Watch India vs South Africa women's match online

With one more to go on Friday, India has now won the series, accomplishing the feat of winning a bilateral ODI series for the first time against South Africa in South Africa.

Earlier, Rohit ended his prolonged bad patch with a fine hundred as India scored a respectable 274 for 7 after being put into bat.

One can't ignore Hardik Pandya's contribution as his all-round skill sets came into good effect getting 2 for 30 with seamers and then a run-out with a direct throw off in-form Hashim Amla (71), which decisively swung the match in India's favor.

Rohit became the fourth highest century scorer in ODIs for India, after Sachin Tendulkar (49), Virat Kohli (34) and Sourav Ganguly (22).

Rohit Sharma slammed 115 runs from 126 balls in the fifth ODI.

South Africa could only manage 201 all out in 42.2 overs in its chase, with Yadav taking 4-57 and Chahal 2-43.

It also picked up points in other areas such as research productivity, even though it tends to lag behind on research environment. King Mongkut's University of Technology Thon Buri is placed at 114th ranking compared to last year's 101th-110th.

Nontheless, India will be confident after the ODI series win.

Skipper Virat Kohli could not capitalise potential bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah and chose to depend on the spinners, failing to respond to South Africa's attack. When New Zealand looked on track, for example, to chase down India's 337 in Kanpur previous year, Bumrah bowled overs 46, 48 and 50 and won India the match even thought it had seemed earlier that the overs bowled by Chahal and Hardik Pandya were already putting matters beyond a Bumrah spell.

It was required because the visitors also suffered a mini-collapse, losing four wickets for 29 runs. "Lot of pride to play for in the dead-rubber and we will look to bounce back and end the ODI series on a positive note at Centurion". Yadav picked up four wickets and Chahal notched up two.

The lower middle-order comprising of Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya have had little to do with Kohli in ominous touch but if he fails, things can still go awry for India like it did in the Champions Trophy final against Pakistan past year. Markram was in good nick and scored 32 off 32 balls which included a six and four boundaries. His ODI average is just 11.45 in 12 matches in South Africa. In the 33rd over, Rohit survived a review from South Africa for caught behind and in the next over, he was dropped by Tabraiz Shamsi (0-48). South Africa won by 80 runs. The key moment came when de Villiers slashed hard at a back-of-length ball in the channel from Pandya and only edged it behind.

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.
