Heinrich Klaasen: I didn't have tickets to come to the 'Pink Day'

Virat Kohli wrist spinners dazzle in India's 124-run win over South Africa take unassailable 3-0 lead

Virat Kohli rued his team's misfortune but admitted that South Africa were deserving winners as they showed a lot of character during their five-wicket win in the fourth ODI here.

It was a sobering night for the spinners, but also one in which they were thrown into the deep end.

However, her opening partner Poonam Raut has had a quiet series so far and would like to make amends. Soon after the reprieve, the southpaw smashed Pandya for three successive boundaries and his fine hitting form rubbed on to wicketkeeper-batsman Heinrich Klaasen as well. He became the first Indian to score a hundred in his 100 match.

South Africa chased down a revised target of 202, ultimately easily, after David Miller was bowled off a no-ball, given a life, and used it crack a match-turning 39 from 28 balls. So, India was about to chase a poor score but bowlers did their job very well in the match.

The saviour of India was old war-horse, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who remained not out 42 off 43 deliveries.

It's not so much the cost of the tickets as the demand for them, but a fortnight ago Heinrich Klaasen had told his girlfriend they could not go to PinkDay at the Wanderers when South Africa took on India in the fourth ODI.

Kuldeep was the most successful bowler with two wickets, while Chahal, Bumrah and Pandya claimed one wicket each.

Similarly for South Africa, the win means a lot. Especially against good spinners, it's hard to hit them down the ground if you don't use your feet well. At one point, he was 85 off only 75 balls, with flicks reminiscent of Sanath Jayasuriya and drives - the first one especially - that could fit into a Matthew Hayden highlight reel.

But with India on 197 for 2 in the 35th over, a break in play for almost an hour upset the momentum to such an extent that their top-scorer ended up spooning a catch to mid-off seven balls after play resumed.

Ajinkya Rahane was the next man to join Dhawan at the crease but the players were taken off with heavy lightening in Johannesburg. They replaced their visiting at Sri Lanka due to some internal problems and so, in the meantime, they are playing against India. Except Faf du Plessis to an extent, none of the South African batsmen had any clue against the spinners in the first three matches.

Rabada had a lower-middle order in front of him. There are times in Test cricket when Dhawan seems to struggle with the short ball or the movement but he is a different batsman in ODIs.

The pair managed 158 runs in just 27 overs. There was also a delay in India's innings for weather. South Africa's stand-in captain was at cover when a full-blooded slash came his way.

Like Dhoni, the mental side of the game is something Klaasen works on rigorously. Team India once again faced batting disaster in the game and lost all wickets in 135 runs. Kohli has thus far scored 393 runs in the series with the scores of 112, 46*, 160* and 75 in the first four ODIs.
