Bangladesh Under 19s won by 9 wickets (DLS Method)
Du Plessis lamented the loss of off-spinner Simon Harmer, who signed a Kolpak contract in 2016 and has not appeared for South Africa since then.
The Proteas could manage to add only a single run to their overnight total before Nadeem secured the last two wickets in successive balls.
South Africa were 132-8 at the close of play with India requiring two wickets to wrap up a series sweep over Faf du Plessis' men.
"Those catches, they stick or they don't. So unfortunately it wasn't our way, it was Rohit's. He played well, so well done to him."
South Africa were in trouble at nine for two, with Indian fast bowlers sending the opposition openers back to the pavilion in Ranchi.
"If he starts coming good top of the order, it changes everything for the Indian team, even when you're touring."
Sharma, on 117, combined with Ajinkya Rahane, on 83, to put on an unbeaten 185-run stand after the hosts were wobbling at 39-3.
