It was time for celebrations in the Indian camp as India got off to a winning start in the ODI campaign. It was Kohli's 33rd ODI ton which helped India overhaul South Africa's total of 269 and take a 1-0 lead in the series.
The ODIs have presented a very different team under Virat Kohli, one which is positive and is ready to take challenges head-on. Their performance at Durban and their resounding victory is very much a first hand proof of it.
The cricketing fraternity celebrated an Indian win and Kohli's return to form. Here are some of the best tweets celebrating the occasion.
Was a matter of time before Kohli got that century in South Africa. This has been an innings of total command. Absolute one-day perfection— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) February 1, 2018
As clinical as it gets. This is not just a victory but a statement. Kohli and Rahane were outstanding. #INDvSA— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) February 1, 2018
Congratulations India on a very comprehensive victory. While Kohli and Rahane were outstanding, Chahal and Kuldeep ‘s spell was a big difference as well. #INDvSA— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) February 1, 2018
