S.Africa put unchanged India in to bat in third ODI

39;On A Different Level': David Warner Lauds Virat Kohli After 34th Century Virat Kohli became the Indian ODI captain with most hundreds to his name

Virat Kohli's 34th ODI century helped India take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the ODI series against South Africa after beating the hosts by 124 runs in the third ODI at Cape Town.

Cape Town - Indian captain Virat Kohli called on his players to show no mercy to their South African counterparts for the remainder of the one-day worldwide series.

While Kohli remained unbeaten on 160 off just 159 balls, Shikhar Dhawan made a useful 76 off 63 deliveries.

For all the doubt that was cast on India for playing outside the subcontinent for the first time in two years, they are in a surprisingly good position.

Virat Kohli's obsession with fitness along with his batting talents were on exhibition on Wednesday as 100 off his unbeaten 160 runs came in 1s, 2s and 3s!

AB de Villiers and regular captain Faf du Plessis were both sidelined by finger injuries, De Villiers for the first three matches and Du Plessis for the series. The wristspinners again spelled the doom for the hosts as the pair of Kuldeep Yadav (4/23) and Yuzvendra Chahal (4/46) shared eight wickets to bowl out South Africa for 179 in chase of 304.

In an interview to a Pakistani website, Miandad pointed out Kohli's technical prowess and uncanny knack to rescue India from hard situations and guide them home as the hallmark of a great batsman.

Kohli stitched a 140-run stand for the second wicket with Shikhar Dhawan. The Proteas do possess fantastic bowlers who have the potential to force an Indian collapse, but with India two games up, it will still be a tall task. And the list has only grown with Quinton de Kock (left wrist injury) ruled out before the third ODI.

Kohli also broke another record by Ganguly - that of the highest individual score by an Indian batsman against the Proteas in South Africa. MS Dhoni leads the way with 216 sixes. Not often SA are troubled at home, but this series has been fascinating and Cape Town ODI will be an exciting affair.

Kohli has been simply unstoppable in the 50-over format of late and today's match-winning effort was his fourth three-figure score in the last six ODI s.

42 - This was the 42nd time that Virat Kohli has been involved in a 300+ team total in ODIs since 2010. That's why I train so much because I am a guy who likes to play with intensity.

Kohli (on 0*) survived an early lbw shout off Kagiso Rabada (1-54) in the third over.

Chahal repeated the trick to dismiss Duminy, who used his team's final review unsuccessfully, and South Africa crumbled in the aftermath to fall to a chastening loss. In this passage of play, Kohli brought up his hundred off 119 balls, including seven fours.

Australia hosted New Zealand for the first-ever Test played under lights with a pink ball at the Adelaide Oval in November 2015. The previous highest was 148 against Pakistan at Dhaka. This was also Dhoni's 400th ODI dismissal.
