Mostly known for his performances in test matches Morkel took 5wickets in an inning seven times comparing with his ODI career where he took 5 wickets only twice.
Though he wished to play for domestic and franchise cricket but this IPL season he remained unsold. Morkel aged 33 further said

Former successful Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly autobiography “A century is not enough” which has been written by himself along with co-authored by Gautam Bhattacharya and published by Juggernaut now being circulating around.
Ganguly in his book put forward his side of the story when he was being dropped in 2005 as a player from Indian team and also about his experience with Kolkata knight riders (KKR) during three seasons.
“Acenturyisnotenough” …published and out in the market today ..not an autobiography..but a walk thru the path to success and failure ..enjoy it …”Sourav Ganguly“
There is no second thought in it how much “Dada” contributed to Indian cricket by consolidating the whole team and this reflected in 2011 World Cup win when the whole country dripped into the pool of emotions.
After 2003 World Cup where India lost in finals against its favorite rival Australia and Ganguly emerged as a powerful and assertive captain by taking Indian team till finals after a poor show in the group match.
During this year Ganguly mentioned how he met Chappell, impressed with his dept cricketing wisdom on tour to Australia back then. He thought Chappell would be the best person to help him out in taking avenge of world cup loss against Australia.
“In our previous meetings, he had impressed me with his deep cricketing knowledge,” Dada writes in his book.
In 2004 when India’s one of the best foreign coach John Wright’s successions as an Indian coach started to speculate, Greg name was first suggested by Saurav. In his book, he recalls how Sunil Gavaskar warned him to have Chappell in Indian side and complication to work with by adding poor record as a coach in the past while suggesting former captain.
Apart from veteran batsman Gavaskar, Jagmohan Dalmiya was also against Chappell to be mentoring Men in Blue as stated in Dada’s autobiography how Dalmiya called him one day at his house and shared in confidence that even Ian Chappell younger brother of Greg Chappell being skeptical on his older one as an Indian coach.
The God of offside ambushing all warnings and speculation surrounded in the selection of Greg Chappell believed in his own gut feeling and went ahead with his original choice. And in 2005 controversy started to haul as fall out of Indian Captain and coach which till now sometimes still becomes flacon in the minds of Cricket fans.
In fact, in the book he writes “This (the year 2005) remains the most turbulent chapter of my life. Not only was my captaincy suddenly taken away for no reason but I was also dropped as a player. I feel angry even as I write this. What happened was unthinkable, Unacceptable, and Unforgivable “.
Prior to his six months of exclusion from Team India Ganguly scored a century in a test match, this also couldn’t convince selection committee led by Kiran More. This unceremonious removal of Maharaja not only from Captain but also as player rarely happened in the history of Cricket.
Sharing his experiencing of IPL wherein captained the side of KKR own by Shahrukh Khan on two occasions and on one occasion he played as a player. The god of offside shared in his book how as Indian Captain he had a independence to choose playing 11 but this was the first time in the career he had to ask and inform about playing eleven to KKR owner.
During his reign as captain of KKR in the first season when the team performed poorly which made him play as an ordinary player in season two and again as a captain in the third season.
Though Saurav mentioned good relation with SRK, this reflects subtle hint on the functioning of IPL teams and how this impacts on star players. Till date, no one has come forward and given insight into the offside scenario of an IPL team, especially how team owners and business tycoon control whole management of the team.
Indeed a stupendous show by Indian skipper in centurion by thrashing Proteas attacking bowlers and win over South Africa by 8 wickets.
Chasing run of 205, India lost its hitman merely at the score of 15 which send assumption for everyone to witness a tight game between visitor and host. But denying everyone speculation Virat Kohli made the chase an ease to watch.
In fact, Virat scored his 35th century with two massive sixes showing his greatness both as a batsman and captain. Gabbar of team India established a partnership with the skipper of 67 runs after his dismissal, Rahane (34*)and Kohli(129*) made a partnership of 121 runs.
Above that when batsman from both sides finding it difficult to hit shots through the middle of the bat, Virat made it look quite ease by hitting 19 boundaries around critical areas of fielders. Former cricket Sultan of Multan went ahead by predicting 64 tons for #imkohli.
Master blaster congratulated Kohli for achieving 35th century in ODI and luck for upcoming matches. Michel Vaughan, former English batsman through his twitter handle tweeted Indian skipper as the greatest ODI player. Well deserving of all praises, Virat broke the records including highest run scorer in bilateral series and as highest run-getter by a Captain. Moreover highest run against South Africa by an individual Batsman.
During post-match interview, Indian skipper emphasized that they play for representing India on the international platform rather than making headlines. He further added Indian skipper is not competing with anyone and associating tag along with his name won’t make big difference for him as opine on his team matters.
India performance in first two test matches attracted many critics for not playing as a no.1 test team, switching to revenge mode India too defeated South Africa who was holding number one spot in ODI. Connecting with it, scored three century during 2015-2016 tour against India now Kohli making it even with three century and the highest scorer in bilateral against the rainbow nation.
Indian coach Ravi Shastri sitting alongside Indian skipper during the post-match interview admitted Kohli as the greatest batsman in the world.
Veteran former captain of SA Shaun Pollock advised Indian skipper to control his aggression during captaincy though it might be fruitful in his personal game. And referred men in blue as unidirectional in this series.

Proteas were unable to convert their success of fourth ODI in successive 5th ODI, which made India to clinch ongoing series. SA victory in the previous match speculated many that they will save the series, by equalling in this even series and with the return of AB, spectators assume it more firmly.
India as a historic win over the rainbow nation made everyone proud. This was the first instance after 1992 when India won on the soil of rainbow nation. India had waited for more than two decades to win a bilateral, who can forget the 2003 World Cup that was held in proteas ground where India reached finals under the captaincy of Ganguly and defeated by Aussies. In Fact, in the 2009 Champions Trophy, Captain Cool team was eliminated before the knockout stage.

After being defeated in the test series recently, fans started to be skeptical regarding India’s win in this ODI under the captaincy of flamboyant right-hand batsman Kohli. So far aggressive captain scored 393 runs with two centuries and not out twice by keeping India always on the upper hand which put Faf du Plessis’s men under psychological pressure which reflected in 5th ODI.
In this whole series, Indian bowlers displayed a nice piece of the game especially spinnersYuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav by taking most wickets and became highest oversea wicket-taker in bilateral tour against the rainbow nation.

Soughting records of bowlers inclusive of pacers or spinners both Chahal and Kuldeep hold the highest record by surpassing earlier held by England’s Kabir Ali, who took 13 wickets in seven ODIs in 2004-05, and Australian Mitchell Johnson who took 13 in five matches in 2008-09.
In 5th ODI the Hitman of India, Rohit Sharma gave a crushing word to critics by scoring a ton and during post-match interview he said about the partiality by media, also related to success and failure. But above that what took everyone attention is the run out record between a pair of captain and vice captain.

Pitch And Stats Report of Centurion, SuperSports Park
SuperSports Park generally supports the seamers, there is an opportunity for the batsman also as the ball comes to the bat. It is also predicted that the pitch will not support the spinners, the ball will skid in this ground but it is also true that RSA has no answer to the spinning twin.
If we look at the last match played here in this series, the spinning duo has made it difficult for the Proteas to score runs. They together took 8 wickets and the fast bowlers took 2 wickets. Proteas could only score 118 runs in 32.2 overs which is the lowest score in this ground.
Head to Head in Centurion
In this ground India team has played 6 matches against South Africa team in which Ind has won 3 games, SA won 2 matches and 1 match had no result. It seems that this ground favors Men In Blue.

Probable Playing 11 of IND
Kohli would love to end the series by winning the 6th ODI but seeing the workload of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah they might not play the sixth ODI, Mohammed Shami, and Shardul Thakur may get a chance.

The staggering partnership between Cheeku and Gabbar though gave the spectators hope to expect India’s 300 marks at Wanderers stadium in Johannesburg but poor performances by Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, and Shreyas Iyer placed responsibility on Dhoni’s shoulder. Mr. Cool playing its part by biding partnership with tail-enders placed India to fighting total.

All the factors seemed to favor Proteas team despite their top four batsmen returned to pavilion merely 102 runs on the board in 17th over, when David Miller returned back to the field after being dismissed by Yuzvendra Chahal on a No ball bowled by the latter.
Until Miller dismissal, he scored 39 runs off 28 balls with two massive sixes which contributed a lot for the host team to chase the score.
Heinrich Klaasen meanwhile continued to put Indian bowlers under pressure by hitting five boundaries and on another side, Andile Phehlukwayo entertained everyone in the stadium by setting the game on their bag by hitting three huge sixes as South Africa won the 4th ODI.
Ab de Villiers who always scored a ton in pink jersey failed to show any remarkable stances by getting out when SA needed 100 runs out of 67 balls. Pink teamplaying without any spinners faced some tough time in stopping Kohli and Dhawan strike on their fast bowlers.
India at one point in the game seemed to cross 300 mark runs but after the dismissal of two in-form batsmen, India lost its momentum when Ajinkya Rahane got out scoring 8 runs putting India at 210/4. Again India’s reliable batsman former skipper MS Dhoni set decent score of 289/7 by scoring 42 runs not out.
As 5th ODI is set to be played at St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth again Men in blue have the opportunity to write history, now all eyes will be set on the tight contest between Blue and Green.
It was a chance of making history in 4th ODI but South Africa playing in Pink Jersey showed their intention and maintained their record of not losing in the pink dress. India was just about to win the series but a no-ball from Chahal has taken the game away from them.

Time: 11: Am GMT, 04:30 pm IST.
Port Elizabeth, St. George’s Park Scoring Pattern
Average first inning score is 232.
Average second inning score is 198.
Highest total in this ground was 335/6 in 50 overs by PAK v SA.
Lowest total on this ground was 112/10 in 30.1 overs by NZ v AUS.
Pitch and Stats Report of Port Elizabeth, St. George’s Park
The pitch of St. George’s Park will play slow so it will be difficult for the batsman to play on. As we have mentioned above in the scoring pattern of this ground that average 1st inning score is 232. But it will help the batsman if they don’t lose wickets initially.
If we look at the score of the last two domestic matches played here was very disappointing, it was 181 and 167. Although it’s good the for the two spinners of Ind as they both were not that much effective in 4th ODI.
Last international match played here was between SA v SL. It was a low scoring match and South Africa easily won the match. 181 was the score proteas has to chase and they chased just losing 2 wickets. Imran Tahir took 3 wickets in that match.
Head to Head in Port Elizabeth
Indian team has played 4 games against Proteas in this ground and the most shocking part is Ind have lost all the matches in this field.
Believe us you will be surprised to know that Men In Blue have lost a match against Kenya also in this pitch. So guys finger crossed as this ground doesn’t seem to be lucky for India.
Weather in Port Elizabeth, St. George’s Park
It is expected that there will be heavy rain at times. In the morning it will be overcast and windy, in afternoon we can see light drizzle and in evening and night patchy rain is possible, so again finger crossed so that we can see the full match.
Aiden Markram (c), AB de Villiers, Khaya Zondo, Morne Morkel, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), David Miller, Jean-Paul Duminy, Tabraiz Shamsi, Kagiso Rabada, Hashim Amla, Imran Tahir, Andile Phehlukwayo, Farhaan Behardien, Chris Morris, Lungisani Ngidi.
Probable Playing 11 of Ind
Bumrah or Bhuvneshwar Kumar, either of the two might have been rested if they would have won the 4th ODI but today Kohli will not take the risk of giving rest. Kedar Jadhav will play in this match. Axar Patel may get the chance to play as the pitch will be slow and Proteas find difficult to play the spin bowlers.
In Practice, during the nets, SA team were concentrating on spinners and if you listen to Klaasen- he says they have found the key to the spin duo. Either Imran or Tabraiz Shamsi will play.

Key Players for Ind v SA, 5th ODI
MS Dhoni: Dhoni is just 46 runs short to become the 12th player to reach 10,000 runs in ODI. It will be a proud moment for Indians as he will be the fourth player from India after Sachin, Ganguly and Rahul Dravid.In the last match, Dhoni scored 42 runs off 43 balls.

Key Players For IND v SA, 4th ODI
MS Dhoni: Dhoni is a very good choice for dream11 but as he bats very late so he gets less number of balls to play. If we see the fantasy points of MSD, his points were 8.5, 6 and 15. He was selected by 45.57% of fantasy cricket users in the 1st match, 27.55% in the 2nd match, 42 .74% in the 3rd match and in the 4th match he was selected by 38.35% of the users at the time of writing this post.
Heinrich Klaasen: In the previous prediction we have mentioned the details of Heinrich so you can have a look at that cricket prediction. Klaasen batted 4th down in the last match and as RSA find very difficult to handle the twin spin attack of IND, so he will get more chance to play.
In the last match, he contributed with 17.5 points and he was selected by 44.36% of the users in the last match. 61.66% of dream11 users have selected him in the 4th match.
Pro Tip: Keep Klaasen on your team as he will get more balls to play but if you are playing with more than one team then make teams in a different combination.
Virat Kohli: In the last match Kohli has scored 160 runs in 159 balls. His performance was very consistent in the last three matches. He has contributed 71,28 and 102 points in the last three ODI. 88.84% have selected him in the first match, 88.24% in the 2nd match, 90.6% in the 3rd match and 82.62% have selected him in the 4th match.
Rohit Sharma: Rohit Sharma have performed very bad in this series but you can’t ignore him as he can blast any time on his day. He has contributed with 14, 11.5 and -1 points in last three ODI and he was selected by 63.24, 64.29,63.4 and 35.15 percent of the users in the last matches.
Shikhar Dhawan: Dhawan has played a decent knock in the last inning. Shikhar has contributed with 22.5, 34 and 48 points. He was selected by 43.89%, 55.66% 68.09% and 76.75% of the users in the last matches respectively.
AB de Villiers: De Villiers has not played the last three ODI as he was out because of the finger injury. In the 4th match SA will change their jersey color to pink and if we see ABD record in pink Color jersey then it’s a threatening sign for India. His record in the pink dress is outstanding. He has scored 450 runs in the last five games with an average of 112.5.
Pro Tip: Make a combination from the above list. If you are playing with more than one team then keep Rohit Sharma as a Captain in the grand league as you can see above that only few people have selected him.
Pro Tip: Try to select more RSA players as they will get more chance of batting.
Pro tip: Play with five bowlers and Keep Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal in your team.
