It must have been Team India’s first win in the six-match series against South Africa, but it was Virat Kohli’s 33rd ODI century and MS Dhoni’s winning shot that got fans deliric.
Kohli made 112 runs from 119 balls and Rahane 79 from 86 balls, taking the game beyond the reach of the hosts. This happened just after the India team lost the Test series against South Africa.
Kohli and former India captain Dhoni’s stellar performance on-field also ended South Africa’s two-year winning reign in ODIs at home ever since it was beaten by England in February 2016.
But more than anything, fans of the gentleman’s game on social media especially Twitter were ecstatic after seeing Dhoni finishing the game in style.
MSD smashed Kagiso Rabada for a boundary in the 46th over to seal the victory for India.
