India wins 5th ODI against South Africa by 73 runs, clinches series 41
Team India created history by winning its first ever series across formats on the South African soil as they registered a convincing 73-run win over South Africa in the fifth ODI thereby taking an unassailable 4-1 lead in the six-match ODI series. No Indian men's side since its first tour in South Africa back in 1992, has ever won a series across any format but this side led-by their inspirational skipper Virat Kohli proved why they are the best in the business. Rohit Sharma came good when it ultimately mattered as he scored 115 in India's tricky total of 274 for 7 on a sluggish St George's Park wicket. South Africa did put up a fight before wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal once again wreaked havoc after a rare off-day in the previous game.
