That's it from us in our coverage of the fifth one-dayer between South Africa and India at Port Elizabeth, with Virat Kohli and company pulling off a comprehensive 73-run win to clinch the series — their first on South African soil! Even though the final match, that takes place at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday, has been reduced to a dead rubber, trust the Indians to not lose out on their intensity as they will be gunning for a 5-1 result, one that will go a long way in establishing them as a leading side in the world. 

But for now, it's time for me, Amit, to sign off. On behalf of my colleague Devdutt, as well as our contributor in South Africa Chetan Narula, I bid you all good night!

India have now 30 international matches in South Africa - the most among all Asian teams eclipsing Pakistan (29).

This is India's ninth consecutive bi-lateral ODI series win. They have not lost a bilateral ODI series since February, 2016.

The last time South Africa lost a bilateral ODI series of more than five matches at home was against Australia (5-1) in 2002.

Virat Kohli, Indian captain: Very pleased. I though the guys stuck in with the bat and the ball. We had confidence in ourselves as a group. Feels wonderful to create history and the guys worked hard for it. Feels wonderful to be 4-1 up. We've got to sit down and think of the points to improve on. Ultimately, every team has a vision for 2019 going forward. We want to win 5-1 for sure, that doesn't change at all. There might be a scenario for others to get a chance (though). 

00:12 (IST)

Rohit Sharma is the Man of the Match. 

Rohit Sharma: Long time coming. Had a good time in the middle. What was important was for me was to bat for as long as possible, and get the team to a good total. It's always a good feeling when you score a hundred and your teams wins. Gotta keep yourself in a good frame of mind  and that's what I've been doing. I knew I don't have to change a lot and the runs will come. We were in a bit of bother (early on) and it was important for me to bat long. I'm glad we could put up the runs on the board and come out and defend it. It's been the hallmark of our team that once you get in, you make it count at the top 3. 

00:11 (IST)

Aiden Markram, South African captain: Firstly credit goes to the Indian side. Unfortunately we lost wickets in clumps. We have to give them credit, they played incredibly well. We managed to restrict them to less than what we would've liked, and we would've needed a couple of partnerships and a cameo to get over the line. We're going to have to find a way to build partnerships. India have bowled well, but I still believe the more we play them, the better we get. Plenty to be gained (from the last ODI). Will look to end the series on a positive note. 

00:06 (IST)
And there it is... what a series' win this from India. The Men in Blue have certain shortcomings with both bat and ball, but this has been a complete performance through the series. What rampant victory... 4-1 with a game to play. Historic!

Among the list of firsts for the Indian team, this also happens to be the first ODI series victory for the Indian team!

After 42.2 overs,South Africa 201/10 ( Lungi Ngidi 4 , )

Morkel pats the ball straight into the hands of Chahal off the first ball, with the latter putting the chance down. The leg-spinner however, doesn't have to wait long for the final wicket of the innings, as the lanky batsmen gets trapped leg-before the very next delivery, for the South African innings to come to an end. Was a complete collapse of sorts for the Proteas towards the end, as they lose their last four wickets for just five runs! 

India, meanwhile, have clinched the series 4-1 with a 73-run win at Port Elizabeth — their first-ever win at the venue! And with that, they have sealed the No 1 spot in the ICC ODI rankings

After 42 overs,South Africa 201/9 ( Morne Morkel 1 , Lungi Ngidi 4)

Kuldeep is brought back for his final over, and he gets a second wicket off the second delivery of the over, as Rabada holes out to Chahal at short midwicket. Morkel walks out to bat at No 9, and gets a single right away. Klaasen attempts a slog down the ground off the next delivery, misses, and gets stumped thanks to Dhoni's swift glovework. Shamsi, batting at No 9, doesn't last beyond a delivery as he mis-hits the ball towards long-on where Pandya nearly collides with Dhawan, whilst pulling off a superb one-handed catch. Ngidi walks out to bat, and smacks the ball down the ground to get off the mark with a boundary. Five runs and three wickets off the over, as Kuldeep signs off with figures of 4/57.

India vs South Africa, 5th ODI in Port Elizabeth, latest update: Morkel pats the ball straight into the hands of Chahal off the first ball, with the latter putting the chance down. The leg-spinner however, doesn't have to wait long for the final wicket of the innings, as the lanky batsmen gets trapped leg-before the very next delivery, for the South African innings to come to an end.

Preview: Failing to maintain their triumphant run after a defeat in the fourth One-Day International (ODI), India will aim to clinch their maiden bilateral 50-overs series against the Proteas in South African conditions in the fifth encounter on Tuesday.

India started on the front foot clinching the first three matches by a comprehensive margins. South Africa, however, bolstered by their victory in the last tie will have an opportunity to end the six-match series on an even note.

The recent history which has seen India losing against the Proteas in the 50-over format at the South African conditions could change under the flamboyant captaincy of Virat Kohli.

In 2013-14, India were outclassed by South Africa 0-2 while in 2010-11 the visitors gave a tough fight but failed to get hold of the series, losing it by a slender 2-3 margin.

Kohli, with 393 runs in the ODI series so far, which contains two centuries and identical numbers of unbeaten knocks, has led India from the front to heap trouble on the already depleted hosts.

Alongside the skipper, opener Shikhar Dhawan has looked in fine nick throughout the series and will be the key to give India a dominant total on board in the encounter on Tuesday.

There is also a strong possibility of Kohli dropping opener Rohit Sharma, who has failed to get going in the series, scoring merely 40 runs in the four matches.

The skipper in that case, might fall in the trouble of selecting from plenty amongst Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey or Kedar Jadhav.

Equally well complimented bowling department, led by the wrist spinning pair of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who have been difficult to be picked up by South Africa throughout the series, will continue to be the lethal weapons for India.

However, for South Africa wicket-keeper batsman Heinrich Klaasen, who played his first match of the series and assured them a comprehensive victory in the rain-curtailed encounter in Johannesburg, had looked to tackle the Indian wrist spinners well.

Batsmen Hashim Amla, Jean-Paul Duminy, AB de Villiers and David Miller, who can win their side a match single-handedly on a given day, might also look to come hard on the formidable Indian side, with nothing to loose.

In the bowling, all eyes will be on pacers Kagiso Rabada and Lungisani Ngidi to provide their side with flurry of wickets at the St George's Park.

However, the weather department has forecast rain to hit the city and it may affect the team composition.

Squad:

India: Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Ajinkya Rahane, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel.

South Africa: Aiden Markram (captain), Jean-Paul Duminy, Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, Morne Morkel, David Miller, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungisani Ngidi, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Imran Tahir, Farhaan Behardien, Khaya Zondo, Tabraiz Shamsi.
