbeaten partnership of 97 runs for the second wicket with their individual contribution of 61 and 51. Rilee Rossouw, AB de Villiers, Jean-Paul Duminy, Farhaan Behardien and David Millers have scored lot of runs in the recent past.
The misery of the Carribean’s batting can be noticed by a high score of 26 from Marlon Samuels and none of the other batsmen was able to reach the twenty runs mark. The strong looking batting line up consisting Dwayne Smith, Chris Gayle, Narsingh Deonarine, Denesh Ramdin and Jonathan Carter must come up with their promise. Andre Russell and Jerome Taylor are the top wicket takers with three each and the remaining ones are struggling to find their form.
