Cape Town: A depleted South Africa have not been able to compete against India in the ongoing ODI series but pacer Kagiso Rabada would like to believe that all is not lost for the home team.
India have taken a 2-0 lead in the six-match series. The third ODI will be played at Newlands on Wednesday.
âThere are a few problems. I wouldnât say thereâs a lot. Sometimes when you do badly all it seems like thereâs a lot more going wrong than what really is happening. So failure is going to happen and it?s going to happen again,â said Rabada.
âIt is very important we keep speaking the right language. Anything can happen in sport. We need to get as much momentum as we can. We are definitely not out of it. Definitely not!â he added.
Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have wreaked havoc in this series picking 13 wickets in the first two matches. The Proteas had as many as five different wrist spinners in their nets on Tuesday in a bid to stem the rot in the next match.
âWe clearly havenât come to the party. Itâs not acceptable at all. India are a strong team. Theyâve just beaten Australia (at home) comprehensively. I know theyâve been playing all their games at home, but theyâve been playing good cricket,â said Rabada.Â Â Â
