Virat Kohli 2nd Indian to score 400 runs in bilateral ODI series

Indian players celebrate the dismissal of JP Duminy

India thus, secured the series 4-1 with one match remaining. That double strike by South Africa combined with a near hour-long interruption for lightning ended India's momentum.

Shreyas Iyer has been showing the elements of an global batsman, but he has failed to strike big as he edged Ngidi to Klaasen behind the wicket just when it seemed that he was building the platform for a late innings flourish. Kohli has 34 hundreds in ODIs and is second in the list of most century makers behind Tendulkar, who had scored 49 hundreds.

India Women: Harmanpreet Kaur (C), Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, Veda Krishnamurthy, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Anuja Patil, Taniya Bhatia, Nuzhat Parween, Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Shikha Pandey, Pooja Vastrakar, Radha Yadav. The squad: JP Duminy (C), Farhaan Behardien, Junior Dala, AB de Villiers, Reeza Hendricks, Christiaan Jonker, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Chris Morris, Dane Paterson, Aaron Phangiso, Andile Phehlukwayo, Tabraiz Shamsi, Jon-Jon Smuts.

Hardik Pandya picked up two important wickets while wrist-spinning twins Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav came into their own picking up six of the 10 South African wickets.

WICKET! Jasprit Bumrah has removed Aiden Markram early, as Virat Kohli takes an easy catch at mid-off. Rohit Sharma was the "Man of the Match". His wicket was taken by Ngidi but before that, he had added 115 runs on the scoreboard.

Rohit Sharma slammed 115 runs from 126 balls in the fifth ODI. Rohit has the worst average by an Indian cricketer in South Africa at the moment.

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. But one can not take away the pressure that Chahal keeps building from the other end. I knew I didn't have to change a lot and the runs would come.

Meanwhile, India's record at Port Elizabeth is not good as they have lost all 5 ODIs played here since 1992.

South Africa chased down a revised target of 202, ultimately easily, after David Miller was bowled off a no-ball, given a life, and used it crack a match-turning 39 from 28 balls.

The live broadcast will begin at 4.30 pm IST.

Rohit, however, was involved in two unfortunate run-outs - first with skipper Virat Kohli (36) after sharing a 105-run second wicket stand and then Ajinkya Rahane (8), who fell victim to Rohit's mistimed call.
