(India vs South Africa, Live Cricket & Live Streaming 1st T20I) Another one-way traffic and the series ended as it was expected, 5-1 in favour of India! A win at the Bullring turned out to be an aberration and if not for the rain that evening, the outcome of this series could have been a clean sweep. Hats off to India for putting up yet another professional show. It was an inconsequential game but they still brought their best game. There was plenty of intensity on the field and they bowled exceedingly well to bundle out South Africa for a paltry total. In reply, they did lose Rohit Sharma early but then the skipper, the chase master, combined forces first with Shikhar Dhawan and then with Ajinkya Rahane to see India home. In the process, many records tumbled in front of Virat and the most notable one was him getting 500-plus runs in the series, which is the most by any player in a bilateral ODI series.

South Africa were once again outplayed in every facet of the game. Their batting showed no spine while the bowlers didn't have any answer (yet again) to the might of Virat Kohli. Two things which troubled them the most in this series - Wrist spinners and Virat Kohli. Clueless is the word to describe their plight. Lacked skills to deal with Kuldeep and Chahal, while didn't have enough quality to deal with the Indian skipper. Plenty of soul-searching to do.

    Man of the Match and Series, Virat Kohli is really elated with the win. Starts the interview saying he was feeling great from the word go today.

Thanks to the people who are close to him and appreciates his wife for motivating him always as she was criticized in the past for his failure.

    South Africa skipper, Aiden Markram says it's a tough loss for them to gulp down. States they would sit down and think what went wrong.

Hopes for a good show in the T20Is and is confident of his boys to come out good. Is happy to have a break from the 50-overs cricket now.

    FOUR! Kohli hits it with authority and INDIA WIN BY 8 WICKETS (with 107 balls left)! Tahir tosses it up in the air and lands it full around off, the Indian skipper muscles it straight back past the bowler for a boundary. A warm hug from Kohli to de Villiers, they share a special bond and have tremendous respect for each other. Two of the very best in the business.

    DROPPED! Andile Phehlukwayo, the culprit. Full marks to the effort though. A mistimed lofted shot by Kohli, he attempted to go inside-out over extra cover but ended up slicing it over covers. Andile rushed in from the deep, put in the dive but failed to hold onto the catch. A single taken.

    WICKET! Ngidi removes Dhawan for 18 runs. Straight to Zondo! Ngidi strikes again.. It was hit really hard but straight to the man and Dhawan wears a smile as he starts to walk back. A bit short and a width on offer too. Shikhar slaps it ferociously but fails to keep it down. It travels quickly towards Khaya Zondo at backward point who makes it look so easy. End of a cracking stand between the two and India need another 125.​ IND 80/2, need 125 runs to win.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 9:41 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    50 up for India! Two consecutive boundaries lift India to 52/1 in 7.5 overs. FOUR! Shot! This time off the sweet spot! Ngidi pounds in another short ball but without much venom. Virat rocks back and pulls it with aplomb over deep square leg for a one-bounce boundary.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 9:19 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    FOUR! Deft! South Africa are leaking way too many at the moment! Back of a length ball outside off, Kohli waits and at the last moment tries to run it down. Gets it off the outer portion of the bat but wide of the second slip fielder for back-to-back boundaries.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 9:08 PM IST)

    Just two runs from the over. Morne Morkel to Virat Kohli, no run. Hangs back to a length ball and defends it down solidly.​ IND 22/1 in 5 overs.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 9:04 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    WICKET! Lungi Ngidi removes Rohit Sharma for 15. Off the gloves and Rohit Sharma perishes! We saw Amla gloving one down the leg side, this is almost identical to his wicket. Short of a length delivery, kicking off the deck but the line is around the leg stump. Rohit Sharma, who is too good a puller tries to go after this with his one leg up in the air. Extra bounce of the surface means that he fails to get the desired connection as the ball lobs off the gloves towards the left of the keeper where Klaasen pouches it safely.​ IND 19/1 in 3.4 overs, need 186 runs to win vs SA (204).

  • (16 Feb 2018, 8:53 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    Ngidi concludes a maiden over. Lungi Ngidi to Shikhar Dhawan, no run. Pitches it further up outside off, Shikhar doesn't play at it. A maiden for Ngidi to begin with.​ IND 9/0 in 2 overs.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 8:48 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    EDGED, BUT RUNS! Rohit gets some bonus runs. Edge and it flies through. Rohit Sharma is off the mark in an unconvincing manner. Fuller in length and nipping back in just a shade, Rohit looks to flick but gets a leading edge which is quick to fly right between second slip and gully to the third man fence for a boundary.​

  • (16 Feb 2018, 8:47 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    We are back for the run chase. Considering the way the series has panned out, should be a stroll in the park for the Men in Blue. Out walk Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan to open the batting. Morne Morkel to run in first up. He has a couple of slips in place.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 8:00 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    OUT! Thakur removes Phehlukwayo for 34 runs. South Africa all out for 204 runs in 46.5 overs vs India in Centurion. Caught and bowled! Four-fer for Thakur! He bowls a length ball on middle, it holds up a bit onto the batsman who offers a straight bat. Ends up pushing it uppishly towards the bowler who dives to his right to take an excellent catch.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 7:59 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    SIX! Phehlukwayo continues to delight from the other end. SA cross 200-mark. Another big hit! This time it's a short ball on middle, Andile rides the bounce and powers his pull shot over fine leg for a biggie. 200 up for South Africa!​ SA 204/9 in 46.3 overs.

    Imran Tahir OUT! Soft dismissal! Full ball outside off, Tahir gets forward and is early into his drive. Fails to get any sort of timing and pushes it aerially towards short cover. Kohli takes a good catch diving forward.

    OUT! Pandya removes Morkel for 20 runs. Morkel is disappointed with himself as he walks back. A short of a length delivery around off, Morkel stands tall inside the crease and slaps it in the air over covers. The ball finds Shreyas Iyer with precision in the deep. A handy cameo comes to an end!​ South Africa 187/8 in 43.4 overs vs India in Centurion.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 7:40 PM IST)

    SIX! Morkel hits it over the mid-wicket. Wow, Morne Morkel is having fun. Receives one full ball in his half, winds up for a big shot and hammers it over mid-wicket for a biggie.​

    A boundary concludes the 42nd over by Pandya. Dhawan gifts a boundary! He wants runs on the board so that he can score them later. A low full toss around off, Phehlukwayo walks across the stumps and whips it wide of long on. Dhawan chases it to his left, does well to stop it with a slide but then ends up flicking it behind the rope. Bonus runs.​

  • (16 Feb 2018, 7:33 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    Seems like Kohli's plan didn't work to the fullest. Andile Phehlukwayo and Morne Morkel lead Proteas' resistance.

    4 runs from the over. End of spinners' spells. Yuzvendra Chahal to Andile Phehlukwayo, 1 run. Phehlukwayo has driven it through mid off. One run added to the total. 10-0-38-2, Chahal is bowled out as well. SA 166/7 in 41 overs. 

  • (16 Feb 2018, 7:25 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    NOT OUT! Yuzvendra Chahal to Morne Morkel, no run. MISSING LEG! Morkel survives! A nicely tossed up leg spinner landing full on off, Morkel kneels to play the slog sweep but misses. He is hit on the pads, Chahal appeals and appeals and finally succeeds in getting the finger up from umpire Aleem Dar. Morkel takes the help of the DRS and they go upstairs. The Ultra Edge shows a little bit of spike but it's of the ball hitting the deck not the under edge of the bat. Now, after taking quite a while we get the Ball Tracker. It shows that the impact is in line but the ball is turning in too much and would have missed the leg stump. Aleem Dar smiles. Maybe, he took that long and was not very sure. But then gave in to the appeal. Anyway, a correct decision has been made, thanks to the technology.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 7:24 PM IST)

    Shout for an lbw, finger goes up after the completion of the appeal and Morkel takes the referral.

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    SIX! Morkel takes complete advantage of his height. No bowler likes to get hit over his head, at least not while bowling to a tailender. But Morkel has done it. He gets forward with a big stride and muscles it down the ground for a biggie. 'Ab nahi maarega' (won't hit now) words of encouragement by MS Dhoni from behind the stumps. SA 157/7 in 37.5 overs.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 7:15 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    OUT! Chahal removes Zondo for 54 runs. Khaya Zondo departs after playing a knock which will do good to his career not that much good to his team. South Africa needed him to last the distance. Another inside-out shot attempted by him, last time he went over extra cover but this time it's a bit squarer. Finds the fielder in the deep cover region and Hardik Pandya makes no mistake. Can they last 50 overs?​ South Africa 151/7 in 37 overs vs India in Centurion.

    FIFTY! Khaya Zondo hits maiden ODI fifty off 67 balls. South Africa 143/6 in 33.5 overs vs India in Centurion.​ An innings which started with a lot of positivity and intent surprisingly slipped into a slumber. He spent an eternity in the 40s before getting to the milestone. It's a gentle push down to long off for a run. He needs to stay there till the end now.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 6:56 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    OUT! Kuldeep removes Morris for 4 runs.  That's a horrible shot and Morris will be kicking himself. Kuldeep outfoxes him this time. The last ball turned back into the batsman and this one leaves him after landing on a fuller length around middle. Morris without paying much attention to the type of delivery, tries to heave it across the line over the leg side. His power is there but the away spin has brought his downfall. He skies a catch towards long off and Dhawan runs forward a bit from the deep to catch it safely. It's going the same way for South Africa as has been the trend. South Africa 142/6 in 33.3 overs vs India in Centurion.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 6:50 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    Time for drinks! All going at a snail's pace for South Africa. There has been a drop in intensity and India have left no stone unturned in choking the flow of runs. The regular fall of wickets has not helped them either. Let's see how they finish.​

  • (16 Feb 2018, 6:44 PM IST)

    Live Updates, India vs South Africa 6th ODI

    OUT! Thakur removes Behardien for 1 run. Another ordinary choice of shot and Behardien is on his bike. But, what a catch by Bumrah in the deep! Tremendous catching by the Indians, they are not letting the intensity drop even in this inconsequential contest. Thakur digs in a short delivery around off, Behardien goes on his toes as he tries to slash it over point. But he fails to control his shot and execution is very poor. It flies in the air off the outer half of the bat and Bumrah takes a stupendous catch running to his right from third man. South Africa 136/5 in 31.2 overs vs India in Centurion.

  • (16 Feb 2018, 6:39 PM IST)

    OUT! Bumrah removes Klaasen for 22 runs. Great reflex catch by the Indian skipper! After bowling a couple of heavy balls, Bumrah tries the slower one and dishes it full and wide outside off. Klaasen senses the opportunity to blast it through the line but fails to beat the fielder at short cover. It's struck ferociously but Kohli stationed there grabs a terrific low catch. Made that look ridiculously easy. Another blow to South Africa as they lose a positive looking batsman in Heinrich Klaasen.​ South Africa 135/4 in 30.3 overs vs India in Centurion.

    FOUR! Klaasen hits a classic shot here. Now, take that for a response from Klaasen. Once again he is quick to pick the short ball and nails his pull shot to the deep mid-wicket fence. Bumrah has a smile on his face. 8 from the over, more like a drop of water in desert. SA 129/3 in 29 overs.

He got unlucky in the previous over when the LBW decision was overturned but now he has got the big fish. AB de Villiers backs away but Chahal smartly bowls a flatter and quicker one on the stumps. It skids off the surface, goes underneath the bat of the big man and pegs the leg stump back. Disappointment for AB, rejoice for the Indians. The stand that was blooming has been cut short at the right time.​ South Africa 105/3 in 20.5 overs vs India in Centurion.

    SIX! Zondo strikes two sixes after being given not out. Hundred up for SA in 19 overs. And again! This is even big. Zondo has picked the bones outta that one. 100 is up for South Africa and Zondo gets a fist punch from de Villiers. Another one on the shorter side, it's googly which went horribly wrong. Khaya rocks back and smokes it over deep mid-wicket for the second maximum of the over. 12 runs off the over!​

    Yuzvendra Chahal to Khaya Zondo, NOT OUT! INSIDE EDGE! Spotted on Ultra Edge! Chahal keeps it really full on the stumps, Zondo gets down to play the sweep but seems to have missed it completely to get hit on the pads. A loud appeal to which umpire Dar raises his finger. Zondo takes the review. Ultra Edge shows a spike as the ball passes the gloves. So the on-field call has to be overturned. Zondo survives!

    Zondo is given out LBW but he is quick to take the DRS. Maybe, he has got an inside edge...

    OUT! Thakur removes Markram for 24 runs. What a catch! Shreyas Iyer takes a stunner here. Shardul Thakur gets his second and he is absolutely pumped up. It's the cutter, served a bit wider on off, Markram couldn't resist and looks to thrash it over cover. Doesn't get complete hold on this as Iyer stationed there, times his leap to perfection to take a lovely catch. He dropped a few in the series already but this should please him. So, both the South African openers are back inside the first Powerplay.​ South Africa 43/2 in 9.5 overs vs India in Centurion.

    Shardul Thakur removes Hashim Amla for 10 runs. Caught by MS Dhoni. Amla walks off! Shardul Thakur is off for a celebratory run as he draws first blood. But to be honest this wasn't a wicket-taking delivery by any means. Short ball, angling down leg, Amla walks across to help it on its way down to fine leg. Ends up gloving it towards Dhoni who moves swiftly to his left to take a regulation catch. Amla's poor run in the series continues.​ SA 23/1 in 6.3 overs.

Go around but luckily for the Protea skipper, it evades a leaping Chahal at mid-wicket who isn't the tallest in the opposition. A boundary results!​ SA 18/0 in 4.5 overs.

    FOUR! In the air... but in the gap too! First boundary for Amla! Thakur keeps it full outside off, asks the batsman to go after it who obliges. Amla leans ahead and lifts it over covers.
