‘Freak, Rockstar, Fighter, Winner, Believer’ – Virat Kohli hailed for SA showing


I’ve a tip for you. If I had been in your place, I know exactly what I’d be doing tomorrow. I will be going to the book store, and buying the latest Oxford dictionary&hellip, just to improve my vocabulary. Indian cricket team coach Ravi Shastri is generally breathing fire and known to being fiery. But on Friday night, as he sat beside Virat Kohli, Shastri was all smiles, urging journalists to find the most recent dictionary to discover new words for the Indian captain. In the end, the tape recorder Virat Kohli on Friday had smacked his 35th ODI century, 3rd in the six series of matches and 4th in the South Africa tour, to help the Indian cricket team maul the hosts through 8 wickets and take the ODI series 5-1.

Kohli not only consolidated his claims as the best drummer through the formats with a dominant show in South Africa, he was the only drummer of both teams to mark a century in the Test series, but additionally kept on creating new records. His tally of 558 in six ODI at a whopping 186, inclusive of 3 hundreds of years and fifty, was the first occasion a batsman amassed more than 500 runs in a bilateral series. Kohli had topped the batting charts in the Test series too, scoring 286 runs at 47.66 with one century and fifty. Cricketers, past and present, as well as fans, took to Twitter on Friday evening to lavish praise on the Indian captain for his imperious form through the tour.
