History in South Africa

Indian batsman and Captain Virat Kohli leaves the field

Rohit Sharma inspired India to a victory over South Africa and a series win that ensures they will leapfrog the Proteas and go top of the one-day rankings.

India and South Africa will play the sixth and final ODI of the series at SuperSport Park, Centurion on Saturday. Yesterday, South Africa won the toss and asked India to bat first. His calling had become suspect after the double blow, with Shreyas Iyer waiting until his partner completely committed to the run.

Meanwhile, he had his words of praise for batsmen Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. Rohit's 17th ODI hundred set up India's series-clinching win.

Lungi Ngidi was the key bowler for South Africa as he finished his spell with four wickets.

After failing to pick up wickets during 4th ODI, Indian spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav will look to bounce back. It's a remarkable achievement against the World No. 1 team too.

Virat Kohli survived a close stumping call, but was soon run out. Rohit Sharma was finally amongst runs and Port Elizabeth turned out to be generous for him. The whole idea was to bowl at them for 50 overs with our wristspinners, who can exploit any conditions. In reply, India managed only 163 as Irfan Pathan was the highest scorer with an unbeaten 47 off 55 balls. Mithali Raj's women army also lost the last ODI, and it gave Dane van Niekerk's women the momentum entering the five-match T20I series, starting Tuesday February 13.

It will be intriguing to see how Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal tackle the Proteas batting-line up, who countered the Indian spin duo easily in the last match. This is not just for me, but for all batsmen in the team, because such a situation does come that you are trying your hardest but things don't come off.

All four of Harmanpreet's T20I half-centuries, including two unbeaten 60s in losing causes, have come when she has walked in with 10 or more overs left in the innings. With a tough decision to make, the third umpire flashed OUT on the huge screen to create a hush inside the stadium and extinguish South Africa's hopes. When he was on 28, there was a tense moment as Heinrich Klaasen whipped the bails off, as Shamsi - playing this game in place of an injured Chris Morris - drew Kohli forward in the 23rd over. Amla, however, was run out from a direct hit by Hardik Pandya and Andile Phehlukwayo (0) was bowled by the other wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav to leave Klaasen running out of partners. Because the wicket was such and the ground was wet, we couldn't have won by just defending the runs.
