Proteas down India in nail-biting fourth ODI

12 February 2018

After 31 overs in the first innings they were superbly placed at 176/1, with both of Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan seemingly nearing centuries. "But I was very surprised", said Klaasen.

The stand was broken when Kohli hit pacer Chris Morris straight into the hands of David Miller at short cover, with India at 178/2 in 31.1 overs.

He added: "Usually, our spinners don't bowl no balls".

Chahal and Kuldeep, the wrist-spinners, had taken 21 wickets in the first three matches but only managed 3 for 119 in 11.3 overs combined at the Wanderers. De Villiers had scored 367 runs against Pakistan in 2013.

Pyeongchang 2018 revealed it had received an official letter from NBC , apologising for making the inappropriate comments. The Korea Times: "His incorrect and insensitive comment about Korea's history has enraged many of its people".

The 26-year-old wicket-keeper batsman, who replaced injured Quinton de Kock, said that it was Yadav who had anxious the Proteas in the series so far with his variations. His captain - despite a forecast for rain - had chosen to bat, the ball was wet and skidding off the surface, the chase had turned into a T20 innings, he was bowling to a tiny leg-side boundary, the Pink Day crowd was "ballistic" in the words of Heinrich Klaasen, and de Villiers looked in form. But the 72-run partnership between the two came off just 43 balls and changed the complexion of the game in quick time.

India began to lose wickets at regular intervals once Dhawan was gone, but wicketkeeper MS Dhoni struck an unbeaten 42 to help the tourists finish on 289/7 off their 50 overs. Chahal did pick one wicket but it was too late by then. On Saturday, it began to appear yet again that barring Kohli's confidence - one that makes him look like he's batting on a different wicket altogether - most of the others have yet to begin clicking for this Indian team if 2019 happens to be their target over the next 15 months. I got out after that break and runs didn't come.

India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bat first, but his side were unable to get off to a good start as opener Rohit Sharma was brilliantly caught and bowled by Kagiso Rabada for five runs.

When the match resumed, Dhawan was the first to be dismissed, driving Morne Morkel to AB de Villiers at mid-off. The field had sort of given it away, and Klaasen kept shuffling well wide, sometimes even hitting balls that would otherwise have been called wides.

Puel hoping Mahrez tension with Leicester now over
I want him to come back soon and play, because we enjoy watching him. "He is clinical. But we can drop points, lose games, but as long as we are who we are".

"Super relieved to have gotten over the line today". I have done it in the past though at the domestic level. "No balls are something that hurts you as a team and it is something we hope to rectify and not repeat them in the next games". Phehlukwayo hit 23 off just five balls, swinging at everything with luster to hurry South Africa to victory. So that just changed up their lengths, and it suits me a little bit better.

"That was a phenomenal 16 overs".

In the 3rd day of the match, rain affected the ground and so, no play was possible in that very day. That's a good thing to see that our death bowling is picking up. "I think India were looking at 340 at some stage, so all credit needs to go to the bowlers to restrict them and get us back into the series", Klaasen said.
