India vs South Africa, 5th ODI: Can Proteas break Wankhede jinx?

Zee Media Bureau

New Delhi: Cricket fans are in for a real treat as two ODI heavyweights take to the field in a series decider at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

India and South Africa are evenly matched on paper, but the form of AB de Villiers tilts the contest in favour of the visitors.

Despite their skipper's two tons in four matches, the Proteas have not managed to keep MS Dhoni's men on the mat.

In Mumbai, not only will the South Africans have to fend off a resurgent Indian side, but also defy statistical odds to win the series.

The Proteas have never won an ODI match at the Wankhede Stadium.

1) Titan Cup – Final (November 6, 1996)

India won by 35 runs

2) Mohinder Amarnath Benefit Match (December 14, 1996)

India won by 74 runs

3) South Africa in India ODI Series - 5th ODI (November 28, 2005)

India won by 5 wickets

Interestingly, home town hero Rohit Sharma has never played an ODI match at the iconic venue.

The Mumbai lad will be hoping to put on a performance against the South Africans who will be out to break their jinx at the Wankhede Stadium.
