Indian opener Rohit Sharma was dismissed for mere 16 by fast-bowler Kyle Abbott after being caught by Imran Tahir at third man, during their chase against South Africa in the fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday. It was a length ball from Abbott as Rohit came down the track to go for a pull. However, the ball takes the top edge, flies into the air only to be set up a comfortable catch for Tahir, who comes in just from the third-man boundary. Currently, India are 27 for the loss of a wicket with opener Shikhar Dhawan on 11 and Virat Kohli coming in. LIVE SCORECARD: India vs South Africa 2015, 5th ODI at Mumbai
