“Nobody can deny that this achievement became possible only due to me. Only due to my untiring efforts did power cuts became a thing of the past, a bad dream,” she said.

Kohli ton helps India set up South Africa ODI decider | Reuters

REUTERS – Virat Kohli struck his first one-day international century since the World Cup in February to lead India to a series-levelling 35-run victory over South Africa in Chennai on Thursday.

Kohli made a fluent 138, his third-highest knock in 165 ODIs, to steer the hosts to an imposing 299 for eight in the fourth match of the five-game series.

South Africa replied with 264 for nine, AB de Villiers top-scoring with 112 off 107 balls, as India tied the series at 2-2 ahead of the deciding fifth match in Mumbai on Sunday.

Kohli’s 138 came off 140 deliveries and featured six fours and five sixes including one off Aaron Phangiso to bring up his 23rd ODI hundred and his first against the Proteas.

The Indian batsman shared two century partnerships, the first with Ajinkya Rahane (45) and the second with Suresh Raina (53) who bounced back to form after making ducks in his two previous matches.

Dale Steyn and Kagiso Rabada were the pick of the South African bowlers, taking three wickets each.

“It always feels good when you get a century and the team wins,” Kohli said. “I told (De Villiers) in the dressing room my heart was in my mouth when he was batting.

“He plays unbelievable shots. He’s a very modest man, too, never praises himself, so I’ll do that for him. The credit goes to him. He fought it out.”

Quinton de Kock got South Africa’s reply off to a flying start when he blasted 43 off 35 balls but his departure left De Villiers to fight a lone hand.

Like Kohli, the South African captain brought up his ton with a six, off Amit Mishral.

It was his 22nd ODI hundred, a record for a South African, but was not enough to get his team over the line after he fell to Bhuvneshwar Kumar who scooped up the last three wickets to finish with three for 68.

“We had a great opportunity to clinch the series,” De Villiers said. “It was a hard-fought game and I loved the way the boys fought till the end.”

Dhoni inspires India to series-levelling win | Reuters

INDORE, India India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni hammered 92 not out and skilfully marshalled his bowlers to secure a series-levelling 22-run win against South Africa in the second one-day international on Wednesday.

With India reeling at 124-6, Dhoni’s decision to bat first appeared to have backfired, but the 34-year-old produced an 86-ball blitz, hitting his fourth sixth off the final ball of the innings to help the hosts to a competitive 247-9.

Dhoni then returned to neatly stump Amla, take three catches and cleverly rotate his bowlers as South Africa were all out for 225 in the 44th over.

Left-arm spinner Axar Patel claimed career-best figures of 3-39, while paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar also got three wickets as the hosts fiercely defended a modest total, aided by some smart catching.

“A lot of people wait with open sword, they want you to commit a few mistakes and have fun with it,” said Dhoni, who has been under tremendous pressure with questions raging about his role in the squad.

“Overall I would not say a very good or a complete game, definitively we can play better, but it’s good to win games,” said the India captain after collecting the man-of-the-match award.

The Proteas had made public their plans to dismiss India’s in-form batsman Rohit Sharma early and paceman Kagiso Rabada executed it in the second over of the day.

Ajinkya Rahane (51) hit his second successive fifty but India lost the top half of their batting order soon after crossing the 100-mark.

With his team in dire straits and his own reputation at stake, Dhoni let his bat do the talking as he went after the South African bowlers, helping India score 82 runs off the last 10 overs.

The visitors began their chase well but the Indians struck regularly to keep the Proteas in check at Indore’s Holkar Cricket Stadium.

Patel wrecked the tourists’ top order and Virat Kohli made amends for his batting failure by taking three catches, two of them sent back South Africa’s topscorer Faf du Plessis (51) and the dangerous AB de Villiers.

“We had a good start upfront… there is enough experience among myself, (Farhaan) Behardien and (David) Miller to pull it through but unfortunately we got out soft ways tonight,” said De Villiers.

Rajkot hosts the third ODI of the five-match series on Sunday.
