5th ODI, St George's Park, Port Elizabeth 13 February, 2018

Toss won by South Africa (decided to bowl)

India beat South Africa by 73 runs

Man of the Match: Rohit Sharma



WICKET! Chahal strikes!  Morkel is absolutely plumb as the ball comes back and hits him straight in front of the wicket. Kohli is elated,India win this one by 72 runs and also take the series here. SA are dismissed for 201.


WICKET! Shamsi departs first ball, looks to clear the ground but can only air that one. Pandya and Dhawan almost collide but Pandya can do no wrong in the field today, just throws his hand out and takes a one handed catch. He is smiling now! SA 201/9


WICKET! Klaasen also departs now, he comes down the wicket and misses it. Dhoni completes an easy stumping. He doesn't miss many, all over for SA you have to say now. Klaasen played well for his 39. SA 197/8.


WICKET! Rabada departs now, trying to give it a big heave but its the wrong one. It goes straight to Chahal at extra cover. He completes a simple catch. Rabada departs for 3. SA are 196/7.


Yuzvendra Chahal concedes 4 runs from that over, SA not exactly pressing the panic button yet, Klaasen still looking composed out there, he is the key wicket as far as SA are concerned


Bumrah comes back with an excellent over, conceding just 2 runs in that over. 40 overs gone and South Africa are 192/6. Final 10 overs left and they need 83 runs, meanwhile India need 4 wickets


Pandya with an excellent over there, pulling back things for India. He concedes just 2 runs. SA are 189/6 after 39 overs and need Klaasen to play a blinder if they are to win.


16 RUNS: Kuldeep Yadav tosses the ball up and Klaasen goes for a big heave. The batsman connect well for a big six. In the same over, he continues the attack on the wrist-spinner and hits a boundary through mid-wicket. The carnage doesn't stop there as he hits over the bowlers head, for a big six. 16 runs coming from the over. SA 187/6. 


Hardik Pandya comes up with another good over. Now it looks really difficult for the South Africans to come back from here. Just three runs coming from the over. SA 171/6.


OUT: Kuldeep Yadav comes for another spell. And he gets Andile Phehlukwayo for a duck. He delivers a googly, and the ball just comes back in to hit the timber. SA 168/6. This is great bowling the wrist-spinner.

RUN OUT: This is disaster for South Africa. Hashim Amla is run-out for 71. Hardik pandya gets a perfect direct-hit. SA are in trouble with the scoreboard reading 166/5. That's a big wicket for the Indians. 


Bumrah comes into the attack now. Amla is looking very comfortable now. He hits Bumrah for a four through deep cover. And the fielder had no chance of stopping the ball. SA 165/4.


Bhuvneshwar comes back into the attack. This might not be a big spell for the bowler, as Kohli must be trying different combinations now, so that the Proteas don't settle on the wicket. On the last ball of the over Amla gets a four through mid-off. This would ease some pressure. SA 160/4.  


A good over from Kuldeep comes to an end. The bowler is still looking for wickets, as he is pitching the ball up. The South Africans will have to target one of the spinners now to get some quick runs. SA 154/4.


FOUR: Klaasen sweeps the ball through mid-wicket for a four. He looks to put pressure on Chahal. The batsmen then tries to play a shot over the keeper's head. So Klaasen has decided to have a go now. Nine runs coming from the over. SA 148/4.


That is another clean over by Pandya. He gives nothing away in the entire over, and persists with a short-pitch line. That is enough to stop batsmen from scoring runs. Just five coming from the over. SA 139/4 after 30 overs.


FIFTY FOR AMLA: A  great over by Chahal as he has Amla under-pressure. After a few misses, Amla goes for a rash sweep and misses the line of the ball completely. He survives an LBW shout. But the very next ball he brings up his 35th ODI fifty. SA 134/4.


With this wicket, India have forced their way back into the match. There is not much batting left after this pair, so India needs to be patient and keep up the good work. Also it would not be easy for new batsman Klaasen to adjust on the slowish wicket. SA 130/4.


BOWLED: Chahal castles Miller. The batsman completely misjudges the line of the ball. That is a big breakthrough for India. South Africa 127/4.


DROPPED: And this time Ajinkya Rahane was the culprit. Hashim Amla plays a crisp shot towards point. And Rahane misses a straightforward chance. This could be costly miss for India. SA 122/3. 

Catch India vs West Indies LIVE. Off the pitch. Only on


Amla skied a Chahal ball, but the fielder was no where near the ball. India needs some luck here, otherwise the South Africans will run away with the match. Amla and Miller bring up their 50-run partnership as well. SA 119/3 after 25 overs. 


Hardik Pandya comes back into the attack. That's a good change seeing the situation of the match. You don't want to finish all the spinners' overs as yet. Indians need to pick some wickets, otherwise run-rate is not really an issue for the Proteas at the moment.


And Chahal tries to stop a cracking shot by Miller. That's really good fielding by Chahal on his own bowling and saved a certain boundary. After that he bowls a perfect leg-spinner to Amla, where the ball pitches on leg stump, and goes on top of off-stump. But that delivery doesn't fetch him a wicket. SA 110/3.


Hashim Amla nearly plays one onto his stumps. He was beaten for pace by Yadav. Not trying anything flashy thereafter, Amla takes a single. SA 107/3 after 22 overs.


Chahal, somehow keeps the length short. But still Proteas weren't really able to take their chances. His over just accounts for three runs. SA are 102/3.


Kuldeep continues with his slower ones. And to go with it, he is getting the ball to turn sharply. Out of the two spinners, he is creating more problems for the batsmen. SA 99/3 after 20 overs.


SIX: Chahal flights the ball. Miller dances down the track and hits the ball into the stands. SA batsmen are not afraid of taking the attack to the Indian spinner now. SA 95/3 after 19 overs.


Kuldeep is flighting the ball well. Both the batsmen are not looking to score any boundaries off him certainly. But they are trying their best to gets some singles though. Just four runs coming from it. SA 87/3.


Now it's turn for another leggie—Yuzvendra Chahal. Dhoni telling the bowler to pitch the ball little bit fuller.  And he gets the reward for listening to the keeper. He has a close shout for LBW against David Miller. Just two runs coming from the over. SA 85/3.


Miller gets a four. Kuldeep pitched the ball up and Miller swept the ball towards mid-wicket boundary. The bowler is doing the right thing by inviting the bastman to play his shots. 9 runs coming from the over. SA 83/3 after 16 overs.

PREVIEW IND vs SA: Failing to maintain their triumphant run after a defeat in the fourth One-Day International (ODI), India will aim to clinch their maiden bilateral 50-overs series against the Proteas in South African conditions in the fifth encounter on Tuesday. India started on the front foot clinching the first three matches by a comprehensive margins. South Africa, however, bolstered by their victory in the last tie will have an opportunity to end the six-match series on an even note. The recent history which has seen India losing against the Proteas in the 50-over format at the South African conditions could change under the flamboyant captaincy of Virat Kohli. In 2013-14, India were outclassed by South Africa 0-2 while in 2010-11 the visitors gave a tough fight but failed to get hold of the series, losing it by a slender 2-3 margin. Kohli, with 393 runs in the ODI series so far, which contains two centuries and identical numbers of unbeaten knocks, has led India from the front to heap trouble on the already depleted hosts. Alongside the skipper, opener Shikhar Dhawan has looked in fine nick throughout the series and will be the key to give India a dominant total on board in the encounter on Tuesday. There is also a strong possibility of Kohli dropping opener Rohit Sharma, who has failed to get going in the series, scoring merely 40 runs in the four matches. The skipper in that case, might fall in the trouble of selecting from plenty amongst Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey or Kedar Jadhav. Equally well complimented bowling department, led by the wrist spinning pair of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who have been difficult to be picked up by South Africa throughout the series, will continue to be the lethal weapons for India. However, for South Africa wicket-keeper batsman Heinrich Klaasen, who played his first match of the series and assured them a comprehensive victory in the rain-curtailed encounter in Johannesburg, had looked to tackle the Indian wrist spinners well. Batsmen Hashim Amla, Jean-Paul Duminy, AB de Villiers and David Miller, who can win their side a match single-handedly on a given day, might also look to come hard on the formidable Indian side, with nothing to loose. In the bowling, all eyes will be on pacers Kagiso Rabada and Lungisani Ngidi to provide their side with flurry of wickets at the St George's Park. However, the weather department has forecast rain to hit the city and it may affect the team composition.

The fifth ODI between India and South Africa will be played in Cape Town and the live broadcast will be shown on Sony Ten Network, starting 4:30 PM. The match can be streamed online on Sony For live scores, updates, and analysis, you can follow our live blog on
