NEW DELHI: Shikhar Dhawan scored his 13th ODI hundred to help India post 289/7 against South Africa in the fourth one-day internationals of the six-match series at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Saturday.

In the process, Dhawan (109) became the first Indian batsman to score a century on his 100th ODI and ninth overall. The opener added 158 runs for the second wicket with skipper Virat Kohli (75) to lay the foundation of India innings. Among South African bowlers, Lungi Ngidi (2/52) and Kagiso Rabada (2/58) took two wickets each.

The match was stopped for almost 50 minutes by lightning and thunderstorm, when India were 200/2 in 34.2 overs.

India suffered a mini slump after the resumption of play, as the visitors lost three wicket in 5.3 overs, and it was a crucial 37-run partnership between M S Dhoni and Shreyas Iyer for the fifth wicket that revived the innings and took the score near 250 mark.

Iyer (18) became the second victim of Ngidi, as the young batsman hit straight to Chris Morris at long-on. Rabada then dismissed Hardik Pandya (9) to further hampered Indian run charge.

Dhoni remained unbeaten on 42, hitting a six and three fours in his 43-balls innings, while adding a crucial 20 runs with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (5) for the seventh wicket.

After a decent start, adding 20 for the opening wicket, Rohit Sharma mistimed a Rabada delivery in the fourth over and the bowler took a brilliant low catch on his follow through to give the Proteas an early breakthrough. Rohit struggled to get going in the match, except for the one cover drive for four in the second over off Rabada, and played 13 balls for his five runs.

Dhawan and Kohli then stabilised the innings as they took India to 178/1 in 31 overs, from 20/1 in 4 overs. Dhawan reached fifty-run mark off 53 balls, with the help of five boundaries, before Kohli scored his 46th ODI fifty off 56 balls, which included a six and five fours.

The duo though started the partnership cautiously and at one point managed to score just 13 runs in five overs (from 8 to 13 overs). Dhawan broke the shackle by hitting two fours off Morris in the 14th, and soon their fifty-run stand came up as India reached 78/1 in 15 overs.

Kohli signalled the change in approach with a straight six off Ngidi, the first of the match, over the long off in the 17th over. Dhawan then brought up 100 for India in the 19th with a huge six over deep mid-wicket. The run rate, which had hovered below five, began to climb rapidly as they scored boundaries freely and took just 5.5 overs more to take India to 150-run mark.

Morris broke the stand when he dismissed Kohli in the 32nd over to give South Africa a chance to claw back in the game. Kohli smashed a six and seven fours in his 83-ball 75 knock.

Dhawan soon inked his name in the record book by scoring a century in his 100th one-dayer. A straight drive for four brought up his 13th ODI hundred off 99 balls, hitting two sixes and ten fours.
