Team India will depart South Africa a happy unit, winning eight out of the 12 games throughout the tour, despite the double losses in the first two Tests. Playing without Virat Kohli, who was suffering from a stiff back, the side, captained by Rohit Sharma, put the brakes on South Africa's chase at the right time, never letting it get on track in their pursuit of 173.

Here are all the numbers from the final T20I, the last game of the tour:

1 - Rohit Sharma became the first Indian captain, and sixth overall, to win his first four games as T20I skipper. He had captained the side against Sri Lanka last year.

1 - Bhuvneshwar Kumar took seven wickets in this series - the most by an Indian pacer in a bilateral T20I series.

3 - This was the third consecutive time that Junior Dala has got the wicket of Rohit Sharma. He dismissed the interim Team India captain in the first two games of the series as well.

7 - India maintained their record of having never lost the third match of a bi-lateral T20I series. They have now played seven and won all till date.

8 - This is India's eighth consecutive bilateral T20I series win of three or more matches. They have not lost any.

11 - JP Duminy scored his 11th fifty for South Africa, the most 50-plus scores for the country, going past AB de Villiers' tally of 10. Faf du Plessis is third with eight.
