SA vs IND 2018, 3rd ODI: Harbhajan Singh in Awe of Virat Kohli
Is there anything in the world that can stop the juggernaut called Virat Kohli?
Well, for the time being, it seems impossible anyone can stop the India skipper from piling up runs in almost every match. In the Test series where none of the other players could score a century, Kohli scored a magnificent 153 in the second game, as he finished the series against South Africa as the leading run-scorer.
The 29-year old has continued his form in the ODI series too. He began the series with a match-winning knock of 112 and followed it up with an unbeaten knock of 46 in Durban. And as if those were not enough, he came up with another monumental knock to help India post a mammoth 303 for six in the ongoing third One-Day International in Cape Town.
On a pitch where stroke-making was not looking easy, Kohli looked class-apart. He came to the crease in the very second over after Kagiso Rabada dismissed Rohit Sharma for a duck, and remained till the very end to ensure India finish strongly.
The Delhi-born star played an unbeaten knock of 160 off 159 balls with the help of 12 fours and a couple of sixes. The knock also helped Kohli to surpass Sourav Ganguly and become the India skipper with most ODI centuries. Kohli has now scored 12 ODI centuries as a skipper. Overall, it was Kohli’s 34th ton in the 50-over format.
The latest knock from the India batting mainstay has left veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh in awe of him, as the latter took to Twitter to say the India captain is a player of a different level.
“Run machine @imVkohli kya baat hai Teri, yeh bandha alag level ka player hai ??????⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ @BCCI #IndvsSAm,” Harbhajan tweeted.
