South Africa won the toss and elected to bowl first: India Vs South Africa


New Delhi [India], Feb 13:  Indian fans eye on MS Dhoni who is just 46 runs short from 10,000 ODI runs, a feat that will place MS in a league of 11 other extraordinary gentlemen. MS Dhoni will become 12th batsmen to reached 10000 runs. From South Africa perspective, the victory comes as a breath of fresh air in the morning. They have also been boosted by the return of their charismatic batsman, AB de Villiers. The home side would like to believe, after chasing down the reduced target of 202, the all-important momentum is in their favor. Something they would carry to St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth for the fifth ODI.

Bad news for South Africa, there is a chance of rain at Port Elizabeth as the forecasts had suggested a 30% probability of precipitation. The weather is more humid here, given that this is a coastal city, and the gauge currently reads 78% humidity. If rain affect this game which clear all the cloud for India as they will win series, if match called off.

Hero of the last game for South Africa Phehlukwayo went stunned Indian leg spinner during a 5-ball 23, as the hosts emerged triumphant in a truncated contest. The pressure of losing the series for South Africa, continues to weigh down on the hosts with a series (3-1) very much tilted in India’s favor. South Africa will be fighting once again to keep their hopes alive and Port Elizabeth presents them with a good opportunity as India have never tasted victory at the venue, having lost all four of their previous encounters.
