South Africa vs India 5th ODI: Winner of SA vs India 5th ODI Match in Port Elizabeth
Question in detail
South Africa vs India 5th ODI match preview: Finally a win comes to lift South Africa's lost confidence. They will be happy with the fight back, but the job is yet not over. Two more wins are the least Africa would desperately need to end the series in a draw. The way the series has befallen thus far, only two results are left possible now. Until the hosts had emerged victorious in the 28-over rain-affected game at Wanderers, it was appearing to be a series of India's valor and heroism. With just one result to Africa's favor, it has turned out to be more a backgammon than a bilateral cricketing series now.
The series-win speculations that had once been with India until the first three games have seen a sudden alteration. Now anything can happen. India could win and even Africa could manage a series-draw. However, the ratio between the two results is still having a marginal difference. The visitors have more chances to become the winner of SA vs India 5th ODI in Port Elizabeth.
It would be surprising if India doesn't win the series from here on. They are still upper hand, indeed one step from achieving what they haven't ever in the cricketing history a series-win in Africa. Kohli needs to be extra cautious about using his pace and spin options, unlike the way he did in the last game. India is nowhere close to losing the series. However, if they repeat the same mistakes again in South Africa vs India 5th ODI, a series win in Africa would remain a mere daydreaming.
Now let's predict who can become the winner of SA vs India 5th ODI. India again comes in as favorite at Port Elizabeth. You can't underestimate India's might based on just one defeat in four matches. They still have two matches to script the history. And winning one out of two matches doesn't sound to be a big deal for a team that is undergoing a devastating form.
Will India seal the series in the 5th ODI against South Africa?
