India were left in a spot of bother against South Africa in the third ODI in Cape Town. Chasing 288 in 50 overs, the visitors were steady during the course after Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan had put up a partnership of 98 runs for the second wicket. 

But Dhawan's departure for a 73-ball 61 broke the shackles and his dismissal was followed by Rishabh Pant's wicket who was dismissed for a golden duck by Phelukwayo leaving India at 118/3. 

Later, Kohli who eventually got another fifty was joined by Shreyas Iyer and the two tried to steady the ship for the side. At the time of writing India were 147/3, needing another 141 to win the match. 

The home side has already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series after clinching wins in the first two games.
