India vs South Africa Fifth ODI at New Wanderers Stadium

Fifth ODI @ Centurion : South Africa complete 'wash

India won the toss for the first time in the series, Sachin was among runs for a change, the team even batted through their 50 overs, but South Africa walked all over India in the fifth and final ODI to win the series 4-0.
India scored 200 for 9 and then South Africa cruised home in 31.2 overs, with Graeme Smith scoring 79 and AB de Villiers an unbeaten 92, his highest score in ODIs. For India, Tendulkar compiled his 74th one-day international half century, (55 in 97 balls) but scored only four runs from his opening 40 deliveries. Mahendra Dhoni blasted two sixes and two fours in his enterprising 44 from 49 balls. Zaheer Khan hit a six and a four in his unbeaten 16 off 10 towards the end. The Test series is still 12 days away, and Ganguly is waiting for his first chance in a long time. Maybe India will do something better for a change! India XI: V Sehwag (Captain), S R Tendulkar, V V S Laxman, D Mongia, K D Karthik, M S Dhoni, I K Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, A Kumble, Z Khan, S Sreesanth
South Africa XI: G C Smith (Captain), A B de Villiers, J H Kallis, H H Gibbs, A G Prince, J M Kemp, M V Boucher, S M Pollock, R J Peterson, A Nel, M Ntini

India vs South Africa Fifth ODI Venue

New Wanderers Stadium

Wanderers Stadium is a stadium situated just south of Sandton in Illovo, Johannesburg in Gauteng Province, South Africa. Test, One Day and First class cricket matches are played here. It is also the home ground for the Highveld Lions, formerly known as Gauteng (Transvaal).
The stadium has a seating capacity of 30,000, and was built in 1956 to replace the Old Wanderers Stadium. It was completely overhauled following South Africa's readmission to international cricket in 1991. In 1996, five new 65 metre high floodlight masts replaced the existing four 30 metre high masts enabling day-night limited-overs cricket. The Cricket World Cup 2003 final was held at the Wanderers Stadium. On 1 October 2004, the Wanderers Clubhouse was virtually destroyed by fire.
