Kohli hails 'complete performance' after India claim historic win

India has not won a series in South Africa and have also never won a game at St George's Park.

The last match of the series is at Centurion in Pretoria on Friday and will be followed by three Twenty20 clashes.

Rohit Sharma inspired India to a victory over South Africa and a series win that ensures they will leapfrog the Proteas and go top of the one-day rankings.

Rabada though bounce back strong when he had Dhawan caught at deep square leg, bringing an end to a 48-run opening stand as India reached 61 for one in the first powerplay.

Among top run getters in the series, Kohli leads the way as expected with 318 runs and Dhawan comes a far second with 162 in three matches. His hands work at the speed of lightning, for stumpings we all know that.

Indian captain Virat Kohli said he would have preferred to bowl. "Ever since that third test in Johannesburg, it's been a wonderful time for us here". "It feels wonderful to create some history". I think we can do a research into his style of wicketkeeping and I would like to call it The Mahi Way.

"For now, 4-1 feels incredible". We want to win 5-1 for sure, but yeah, there might a scenario for a few more guys to get a chance next match.

Government Back Open After Brief Shutdown
Paul refused to allow that to happen, upset that an amendment of his to restore budget caps was not being put up for a vote. The Senate has recessed until 12:01 a.m. on Friday-past the deadline to prevent the second shutdown in less than a month.

Shreyas Iyer (30), though, stuck around with Sharma long enough to put together a 50-run partnership for the fifth wicket that pushed India closer to a defendable total. On Tuesday he changed all that with 115 runs from 126 balls. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who came in for rough treatment in the last ODI, returned to their wicket-taking ways, with Kuldeep taking 4 for 57 and Chahal returning 2 for 43.

Klaasen, the other hero from the previous ODI, fought gamely with a 42-ball 39 but he was left with too much to do while running out of partners. As it so happened, in the 26th over, it was Rahane's turn to drop Amla off Hardik Pandya. This is not just for me, but for all batsmen in the team, because such a situation does come that you are trying your hardest but things don't come off. Rohit scored his 17th ODI ton today and he must be a relieved man. Rohit more than made up with a fluent knock which saw its own action.

WICKET! Ajinkya Rahane is dismissed for eight runs, as he is run-out.

The team batting 1st has won 19 games, while the team bowling first has also won 19 times.

Meanwhile, South Africa will be looking to take early wickets of Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan who are in great shape.

India's generally average catching day could have ended on a rather comical note right at the end when Hardik Pandya chose to chase a high ball from mid-off when Shikhar Dhawan from long-on looked poised to settle under it.
