India skittle out South Africa for 99 in ODI decider

Spinner Washington Sundar led an inspired attack as India bowled out South Africa for a paltry 99 in the third and deciding one-day international on Tuesday.

South Africa survived only 27.1 overs after being put into bat first on a pitch full of moisture following days of rain in New Delhi that caused the match to start late due to wet outfield.

It was South Africa’s fourth-lowest total in 50-over matches after their 69 all out in Sydney and then twice being bowled out for 83.

Kuldeep Yadav stood out with figures of 4-18 as he wiped off the tail with his left-arm wrist spin.

Sundar, fellow spinner Shahbaz Ahmed and pace bowler Mohammed Siraj took two wickets each.

Sundar was handed the new ball and the lanky off-spinner struck in his second over to send back Quinton de Kock caught at short third-man for six.

Siraj rattled the top-order with the wickets of Janneman Malan, for 15, and Reeza Hendricks, for three, to put South Africa on the backfoot.

The Proteas slipped further to 43-4 after Aiden Markam’s departure as the batsman fell caught behind off left-arm spinner Shahbaz Ahmed for nine.

Heinrich Klaasen, who top-scored with 34, attempted to rebuild with David Miller, who was making his captaincy debut with regular skipper Temba Bavuma and previous-match leader Keshav Maharaj out unwell.

Sundar bowled the left-handed Miller for seven and the rest of the batting caved in.

Shahbaz bowled Klaasen and in between the change of batsmen a dog walked on the field to provide some entertainment to the crowd.

Kuldeep was on a hat-trick averted by Lungi Ngidi but soon dismissed Marco Jansen to wrap up the innings.

India, who bounced back from their opening loss to level the series 1-1 on Sunday, need 100 runs to clinch the series with a second-string side after Rohit Sharma’s team last week left for the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia.
