India in South Africa ODI Series - 4th ODI

South Africa v India

South Africa won by 48 runs (D/L method)

14.15 Spike defends Tahir's exclusion: "One thing SA is good at is man management and I think they want to make sure Tahir is comfortable in the team setup and with his own part in that setup before they will give him a game. I'm sure he will play an important part in the World Cup."

Jay S (a hip-hop fan perhaps?) says: "Tahir is designated as the secret weapon only to be unleashed in the WC since Ind and SA are in the same group."

14.05 Port Elizabeth isn't India's favourite ground. They have lost all four matches they have played here, including one to Kenya in 2001.

Narendakumar on Dhoni's astonishingly poor toss record: "I think in the matches which india plays, it is a waste of time to have the toss."

As usual, plenty of people unhappy with the Xis chosen. Wayne questions Peterson's inclusion. "How can they play Petersen ahead of Tahir, hes been tried so many times before with no impact?"

Sean: "Happy to see Parnell and Ingram out but would rather have seen Tahir ahead of Peterson , why is Corrie so scared to play him?"

14.00 Toss Dhoni calls 'heads', and its 'tails'. South Africa have chosen to bat.

Smith: "The pitch is a little slower and lower than the usual South African tracks, we have been very good for large parts of the game, this time we hope to play well for the whole 100 overs." Two changes for South Africa: Morne van Wyk and Robin Petersen come in for Colin Ingram and Wayne Parnell.

MS Dhoni: "The track may slow down as the day progresses, but we hope it doesn't." India have made only one change, Parthiv Patel takes over from M Vijay.

13.50 Welcome to ESPNcricinfo's coverage of the fourth ODI between India and South Africa. Will India seal the series with a third one-day win in a row or will South Africa level things up at 2-2?

Here's our preview to the game.

0.1

Khan to Amla, 1 run, full in length, from round the stumps right away to Amla who pushes this to the on side

Experts reckon 225 is a very good score here

Matt: "I cant beleive they are not playing Tahir . This " lets keep him a secret " is rubbish. Lets see what he can do ! Johan Botha is S.A's biggest problem at the moment - an average bowler and below average batsmen. the fact that he is in the running to become the next ODI captain is hurting the side as he should be dropped for a specialist spinner and then we need to include a big hitting all rounder - Albie Morkel has my vote. "
