Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal make history in India's 124-run win

South Africa might also want to switch Amla to the middle order, so as to counter the spinners. They are not used to (playing spin).

Zondo scored only 25 runs off 45 balls, and played far too many risky strokes, but in an innings that folded for 118 runs in 32.2 overs, he was the joint top-scorer with JP Duminy.

After Kohli reaffirmed his status as an ODI great with an unbeaten knock of 160 off 159 balls to propel India to 303 for six, Kuldeep and Chahal bagged four wickets each to help India take an unprecedented 3-0 lead in the ongoing series. They are told to go for wickets at all times. Due to their skill and accuracy, the South African batsmen have been unable to score runs off them anyway, while getting out in droves.

The left-hander accepted that South Africa batsmen are finding it extremely hard to pick Chahal and Kuldeep.

Of the 27 South African wickets claimed by bowlers in this series, 21 have been taken by the spinners.

Twice previously, India have managed to win two ODIs in a bilateral series in South Africa - in 1992-93 and in 2010-11.

They may find it more challenging to control the ball than the traditional finger spinners do, but they can do much more with it - such as imparting more spin on it and giving it more air.

In the first ODI in Durban, they took five wickets between them. Every over they might pick up two wickets, that is the kind of belief they have in their abilities and the team has a belief in them, the team is backing them. When you bowl wide and try to save runs then you give an opportunity to take singles also.


"They've always, every over they've asked two-three questions of the batsmen, that is something outstanding". After the third match gets over in Cape Town on Wednesday, the action shifts to the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg for the crucial fourth game on Saturday. The key is definitely to try and be positive, but unfortunately on a few occasions, we haven't picked the wrong 'uns. But we know if we bowl well enough to him we could get him out.

"There's no doubt that we will reconvene after this game and break down where we are going wrong".

Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have picked up 21 wickets in three ODIs so far.

With du Plessis still part of the dressing room despite his injury, this was more of a change in keeping with the pitch conditions on Sunday than anything else.

"They've bowled a touch slower than our spinners, and I think that's where they have been effective", he elaborated, echoing what Dale Benkenstein, the South Africa batting coach, had said after the second ODI. We need to make sure we have different strategies to that. As Duminy pointed out, the basic problem has been the batsmen haven't been able to pick which way the ball is turning - not to speak of being done in by the dip both spinners get. "It is not that Ashwin and Jadeja are out of the race".

India's bowling has gone strength to strength on this tour and there was rarely a sight even in the Test series which India lost 2-1 that the Indian bowlers were not on par with the South Africans.

Left-arm wrist-spinner Yadav started spinning the web with just his second ball on a warm evening in Cape Town when he left stand-in captain Aiden Markram stranded with a terrific delivery that went away from the right-hander. "If we don't, we soak up a bit of pressure and see them out, then that's obviously what the game plan is in that moment and on the day".

It is quite baffling that some of the quickest men on the cricket field have struggled to steal the much-needed ones and twos that would have not let the wrist spinners settle to a rhythm and dictate terms.
