love the passion and intensity in brings 

 

he is bullying saffies . You can see they intimidated by him . Rubbing their noses in it . You can see they petrified of him , winning the mind games 

Man we are going into the 6th and final game of the series overseas after being 4-1 up.

 

I mean this never happens, but get used to it with Kohli.

 

What a champion captain

Pak won 3 match ODI series which means Meh...winning 6 match ODI series is big stuff.


When Ind does it..they are daaaaaaaaaa greatest in the universe. Pak does it..meh.

Series win is a series win.

Its not that. When you play 3 match series, 1 fluke game and you win the series. Longer the series, more often stronger teams win. Pak's win in SA is similar to SL winning 2 match test series in Eng by 1-0. India toured next and were exactly 1-0 after 2 tests but Eng came back strongly and won remaining 3 tests to win the series.

At last .... one more barrier broken ...Feels happy and relieved. Now need to make it 5-1

 

And beating this world no:1 SAF team who whitewashed the Aussies 5-0  even with out Amla and Devilliers some months before makes it even satisfying.

Long live king kohli

 

Some say Kohli is similar to Ponting with his aggressiveness (cockiness)

Hated when Ponting bashes the opposition to shambles during his heydays

 

Wonder how much opposition’s moral would be whenever Kohli has the last laugh. We are lucky to someone on our side for once.

 

SA commentary team are having a nightmarish time unlike the previous series’s where they were having fun at Indians (can’t handle pace n bounce blah blah)

Congratulations, well played. Weakest SA team ever to field against a visiting team  Phehlukelibido! really played all 5 ODIs!

the hurt seeps through! ABDV, Amla, DeKock, Miller, Morkel, Rabada, Ngidi, Tahir + Faf till he was injured - if this is a weak team then please tell me what is the strongest SA team?

Except they played in different teams. ABDV didn't play when Faf, QDK played. Faf gone afrer 1st ODI, got them a new young captain,  Look at any of the previous tours of SA and they had a full proper team. WIth the wrist spinners and top order flourishing , the weakest link in Indian team is the MO that matched with the SA MO performance. Our bowling and top order won the series over SA bowling and top order.

What did DeKock do in the 3 games? Or ABDV in teh 2 he played? Even if you take their best performances, they fall short of India's. 

 

On Paper, Amla >> Dhawan as an opener and Rabada/ Morkel > Bhuvi/ Bumrah. 

 

The only ODI SA has won so far was due to their middle order of Miller & Klassen. India has had only 3 batsmen and 3 bowlers click the whole series... it is a team achievement that we still beat the world #2 side at their home!

Lead from the front with the bat through out this tour. Just amazing how he performed in every game and lead from the front with this mediocre batting otherwise. This is what we have lacked in the past. We should have at least one an ODI series in South Africa, but we could never since we did not make the best of our batting abilities in the past.

 

Kohli's leading from the front with the bat as captain was a big difference, with spinners being the bigger difference.

 

What a captain.

Great bowling by Chahal and Kuldeep also through out the series.

 

Just needs to make few changes by dropping certain players, and he can be tat closest thing to perfect captain we can ask for.

 

Well done Kohli and team India.

 

 

 

 

Would have won the series without him too. Biggest difference was the bowling and spinners never performed like this in SA.

 

Chahal and Kuldeep were absolute gold in this series and this win is mostly due to them.

 

Margin of wins were too big to cover mediocre batting.

2 ODIs India won against a stong SA team (Ist and 5th). The other 2 were weak SA teams. In any case, it doesn't take away anything from the effort of the team and Kohli the energiser bunny leading from the front.

Didn't they win with the same team last match, so what kind of weird logic are you using.No south african players past or present was stopping this Indian team from winning.

 

This is not putrid Pakistani team who lucked out in CT or won 1992 world cup due rain rule.Even with all the dead weight it is carrying it still whopped SA in SA.

How were they going to win the series without him, he was leading the chase of 270 in first match and he scored 160 and put a total beyond their reach in 3rd match.Chasing 150 vs chasing 300 makes a lot of difference.

I am pretty sure if the match was not curtailed, if SA had to bat all 50 overs, India would have won the 4th ODI as well. The twenty20 tee off was what got them their win, Iyer dropped Miller as well, and Chahal had got Miller earlier on a no-ball. It was a fluke win for that SA team. They have been bamboozled by the wrist spinners.

This series also busts the myth of spinners captain (Dhoni).

 

Perfect example of there is nothing like spinners captain from India. Being a spinners captain just means you're are poor at handling other aspects of game.

 

Give good spinners to any Indian captain on spin friendly pictures and he will be do well.

Indian team is a talented bunch but they are still lacking basic stuff which will haunt them in tournament like WC...fielding coach should be sacked and get some professional help ...catching & running between is still pathetic and last but not least middle order needs something better (Dhoni & Pandya are two extreme...too much dependency on top 3 batsman).

But isn't Dhoni the 3rd spinner in the team, 50% of the wkts of Chahaldeep is supposed to go to Dhoni.
