Rohit Sharma ended his barren run of form and scores in South Africa and it came in a winning cause – a series winning cause. After poor string of scores in South Africa, Rohit turned things around with 115 runs and took India to 274 runs which in the end was far too much for the Proteas to chase down. At the end of the evening, India scripted history with a 73 run win – first ODI win in Port Elizabeth but more importantly a first bilateral series win for the Virat Kohli-led side. Hashim Amla scored 71 runs for South Africa in the reply but he didn’t get much support from the middle order which couldn’t repeat the magic of Wanderers once again. Rohit Sharma earned himself the Man of the Match honour for his 115 run knock.
