India A vs South Africa A, Ind A vs SA A 5th ODI Highlights: India A register a convincing win against South Africa A beating them by 36 runs in the fifth unofficial ODI. The final ODI was delayed due to wet outfield and eventually reduced to a 20 overs per side game. Shreyas Iyer won the toss and elected to bat first. Shikhar Dhawan scored his second half-century on the trot despite a meaty blow to the head early on in the innings. Sanju Samson delivered an exhilarating performance batting at number three scoring a 48-ball 91 including six fours and seven sixes. Skipper Iyer played a cameo too guiding India to a mammoth total of 204 for 4.

Chasing a target of 205, South Africa A got off to a poor start losing the wicket of opener Janneman Malan and skipper Temba Bavuma in the powerplay overs. The partnership between Reeza Hendricks and Kyle Verreynne for the third wicket helped them come back in the game. Washington Sundar got the breakthrough as Verreynne departed for 24-ball 44. Hendricks scored another half-century on the tour but succumbed to the pressure of required run rate climbing up. Hendricks departed for 59. Shardul Thakur was the highest wicket-taker for the hosts with three wickets for 9 runs in his three overs. South Africa A suffered a batting collapse losing seven wickets for just 25 runs getting bundled out for 168 losing the match by 36 runs.
