32.1 Imran Tahir to Virat Kohli

4

FOUR! Imran Tahir to Virat Kohli. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Easy as that. Tossed up in the hitting zone and Virat Kohli drills it down the ground. India win convincingly on the back of another century from their captain and they take the series 5-1. Who would have seen that coming when they started in Durban?South Africa will be thinking how things might have been different had they had a full strength team for all six games but with the form Kohli was in, it might have been exactly the same. Their troubles against spin will be a worry with Chahal and Kuldeep both taking tons of wickets and the batsmen not having a clear plan to combat them. For India they still have the problem of an inexperienced middle-order and with not many opportunities this series they don't have a clearer idea as they move forward who fits best.The ODI part of the tour is over and we now move to Johannesburg for the first of three T20s in a couple of days. See you then.
