Team India's record-breaking South African Safari
After losing a closely-contested Test series, the Indian team would have wanted to get back at the Proteas in the limited-overs format as the fans were anticipating a much better performance. The Men in Blue were desperate to turn things around in the colored jersey and they did so comfortably with a comprehensive 5-1 win over the hosts.
The collective team effort made the daunting task of defeating the mighty Proteas possible. India excelled in all the three departments, with the skipper smashing centuries at ease while the slower bowlers, Yuzvnedra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav repaid the captain's faith in them by spinning a web around the Proteas's batting lineup. In many ways, it was a memorable series for Team India who entered the ODIs after a disappointing 2-1 loss in Tests.
Let us now look at the records, which grabbed the headlines during India's famous 5-1 series win.
