Dhawan makes century in India's 289-7 in 4th ODI in SAfrica

Suddenly South Africa were reduced to 102/4 with the wrist spinners in action. He has been rather off colour since coming to South Africa.

Few things scream pressure more than having to front up to India, possibly the world's best exponents of white ball cricket, as a wet behind the ears youngster with no Faf, AB or Quinny to have your back.

India were dealt a big blow in the first over of the match when Ismail dismissed the in-form Smriti Mandhana (0).

Earlier in the Pink ODI, India had won the toss and chose to have a bat.

Continuing his glorious run in the tour, Kohli, who had slammed 112 and 46 not out in the first two ODIs, shouldered the Indian innings single-handedly.

While 23,000 people are attending the game in person, they are also advised to come and watch the match in a pink outfit themselves to showcase their support for the breast cancer awareness.

The way their bowlers had dominated the proceedings India still fancied their chances. Indians got Aiden Markram early after a 22-run start but rain interrupted the game and the revised target for South Africa was 202 in 28 overs.

South Africa's pacemen adopted a successful strategy of aggressive short bowling and, although Dhoni managed a run-a-ball 42 not out, India were never able to get on top of the bowling.

South Africa ended on 207-5, winning with 2 1/2 overs to spare when Andile Phehlukwayo launched his third six to win the game.

That was until Miller and Klaasen chose to show them otherwise. But miraculously for South Africa, television replays revealed that the delivery was a no-ball and Miller was back in the middle.

India: Virat Kohli (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur. His century came off just 99 balls. He scored some crucial runs for his team, and which results, South Africa has successfully won the test series. Looks like a hard pitch with a good grass cover.

The bowling suffers from a similar issue, but it is much less likely that the spin duo will fail against a batting lineup that obviously finds slow bowling cumbersome. They followed that with a nine-wicket win with 177 balls in hand in the second ODI, at Centurion. He knows how hard it has been for the Indian side. Especially guys like Miller and their keeper batted brilliantly as well. In saying that, we were millimetres away in Cape Town, we were millimetres away in Durban. They are a quality side and we know that.

The second break came when the Proteas had reached 43 for the loss of Aiden Markram's wicket in 7.2 overs. Just relieved to have got over the line today.
