Port Elizabeth Feb 14 (IANS) India skipper Virat Kohli termed the fifth One Day International (ODI) win against South Africa as a "collective effort"



India clinched their maiden ODI series win on South African soil taking an unbeatable 4-1 lead after outclassing the hosts by 73 runs in the fifth One-Day International (ODI) at the St. George s Park here on Tuesday.

Opener Rohit Sharma led the tourists striking his 17th ODI century before chinaman Kuldeep Yadav returned figures of 4/51 to bowl the Proteas out for 201 in their chase of 274.

"It s been a collective effort to create history. When three guys at the top are being consistent the guys who get an opportunity every now and then might not click " Kohli was quoted as saying by the International Cricket Council website.

"I m very pleased it was another complete performance from us.

"They had the pressure of losing this series and we knew that. It s history and the guys have worked hard for it. Ever since the third Test in Johannesburg it s been a good time for us " he added.

Kohli said that the team management would also like to make a few changes in the playing XI on Friday as they have already clinched the series.

"After this series is wrapped up we ll sit down and think about where to improve. For now 4-1 feels great. We want to win 5-1 for sure but there might be a scenario for a few more guys to get a chance in the next match. But the ultimate priority is to win and we ll do anything we can to win " the Delhi batsman said.
