While Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli hammer down the opposition from the top, the few times they do not make an impact, India have struggled to hold things together from the middle-order - a point further established in the pink ODI at Johannesburg when just 59 runs came in the final 10 overs.
South Africa, playing without any spinners, looked out of ideas to stop the two with no variety in their bowling. The series is now well poised with India leading 3-1. The 11 balls he faced brought 23 runs, including three sixes, so in the end South Africa won with plenty of room to spare.
"It's a massive, massive confidence-booster for us", Klaasen said after guiding South Africa to a rain-affected five-wicket win. "Otherwise we were in very good position", Dhawan said at the post match press conference late last night (Saturday). After that I got out.

Port Elizabeth was under a heavy cloud cover through large parts of Monday, and there is rain forecast in the morning at least on Tuesday, which will have to be factored into both teams' plans. After that we said anything in the slot we must back ourselves to hit, we got a couple of boundaries and then we were just very calculated. Shreyas Iyer first dropped at deep square leg the left-handed batsman who had his stumps dismantled in the same over of a no-ball, with South Africa at 106/4 in the 18th over and the asking rate was more than nine per over. So, they too lead of the series. Following these fixtures against India, South Africa will take on Australia in a four-match Test series, with the first Test scheduled to begin in Durban on March 1. Anyone can have a bad day. "I think they were looking at 340 at some stage, so yeah, all credit needs to go to the bowlers to restrict them and to get us back into the series". "I was told to look to be positive‚ watch the ball and execute my game plans that I have‚" said the 21-year-old.

The pitch for this fifth ODI bore a brownish look on Monday, resembling more the wicket in Durban for the first ODI than Wanderers. When one of them go wrong in a particular, the result goes against them. These two spinners have won three games for us.
Klaasen's second ODI happened to be the Pink Day, a game South Africa have never lost, a game that they were threatening to lose despite everything going their way: India chose to bat despite a forecast of rain, the weather delivered them a T20-like target after India had nearly bowled their fast bowlers out, and the spinners were struggling with the wet ball. However, he hasn't been able to replicate that form so far in this series.
