Here are 5 talking points from T20I series.
Rohit Sharma is a good captain
Virat Kohli's injury meant Rohit had to take up the role of captain.
He has already proven his worth as a captain in the IPL and yesterday he proved that he can do it at the international level too.

Bhuvi has been India's standout performer with the ball in South Africa and his stock is only rising.
Raina makes a case for a regular spot
Suresh Raina was dropped despite brilliant performances against England and now he has again proved that he is worth a shot in the shortest format of the game.
In the 3 matches that he played, Raina scored 89 runs at an average of 29.66 and a strike rate of 153.44.
His big hitting in the start helped India get to a massive totals consistently.
Shikhar Dhawan has been India's saviour
There is a time when your best player has to step up and Dhawan did exactly that in 3rd T20I.
With Rohit gone and Kohli not a part of the XI, Dhawan knew he had to play a big knock. He struggled but kept the scoreboard ticking.
Dhawan finished as the top scorer of the T20I series with 143 runs to his name.
Ageing like wine
MS Dhoni proves his critics wrong
Several critics have been gunning for 36-year-old MS Dhoni to hang his boots from international cricket.
However, he proved it yet again that he is vital for India with his blistering knock in the second T20I where he scored an unbeaten 52 to take India to 188.
Dhoni finished series with 80 runs at an average of 40 and a strike rate of 160.00
