Ravi Shastri gives a cheeky reply when asked about Virat Kohli's batting

Ravi Shastri gives a cheeky reply when asked about Virat Kohli's batting

In the bowling charts, Jasprit Bumrah, with his tally of eight wickets in six matches, climbed up to the top, and now holds the first position jointly with Rashid Khan, who bagged 16 wickets in five matches to cripple Zimbabwe in an ODI series in Sharjah.

Overseas Test series wins will come - the only places he has captained India in full series are West Indies and South Africa. The run-feast saw his ODI ranking climb to 909 points, making him the 12 player in history to reach the 900-point mark. The Indian skipper, now sitting on 870 runs in the series against South Africa across all formats, is 130 runs short of reaching another milestone - 1,000 runs on a single tour by any batsman, after West Indies great Sir Viv Richards.

After scoring 286 runs in the three-match Test series, Kohli scored 558 runs in ODIs and the 29-year old scored 26 runs in the first T20I bringing his tally to 870 runs.

Even in the Test matches it was the first time that the Indian bowlers took all 60 wickets to fall.

However, if he manages to peel off 130 more runs in the two innings, he will lead the table and will overtake Sir Vivian Richards, who is the only man to breach the 1000 run mark in a single series. Kohli's aggregate is the best since Lara reached 911 points in March 1993.

India play South Africa in the second T20I at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Wednesday.

After India recorded a historic ODI series win against the Proteas, Team India head coach Ravi Shastri took a gentle dig at the media. The latest to join the bandwagon of praising team India's performances is former South Africa captain Graeme Smith.

Afghanistan also moved up one position up in ICC Rankings for Teams, going past Zimbabwe to become the 10th-ranked team.

Bumrah has moved up two spots to No 1 after taking eight wickets against South Africa, which gave him a total of 787 points - joint with Afghanistan's Rashid Khan.
