Pollock said, as captain, Kohli is trying to instil new confidence in the team. Every since the third Test in Johannesburg it's been a good time for us. "It's been a collective effort and something we wanted to do badly", the captain added. After 25 years we have won a series in South Africa.

"For now, 4-1 feels unbelievable".

Meanwhile, Aiden Markram, the stand-in skipper in the absence of injured regular South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis, said, 'Pretty clear on what we want to do.

Sharma's 17 ODI hundred came at the expense of a couple of run-outs - both top-order batsmen Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, in 26 and 37 over of the innings, respectively. Shreyas Iyer contributed 30. Rohit, then 20, played a vital role in India's wins.

Fed speakers will get a lot of attention Thursday. "When that ball bounces out, it's going to spike", said Boockvar. Treasury bond yields have been so low that many stock dividends are paying better.

India's only failure in South Africa came in the fourth ODI, when South Africa took advantage in a rain-shortened game to pull one back and make it 3-1.

The two wrist spinners once again proved to be a revelation as none save Amla could read them properly from their wrists. His century, with 11 fours and four sixes, took India to 274-7 after being asked to bat first by South Africa.

While India were defeated 2-1 in their recent three-Test series against South Africa, they bounced back brilliantly in the ongoing ODI series as they secured their first-ever bilateral ODI series win in the country on Tuesday. The replays showed Amla was marginally short of the crease. Our spinners couldn't turn the ball or grip the ball the way they did in the last three matches. With his 15th century as the opener, Rohit has surpassed the record of Virender Sehwag who had hit 14 tons as an opener. He is now third behind Sachin Tendulkar (45 out of 49) and Sourav Ganguly (19 out of 22) with number of centuries as opener. Rohit, out six times in eight innings to Kagiso Rabada before this innings, got going by stepping out and sending the ball sailing over long-on, a stunning shot against the pace Rabada was generating. As he finally got runs in this series, Twitter erupted in joy and his fans are delighted. On the night, though, Chahal didn't have that control - again the wet ball plays a part - and Klaasen too got the better of him, mainly by targeting the tiny leg-side boundary. Rabada was all fired up to have picked Shikhar Dhawan.
