A blur of outrageous shot-making abilities with each batsman capable of switching roles effortlessly makes India's top-three the envy of the ODI world. And with that, they have sealed the No 1 spot in the ICC ODI rankings! Batting on 93, Kohli called for a two only to be caught short of the crease by a sharp Ramnaresh Sarwan.

The incident happened in 7th over of the innings as South Africa began the chase. India are right back in the game. Two wickets again as he had the ideal leg-spinner to castle David Miller. But we lost a couple more shortly thereafter and that set us back. In the end, the opposition team was reduced to 201 runs in 42.2 overs. On the flip side, they have been concealing India's middle-order frailties, which is bound to get exposed every once in a while, like it did at the Wanderers.
