The proteas clinch their first victory in the fourth ODI against India in the on-going ODI series in Johannesburg on Sunday after losing first three ODI’s.   

The host nation South Africa played their number one game when it mattered the most. However, India is still in a commanding position as they lead the series 3-1 and two matches left to play. 


Indian skipper Virat Kohli wasn’t a happy man clamming India didn’t deserve to win after South Africa chased down the revised target of 202 runs in 28 over fairly easily with 2.3 overs still remaining in the innings.   


 “South Africa pulled through, they deserved to win and we did not. The pitch got faster in the evening and the guys didn’t settle in the second half,” Virat Kohli stated.


It was expected that India will score a mammoth total going by the start they got. The tourists were 172 for 1 at one stage. But as soon as they lost skipper Kohli and a well set Shikhar Dhawan, South Africa took hold of the game.


India was in very strong position in the fourth ODI, after Kohli and Dhawan added 150+ runs partnership and India was 172 for 1 at one stage. But the middle order batsman failed to exploit the platform and could not accelerate to a massive total.   


Kohli speaking about the second innings second innings, “The second innings, we got a difference of 35 between runs and balls. It became a T20 game. The game got shorter (after the break) and it worked in their favor, having to go after the bowlers,” 


South Africa suffered major setback in the run chase as AB de Villiers got dismissed early and brought India back in the game. But David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen and Andile Phehlukwayo took South Africa over the finishing line.
