Indian skipper Virat Kohli must be a very happy man right now, as his team have dominated the South Africans in the ODI series so far.
After a comprehensive win in Durban, India continued their red hot form as they beat the hosts by nine wickets at Centurion earlier today.
Yuzvendra Chahal was the star for India, as the leg spinner picked up his first five wicket haul in international cricket. He was ably supported by his partner in crime, Kuldeep Yadav, as the pair picked up eight wickets between them.
In reply, Dhawan and Rohit started off in great style, as the openers gave them a wonderful start.
Kohli was extremely pleased after the win, and paid tribute to his bowlers who really set up the win for his side.
“We thought at the toss, the ball is going to do a bit in the morning. Was a much harder wicket than Durban. Bhuvi and Bumrah started really well. We didn’t let SA get too much up front.
“Spinners were outstanding again. To win like this obviously feels very good. What we thought in the morning, we did all those things right. We knew that we won’t get grass on the pitch.
“When it’s seaming it’s anyone’s game anyway. We have the quicks to back that. We knew the wickets were going to be hard and dry. Those two (wrist-spinners) are a handy bunch together.
“If we set up to chase down totals, we know exactly what we want to do. Rohit and Shikhar’s intent at the top is crucial. They started off well in the last game too. We back guys to play positive cricket.
Small totals, it’s always important to start positive. It’s a wonderful position to be in. We know their middle-order is inexperienced, and we look to cash in on that. The way our spinners are bowling, we are confident about continuing the same momentum.”
There was a funny moment during the match, when Kohli waved at a fan who was holding up a Virushka wedding picture. Kohli got married to Bollywood superstar Anushka Sharma back in December, as one of India’s most loved couples became the most talked about couple in India.
