It would also be India's first series win against South Africa after February 2010 when India beat visiting South Africa for the last time in a three-match ODI series 2-1 at Home. A pull of paceman Kagiso Rabada was a stamp of Kohli's class.
The final Test of the three-match series will be a day-night encounter at the Kensington Oval in Barbados starting June 23, said Sri Lanka Cricket. The wrist-spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav were once again lethal with the ball as they picked eight wickets in between them to run through the Pakistani batting line-up. The legend of Virat Kohli is growing with each passing day and if he continues to go with the speed at which he is going, the day is not too far when he will go past Sahcin Tendulkar's record of 100 hundreds in global cricket. The pair put on 140 runs at almost a run a ball and it was obviously that South Africa would have a lot to do if they were ever to be contenders in this match.
Razzak then took wickets in consecutive deliveries, removing Danushka Gunathilaka (13) and captain Dinesh Chandimal (0), who earlier won the toss and chose to bat.
Kohli magic leads India to big win over South Africa
The latest player to join the list was wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock, who suffered a wrist injury in the second ODI. Unfazed, Kohli continued to accumulate runs at a steady pace, going to his century in the 40th over off just 120 balls.
Apart from new-ball bowler Marizanne Kapp and legspinner Dane van Niekerk, every other South Africa bowler leaked more than six runs an over.
South Africa will look to bounce back from yet another chastening defeat in the fourth ODI, which takes place on Saturday in Johannesburg.
Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli made up for the loss of Rohit with a 140-run partnership, during which both batsmen surpassed their half-centuries.

Thanks to Kohli's superb performance with the bat, India finished on 303/6 off their 50 overs. His place will be taken by Heinrich Klaasen, who also opens.
Earlier, South Africa won the toss and elected to field first. The Delhi right-hander kept the scorecard ticking along even as South Africa struck at regular intervals after the dismissal of the left-handed opener.
Duminy opted to review the decision, but it didn't save him as replays showed that the ball was pitching in line and going on to hit leg stump. From 79 for 1, South Africa slipped to 95 for 4, leaving David Miller and the rest of the middle and lower-middle order with too much to do. "We've got plans of how to counter their spin, but unfortunately the execution hasn't been good enough", he added.

Gayoom's lawyer and nephew Maumoon Hameed said on Twitter that his uncle had been informed of the imminent transfer by police. Several countries have warned against travel to the country, which depends heavily on tourism, at the peak of the season.
Kohli came up with another sublime performance on the Newlands track that was unusually slow and also had spongy bounce that made it hard for most batsmen. "They are told to go for wickets at all times". Kohli promised to up the ante in the remaining three games.
