India vs South Africa Final Scorecard & Match Result - 5th ODI Match

India vs South Africa, 5th ODI in Port Elizabeth, latest update: Morkel pats the ball straight into the hands of Chahal off the first ball, with the latter putting the chance down.

If India win today, the men in blue will register their first series victory on South African soil.

The Virat Kohli-led side started the series on the front foot, winning the first three matches with comprehensive wins in Durban, Centurion and Cape Town. "Ever since the third Test in Johannesburg, it's been a good time for us", he added. "It's been a collective effort to create history", Kohli said after the match.

"To restrict that strong Indian batting line up to 270, you would think that we should go on and chase those runs but we were not able to".

"For now, 4-1 feels wonderful".

Asked about Kohli's aggressive brand of leadership, the former South African skipper said, "I am not saying aggression is what he is offering, but it's more the attitude that I can back myself, win the battle and come out on top". On Tuesday he changed all that with 115 runs from 126 balls. There are so many things to learn from that and so many things that other young keepers may not even be able to contemplate. What was important for me was to bat long and get the team to a good score and am glad we came out hard and defended it.

Second US judge blocks Trump's decision for ending DACA program
Judge Garaufis said that was not a compelling argument, and said DACA is neither unconstitutional nor illegal. Trump's aides bungled the phaseout, following a case in a federal court in California.

David Miller (36) played positively and with Amla solid at the other end, the duo consolidated with a 72-run stand and by the halfway mark, South Africa were placed 119 for three. But Pandya, who had been dismissed for a golden duck, added to his exploits of being a sublime fielder with a superb throw from mid-off that rattled the stumps at non-striker's end.

South Africa Women: Dane van Niekerk (C), Marizanne Kapp, Trisha Chetty, Shabnim Ismail, Ayabonga Khaka, Masabata Klaas, Sune Luus, Odine Kirsten, Mignon du Preez, Lizelle Lee, Chloe Tryon, Nadine de Klerk, Raisibe Ntozakhe, Moseline Daniels. The visitors managed just 179/9 with make-shift opener Rahul Dravid and Azharuddin scoring half-centuries.

Shreyas Iyer joined Sharma who, after he was dropped on the boundary by Tabraiz Shamsi on 96, went to his 17th ODI century off 107 balls. Rohit more than made up with a fluent knock which saw its own action. It's a remarkable achievement against the World No. 1 team too.

For South Africa, Lungisani Ngidi was the pick of the bowlers returning figures of 4/51 while Kagiso Rabada picked up a wicket.

While India have fared extremely well under Kohli's leadership, Kallis feels that it could become a detrimental asset going forward.
