Virat Kohli produced yet another batting masterclass to score his 34th ODI century and second of the ongoing series against South Africa. Kohli’s unbeaten 160 off 159 balls is the highest individual score by an Indian batsman against South Africa in South Africa, going past Sourav Ganguly’s 127 at Johannesburg in 2001.
The Indian skipper’s second highest ODI score helped India completely blow away the hosts in the third ODI as the visitors took a 3-0 unassailable lead in the six-match series.
Right after Kohli’s masterclass, Twitter was full of praise from past and current cricketers.
“He’s on a different level this bloke wow. What a player” Australian dashing opener posted on his twitter handle.
Sachin Tendulkar also had words of praise for Kohli.
“Stepping out on the field and scoring centuries has become a regularity for @imVkohli. Congratulations on your 34th ODI ton! Keep the runs flowing always. #INDvsSA” he wrote on his twitter handle.
