Kohli breaks another record to slay South Africa

My fear, especially in the year of the World Cup, stems from the damage its scheduling could cause to the fitness of players.The team is overworked, though Kohli's superhuman fitness may be preventing us from realising that fact.

Kohli capped an exceptional personal performance by hitting 129 not out in the sixth one-day global in Centurion on Friday, taking his aggregate to a world bilateral one-day series record of 558 runs at an average of 186.

With a short interval for preparation after the ODI series that ended on Friday, Virat Kohli-led India will aim to repeat similar performance as they did in the one-off T20I series here against South Africa in 2006. "I became stronger and I have prepared really well to get back here". "My only motivation is getting into that frame of mind". In his post-match presentation speech, Virat said, "It has been a rollercoaster till now".

The key to consistency is not thinking too ahead of himself. I don't want any headlines. "She has been criticised in the past but she is one person who keeps me going". "The wait to get back into the team made me tougher and hungrier. Otherwise they know what to expect". "What matters is what the management thinks about me, what I think about the players and what the players think about me". That's all that matters to me. "Headlines change day in and day out", he added. Tomorrow I play a bad shot and get out for zero everyone will conveniently do what they want to do, so it's not my job to say anything about what I do. I have worked hard on my game and waited for my chance to come. Sharing the trailer, he tweeted, "Can't wait to watch my one and only in an avatar never seen before and I'm blown away already ❤". I kept myself every strong. That time was very important for me - everyone said there was a lot of new talent around but experience is equally important. "I am not doing anyone a favor", the skipper's statement showed that how much the criticisms in the past has hurt him.

While India's ODI juggernaut has rolled on, there have been questions raised about the quality of opposition playing ODI cricket and the skipper's views made it clear that he wasn't amused one bit. When someone is down, but you have people like them supporting you, it feels great.

"Now, such questions are being asked".

Alongside Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhwawan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Hardik Pandya will look to make the most of their capabilities. "I would have rather played top players in all formats in bilateral series against top teams like India", he said. So we understand where we have come from. Last game, I was not in the right kind of mindset.
