South Africa vs India 4th ODI: Winner of SA vs India Fourth ODI Match
Question in detail
South Africa vs India 4th ODI, match preview: Buoyant India looks confident to seal the six-match series in the fourth ODI. Johannesburg is where India could script the history on Saturday. And this time around they have reasons for optimism. All that they would take to win their first ever series in South Africa is just a win.
Given Kohli-Dhawan's roaring form, riddle of the wrist spin and a winning hat-trick that India will come with, Africa doesn't look any bit closer to fighting back in Johannesburg. If that's not enough, du Plessis-Kock's void is certainly what needs to be replenished by the hosts. Although AB de Villiers is back to the squad, they still need a solution to the wrist spin, which as of now has been the prime reason to their fiasco.
Chahal and Kuldeep have been relentless, indeed, fatal to Africa's collapse in the first three matches. So far in the series, the hosts have lost 21 of their 30 wickets to spin. The figures are daunting, particularly for Proteas. The spin duo brutally reeled off the opponent knitting a web around their limping batting line-up. And not surprisingly, it powered India to a winning hat-trick.
Now in South Africa vs India 4th ODI, the hosts will try to execute their plan to spin. And if this works well, they can keep their hopes alive for a series draw. Also, they would need a sure-fire strategy against Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who has knocked two centuries in the first three matches. When predicting the winner of SA vs India fourth ODI, the visitors are again hot favorite.
