South Africa lose the series 2-1 after India triumphed in the opening two matches but do take 2 ICC Women's Championship for the triumph in Potchefstroom.
After losing the Test series against South Africa, India have bounced back in style in the limited overs format, by winning the first 3 ODIs. The opener added 158 runs for the second wicket with skipper Virat Kohli (75) to lay the foundation of India innings.
So, let's fasten our seatbelts and get set for a cracker of a contest on Tuesday, in Port Elizabeth as the two teams meet again for the fifth ODI.
Earlier in the Pink ODI, India had won the toss and made a decision to have a bat. Despite practicing with at least five different local wrist spinners at Newlands, the Proteas' batting line-up still couldn't contend with India's first-choice spin duo. However, it remains to be seen if he will be deemed fit to play on Saturday. This was for the first time India registered three consecutive ODI wins on South African soil. One of David Miller or Khaya Zondo will make way for him in the playing eleven. South Africa left-arm pacer Shabnim Ismail bowled exceptionally well today taking four wickets and giving away 30 runs in nine overs.
The Proteas, wearing pink outfits in support of breast cancer awareness, seemed hapless as India's left-hand-right-hand combination found the boundaries easily.
South Africa lost two quick wickets to Kuldeep Yadav who trapped JP Duminy in front and Hashim Amla was caught by on 33 by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He is just going to come in and be AB de Villiers.
De Villiers‚ who missed the first three games of the rubber with a finger injury‚ is the only addition to the squad for the remaining three matches. Needing to mount the highest successful run chase at the ground, South Africa fell woefully short. It looks a complete unit although Kohli and Shastri would hope Rohit Sharma will live up to his reputation.
South Africa was 43 for one after 7.2 overs when lightning, followed by rain, caused a lengthy delay.
Virat Kohli said:In the second innings when the game was placed after the interval, we got a difference of 35 between runs and balls, it was nearly a T20 game. In seven ODIs here, they have won thee and lost four, including the infamous 2003 World Cup final against Australia.
Their shortened innings forced South Africa to be more positive against the Indian spinners and this worked to their advantage as they launched both Chahal (1-68 in 5.3 overs) and Yadav (2-51 in 6 overs) over the boundary with regularity.
Captain E Markham made a decision to do something different and after winning the toss asked India to bat. "His consistency in all forms of the game is phenomenal".
South Africa survived a nail-biting finish to edge out India by five wickets in a rain-curtailed fourth ODI in Johannesburg on Saturday.
