South Africa kept the 6-match ODI series against India alive by winning the Pink ODI by 5 wickets. With the series still reading 3-1 in favour of India, the visitors remain in the position to complete the unprecedented bilateral series win in South Africa as they head into the fifth game at St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth. The live telecast of fourth ODI will be available on Sony Ten 1 and Sony Ten 1 HDSony Ten 3 and Sony Ten 3 HD will telecast the match with Hindi commentary. The live streaming of the same will be available on SonyLiv.

India’s Port Elizabeth record is up against them. They have lost all 5 matches here, making it their worst performance on a single ground anywhere in the world. But a confident India under Virat Kohli can change that. Kohli, with 393 runs in the ODI series so far, has led from the front to heap trouble on a depleted South African side. Shikhar Dhawan has looked in fine nick and will be the key to give India a dominant total on board. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have troubled the hosts with their spin and will be India’s main bowling weapons.

In only his second ODI, Heinrich Klaasen had guided South Africa to a comprehensive victory in the rain-curtailed encounter in Johannesburg. He will look to continue his good form, while AB de Villiers will continue to boost them. However, the weather may play spoilsport. Rains are predicted for the morning.
