He finished with 558 runs at an average of 186.00.

"You want to lead from the front with your performances", said Kohli.

"I've got eight or nine years left in my career so I want to make the most of it".

The only thing is, as every player will tell you, it is more hard to make a comeback than a debut in Indian cricket. If anything, I only look to help my team in any way I can. But the highlight of the pep talk was his praises for Anushka Sharma and how he credited his new wife for the motivation and constant support. "When I get into the middle, I need to be in that comfort zone and not let thoughts of captaincy get into my mind at that time".

The platform for Kohli was set by India´s bowlers, who bowled out the hosts for a mediocre 204. Shardul Thakur, who was picked in place of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar (to test the Bench strength), dazzled by picking up 4 wickets in 8.2 overs.

With his 35th century, Kohli completed the fastest 17000 runs in global cricket.

The Men in Blue romped away to a maiden series triumph in South Africa on the back of another Virat Kohli century on Friday.

Sachin Tendulkar is confident that Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will play a major role in India's performance in overseas conditions as the cricket world is "yet to figure out" a method to counter the two young wrist spinners.

However, Khaya Zondo subsequently steadied the innings for the home side as he shared a crucial 62-run stand with first drop AB de Villiers for the third wicket to save his side's bushes.

While it is safe to say that Dhoni's big-hitting ability is on the wane, the former World Cup-winning captain's experience and expertise behind the stumps is making him an indispensable member of the team, at least in the 50-over format.

"The tour is not over", said Kohli ahead of a three-match Twenty20 series starting at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday.

Speaking about South African captain Aiden Markram, who was asked to fil in shoes for injured Faf du Plessis, Kohli said that people should be patient with him.

"The guys rocked up with a very good attitude today and were prepared to go the distance, but unfortunately it wasn't the case", he said.

The Proteas had no answer as Kohli belted 129 not out, taking his tally for the series to a record 553, comfortably surpassing the previous milestone of 491 set by worldwide colleague Rohit Sharma in 2013. "The talent that I have got I want to utilize it for my country and team".

"It was a day where I felt really good. I think the pitch got better to bat on under lights". You just look at their bilateral record and they are one of the great sides in bilateral cricket.
