Centurion: A historic series triumph sealed, India are expected to put their bench strength to test while a vanquished South Africa would aim for a consolatory win when the two sides square off in the sixth and final ODI, here on Friday.

India lost the three-match Test series 2-1, after being walloped in the first two games, but have secured a first ODI series win in Port Elizabeth last night. "This is our second anniversary, but more than that, we won the game", he said.

3 wickets needed by Kuldeep Yadav (16) to become the highest wicket-taker in a bilateral series in ODI history.

Amla acknowledged that India's wrist-spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal had played a major part in stymying the batting in the middle overs.

The team's ability to start on an aggressive note and then fall in line with the changing nature of the wicket - one that kept getting slower and made batting hard - was in stark contrast to South Africa's absolute failure in sticking around.

"After this series is wrapped up we'll sit down and think about where to improve". They've bowled well, and it seemed like we took our first three games to get used to it. We've played decently well against their spinners, but they've been the difference to be honest. "The guys have done decently well". In each game they have picked up at least five wickets.

"To restrict that strong Indian batting line up to 270, you would think that we should go on and chase those runs but we were not able to". So anything in particular you (Virat Kohli) felt throughout the series that we have done well? But when you lose in this manner, whatever adjustments need to be made, you focus on it more. We've had Ngidi make his debut, so he is going to take a lot of experience and learning from the series. Untimely injuries also hurt their chances in the series as players Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, and Quinton de Kock all play some part of the series only.

Unfortunately, in the role of captain, the right-handed opener has scored only 103 runs in the five innings, with scores of 9, 8, 32, 22 and 32.

Meanwhile, batsman Ajinkya Rahane who has failed to get big scores in the series will look to get amongst the runs. If he reaches the next threshold of eight points within the next two years, he will be suspended again but this time for two tests, or one test and two ODIs, or four ODIs and T20s, depending on which comes first. It certainly brings out the best in him and I think he should not change too much for him. Also, he feels the youngster is only going to get better from here on.
