The series was meant to be the first step in the World Cup process. But after being thrashed 5-1 on their own turf by India, South Africa could only reflect that their first step was a backward one.[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

A chastening couple of weeks came to a close on Friday (February 16) with India romping to an eight-wicket win with almost 18 overs to spare. South Africa captain Aiden Markram insisted that his side were not "embarrassed", merely "disappointed". But with emotions put aside, there was only one way to gauge their performances in a series where all five of their defeats were by a wide margin.[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

"Obviously we have taken a step back, because results-wise and performance-wise we haven't moved forward," said Markram. "But having said that I'd rather it happened now than two or three months before the World Cup starts or during the World Cup.[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

[**] "So there are lessons we can learn, but the most important thing is not to make the same mistakes going forward. I did feel during the series that we made mistakes from previous games, so we didn't learn well from our lessons. It's crucial now that we dig into what went wrong and rectify it so it doesn't happen again in the future."[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

[**] Markram might have been talking about individual mistakes and lessons, but his words might apply to the selection of personnel going forward. South Africa's intention was to use the series to identify which players deserve to be part of the pool considered for the World Cup. Ironically there were as many cases of individuals playing themselves out of that group as into it.[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

[**] Markram said he had not yet thought of whether anyone had played themselves out of the one-day side, but only Lungi Ngidi made a strong statement for inclusion going forward. Khaya Zondo and Heinrich Klaasen had their moments. But some difficult decisions must be made over the future of JP Duminy, who sat out the final game.[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

[**] While the death bowlers did their jobs, otherwise South Africa had to look to the opposition for their lessons. "If you look at how they set their innings up, there was always one of the top three in for the 40th over, and that's crucial in this format," noted Markram. "Their bowlers controlled the middle period well - they've got two good quality spinners - and they strike up front with the new ball. They tick all their boxes and we're going to work hard to do the same thing."[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

[**] On a personal front, Markram's first full series in one-day cricket was hijacked by the added responsibility of captaining. Rather than being allowed to consolidate a place in the side, he closed the series with 127 runs from six innings, leaving him to admit that, as coach Ottis Gibson had suggested, the extra burden of captaincy had weighed on him.[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

[**] "He's got full right to say that just by watching with the naked eye," said Markram. "I wasn't playing the usual game I do play. We did chat about it and today when I was batting I felt in a more comfortable space. I felt I was structuring my innings how I would if I was batting in a franchise game. It's very late in the series but it's a positive that I was able to overcome that obstacle. It's moving in the right direction I suppose."[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

[**] The 23-year-old added that he had no regrets about being handed the captaincy, insisting that the learning curve would stand both him and the South African squad in good stead over the next 18 months. It also gave him the opportunity to observe a highly successful opposing captain at close quarters, with Virat Kohli offering a batting masterclass over the course of the series.[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000

[**] "His desperation to win games for his side is massive, and that's why he conducts himself like he does," said Markram. "It's all from a competitive point of view, it's nothing malicious. That desperation is shown when he bats - he doesn't just get his side close to the line, he gets them over it, as we saw again tonight. So there are a lot of things I can learn from him. There are a lot of things I can learn from their team as a whole, and from us as a whole. I'm taking little pieces from here and there."[**]18 Thursday October 2018 023334000000
