India has been a formidable side in international cricket over the past couple of years, especially in the ODI and T20I format. They have been across the globe and have featured among the top-ranked teams in the limited-overs format. Most recently, the Men in Blue humbled South Africa in the ongoing ODI series with one match remaining.
Meanwhile, they also emerged victorious for the maiden time in a bilateral ODI series in South Africa. To multiply Virat Kohli and his men’s delight, the Indian team also ended the series as the number one team in the ODI rankings. Quite rightfully, Kohli expressed his delight to the media after India created history following their comprehensive victory in Port Elizabeth.
A happy Kohli
“It’s a wonderful feeling to have created some history. The guys really got stuck in, with the bat and the ball and in the field as well.” Kohli was quoted as saying in a recent interaction with the media. Kohli also talked about his experience of playing in the rainbow nation while indicating some changes for the upcoming game in Centurion.
“I have been enjoying South Africa. It’s a good place to play cricket. I knew I didn’t have to change a lot and the runs would come. We want to win 5-1 but there might be a scenario to give a few (other) guys a chance.” The Indian skipper added. Virat Kohli, himself, has been exceptional with the willow in the ongoing series.
He scored a couple match-winning centuries to shepherd India to glory in a couple of games at Durban and Cape Town respectively. The final game of the series will be played in at the SuperSport Park in Centurion. While India would hope for yet another victory, South Africa will be looking to salvage pride going into the T20I series which starts on the 18th of February at the Wanderers in Johannesburg.
