Lucky David Miller combined with rain to defeat India, feels Shikhar Dhawan

Lucky David Miller combined with rain to defeat India, feels Shikhar Dhawan

Even Dhoni could only get seven runs off 10 balls in the head-to-head. Klaasen who hammered unbeaten 43 off 27 in pressure cooker situation was adjudged man of the match. Iyer hopped and fended but the ball went off his splice and just past the first slip fielder.

Previously, Sourav Ganguly was the last Indian to miss out on the milestone, after getting dismissed on 97 in a 1999 World Cup match against South Africa in Hove.

South Africa recognised their chance, which was a miracle in itself considering Virat Kohli has had them under his thumb this series.

The 26-year-old wicketkeeper/batsman also described the effort of the bowlers in limiting India to 289 after they were 200 for two in 34.2 overs when the storm arrived as "phenomenal".

Kohli had a narrow escape after bringing up his fifty, a leading edge slipping through the grasp of Morne Morkel as he dived to his right on his follow through, but the India captain was denied a 35th ODI century when he sent Chris Morris to cover.

Trump tweeted Friday morning that he had signed the bill , writing that the US military "will now be stronger than ever before". Paul spoke out over the increased deficits and told everyone he would be willing to cause a shutdown .

The Pink Day ODI is always synonymous with pieces of individual brilliance, which in the past de Villiers provided with his brilliant batting, but this time that accolade belonged to Markram who took a blinder of a catch to dismiss Hardik Pandya and shifted the momentum in the Proteas favour. On the other hand, South Africa will be boosted with the comeback of their star player AB de Villiers into the side. This partnership has been so crucial for India in all the ODIs so far.

A couple of balls later, Miller was once again at the receiving end of some serendipity. Kohli noted how conditions had worked against his team as India scored just 89 in 16.3 overs after the first interruption.

Having won the first three ODIs in the six-match series, a win on Saturday would seal the bilateral ODI series for India - first on South African soil. But came to bat at their opening match, South AFrica could not play the whole first day but in 73.1 overs they got packet. The second-wicket partnership was worth 78 runs with Jean Paul Duminy scoring 51. He also said it became hard for the spin twins to "grip and turn" the ball after the rain break. India have only won once back in 2011, courtesy Munaf Patel's heroics as South Africa lost by 1 run while chasing only 190. The leg-spinner bowled a lovely delivery to castle David Miller.Alas, it turned out to be a no-ball and the left-hander duly capitalised by compiling the game-changing partnership with Heinrich Klaasen. We don't know when the thunderstorms are going to hit. AB de Villiers, who averages 112.50 in five Pink ODIs, replaced Khaya Zondo in the Proteas' XI.

South Africa's pacemen adopted a successful strategy of aggressive short bowling and, although Dhoni managed a run-a-ball 42 not out, India were never able to get on top of the bowling.

The African team began their reply but were soon confronted by the two Indian wrist spinners Kuldip Yadav and Yuzavendra Chahal. Kohli will hope his team get their A game back on in the next ODI because this certainly wasn't it.
