Team India will press hard to pocket a historic ODI series when they face a depleted South Africa, who will hope for some AB de Villiers’ magic in the fourth one-dayer at the New Wanderers Stadium today.

With an unassailable 3-0 lead in hand, the Virat Kohli-led outfit need just one more win in the six-match series to claim their maiden ODI triumph on South African soil and also cement their place atop the International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI rankings. Previously, India came close taking a 2-1 lead in the 2010-11 series under Mahendra Singh Dhoni, only to lose 2-3 eventually.

India’s bowling has clicked excellently in the three matches so far, with the wrist spin duo of leggie Yuzvendra Chahal and chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, accounting for 21 out of the 30 wickets.
