    After a stronger comeback in Ranchi, the Indian men’s cricket team is set to face South Africa, in the third and final One Day International (ODI). The match will be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, on Tuesday (October 11) at 1:30 PM IST.

    The Shikhar Dhawan-led Indian team lost the first ODI of the three-match series, on October 6, in Lucknow. South Africa’s David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen with the bat, while Lungi Ngidi with the ball, guided their side to a victory earlier.

    However, it was all India’s show in Ranchi, in the second ODI of the three-match series on October 9. Proteas skipper Keshav Maharaj won the toss and opted to bat first. With the help of Reeza Hendricks and Aiden Markram, the visitors managed to put on a decent total of 278 for seven. Hendricks scored 74 runs in 76 deliveries with nine fours and a six; Markram, on the other hand, notched 79 runs in 89 deliveries with seven boundaries and a six in his account. Meanwhile, India’s Mohammed Siraj picked up three wickets and conceded 38 runs during his spell of 10 overs.

    In reply, the Indian openers botched to start well. Further, Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer carried on and built a huge partnership of 161 runs. Kishan missed a well-deserved century at home ground; he scored 93 runs in 84 deliveries with four boundaries and seven sixes. Iyer, while, smashed his second ODI ton and scored an unbeaten knock of 113 runs in 111 deliveries with 15 boundaries. The duo and Sanju Samson in the end, aided India to attain a dominant victory by seven wickets.

    The Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi has been a slow surface to score. The pitch at the venue offers decent bounce and carry, being helpful for the pacers. However, the pitch could be called balanced, considering the past matches played here.

    Although, it could be a day out for the batters as the pitch has been beneficial for the batters after settling down at the crease. The stadium also has smaller boundary dimensions and an incredibly quick outfield.

    India vs South Africa 3rd ODI: Team India’s record at the Arun Jaitley Stadium

    The Arun Jaitley Stadium will host its first ODI since March 2019. When India last played ODI here, Australia were the opponent and the hosts had lost the match by 35 runs and had won the ODI series 3-2.

    It was South Africa’s tour of India in June 2022, when the stadium hosted the first T20 International of the five-match series. It was a high-scoring game, with both sides scoring more than 200 runs.
    Further, the stadium has hosted 26 ODIs and two of them got abandoned. So, deeming the remaining 24 ODIs, the win-loss ratio between chasing teams and the teams batting first is equal. The average first innings score has been around 241.

    Considering team India’s record at the venue, India have played 21 ODIs at the venue and have won 12 of them, with two being canceled.
