Virat Kohli terms ODI series victory as 'collective effort'

You need to have two practice matches and have a guarantee that you are genuinely good opposition than just developing players. From a position of strength, the Men In Blue found themselves in a spot of bother within a few overs. "It's a must-win game for them, we have the lead and the advantage so we would like to put some decent runs on the board for them to chase down".

It will be intriguing to see how Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal tackle the Proteas batting-line up, who countered the Indian spin duo easily in the last match.

WICKET! Lungi Ngidi has just removed Hardik Pandya, who departs for a golden duck. This is the first time India have won an ODI series in South Africa in five attempts.

South Africa's stand-in captain Aiden Markram won the toss and opted to bowl against India in the fifth ODI of the six-match rubber at the St George's Park here on Tuesday.

Omarosa says she was 'haunted by tweets'
Omarosa resigned from her post at the White House in December amid rumors that she had been fired by chief of staff Gen. She responds that she saw it as a duty to her country and not as a duty to President Donald Trump .

The recent history which has seen India losing against the Proteas in the 50-over format at the South African conditions could change under the flamboyant captaincy of Virat Kohli.

"We want more finishers, we want to train and groom more finishers". In the end, the opposition team was reduced to 201 runs in 42.2 overs.

India's generally average catching day could have ended on a rather comical note right at the end when Hardik Pandya chose to chase a high ball from mid-off when Shikhar Dhawan from long-on looked poised to settle under it.

Asked about Kohli's aggressive brand of leadership, the former South African skipper said, "I am not saying aggression is what he is offering, but it's more the attitude that I can back myself, win the battle and come out on top".

Twitter reports its first-ever profit, but user numbers have stalled
Wall Street now has an average target price of $21.77 for the stock - 45% below the stock's opening price of $34.45 Thursday. Its net income - a first in the company's almost 12-year history - was $91 million, or 12 cents per share.

Toss: South Africa won the toss and chose to Field. This hasn't been much different from playing Sri Lanka at home with South Africa missing several big names in their batting but the return of AB de Villiers should boost the Proteas and also test India more.

Leg-spinner Imran Tahir has been left out while Tabraiz Shamsi has been roped in the squad. After this series is wrapped up we'll sit down and think about where to improve.

Virat Kohli's form in the ODI series has been one of the highlights for India, and a reason for its triumph. If you look at the entire ODI series, it was a dominant performance for us. Lungisani Ngidi took 4 wickets for South Africa.

Equally well complimented bowling department, led by the wrist spinning pair of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who have been hard to be picked up by South Africa throughout the series, will continue to be the lethal weapons for India.
