Rohit Sharma silenced his critics in no uncertain manner when he scored the 17th century of his One-day global career in the 5th ODI against South Africa at St. George's Park in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday. Rohit's 17th ODI hundred set up India's series-clinching win.
"It's been a collective effort to create history".
"Very pleased. Another convincing win for us and I thought the guys really got stuck in, with the bat, with the ball and on the field as well". "It's a must-win game for them, we have the lead and the advantage so we would like to put some decent runs on the board for them to chase down". The guys have worked hard for it.
Lindsey Vonn finally on way to South Korea after lengthy flight delay
But her journey to Pyeongchang for the 2018 Winter Olympics has been a long road littered with horrific injuries and setbacks. When asked about the gold medal, her canned answer became, "it's heavy".
As far as Playing XI is concern, India are going with the same squad that slump to a five-wicket defeat at the hands of the home side in the fourth ODI in Johannesburg. For now, 4-1 feels great. "We want to win 5-1 for sure, that doesn't change, but there'll be a chance for others to step in as well".
Asked about Kohli's aggressive brand of leadership, the former South African skipper said, "I am not saying aggression is what he is offering, but it's more the attitude that I can back myself, win the battle and come out on top".
Looking to overcome his poor run of form then, Rohit started off slowly against Morne Morkel (0/44 in 10 overs) and Kagiso Rabada (1/58 in 9 overs), with the former bowling out two maiden overs. Kuldeep Yadav took four wickets, including three in an over, to wrap up the South African innings for 201. For instance, Kohli ran 100 of his 160 runs at Newlands while the second highest scorer, Shikhar Dhawan, with 76 runs, made just 28 of his runs in singles, doubles and triples. The likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer and MS Dhoni failed to provide the acceleration needed in the closing stages as India went from 200-2 in 34 overs to eventually finish on 289-7.

When Miller did go, this time lbw to Chahal, new man Phehlukwayo took one ball to take a look at the bowling. Bhuvneshwar Kumar added some crucial runs - 19 off 20 balls - to take India past the 270-run mark.
It is unlikely the team would look beyond an opening combination featuring Raj and Smriti Mandhana, given Raj's prolific returns of 49*, 36, 62 and 73* in her last four T20I outings and Mandhana's established role at the top of the order.
Virat Kohli has been in outrageous form ever since setting foot in the Rainbow Nation.
