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

Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal

India's Virat Kohli set a new batting record as he put on another masterclass with an unbeaten century against hosts South Africa on Friday to secure an easy eight-wicket victory and win the one-day global series 5-1. "I would simply say he is the best batsman in the world now", Shastri declared at the post series media interaction. My wife has kept me going throughout the tour. "I don't want to be called anything‚ I am doing my job and I am not doing anyone a favor". He also advised a scribe to go to a book store and buy the latest version of the Oxford Dictionary to find the right moniker for India's skipper.

"You spoke of intensity". Otherwise they know what to expect.

The former Indian captain showered Kohli with lavish praise as he ended up scoring with 558 runs in his six innings making him the series's leading scorer at a staggering average of 186.00‚ and was named Player of the Series and became the first player in this format to score over 500 runs in a bilateral series.

Meanwhile Rochdale chairman Chris Dunphy said: "I was on the pitch last (Thursday) night, it's like a snooker table". However, the home side wasn't finished. "I don't think we were used to the pitch", explained Hill .

" The guys have shown a lot of character, particularly the two young spinners", Kohli said. And to then take that momentum into the one-day series and show the consistency they have shown over the last two weeks is fabulous. "Luckily for us, Kuldeep and Chahal have complemented each other beautifully", Shastri pointed out. Virat can be seen talking about Anushka in the said interview clip.

"They bring great variety - it's great for the viewer, it's great for the spectator to see that kind of variety when they come to watch a cricket match. With England also scheduled to host the 50-over World Cup next year, this tour is very important for us", the source added.
