Scorecard

Dhawan's brilliant 109 from 105 balls lifted India to 289 for seven in its 50 overs, but after rain intervened in the contest, South Africa was left chasing 202 from 28 overs, a target it passed with 15 balls to spare to stay alive in the six-match series.

The home side had previously had to battle against India's wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal in the series, but tore into them with a vicious assault that yielded 119 runs in just 11.3 overs to ease them past its victory target.

India leads the series 3-1 heading into the fifth match, to be played in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday.
