India vs South Africa 4th ODI: Probable Playing XI

Even on the day when the middle-order left them high and dry, India's bowlers pulled things back and made the win seem like a walk in the park. The former skipper slammed a memorable 44-ball 149 against West Indies in 2015. Whether the statement was justified or not is a debate for another day, but hardly a couple of weeks later, in the absence of arguably their best batsman, runs have deserted the South African ODI side, which is why the return of de Villiers is of paramount importance to Markram and his men. He averages 51.80 versus India (43.45 at home).

Tendulkar was no doubt India's biggest match-winner for a quarter of a century and we all appreciate his talent, but you cannot dispute stats and hard data and it's not Kohli's fault that he did not face Wasim Akram, Courtney Walsh, Curtly Ambrose, Waqar Younis, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Shaun Pollock, Allan Donald and you can only play what's in front of you. They lead 4-2 after being 0-2 down at one stage.

Duminy said with three matches remaining the series is not yet over and the hosts would need to do some series thinking before the fourth ODI. The gamble is more likely to pay off rather than laying out a dry wicket which is bound to assist the spin twins- who've ran through the inexperienced South African lineups. There's no doubt that we will reconvene after this game and break down where we are going wrong. In addition, he had few notable scores against Australia in dire circumstances.

South Africa, which had beaten India in the World Cup previous year, has not been able to compete with the sub-continental side in its own backyard. He, for the same reason, found the going tough in the third ODI. The series might be lost but it's still worth two more points, and South Africa will have to lift their game drastically in the short turnaround time to prevent the embarrassment of whitewash that could potentially risk the goodwill built around their World Cup success.

88 - MS Dhoni needs another 88 runs to complete 10000 runs in the ODI format. Of these, 174 runs have representing Asia XI. The spin stranglehold has been India's x-factor, but that combined with the success of the strike bowlers has put India on cusp of history. AB de Villiers had started the ODI series well with a fluent 65 but failed in the second game.
