Fifth ODI: SA win toss, elect to bowl against India

14 February, 2018, 18:17 | Author: Carla Brady
  • HISTORY created! Men in Blue win first bilateral ODI series in SA

The men-in-blue won the first three matches of the six-game series and thus were eyeing for a clean sweep. Rohit, who struggled to score in the previous ODIs, involved in a 105-run second-wicket stand with skipper Virat Kohli (36/ 54b, 2×4) before the Delhi lad was run out by JP Duminy following a misunderstanding with the opener.

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

Kohli said that while his team would be pushing for another victory in the final match of the series in Centurion, it might be an opportunity to give other players in the squad a chance to impress.

"Two batsmen (Kohli and Rahane) were run out before this (ton) in front of me".

While India were defeated 2-1 in their recent three-Test series against South Africa, they bounced back brilliantly in the ongoing ODI series as they secured their first-ever bilateral ODI series win in the country on Tuesday.

Earlier, Rohit notched up his 17th ODI century. "My hundred has gone now and the next game I play, the hundred I scored isn't going to matter much", Rohit was quoted by Cricbuzz after India's win.

While the hosts have made one change in the playing eleven as Chris Morris has been replaced by spinner Tabraiz Shamsi, the Virat Kohli-led Team India remains unchanged.

It won't be the same team, in the first place, with the captaincy changing hands from Mithali Raj to Harmanpreet Kaur, with T20 specialist Anuja Patil reintegrated, and two 17-year-olds - Jemimah Rodrigues, who sat out the entire ODI leg, and the Baroda allrounder Radha Yadav - potentially making their global debuts.

Ironically, he was sorely missed in India's defeat at the hands of the Proteas in the fourth ODI at Johannesburg on Saturday. Against another batsman, David Miller, Chahal was back to bowling slow and looking for the wicket.

It should be noted that India have lost all five ODIs which they have played at Port Elizabeth since 1992.

Aiden Markram's side, meanwhile, will be brooding with confidence having kept the series alive. "The way (Jasprit) Bumrah and Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) have shown experience, it's awesome", Kohli said. The match will start at 4:30 pm IST and the toss will take place 30 minutes before that.

Miller returned to the crease after his reprieve to construct a match-winning partnership of 72 off 43 balls with Klaasen.

Live streaming: It can also be streamed live on Sony LIV, the digital platform on the internet.
