India Vs South Africa 4th ODI : India, opportunity to make history!
The happy ending of the India Vs South Africa 4th ODI Test series took place at the Wanderers Stadium. Having beaten, wounded, attacked and attacked a bad pitch, Team India had turned the tables on the clean sweep of the hosts. Once again, the same ‘Virat Sena’ is on the same field. Here’s a one-day record to not be easy for him. But, what does it matter?
The Indian team aboard the Aswemedi chariot of victory will be desperate to change history here on Saturday. On the one hand, there is a team standing on the threshold of historic victory, on the other hand is the team that was sitting on the peak of one day till tomorrow. Today, there is a question of saving prestige in front of her.
For now, the Indian team, which has been set for a 3-0 lead, needs just one more win to win the first one-day series on South African soil. Earlier, in 2010-11, under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy, he made a 2-1 lead but lost the series to 2-3.
India won three matches for the first time in the bilateral ODI series in South Africa after 1992-93 with victory in Newlands. Now, by winning the fourth match, India will want to secure its position on number one in the ICC one-day rankings.
Prior to the third ODI Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan said:
The team wants to win every match and there is no ambivalence in the dressing room. Virat Kohli led the team with a 34th ODI century, leading the team to victory. He later said that in the remaining matches will also maintain the same aggression.
Bowler Kuldeep Yadav and leg-spinner Yusufendra Chahal have taken together 21 wickets in 30 and this is also the reason for Virat’s confidence. South Africa practiced with five different spinners on wrist on Newlands but could not face Chahal and Yadav. In the last three matches, the host and the team faced the team as if a team (India) is attacking, while the other is just and dilly-dallying.
It is not known how the day will be for the hosts, but on Saturday the wanders will be pinkish. The players of South Africa will also enter the pink dress while most of the audience will be wearing pink. Such a campaign to educate people against breast cancer will be done in support.
Pink Day’s first event was held in 2011 and it is being played for the sixth time. South Africa did not miss a single match in the Pink Jersey. De Villiers scored 149 runs in 44 balls against the West Indies in 2015. Earlier in 2013, against India, 77 were scored in 47 balls.
