Virat Kohli- Most runs in a bilateral series, 100 catches in ODIs

Virat Kohli

The run-machine Virat Kohli was at his usual best while chasing a modest target of 205 for victory in the final ODI. He registered his 35th ODI ton, his third of the series. Kohli's unbeaten 129 took his tally to 553 runs in the series, surpassing the previous record held by Rohit Sharma (491 runs against Australia in 2013) for most runs in a bilateral series.

The Indian captain also took his 100th catch (in 208 ODIs) during the sixth ODI at Centurion, thereby becoming the fifth Indian fielder to join the elite club of players with 100 or more catches in ODIs. Kohli joined the likes of Mohammad Azharuddin (156 catches), Sachin Tendulkar (140 catches), Rahul Dravid (125 catches) and Suresh Raina (100 catches) after achieving this milestone. 

As a captain, the 29 year-old also became the first ever Indian skipper to win a bilateral ODI series in South Africa.
