India aim to carry winning momentum against South Africa in T2OIs

I have worked hard for the past two years, so when I saw my India jersey I felt a bit emotional that I got the jersey after quite a while.

Alongside Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhwawan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Hardik Pandya will look to make the most of their capabilities.

India, who lost the three-match test series 2-1, now play South Africa in three Twenty20 internationals at end of their two-month tour. The legendary Indian cricketer amassed an unbelievable 100 centuries and scored some 34,000 runs across all global formats.

Duminy also threw his weight behind AB de Villiers who had an underwhelming ODI series and was hopeful of the big man firing in the T20Is. My only motivation is to get into that frame of mind. "I think the pitch got better to bat on under lights", Kohli told reporters. Virat Kohli has put forth a narrative that he has made it habitual to score centuries and the manner he is going in it seems like he would easily go past Sachin Tendulkar's record. Kohli said that people said a lot of things initially but Anushka encouraged him because of which he could perform so well in the one-day matches. He added that "I don't want any tags, any headlines, I just go out there do my job".

Yet to have featured in South Africa, Raina and Jaydev Unadkat worked on getting familar with the conditions by spending time in the nets. I only look to help my team. "I thought to myself, 'I'm not giving up, (I) want to play for the country, and (I) want to play with all my heart".

India coach Ravi Shastri has declared his captain Virat Kohli as the best batsman in the world across all formats. By the grace of God, I'm healthy and leading my team. "Have some compassion. She has always only given me positivity".

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. Kohli admitted that he did not give himself much time to prepare for the Test series. Suresh Raina is one of them. India's spin dup of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal picked up 33 wickets in the six-match series to hurt the hosts and run riot.

Dhawan and Kohli steadied the Indian innings and after Dhawan's departure, it was left to seasoned campaigners Virat Kohli and the new No.4 batsman (in ODIs) Ajinkya Rahane to steer India to a comfortable 8-wicket victory with more than 17 overs to spare. "We are expecting best performances from the Indian team, in the World Cup too".
