Watch: Virat Kohli does cradle celebration, dedicates 50 to daughter

Virat Kohli got to a brisk fifty against South Africa in the third and final ODI at Centurion on Sunday and then proceeded to whip out the ‘cradle’ celebration. Kohli dedicated his fifty to his daughter, Vamika, who was in the arms of his mother, Anushka Sharma at the Newlands and the video instantly went viral. 5⃣0⃣ for Virat Kohli 👏 #SAvIND pic.twitter.com/kQUx0Ae0OK — Doordarshan Sports (@ddsportschannel) January 23, 2022 The day, however, ended in disappointment for Kohli and his teammates after India lost the match by just 4 runs, allowing South Africa to complete a 3-0 whitewash. India’s formidable batting line-up was a letdown once again and despite half centuries by Virat Kohli (65 off 83 balls), Shikhar Dhawan (61 off 73 balls) and Deepak Chahar (54 off 34 balls), India were o...

KL Rahul blames lack of wickets in middle-overs, middle-order collapse for loss

India skipper KL Rahul blamed lack of wickets in the middle overs and below-par show by the middle order batters for the team’s 31-run defeat against South Africa in the ODI series-opener here on Wednesday. Resolute batting from home skipper Temba Bavuma (110) and Rassie van der Dussen (129 not out) took South Africa to a match-winning 296 for four as Indian bowlers struggled to take wickets. “It was a nice game. There’s so much to learn. We started off really well, we couldn’t get wickets in the middle. We’ll look to see how we get wickets in the middle overs and stop the opposition,” Rahul said at the post-match presentation ceremony. That's that from the 1st ODI. South Africa win by 31 runs.

Shikhar Dhawan proves his resilience & resourcefulness… yet again

Shikhar Dhawan, with his exuberant disposition, infuses the team with a sudden lightness. If there indeed hung a heavy air of tenseness around the team, with off-field developments stewing in the background, Dhawan’s presence provided the perfect antidote. There was the usual broad smile and laughter, jokes and banter flying round, as he and Virat Kohli breezed through their partnership — suddenly it felt like the good old times again — and there was a sense of India enjoying their cricket again. If he had converted his 79 into a hundred, he could have pulled out the moustache-twirls and thigh-slaps too. Dhawan came back as though he had never been away; as though he had always been there, like an invisible shadow. And not someone who is, these days, reduced to sporadic appearances, lik...

South Africa go 1-0 up after India self-destruct in first ODI

India’s inexplicable middle-order collapse ensured that fine half-centuries from Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli did not count for much as the team was handed a 31-run defeat by a resolute South Africa in the opening ODI here on Wednesday. Chasing a challenging 297, India were cruising at 138 for one before wickets fell in a heap dashing the hopes of the visitors who trail 0-1 in the three-match series. India’s innings ended at 265 for eight. South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma (110 off 143) and Rassie van der Dussen (129 not out off 96) had scored contrasting hundreds en route to their 204-run stand to take South Africa to 296 for four after opting to bat. That's that from the 1st ODI. South Africa win by 31 runs. Scorecard – https://t.co/PJ4gV8SFQb #SAvIND pic.twitter.com/NrRNxZgMNK —...

India vs South Africa: Deposed captains Virat Kohli, Quinton De Kock gear up for ODI series | Cricket News – Times of India

PAARL: Two deposed captains, Virat Kohli and Quinton de Kock, could play significant roles in a three-match one-day international series between South Africa and India, starting at Boland Park in Paarl on Wednesday. Both former skippers have the potential to be the leading batters for their respective sides. For Kohli, it will be the first ODI series since Rohit Sharma was named captain by the Indian selectors in December. Even though Sharma had to withdraw from the series in South Africa because of injury, the captaincy was not returned to Kohli but was passed to KL Rahul. Kohli, who captained India in 95 ODIs with a 65-27 win-loss ratio, made it clear after India's Test series defeat last week that he could speak about the coming one-day games purely "from a player's point of view".
