Johannesburg: Opener Shikhar Dhawan of Team India played his 100th ODI century, despite his impressive batting, the Indian team suffered a defeat against South Africa in the fourth ODI. After the match, Dhawan said that the ‘lucky’ David Miller and the rain defeated Team India. The hosts kept alive the hopes of their return in the series by defeating India by five wickets in the fourth one-dayer played on Saturday night. Miller was dismissed by leg-spinner Yusufendra Chahal on the private yoga of six and seven, but first Shreyas Iyer left his catch. After this, Yugavendra had made him bold but the ball was no ball.
Miller, after making 39 runs in 28 balls, played a special role in the first win of the series for the hosts. “After losing the catch and being bold on the no ball, the match’s rhythm got worsened,” said Dhawan in a press conference after the match. He had a fortune with Miller and he used to seize the opportunity with both hands or else we were in good condition. Dhawan said, “Obviously rain has affected us, our spinners were unable to spin the ball in the way they did in the last three other matches. But, when the ball became wet, it became difficult for them. “
It is noteworthy that due to rain, the match stayed for about an hour. Once the rain intervened once in the Indian innings, the rain came in the second innings and that is why the hosts were given a revised target by subtracting the number of overs. Dhawan said, “Our goal was broken. After the break I was out and the runs were not coming, but our total was good.” Dhawan had scored a hundred in this match. This was his hundredth ODI and Dhawan, who made a century in the 100th ODI, became the first Indian. Dhawan said on the century,”It was my 100th ODI, so this hundred is special, I have supported Virat Kohli, I am happy with my century and want to continue my form.”
