4th ODI, The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg 10 February, 2018

Toss won by India (decided to bat)

South Africa beat India by 5 wickets (D/L method)

Man of the Match: Heinrich Klaasen



Phehlukwayo seal things in style, hits Chahal for two huge sixes as South Africa seal famous victory to keep themselves alive in the series. They win this one by 5 wickets with two matches remaining in the series! 


Phehlukwayo continues from where Miller had left! He gets a six and a four from the Kuldeep over, collecting 17 runs in total as SA need just 9 more now from 3 overs.


WICKET! Chahal eventually gets Miller, but after some major damage. Chahal strikes Miller on the pads and Dar raises his finger. Miller departs for 39 but he has really put SA in control here.


Bumrah comes back into the attack and concedes 7 runs. Kuldeep with a poor effort to give away a cheap boundary. SA need 35 from 30 balls here.


Klaasen taking the game away from India here, first pulls a wide outside off over square and then Chahal oversteps, Klaasen deposits the free hit into the stands. Certainly not been Chahal's day so far. He concedes 15 again, South Africa need 42 off 36 here


SIX! Millers sends one straight into the car park right after Klaasen had gotten a boundary. Kuldeep being taken to the cleaners here. SA take 16 runs from the over, big one for them. Now they need just 57 from 42 balls. 


Chahal concedes 8 runs as Klaasen puts him away for a boundary, if South Africa manage to keep wickets intact, then run rate shouldn't be an issue for them. India need wickets


Big over for South Africa, Miller thrashes the first 3 balls for a boundary and South Africa pick up 13 runs from the Pandya over to give themselves a chance here. SA 121/4 after 19 overs here.


DRAMA! Miller was dropped two balls back but Chahal has his man or maybe not. Miller is clean bowled and he is walking back but umpires check for no ball and Chahal has oversteeped. Lucky break for Miller, can he make the most of it? SA 108/4


WICKET! de Villiers departs. Big wicket for India, Pandya with a slower ball and de Villiers doesn't middle that one. Rohit is on the boundary and he doesn't have to move. de Villiers goes back for 26.


SIX and SIX! de Villiers gets one right off the middle, tossed up but AB gets underneath that and hits it over the long on region. Clears the boundary easily. Chahal follows up with a short ball and de Villiers buries that one as well over mid-wicket! Chahal concedes 17 runs from his first over. SA 100/3


de Villiers bringing out the reverse sweep against Kuldeep, not connecting. Then, Miller sweeping one away to the boundary. Still a good over for India, SA need 119 from 13 overs.


WICKET! Kuldeep strikes again, tosses the ball up and Amla goes for the big one, just lofts it high and Bhuvneshwar completes a smart catch at long on. Takes the catch, sees he is touching the boundary and just tosses the ball to take it again. Amla goes for 33. SA 77/3


de Villiers not holding back now, slaps one over mid-wicket to get a boundary off Pandya, India pick 7 runs from the over. SA 77/2 and need 125 from 14 overs


South Africa's most experienced and dangerous pair - Amla and de Villiers at the crease now. India will know that if they get a wicket here, they will be in the drivers seat. Intriguing battle ahead now!


WICKET! Kuldeep strikes, Duminy comes down the wicket. He is way down the track but is hit in front of the stumps, umpire surprisingly raises his finger. SA have no review left, Duminy doesn't look happy but he has to go back for 10. SA 67/2


Finally South Africa getting a boundary,Amla thrashes one over extra cover as ball races towards the boundary. Hosts take 8 runs from the over, and South Africa are 67/1


Incredible that Amla has faced the leg spinners for the first time in the series, he is certainly showing the way, using his feet. SA not looking in any hurry here, they are 57/1 after 11 overs.


Pandya comes into the attack, remember he will have to bowl his full quota of overs today with Jadhav not there. He concedes 6 off the first one, SA 53/1 after 10 overs.


Kohli forced to bring Kuldeep early here, South Africa starting cautiously against him as expected. Using their feet more here are the hosts, Kuldeep concedes just 3 runs. SA 47/1 after 9 overs


Bumrah on the money right from ball 1. Completes a probing over, conceding just 1 run and causing trouble to Amla. SA 44/1 after 8 overs.


Latest Update: The official broadcasters have stated that the match will begin at midnight India time and it will be a 28-over match. 


Latest Update: The two on-field umpires are out on the ground and they are inspecting the venue. The out-field still looks a bit soggy and we have to wait for the umpires to take a call. 


Latest Update: The official inspection of the ground will take place at 11:40 PM IST and then the new targets will be decided by them. The officials will also take note of the venue if it requires any more time to get ready for the match. 


Latest Update: The match is all set to resume as wickets are being erected at Wanderers. We will let you know shortly when the match will resume and what will be the updated match target for both the teams. 


Latest Update: For a brief period the rain had stopped and super sopper were out on the ground. However, it has started to rain once again and the covers are back on at Wanderers. Stay tuned folks as we will get you the latest update as and when we get an update from the venue.


Latest Update: The rain is still coming down at Wanderers but it hasn't picked up intensity as are getting reports from the stadium. The good thing is that the stadium has a good drainage system so that will help. 


Latest Update: It seems that the rain has picked up intensity at the Wanderers and it will quite some time before we can resume the match. Let's see what decion will be taken by the officials but for that to happed, the rain has to stop first.


INTERRUPTION: Here we go again folks, the match has been interrupted once again due to lightning. The entire pitch is covered now and there is a hint of rain as well. The players have gone off the pitch and so have the umpires. We will keep you updated as to when the match will resume.

India's indomitable cricket team looks set for a landmark series triumph but an injury-ravaged South Africa would hope for some A B de Villiers magic to halt the visitors' charge in the fourth one-dayer, here on Saturday. With an unassailable 3-0 lead in hand, India need just one more win to claim their maiden ODI series triumph on the South African soil. The closest they came was in 2010-11, when under Mahendra Singh Dhoni, they shot into a 2-1 lead only to lose the five-match series 3-2. India had previously broken into unchartered territory at Newlands when, for the first time since they began touring here in 1992-93, they won three matches in a bilateral ODI engagement in South Africa. A fourth consecutive win will also cement their spot as the no.1 side in ICC ODI Rankings. Before the third ODI, Shikhar Dhawan had highlighted that the team wants to win every game ahead of them, building on victory in the third Test here, and there would be no complacency in the dressing room. Indeed then, Virat Kohli lifted his side to another dominant win with an immaculate 34th ODI century and later spoke of replicating the same intensity to wrap up the series with two matches remaining. The fact that Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have now accounted for 21 out of 30 available wickets is also a driving force behind this confidence. 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. Whether this will change on Saturday remains to be seen. South Africa may have slight cause for optimism as de Villiers was, on Thursday, added to their ODI squad for the remainder three matches. One of David Miller or Khaya Zondo will make way for him in the playing eleven. Unsurprisingly, despite the downturn, Aiden Markram will continue leading the side.

This match is of vital importance for South Africa in their home season. It is the 'Pink ODI', played for the awareness against breast cancer and for the benefit of those suffering from the disease. It was first held in 2011, and this will be the sixth such occasion. In fact, the Proteas have never lost when playing in their unique pink jersey. De Villiers has a handsome record on Pink Days. In 2015, he had smashed 149 off just 44 balls against the West Indies. In 2013, when India were first part of this Pink Day celebration, de Villiers had scored 77 off 47 balls. South Africa had amassed 358/4 on a Wanderers' wicket full of pace and bounce, and India had lost by 141 runs. That day Rohit Sharma had struggled against the likes of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, scoring just 18 off 43 balls. The opener's travails have extended to this tour as well. In 11 ODIs now in South Africa, the three-time double centurion averages a paltry 12.10. His form is the only pressing concern for the Indian team, yet not so much that he will be left out of the playing eleven. With the Men in Blue looking to wrap up the series, Kohli is expected to field an unchanged line-up once again. India have an average record at this ground. In seven ODIs here, they have won thee and lost four, including the infamous 2003 World Cup final against Australia. Also, as opposed to their unbeaten Test record against South Africa here, India have lost 3 out of 4 ODIs they have played against the hosts at Wanderers. Their only cause for cheer against the Proteas here came in January 2011, when Munaf Patel took 4-29 to lead India to a thrilling one-run win. Thanks to Kohli's imperious consistency and the terrorising form of their wrist spinners, that lopsided record might just be about to change.
