Introduction

Kohli, who has been flawless in the field during this series, made two big blunders while setting his field. In the first instance, he put only one fielder on the leg-side boundary with the ball spinning sharply towards leg. In the second instance, Kohli set a deep mid-on for Chahal when a shortish midwicket would have been more effective. Both times, South Africa got away with boundaries that should not have been conceded.

The series between India and South Africa has been a strange one.

The series between India and South Africa has been a strange one.

In the first ODI, India won by 66 runs. In the second ODI, South Africa won by 4 wickets (with 3 balls remaining). In the third ODI, India won by 6 runs. In the fourth ODI, South Africa won by 93 runs (with 9 balls remaining). The fifth match was tied due to rain fall during last over of 20th over with 16 required off 12 balls for India; they had scored 19 in 17 balls before rain stopped play with no new ball available because of rule changes from 2020 onwards which allowed only one new ball per innings. Finally, India won by 5 wickets after chasing down 230 on Wednesday night at Eden Gardens in Kolkata - making it their first ever victory there against SA since 1992-93 when Sachin Tendulkar made 122 not out against them at No 2

Winning the toss and batting first has not worked out in the past at this venue.

The toss and the first innings are set to be important for both sides. India have won the toss and batted first in the previous two ODIs at this venue and lost both games. In fact, they've lost their last four ODIs when batting first at this venue and overall, they have lost six out of their last seven matches after winning the toss here.

South Africa also find themselves on a losing streak after winning the toss as they've lost their last three matches after doing so at this venue (they won their only other one). After losing their first game against India here by 124 runs, they were able to bounce back with victories over England (by six wickets) and Bangladesh (by 10 wickets).

Talking of captaincy, Kohli, despite his phenomenal record as captain, is not immune to the occasional blunder.

As a captain, Kohli is a bit of an enigma. On one hand, he has led India to an unprecedented period of success with some truly memorable performances. And yet, on the other hand, he has also made some pretty big mistakes. Some of these have cost India dearly in matches where they could have won if only they had done things differently.

Conclusion

It’s been a very strange series for South Africa and India. The visitors made the perfect start with an eight-wicket win at Centurion, but since then they have gone off the boil and lost the next three matches. They will be desperate to avoid losing this one-day international series 4-1, but if they are to do that they must find a way past Virat Kohli, who has been in imperious form with scores of 112*, 46, 160* and 122 in his last four matches.
