Abdv came in and showed the rest of South African batsman  chahal and the spinners aint ****. That was the turning point

You think it is that easy to play spin? Just by hitting sixes others can copy that? lol Why couldn't he show that to others in India?  Because he himself has struggled against spin at times. This was a super flat wicket with rain. He just hit through the line.

Southafricas  7/0 on Pink day 

 

I think rohits wicket and  Chahals spell cost India game koz sOA at one stage were 104 for 4 

 

If Rohit spank couple of sixes in his mini knock we still win 

Now India must win one out of two 

 

Congratulations Southafrica and Klassen (43*)

 so small ground here bad luck India not sends Rohit at 4 for just 6 hits instead freaking Rahane, ABD hits 44 ball 149 here in international with 16 sixes but he Was very inspirationa,l specially  for Andy who hits 3 sixes.

Why no one questioning team selection? We got lucky with pitches suiting spinners in first three games. Wanderers was always going to be a different ball game.

We choked with the bat which cost us some extra runs. Also wet conditions cost our spinners the grip of the ball and hence you saw so many shot balls from Chahal in particular.

 

Pacers also go for a lot of runs on this same track. Yes we could have played on extra seamer. But rain played part with bowlers not able to grip properly and also India batting crap in the last 10 overs.

Every one knew it's going to rain, we still went with two spinners. They are very  selective with Horses for courses strategy.

Actually its better now than before. In the past we have played spinner in Wanderers even in test matches. At least now they started going for all out pace attacks like we did in the 3rd test.

 

Shami should play a game now, Bhuvi or Bumrah must be tired by now or should be rotated at some point.

Selection should be based on the conditions.

With rain, the ball was getting wet. It does makes tough to grip and the spinners are affected due to this. Having said that they picked some wickets and they also created wicket of Miller which the pathetic fielding by Shreyas helped Miller survive and build the match winning partnership for SA. Shreyas did not show any signs that the ball was wet after he dropped the match. Also spinners were not seen using the cloth to wipe the ball. Which suggests that the outfield did not affect the ball much.

Spinners do generally struggle here and are easier to hit.

I already told you bro, we dropped catches, bowled no balls to give you a consolation win and keep the series exciting, don't be too happy :aha:

Looks like Ailiaaa chamcha is happy IND lost just because Kohli was about to win a series in RSA with average around 200...which your ailiaaa couldn't do in his whole life:cantstop:

Had Shreyas hold that catch, it would have increased our chances of wins. I don't blame bowler because of pathetic fielding. 2 spinners have taken more wickets than our 3 Pacers did yesterday. Our spin attack has out performed pace attack by miles in this series.

Umpire I think stops the games at India 200 for 2 when it’s NO RAIN at all.only Lighning was there but Actual rains starts during SOA innings but I am not sure if Umpire allows to stops games OTHER THAN RAINS 

Any comments ?

 

SOA win as many as 20 times ( out of 39 ) at port Elizabeth, next venue - for 5th ODI 

Even Kenya beat India at Port Elizabeth in 2001

Kohli won the toss... Got too cocky to select bat first... or maybe it was intentional even after bowing the wether forecast...

Which team prefers to bat first winning the toss even after knowing rain is on the cards?

Just for those who asked why the game was stopped for lightning before the rain started. 

in South Africa any outdoor sport is stopped when a lightning storm approaches. 

We have had whole soccer teams taken down by lightning as well as rugby players

Its for that past experiences that they do not allow play to commence while lightning is close. Player safety. Lightning in SA can be extremely dangerous for sports people. 

This rule in SA overrides any international sports rules about weather.
