Kagiso Rabada waves goodbye to Shikhar Dhawan after his dismissal

SA series win shows that India are truly No 1 in ODIs

Virat Kohli  team became the first from India to win a series on South African soil, taking the top spot in the ICC ODI Championship from the hosts with commanding wins: by six wickets, nine wickets, 124 runs and 73 runs. In his column for TOI, Srikkanth applauded the team's effort and hoped they rounded out the series on Friday with another commanding win.

"Winning a bilateral series for the first time in South Africa is no easy feat. India is only the second team (Australia, twice) to beat the African nation in a five-match ODI series in their own den. This stat alone should put things in perspective. They are not an easy team to beat at home and full credit to the Indian team for coming back strongly after that rare defeat at the Wanderers," wrote the 58-year-old.

"A good last game and success in the T20 series to follow, will rightly perch the Indian team right at the top in terms of confidence for the tougher assignments in future and the World Cup in particular. This result has proved beyond doubt that India has all the ammunition to be successful in all conditions in this format. I am sure this is the start of many good things to come for this confident, young and fit Indian side.

Ashes captains set for key series

They've both conducted 92 Tests, they are both world-class batsmen and they both acquired a variety of on Evaluate first overall look, in each scenario away to Native indian.

"The truth Dhoni, McCullum and Clarke are prepared to make those goes shows me..that even in this era vessel boat captains can and will be innovative and powerful -- if they allow themselves to be," involved Gower, an Ashes-winning skipper coming returning in 1985.
Since Jan 1 last year, Clarke has been in amazing kind, with a several variety of against Native indian and three more double 100's of decades, such as two against The southern aspect of African-american, the top Evaluate aspect.
Yet his reaching and battling captaincy could not prevent a series decrease to The southern aspect of African-american or a 4-0 beating away to Native indian, where his assistance for instructor Mickey Arthur proven divisive.
Arthur was progressively sacked just 16 times before the Ashes, following the 'homework' row that saw four players, such as then vice-captain Geebet Watson, reduced for not completing an itemized process.
Clarke also found himself criticised for not making an investment a lot of your power and attempt with his group during the beginning of the journey of Britain when he was going through way to a traditional coming returning harm.
