In fact, in five previous ODI outings in Port Elizabeth, India have never scored 200 runs here as 176 against South Africa in October 2001 is their highest total yet.

It was another impressive performance from the tourists, and their captain Virat Kohli was quick to praise the contribution of his players after India claimed a maiden ODI series win on South African soil.

Team South Africa led a resurgent fightback against the Indian team - who were gung-ho after a hat-trick of victories - in the fourth One Day International (ODI) at Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav scalped three wickets in his tenth over when he dismissed Kasigo Rabada, Klaasen and Tabriaz Shamsi to signal India's win. Virat Kohli has earned all the runs he has scored, but in contrast to Rohit's series so far, the small margins have gone his way. A relaxed Rohit, a contrast in that regard to how India play their cricket and speak in the media, could sit back and be self-deprecating: "Yaar [friend], before that two guys had got run out in front of me, so what was there to celebrate?" Ngidi took four wickets for South Africa which started the chase very well as the openers put on 52 runs. David Miller (36) and Klaasen (39) were the other top contributors.

At the other end, South Africa's stand-in skipper Aiden Markram conceded India were superior than the hosts and deserved the win.

Rohit who won the man-of-the-match award dedicated the hundred to his wife on Valentine's day.

One can't ignore Hardik Pandya's contribution as his all-round skill sets came into good effect.

But the hosts were 65-3 when AB de Villiers went cheaply after a rash shot in the 13th over and once Hashim Amla departed for 71 after a needless run out, home hopes were dashed. Rohit Sharma was the architect of India's 274 run score while batting first before the wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav once again blitzed past the lower middle order to seal the win.

South Africa Women: Dane van Niekerk (C), Marizanne Kapp, Trisha Chetty, Shabnim Ismail, Ayabonga Khaka, Masabata Klaas, Sune Luus, Odine Kirsten, Mignon du Preez, Lizelle Lee, Chloe Tryon, Nadine de Klerk, Raisibe Ntozakhe, Moseline Daniels. But one can not take away the pressure that Chahal keeps building from the other end. It was Bhuvneshwar Kumar's 19 off 20 balls that took India past 270-run mark. When play resumed, India needed 123 off 87 balls with Kohli scrapping away. "I am sure he will chill out a little more as he gets a little bit older".
