|India captain Virat Kohli slammed his 34th ODI hundred on Wednesday against South Africa, reaching the landmark in 101 fewer innings than Sachin Tendulkar.He remained unbeaten on 160 - this was his third score over 150 and helped India post 303/6 from their 50 overs. Chasing that, the hosts were bowled out for 179 runs from 40 overs -- handing the visitors a 124-run victory in the process.
Kohli scored his 34th ODI hundred in his 197th innings while Tendulkar had reached the landmark in his 298th innings against Namibia in 2003. Kohli has now hit 55 international hundreds, the fifth most in history.
While Tendulkar had brought up his 34th ton in his 298th innings (vs Namibia in the 2003 World Cup), Kohli reached there in only his 197th innings.Kohli also eclipsed another Indian record - he overtook Sourav Ganguly's 127 to register the highest ODI score by an Indian against South Africa in South Africa.
Kohli has been in sublime form over the Dave Schultz Jersey past two years and in South Africa, he http://www.officialpelicansstore.com/Jrue_Holiday_Jersey has easily been the best batsman from either side. The 29-year-old India captain finished as the highest run-scorer in http://www.authenticmapleleafsshops.com/authentic-19-joffrey-lupul-jersey.html the three-Test series and is leading the charts in the ODI series.
Kohli also went past Ganguly's record of most runs scored Authentic Amara Darboh Jersey by an Indian against South Africa in a series. The Prince of Kolkata had scored 285 from five matches in 1999-20 when the Proteas toured India.
Not only that, he also overtook Womens TJ Brodie Jersey Mohammad Azharuddin as the leading run-scorer by an Indian captain in South Africa in a bilateral series. Azhar had scored 232 in a seven-match series against the South Africans back in 1992.
He now needs to score 31 runs more to become the leading run-scorer in a series between India and South Africa. Currently, AB de Villiers holds the record for most runs scored in a series between the two countries. He hammered 358 runs from five matches when South Africa toured India in 2015.
De Kock is second with 342 (2013-14), followed by Kepler Wessels at third with 342 (1992-93) and Faf du Plessis, who hit 323 in 2015. Kohli sits fifth with 318 runs and has three matches to break AB's record.
This http://www.officialcowboysnflstore.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_ROBERT_NEWHOUSE_JERSEY.html was Kohli's third hundred of the South African tour and his second in three ODIs. Earlier in January, Kohli had struck a classy 153 in the second Test in Centurion but that effort came in a losing cause.
Last Thursday, Kohli had smashed his maiden ODI hundred in South Africa. The fluent 112 in the first ODI in Durban helped India start off on a strong note.Kohli enjoyed a sensational run 2016 across formats. He did even better in 2017 and finished as the highest run-scorer in ODIs, amassing 1460 runs including six hundreds and seven fifties from 26 matches. discount nfl jerseys baseball jerseys cheap cheap nfl jerseys usa nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale baseball jerseys wholesale
