India fi­nally tastes suc­cess on South African soil

Mail Today - - INTERACTIVE -

MANY con­grat­u­la­tions to the In­dian Cricket team on their first bi­lat­eral se­ries win in South Africa. Team India cre­ated his­tory as they clinched their first ever bi­lat­eral ODI se­ries win on the South African soil by beat­ing the Proteas by 73 runs in the fifth One-day In­ter­na­tional (ODI) at St Ge­orge's Park.

In­dian wrist spin­ners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzven­dra Cha­hal wrecked havoc as the South Africans were skit­tled for 201 in 42.2 overs af­ter India had posted 274 for seven.

And All-rounder Hardik Pandya played a key role in India's se­ries-clinch­ing win and Ro­hit Sharma’s first cen­tury in South Africa set up Team India’s maiden ODI se­ries vic­tory over South Africa in their den. And it was a col­lec­tive team ef­fort as the Kohli-led team has taken an unas­sail­able 4-1 lead in the six-match ODI se­ries.

It was re­ally an­other per­for­mance by In­dian cricket team. We hope that it should be 5-1 lead in this se­ries. Again I would say, it was great ef­fort to win the ODI se­ries. Md Ab­sar
