India will be eyeing to wrap up their first series triumph on South African soil when they take the field at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth.

South Africa, playing without any spinners, looked out of ideas to stop the two with no variety in their bowling. While Mithali Raj led the side in the ODI series, the T20s will witness a different captain in the explosive Harmanpreet Kaur, who will be assisted by in-form batswoman Smriti Mandhana. It was the lowest total of South Africa at their home ground in ODI. And yet, with their talisman AB de Villiers gone with the game in the balance, South Africa were back to square one: shaky middle order against India's wristspinners. There are still question-marks about the fitness of Kedar Jadhav, who suffered a hamstring injury in Cape Town and missed the previous game.

"At the same time we don't really want to look too far ahead". India's performance in the 50-over format has impressed former South Africa skipper Kepler Wessels.

South Africa: Aiden Markram (capt), Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Imran Tahir, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Chris Morris, Lungisani Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Khaya Zondo, Farhaan Behardien, Heinrich Klaasen (wk).

Trump's White House wants to privatise International Space Station by 2025

Plenty of rain is forecast in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday, and it is likely to affect the match at some stage. "He's a cool, calm and experienced cricketer and he just said, 'Anything in our slot we need to back and whatever we decide to do, we need to do fully.' So we were very calculated in our approach there".

Of course judging batsmen on sheer average and strike rate is cruel, particularly since the situation of the match like balls remaining or how much the top order contributed etc also makes an impact.

Equally well-complimented bowling department, led by the wrist spinning pair of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who have been hard to be picked up by South Africa throughout the series, will continue to be the lethal weapons for India. Repetitive interruptions in play due to rain and lightning didn't let the Indian batsmen get into a proper rhythm and despite a spirited start by Dhawan and Kohli, they didn't manage to cross the 300-mark.

Look, we are a little nervous about India's batting attack if the ball bends here and South Africa could be gung-ho following Jo'burg but those odds are just plain wrong. To put things into perspective, that is 61.61 percent of all runs India have made in one-day internationals since the showpiece event in 2015. "But it's just one loss man, we've already won three games, one more game and we're through", added Dhawan. We at Latestly, bring to you a list of players who would be the x-factor in their team's win as both the sides clash in the Fifth ODI. "We are really upbeat. Anyone can have a sh*t day. but these two spinners have won three games for us", said India's opener Shikhar Dhawan. However, he hasn't been able to replicate that form so far in this series.
