Proteas beat India in nail-biting finish

Earlier, India won the toss and opted to bat against South Africa in the fourth ODI.

This is turning out to be yet another Dhawar-Kohli special.

In the Cape Town ODI, his unbeaten 160 was his 34th century in just 205 ODIs.

Shikhar Dhawan completes his 26th ODI fifty as India take control of the match.

Kohli was content to play the supporting role in a second wicket stand of 140 with Shikhar Dhawan, who pounded 12 fours in making 76 off 63 balls.

Israel hits Syrian targets after F-16 crashes in anti-aircraft fire
The Israeli military said early assessments indicated the jet had been shot down by Syrian fire, but this was still unconfirmed. "This is not the first time that we have warned you of Iran's unsafe actions that undermine the situation in our region".

Kohli was gutted to have lost, and said: "The second innings, we got a difference of 35 between runs and balls".

Rohit Sharma's poor form with the bat continues as he departs early for just 5 runs.

Kagiso Rabada and Lungisani Ngidi were the best bowlers for South Africa.

India, who suffered their first loss of the tour, were 240 all out following half centuries from Deepti Sharma (79) and Veda Krishnamurthy (56). India had previously broken into unchartered territory at Newlands when, for the first time since they began touring here in 1992-93, they won three matches in a bilateral ODI engagement in South Africa.

De Villiers, who was rested for the first three ODIs due to injury, is now in the pink of his health for the Pink ODI. The tourists made one change, bringing in Shreyas Iyer for the injured Kedar Jadhav.

South Africa should not expect AB de Villiers' pending return to be the solution to all their problems against spin, says former Proteas wrist spinner Paul Adams.

BJP meets Odisha CEO, demands dismissal of 4 officials including Pandian
One omission in the list is Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh, whose name the party has dropped from the said list. Patnaik condemning the attack, told the media, "It is shocking and that too from a national party".

The match will kick-start at 4:30 PM IST on 10th February 2018. Previous year in September, it was Australia's David Warner, playing in his 100th ODI, notched up a century against India in Bengaluru.

India now leads the series 3-1 with the remaining matches to be played at St.George's Park on Tuesday and at SuperSport Park on Friday.

A victory will also help the visitors topple the Proteas to bag the number one stop in the ICC ODI team rankings.

Previously, Sourav Ganguly was the last Indian to miss out on the milestone, after getting dismissed on 97 in a 1999 World Cup match against South Africa in Hove. On resumption, the bowlers hit their groove much quicker than the batsmen, and with both Dhawan and Rahane falling soon, India had to contend with a fired up bowling unit against their middle order.

David Miller (39 from 28 balls) survived being bowled by leg-spinner Chahal off a no-ball when he had seven and put on a crucial stand of 72 in 41 balls for the fifth wicket with the impressive Heinrich Klaasen (43 not out in 27 balls) that turned the tide in the favour of the home side. Out of a total of 4 times, South Africa and India have faced each other at this venue.
