  • Sachin Tendulkar hails Yadav and Chahal as key to overseas conditions

They certainly do deserve that lofty status for the visitors were simply streets ahead of the Proteas in this series. This includes a defeat against Kenya back in 2001-2002 season at the venue. This time it was different, though.

"Just a little bit more fight with the bat". It's easy to say you can keep flighting it against other batsmen, but de Villiers is different. After looking at India's score, it seemed that he was nearly 50 runs short.

You can't be too harsh on Chahal here. We've heard that it's skidding on under lights and that's the reason we want to chase'.

On the tour so far, Rohit had tallied 118 runs in eight innings across two Tests and four ODIs.On Tuesday, he nearly doubled that at St. George's Park. As it so happened, in the 26th over, it was Rahane's turn to drop Amla off Hardik Pandya. Morkel's quick start however was offset in the very next over as Shikhar Dhawan hit three boundaries off the first four deliveries of the pacer's next. The whole idea was to bowl at them for 50 overs with our wristspinners, who can exploit any conditions. "The wicket gets faster as the deck got hard. Unfortunately it rained, and that made a bit of a difference".

Pollock said, "We have seen they are now settled in ODIs". It makes a difference when the ball gets wet. Virat Kohli as a captain is slightly different to others. It was a complete performance from us which was important to put together after the last game. "The way (Jasprit) Bumrah and Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) have shown experience, it's incredible", Kohli said.

It is not as if it always backfires.

Kohli's dismissal came as a result of Rohit refusing to run and Ajinkya Rahane (8) went in similar fashion as India's centurion was caught ball-watching. I got out after that break and runs didn't come.

Indian captain Virat Kohli said he would have preferred to bowl. Because the wicket was such and the ground was wet, we couldn't have won by just defending the runs. During the fifth ODI, he removed David Miller lbw to take his 13th wicket of the series.

"As a leader, sometimes you can not always be as aggressive as he is".

Dhawan only had words of encouragement for the spinners.

"Looking back, I think they have identified that preparation-wise they needed to be here for more time". "Anyone can have a s**t day, you know?" Unlike those three, however, she is yet to win a match against a non-subcontinental side. "But it seems they are making strides and getting better at it". 5,6,7 to be able to go in, learn the situation and adapt to it. Like at the Wanderers, Iyer got himself into an awkward catching position, this one with his hands in front of his face in a more self defence position and thus spilled a straight forward catch.

As the middle-order struggled to lift the scoring rate despite being given the flawless platform, one could not help but wonder how valuable a quick-fire 30 or 40 from Raina would have been in that instance.
