But in doing so, Kohli put on 140 runs with Shikar Dhawan for the second wicket. Then wickets kept falling, and I chose to hit out because I thought I might not have enough energy left. Nevertheless, India totally dominated the second half of the innings with Mandhana reaching her century in the 40th over. Chahal and Kuldeep have struck to take 21 wickets in the three matches at an average of 9.05.

It was a historic performance from India in several ways, as Mithali Raj and Co won the second ODI in South Africa by a whopping 178 runs.

The former Australian captain was not the only one praising Virat after his brilliant century.

Chahal dismissed Heinrich Klaasen and Duminy off consecutive overs a short while later to leave the hosts struggling at 95/4 in the 22nd over. The umpire had given him out off Rabada, however, replays showed he had an inside edge onto the front pad. In pursuit of 303, South Africa folded for 124, of which opener Lizelle Lee made 73 at a strike-rate of almost 100. In reply the hosts were bowled out for just 179.

The NYPD late previous year presented evidence before a grand jury; no criminal charges have yet been filed in any jurisdiction. Spokesman Greg Risling said it was unclear when a decision would be reached whether to charge the producer.

The last five wickets fell for the addition of just 50 with Chahal and Kuldeep inflicting the damage. Yet again we were not up to the mark. We've got ourselves to blame, have to try harder. We won't take them lightly.

It is an incredible feat considering that Kohli has achieved it in only 43 captaincy innings while the Kolkata left-hader needed 100 more visits for his 11. They are very fearless tossing the ball and asking the batsman to come out and play a risky shot. It's a bit about that and about confidence as well. Because I am a guy who likes to play with intensity. De Villiers has performed particularly well in pink, and scored the fastest hundred in ODI history at the Wanderers against West Indies three years ago.

He added: "The tour didn't start of too well but I knew I had to come in and get stuck in for us to compete in every game - it feels very good that it's coming off in winning causes". The slow-motion camera's revealed that the ball had nicked the bat before hitting his pads and he was given not-out!

Dhawan, at the other end, continued his merciless attack on the home bowlers, to bring up his 25th ODI fifty off 42 balls with a boundary off leg-spinner Imran Tahir. "I shared another good partnership with Shikhar and had a good stand with Bhuvi at the end as well". They are told to go for wickets at all times. [The spinners] We wanted to give them the pressure of defending today and it worked out.
