Centurion: Rain-gods seem to have showered their blessings as India tried desperately to avoid a white wash of the three-match ODI series against South Africa.
The Indian chase of the final one-dayer was delayed by hours due to rain at SuperSport Park here after the host completed their innings on Wednesday.
The covers were on early during the break as a precaution. Rain did not resume although the drizzle had subsided. Earlier, leading from the front, captain AB de Villiers (109) and record-making Quinton de Kock (101) slammed swashbuckling centuries to help South Africa end on 301/8 in the final one-day international at Super Sport Park in Centurion.
David Miller, chipped in with a cameo unbeaten knock of 56 from 34 balls, which included three sixes and five boundaries. De Villiers and De Kock added 171 runs for the fourth wicket to lead the hosts' fight-back from a precarious 28/3 in 7.4 overs.
De Kock became the fifth batsman to score three successive centuries in ODIs.
Brief scores: South Africa 301 for eight wickets (AB de Villiers 109, Quinton de Kock 101, David Miller 56 not out, Ishant Sharma 4/40).
