Virat Kohli’s men in blue gobbled up all the headlines in newspapers and are all awash with their praise as India crushed South Africa by 8 wickets in the 6th ODI in Centurion on Friday.
While our Prime Minister Narendra Modi was addressing students for ‘Pariksha pe charcha’ the previous day, our blue colts sealed the series with flying colours and created history by registering first ever series win in the ODIs on the South African soil.
Twitter exploded after their clinical win:
Indian Skipper was at his brutal best, and yet again, he made records tumble by becoming the highest scoring batsman in a bilateral series, he became the highest run-scoring captain in ODI series and scored the highest number of runs against South Africa.
India’s head coach Ravi Shastri feels that the Virat Kohli‘s brilliance makes him ‘world’s best batsman’ at the moment.
“Even after being two-zero down in the Test series, for them to show that kind of character to come back and win that Test match in Johannesburg on a spiteful pitch. And to then take that momentum into the one-day series and show the consistency they have shown over the last two weeks is fabulous,” Shastri said.
Praising Virat, Ravi Shastri asserts, “I would be going to the bookstore and buying the latest Oxford dictionary, just to improve my vocabulary (in praise of Kohli)”.
Coach also praised Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal for their consistent performance.
Every time he bats, he proves that the 22-yard pitch is his kingdom and he owns it. In the forefront during the whole series, Kohli scored staggering 558 runs against the Proteas.
“At this stage, I don’t feel like competing with anyone. It’s all about how I prepare for the game and what my work ethics are and how I am feeling on game day, Kohli said.
