India managed to hang-on to a nervy seven-run win over South Africa in the third and final T20I in Cape Town. Chasing a target of 173, South Africa were too slow in the innings until JP Duminy (55) and Christaan Jonker did some hitting. Jonker scored 49 off 24 balls  to give South Africa a chance but India bowlers managed to get them home. Earlier, India lost regular wickets in the middle and death overs which gave South Africa a chance to come back and restrict India to only 172/7. Batting first, India were moving towards a good total with Raina and Dhawan scoring quick runs. But both fell, Raina for 43 and Dhawna for 47, and no other batsman was able to give India a late push and take the total towards 200. India were playing without Virat Kohli with Rohit leading the team. (India vs South Africa Scorecard)
