India beat South Africa by 73 runs to clinch maiden series win

Shaun Pollock Disappointed By India's Approach In Test Series vs South Africa

"And because he loves that attitude there is a good chance that Pandya will get a long run in the side, to settle himself and cement his spot in the team", Pollock said, as quoted by the Press Trust of India.

Even if South Africa win the sixth and final ODI on Friday in Centurion, India will remain No.1 on 121 points, while South Africa will end on 119 points, the ICC said in a statement.

72 runs needed by Ajinkya Rahane (2,920) to become the 20th Indian and 148th overall to the 3,000-run mark. Under lights, there's a possibility of the ball skidding on more and possibly negating India's spin twins a little bit.

Amla felt that the heavy loss against India gives South Africa food for though and it can be a blessing in disguise ahead of the 2019 World Cup. The team management have kept a close eye on the workloads of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, who have been playing since the Tests.

In the five ODIs that have been played thus far, Markram has only scored 103 runs at an average of 20.60.

South Africa head coach Ottis Gibson has admitted that he can not explain stand-in captain Aiden Markram's sudden dip in form with the bat.

"A lot of credit has to go to India". It augurs well for the team because we always talk about batsmen batting through the innings. Incidentally, Morkel was to be rest at Port Elizabeth but Chris Morris's untimely injury meant he had to play. Morne Morkel, 9. Lungisani Ngidi, 10. The all-rounder has recovered from his back issue and should return to the playing XI for Friday's encounter. The only other time it happened was when they lost 1-5 with one tie against Australia in 2002. In an interview given to Hindustan Times, he said that Virat might need to tone down the aggression that he has as a captain.

India clinched their maiden ODI series win on South African soil, taking an unbeatable 4-1 lead after outclassing the hosts by 73 runs. In nearly every game, one of their top three has scored a hundred. The current record is held by Javagal Srinath and Amit Mishra, both having taken 18 scalps each. "270-280 (which India have got often in the series) is not a total beyond any batting reach, so I think the combinations we have had have been fine, it's just those of us up front haven't done it".

The visitors who have already pocketed the series 4-1 will be in a search to finish off the series on a positive note.

"I'm very pleased, it was another complete performance from us", he said referring to Tuesday's win. We know we have those players but they have not produced it in this series, which is disappointing. "If their turn to bat doesn't come, we can not do anything", he says, adding in jest "If we are playing well, we can not come back retired hurt".
