Watch the highlights of the 4th ODI between South Africa and England today, Friday, 12/2/2016. Both teams gave their best in the final ODI of the series, but the South African innings was particularly brilliant and magnificent, especially Q de Kock’s 135 off 117 balls and HM Amla’s 127 off 130 balls. In just 55 innings, Q de Kock completed all 10 of his ODI centuries. He is the youngest and fastest batter to have 10 ODI hundreds at the age of 23 years and 54 days.
De Kock and Amla opened the batting for South Africa and amassed 239 runs, a significant partnership in an ODI game. England’s team was thrilled to score 318 runs because SA had not done so.
A typical Wanderers ODI pitch is packed with runs and consistent bounce and carry. South Africa have scored over 300 in their last four matches at the venue and won three. The pitch is off-center for this match which means one boundary will be shorter. A fast outfield and thin air will also aid the batsmen. Thundershowers are forecast between 4 pm and 6 pm.
