India vs South Africa, Cricket Score, 3rd ODI: Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan Rebuild After Early Jolt

Virat Kohli-led India will look to cement their hold on the six-match ODI series as they take on South Africa in the third match at the Newlands Stadium, Cape Town. India are currently 2-0 up in the series while the hosts have lost four of their key players to injury. Skipper Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock and Dale Steyn are all missing from the Proteas side. Given their injury list, the South African team is in a precarious situation and this match is somehow a must-win for the hosts if they are to make a comeback in the series. De Villiers is expected to return for the fourth game. India, on the other hand, appear to have regained their form after the 1-2 Test series loss, in the limited-overs format. Skipper Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan have been in sublime form with spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav taking wickets

“You Divided Nation For Selfish Gains”: PM Modi Targets Congress

New Delhi : In a scathing attack on the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi blamed it for Partition today, accusing the party of devoting its energies to "the interests of one family," while neglecting the interests of the nation. The country, the PM said, is "still paying for the sins of the Congress." His speech in the Lok Sabha included several barbs at Rahul Gandhi, whose recent elevation as Congress president the Prime Minister described as a "coronation, not an election."

"Don’t lecture us on democracy. It was your party chief who tore up an ordinance and threw it in the faces of the media… It was your party chief who did not let young leaders get their points of view," the Prime Minister said, while replying to a motion of thanks on the President’s address in parliament.

As he spoke in the Lok Sabha, opposition lawmakers continuously shouted slogans, attempting to disrupt the speech. The Prime Minister did not stop speaking, saying, "Your slogans can’t drown my voice, I wish the opposition listened to me quietly." Rahul Gandhi was present in the house and was seen listening intently to the Prime Minister, at times gesturing quizzically.

Outside Parliament, Mr Gandhi said, "He keeps taking about the Congress… yes, there is a place for it. You do it at a public rally, its perfectly fine, but not in parliament. Here you don’t criticize or raise questions on the Congress, here you answer to the people of the country."
