South Africa beats India by 5 wickets in fourth ODI by D/L method. De villiers from South Africa missed the first three ODI’s and he returned for the 4th ODI which is the must win game. Fifth ODI starts at Port Elizabeth on Tuesday and there is a winning chance. Due to the finger Injury De Villiers missed the first three series and he returned for the fourth series in which he could score only 26 runs out of 18 balls but the target couldn’t be cleared. The play of De Villiers is the positive fact for Proteas that his presence could make the middle players supportive.
Ganguly played 311 ODI’s and 113 test matches mentioned that the South African spinner is left out and the play they made was completely planned. Not only the number of overs but, the rain in the place makes the spinners in India difficult to spin. In the previous games the batsman of South Africa had done poor batting strategy that made the wickets more than the spinners play. The poor batting resulted in 21 wickets for the spinners.
On Saturday because of the rain the ball skidded in to the bat which makes the Batsman play well said by Ganguly. He mentioned that the kohli’s team defeat should not be concerned much because they are leading already. He said that his team tops by 3-1 ratio and has two matches to spare. Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli played good batting and this maintained the run-rate stable. The spinners of India selected for half day but the remaining persons Klaasen, Markram, Miller and Phehlukwayo make it more Interesting in the remaining half. South Africa should do very careful playing as Port Elizabeth is not very successful or high scoring ground in concern. Bowler rabada is the one who terrors the Indian team but it was expected to be De Villiers.
