Rilee Rossouw emphatically put two consecutive ducks behind him as his stunning, unbeaten 100 off just 48 deliveries before a varied attack struck regularly as the Proteas beat India by 49 runs in the 3rd and final T20 in Indore.

The left-hander exploited the Holkar Stadium's short boundaries with a spectacular showcase of hitting, smashing 8 sixes and 7 fours as he left the Indian attack demoralised and proved the mainstay in South Africa's charge to 227/3.

Furthermore, the knock improved on the unbeaten 96 he made against England a few months back, thoroughly justifying the national selectors' investment in his newfound experience ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia.

Quinton de Kock also built on his performance in the previous match with a sumptuous 68 that set the tone for the South Africans, an innings merely ended by him running himself out after opting for a risky second in the deep.

In-form David Miller hit three sixes in the final over to maximise the Proteas' score.

The only negative was skipper Temba Bavuma once again failing to heap pressure on his position in the team.

In reply, India maintained a brisk run rate but were ultimately undermined in the first two overs by Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell, who both struck in their first overs.

Rabada showed his class to end with figures of 1/24, while a canny Keshav Maharaj took the vital scalp of Dinesh Karthik (46) and Dwaine Pretorius (3/26) that of the dangerous Suryakumar Yadav.

The bowlers were also supported by some brilliant catching and ground fielding. 

04 October 19:08

Pretorius takes the final wicket as the Proteas gain a consolation victory by 49 runs.

Good all-round performance and a confidence booster as the World T20 looms. 

04 October 18:58

OUT! 

It's the same old story. Deepak Chahar had some fun and showed ability with some nice hits.

But his six off Dwaine Pretorius is followed by a catch in the deep.

India 168/9. 

04 October 18:37

OUT!

Ravi Ashwin takes on Maharaj in chipping him to long-on, but there's not enough power behind it. 

India 120/8. 

04 October 18:34

OUT!

Again, a lovely boundary, this time from Axar Patel who drives straight, is followed by a low edge to De Kock at slip. 

India 114/7. 

04 October 18:27

OUT!

Harshal Patel tries to show why he opens the batting in T20s for his state.

There's a meaty blow for six off Ngidi before he attempts a straight hit that's caught. 

India 108/6. 

04 October 18:19

Interesting this.

India reach 95 in the first 10.

South Africa made 96.

But those 5 wickets are the problem... 

04 October 18:12

OUT!

It's still raining runs and wickets.

The dangerous Suryakumar Yadav hits Dwaine Pretorius for a six, before giving himself room to flah at a wide one, which travels to a diving Tristan Stubbs at deep point, who takes a superb catch.

India 86/5. 

04 October 18:05

WICKET!

Oh dear, Dinesh Karthik!

The veteran has been in supreme form, racing to 46 off 20 after smashing Keshav Maharaj for 14 in his first over, only for the wily tweaker to castle him after he goes for a reverse scoop. 

India 78/4 after 7. 

04 October 18:01

39 runs off the last two overs as India keep up with the rate in scoring 64 in the powerplay.

But will they rue the three wickets they've lost?  

04 October 17:55

WICKET!

After a false start, India are now on the move as Rishabh Pant gets going against Lungi Ngidi, whose first over is a bit meek.

He goes for 20 off his first 5 balls before Pant tamely guides a cut off a slower ball to cover.

India 45/3 after 5.

04 October 17:39

WICKET! Another one! 

That was excellent from Wayne Parnell, who traps right-handed Shreyas Iyer in front over the wicket.

Takes some skill for a left-armer.

India 4/2. 

04 October 17:34

WICKET!

Superb start for the Proteas as Kagiso Rabada castles Rohit Sharma second ball via an inside edge. 

And then he keeps the runs down to two. 

04 October 17:23

Rilee Rossouw emphatically put two consecutive ducks behind him as his stunning, unbeaten 100 off just 48 deliveries guided the Proteas to an imposing 227/3 in the 3rd and final T20 against India in Indore.

The left-hander exploited the Holkar Stadium's short boundaries with a spectacular showcase of hitting, smashing 8 sixes and 7 fours as he left the Indian attack demoralised.

Furthermore, the knock improved on the unbeaten 96 he made against England a few months back, thoroughly justifying the national selectors' investment in his newfound experience ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia.

Quinton de Kock also built on his performance in the previous match with a sumptuous 68 that set the tone for the South Africans, an innings merely ended by him running himself out after opting for a risky second in the deep.

In-form David Miller hit three sixes in the final over to maximise the Proteas' score.

The only negative was skipper Temba Bavuma once again failing to heap inexorable pressure on his position in the team. 

04 October 17:16

24 off the final over as David Miller goes beserk with three sixes.

Proteas end on 227/3. 

Superb batting effort. 

04 October 17:12

OUT! 

Tristan Stubbs tries an off-side scoop. 

It only goes to short third man.

The rookie never quite got going. 

SA 207/3. 

04 October 17:10

A maiden T20I hundred for Rilee Rossouw!

It's been a magnificent effort off just 48 deliveries.

What a timely return he's made just before the T20 World Cup. 

04 October 17:07

200 up for the Proteas. 

It's been a procession after Siraj had initially pulled things back. 

Rilee Rossouw is two away from a 100. 

04 October 16:57

All kinds of weird stuff happening now as Siraj can't bowl his free hit because Rossouw went too deep into his crease and treaded on the stumps in his stride. 

04 October 16:56

NO BALL! Stubbs receives a waist-high full toss from Siraj that is caught in the deep. Reprieve however. 

04 October 16:47

OH SNAP! Deepak Chahar gives Stubbs a lifeline by failing to go through with a Mankad dismissal.

He goes back to his mark, bowls and gets hit for six by Rossouw. 

Interesting. 

04 October 16:45

5 overs left for the Proteas. 

They're on 154/2 with Rossouw in full flight and Stubbs warming up.

David Miller is still in the dugout too.

A big total is essential and on. 

04 October 16:39

50 for Rilee Rossouw too! 

Meaty slop sweep for six off Axar Patel.

It's taken just 27 deliveries. 

Amazing innings really because it's 6 balls quicker than De Kock even though it didn't feel that way. 

04 October 16:33

Tristan Stubbs gets an opportunity to bat.

And is promptly DROPPED off his first ball. 

04 October 16:32

WICKET! Oh dear, De Kock goes for a risky second against Shreyas Iyer's arm, stumbles and is out of his ground by a mile. 

He's out for 68 off 43, what a waste of a wicket. 

SA 120/2 after 12.1 

04 October 16:26

11th over is a cracker.

De Kock hits two fours before Rossouw skies a stretch for six. It was a proper top edge.  Unlucky for Harshal Patel though. 

04 October 16:21

100 up for the Proteas. 

Quinton de Kock is on fire. 

04 October 16:18

Proteas reach 96/1 at the halfway stage.

200 is surely on. 

04 October 16:15

50 for Quinton de Kock off just 33 deliveries.

He's clearly taken the form from the second part of his innings in Guwahati into this game. 

04 October 16:14

DROPPED! Rossouw goes for the sweep off Ashwin, but it goes quite flat to Mohammad Siraj at deep square, who has it and then lets it pop out.

It's the second maximum of the over after De Kock sublimely got conjures up a reverse sweep for six.

SA 83/1 after 9. 

04 October 16:11

Oh and by the way, on 36, Quinton de Kock reached 2 000 T20I runs. 

04 October 16:04

Temba Bavuma's last 16 T20I innings have delivered 247 runs with one fifty.

Reeza Hendricks scored 296 in his last 5 T20I innings with 4 50s. 

Telling stat. 

04 October 15:59

Ashwin has some fun with his variations in the last over of the powerplay before he drifts onto leg and Rossouw launches him for six over midwicket.

SA 48/1 after 6. 

04 October 15:56

Another man on a poor run, Rilee Rossouw, struggles to cope with Umesh's first three deliveries before receiving two freebies, which go to the fence.

He suddenly has 8.

38/1 after 5. 

04 October 15:52

OUT! The nightmare run for Bavuma continues. 

Slower ball from new bowler Umesh Yadav, the right-hander tries to get under it but the pace is lacking and the bat turns in his hand.

The ball merely spoons to midwicket.

SA 30/1. 

04 October 15:47

Spin on in the 4th over. It's R Ashwin.

Should be interesting. 

04 October 15:40

Quinton de Kock produces a smashing pick-up on leg that goes for six and then goes down leg again for four.

More importantly, Temba Bavuma is off the mark. 

Good second over for the Proteas, who are 14/0 after 2. 

04 October 15:33

DRAMA first ball.

De Kock plays defensively to an in-swinger, calls for a quick single but Bavuma patently fails to respond to the call and sends him back.

Fortunately the throw misses. 

04 October 15:31

Temba Bavuma won't take first strike this time round. 

The Proteas skipper is under immense pressure to score runs and do so at a more rapid rate. 

Will that be the tonic or is it a sign of his current mental state? 

04 October 15:06

Proteas XI: Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Dwaine Pretorius, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi

18.3 - Comment! Rilee Rossouw: Player of the Match: It is something that every cricketer goes through, lucky for me, tonight was my night. We had a discussion out there, and he said you be the guy scoring. They are a world class side. I am glad that I could contribute for the winning side tonight.
18.3 - Comment! Temba Bavuma: Losing captain: A win like this is always good for confidence. We struggled with the bat in the first game, our bowling was not best in the last game, but we were clinical today. A lot to take from this game. We did not turn up with the bat in the first game. In the second game, we could not execute our plans. We were a lot clear in the field today, it was a lot more clinical performance today.
18.3 - Comment! Player of the Series - Suryakumar Yadav (India).
18.3 - Comment! Rohit Sharma | Winning captain: As a team we said at the beginning, no matter what happens with the result - there is always room for improvement. We want to keep getting better as a team. Teams have been quite challenging, they can challenge in all departments. Something we have been talking about at length.
18.3 - Comment! That's all from us for this one. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Until next time, it's goodbye!
