It was a long time coming, Rohit on his match-winning ton

Share

India had entered the six-match series in second position on 119 points, two points behind leaders South Africa.

In the current series, South Africa have needed the services of JP Duminy to provide some kind of variety, and he has done a reasonably good job as lead spinner Imran Tahir struggled to get going. Yesterday, South Africa won the toss and asked India to bat first. Shreyas Iyer contributed 30.

The top three of Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli contributed four centuries, three half-centuries and almost 900 runs between them in the five games.

Last year, Rohit dedicated his third double century to Ritika on the occasion of their second marriage anniversary. Seasoned opener Hashim Amla kept South Africa in the hunt with a 71 off 92 balls. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who came in for rough treatment in the last ODI, returned to their wicket-taking ways, with Kuldeep taking 4 for 57 and Chahal returning 2 for 43. Fittingly enough, Chahal trapped pacer Morne Morkel for a duck in the 3rd ball of the 43rd over to signal India's win in the match as well as the series.

Rohit who won the man-of-the-match award dedicated the hundred to his wife on Valentine's day. But that partnership was brought to an end due to mix up between them costing Kohli's run out. Rohit scored 115 from 126 balls on his way to returning to form.

Rohit Sharma finally shrugged off his poor run in South Africa with a match-winning century in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday.

On the tour so far, Rohit had tallied 118 runs in eight innings across two Tests and four ODIs.On Tuesday, he nearly doubled that at St. George's Park. "They had the pressure of losing this series and we knew that".
