India register first-ever ODI Series win in South Africa

India register first-ever ODI Series win in South Africa

This is the first time India won any ODI series on South African soil. India thereby clinched their first-ever series in South Africa. With this win, India has also snatched number one chair from South Africa. Her form, and Anuja's versatility - she is capable of holding one end up in the event of early wickets or pinch quick runs with inventive strokeplay - could even allow India to promote Shikha Pandey from her usual lower-middle-order position. Shikhar Dhawan (34) and Rohit (115) got off to a cautious start scoring just five runs in the first three overs before the boundaries started to flow. They have never lost a game played in pink uniform and did so again thanks to some rain that meant the match was reduced to the D/L method and some good fortune in a catch being missed and a no-ball negating a wicket that had been taken. Ngidi took four wickets for South Africa which started the chase very well as the openers put on 52 runs. Hashim Amla's 71 and Heinrich Klaasen's 39 were the only takeaways for the hosts, soon after which they collapsed for 201. The Indian team is 3-1 up in the series and would be hoping that they wrap the series at Port Elizabeth.

Upstaged by a performing captain Virat Kohli‚ there are questions being asked in some quarters‚ perhaps fairly or unfairly‚ about Aiden Markram's ability to both skipper and make runs at this stage of his career.

Overall, Kohli is placed 16th in the world with South Africa's AB de Villiers just ahead of him with 9515 runs in 226 ODIs. Sharma lasted for more than 40 overs finally being dismissed for a 126 ball 115 with the score on 236/4.

Team South Africa led a resurgent fightback against the Indian team - who were gung-ho after a hat-trick of victories - in the fourth One Day International (ODI) at Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. At 65 for 3 in the 13th over with their main batsman gone, South Africa's task looked steep.

For the Proteas, Lungi Ngidi was the pick of the bowlers.

On the tour so far, Rohit had tallied 118 runs in eight innings across two Tests and four ODIs.On Tuesday, he nearly doubled that at St. George's Park. "I knew I didn't have to change a lot and the runs would come", he said.

India were unchanged, while South Africa picked left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi in place of all-rounder Chris Morris, who has a back strain.

Former and current India players heaped praise on the Indian team as Twitter was flooded with congratulatory messages with Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar leading the way. Sony Ten 1 and Sony Ten 1 HD will provide the coverage live in English commentary.
