That is it for this game. Cheers

Shikhar Dhawan is the Man of the Match. Dhawan: "Really happy. South Africa are a great bowling unit, pressure is always there, but you have to move on with it. Priority was to stay at the wicket, we knew we could play shots and recover. Left-right pairing works as well."

MS Dhoni: "Rohit batted well along with Shikhar, gave us a good platform, but we lost too many wickets during the middle, we were short by at least 25 runs. Before you play the pull, best option is to take a single, if that is not working, go after the bowler. Boys played with plenty of aggression, but it was controlled. [Spin] was needed at that point of time. It worked for us, we got those run outs as well. You talk about giving guys consistent chances, last ODI Rohit played, he did as an opener, selectors also backed us up, they said let him play all three games as an opener, it worked for us."

AB de Villiers: "We got ourselves into a great position to win the game with the bat. I am proud of the way we fought back through the day from some unfortunate instances, but we lost too many wickets. Amazing effort to keep them to 330, about par. We were above the run rate, but lost wickets at the wrong times, good captaincy from MS. Couple of runs outs cost us a bit."

Spinners turned it around for India, after Jadeja's run-out of Peterson gave them the opening. South Africa were 155 for 2 in the 25th over when Peterson fell. It was terrific batting from the openers that set up the match though. It was cold and overcast for a while in the morning but they got through that period with confidence. Not to forget Jadeja's late hitting, of course
