Cape Town : India on Sunday faced series white wash against South Africa, after they lost third (last of the match) by four runs in Cape Town on Sunday to end a disastrous tour of the 'Rainbow Nation'.

South Africa scored 287 runs after were asked to take the first strike. In reply, India were all out for 283 in 49.2 overs, completely mis-handling a chase that should have been completed smoothly.

This is among the most disappointing limited overs series outings for India in recent years, especially after having blanked the Proteas in their backyard in 2018.

Team India had started the series on a good note by winning the first Test by 113 runs and then they failed miserably against the host in rest of the games.

Looking to restore some pride in their last match of the tour, India overhauled their playing XI by making as many as four changes, bringing in Suryakumar Yadav, Jayant Yadav, Deepak Chahar and Prasidh Krishna.

The ones to miss out were Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Venkatesh Iyer and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The changes did not prove anything good for India in the final result.
