Though it was Virat Kohli's first series loss, the team is quite happy with their performance in the final Test. Ajinkya Rahane, who was not included in the playing XI in the first two Tests was given an opportunity in the 3rd Test.
The start provided by their openers was steady but Amla lost his wicket as Bumrah trapped him in front.
South Africa scored 269/8, which India reeled in with six wickets standing and 5.3 overs remaining. India will want to improve its previous record in the one-day series against South Africa. Du Plessis, alternately, would have been given out lbw on 18 if India had opted for DRS at the end of the 13th over.
Top order of Indian team's batting lineup comprises of young cricketers like Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane and Kedar Jadhav.
Oakland County Health Division urges vaccinations after rise in flu cases
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, all of which are flawless pathways for germs to enter the body and spread. This is the best way of reducing your chances of getting sick and spreading the virus to others, according to Rumpf.
Heading into the Thursday's game, South Africa had won 17 consecutive ODIs at home and their last defeat came two years back against England. Du Plessis then temporarily consolidated and made a decision to take on the attack in the final five overs.
South Africa kept losing wickets at regular intervals and if was not for du Plessis' 120, their challenge would have been far weaker.
India played two spinners in this match - Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal - and both gave a good account of themselves, returning 3/34 and 2/45 respectively. "We'll discuss the things were picked up", said Du Plessis. "If we had got 60-70 more, it would have been easier for our bowlers", he said.
The duo batted the hosts out of the game and by the time Rahane was dismissed in the 43rd over, the Indians were virtually assured of a comfortable victory.
Performance to celebrate Black History Month
Williamson County historian Rick Warwick says the county has lost much of its deep-rooted black population over the years. If Black History Month achieves nothing more than that, it remains as useful and important as it has ever been.
Rahane and Kohli blunted South Africa's pace attack after joining hands at 67 for 2 in India's chase of 270 on a slow Kingsmead track in Durban.
Instead Kohli scored a superb 112 that helped his team win by six wickets.
Du Plessis shared partnerships of 74 with Chris Morris and 56 with Andile Phehlukwayo for the sixth and seventh wickets. South Africa is the top-ranked team and India its nearest rival at No 2. Incidentally, AB de Villiers is also out with a finger injury which he sustained during the third Test, and is unavailable for the first three ODIs in the six-match series.
