India vs South Africa Highlights 4th ODI: South Africa Beat India By 5 Wickets To Keep Series Alive
Highlights, India vs South Africa, 4th ODI: Heinrich Klaasen scored a blistering 43*, while David Miller chipped in with a 28-ball 39 as South Africa cruised to a five-wicket win (DLS) over India in the fourth One-Day International in Johannesburg on Saturday.
Heinrich Klaasen scored a blistering 43*, while David Miller chipped in with a 28-ball 39 as South Africa cruised to a five-wicket win (DLS) over India in the fourth One-Day International in Johannesburg on Saturday. South Africa were set a reduced target of 202 in 28 overs after rain interrupted the fourth ODI and overhauled the target in just 25.3 overs. Originally set to make 290 to win, South Africa were 43 for one when the umpires took the players off the field. It was the second weather interruption of the match. The revised target meant that South Africa needed to score another 159 runs in 20.4 overs. Earlier, opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan marked his 100th ODI with a brilliant 109 to take India to 289/7 in 50 overs. Dhawan, who hit his 13th century, shared a 158-run second-wicket stand with captain Virat Kohli (75) as a ruthless India showed strong intent to clinch the six-match series. India were cruising at 197/2 in 34 overs when the play was interrupted for nearly an hour due to lightning. After the play resumed, India lost the plot and lost wickets regularly to what looked an under-par total. (Scorecard)

This match is of vital importance for South Africa in their home season. It is the 'Pink ODI', played for the awareness against breast cancer and for the benefit of those suffering from the disease. It was first held in 2011, and this will be the sixth such occasion. In fact, the Proteas have never lost when playing in their unique pink jersey.
