South Africa did well to make 265-7 off 50 overs in Port Elizabeth after losing their first five wickets for 118 runs.

India were set a revised target of 260 after the first rain break and needed 123 from 87 balls, but at 142-6 off 32.5 overs the match was abandoned.

The result means the two sides will go to Centurion for the final one-dayer on Sunday with the series tied at two matches apiece.

Johan Botha and JP Duminy took RSA to decent total.
JP Duminy hit an unbeaten 71 from 72 balls and provided the hosts with some much-needed stability after they threw away the good start provided by Hashim Amla, who was run out on 64.

South Africa lost four wickets for 12 runs at one stage, but Duminy's innings and a 44 from Johan Botha took them to 265-7.

Virat Kohli top-scored for India with 87 not out but the home bowlers, the pick of them being Lonwabo Tsotsobe (2-25), maintained the pressure on all the other batsmen as they took wickets at regular intervals.

RSA vs IND 4th ODI post-match ceremony
Dhoni: "They were scoring at a healthy pace. And that meant if they batted for 50 overs, they will get to a good total.. And that's what happened. I tried the fast bowlers, spinners, part-timers but things don't go your way always. We would have fancied something around 240. Virat is a big positive. He has batted at no. 3 and carried innings through.The middle order hasn't clicked. Not only for us but also for South Africa. The team that handles pressure better will win on Sunday."

Man of the match is JP Duminy "Just wanted to take it to end as possible. I thought we had a defendable target at the end. It all worked out quite nicely. When we got to 45 overs, we thought 250 would be a good result."

Smith: We started well today. We had a few moments where our brains didn't work but we showed a lot of skill and determination to recover. We knew anything around 240 would be good. Excellent effort from Duminy and the rest. We have done well with the ball in this series. We have generally fielded well. The intensity has been good. We are excited to go to Pretoria. The teams have been trading blows for 2 months now and it has been a competitive series.
