  • India vs South Africa 6th ODI When and where to watch live streaming and broadcast

India earned a comprehensive eight-wicket victory in the sixth ODI at Centurion and Kohli took the honours of becoming the man of the match as well as the man of the series.

The Indian Cricket Team is having a ball in its South Africa tour when it comes to winning games after games. "It's very late in the series, but it's a positive that I was able to overcome that obstacle".

"I've got eight or nine years left in my career. Everyone is doing a job, they have the freedom to write and say what they want but it's very important that I don't change with that because my zone is very simple, it is simply doing hard work and performing for the team".

He said there was no greater honour than playing for and captaining his country.

"Yes, if I make a mistake I will come here and accept it".

I would be going to the bookstore and buying the latest Oxford dictionary, just to improve my vocabulary (in praise of Kohli).

The platform for Kohli was set by India´s bowlers, who bowled out the hosts for a mediocre 204. Shardul Thakur took highest four wickets for India cricket team. Also, Shikhar (Dhawan) at the top and Rohit (Sharma).

She was criticized for Virat's duck in ODI against England, despite the fact that she was in India during the match. The Indian captain's unbeaten knock was studded with 19 boundaries and two sixes.

Aside from Khaya Zondo, the rest of the Proteas were bad, and the manner in which they gifted their wickets to the Indians was atrocious as they were bowled out for just 204 in 46.5 overs.

After leading India to their maiden ODI series victory on South African soil, captain Virat Kohli thanked wife Anushka Sharma for being a pillar of strength during tough times.

Lungi picked up wickets of both Indian openers.

Chahal claimed the key wicket of AB de Villiers, bowling South Africa´s star batsman with a flipper when he shaped to cut. Kohli is also the only batsman in the world to average more than 50 in all three formats.

"The tour is not over", said Kohli ahead of a three-match Twenty20 series starting at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday. Talking in the post-match presentation, Virat said, "People who are close to me deserve a lot of credit. And during the course of that, I have mentioned that if you are thinking about the team, special things happen", the right-handed batsman said.

He ended the series by scoring aggregate of 558 runs. But like I mentioned, it is a pressure I enjoy and I would like to enjoy it more in the future, he added.

"I am not going to live in a dreamland right now and accept all the praise, sit here and feel good about this, because it doesn't matter to me. I think the pitch got better to bat on under lights".
