Going into the fifth ODI which will be played in Port Elizabeth, South Africa will be looking forward to continuing their winning form.

The host would be looking to keep the series alive and go into the final match of the series with an aim to level the series with the tourists leading the series 3-1.

India, on the other hand, will be looking forward to getting back to winning ways and seal the series.

However, India’s record at the St. George’s stadium in Port Elizabeth is something the fans will be worried about. India has never tasted success at the venue having lost all the five matches.

Adding more miseries to India’s record at the St. George’s Park is that they even had a loss to their name against Kenya in 2001.

India’s highest score at the venue is 179/9 vs South Africa in 1997, while the lowest score is 142/6 in a rain-affected game.

This is the only venue in the world where India has played two or more ODI’s and have never won a match.

India lost the fourth ODI by five wickets via D/L method. The Indian spinners were tested for the first time in the series, as the South African batsmen took the attack to them.
