History in South Africa

Virat Kohli’s India scripted the country’s first-ever cricket series victory across formats in South Africa, beating the hosts by 73 runs to take an unassailable 4-1 lead in the ODI series on Tuesday. Rohit Sharma scored a century to guide India to 274/7 at Port Elizabeth. Kuldeep Yadav took four wickets, including three in an over, to wrap up the South African innings for 201. “Very pleased.... It’s history and the guys have worked hard for it,” Kohli said. (AFP picture)
