Virat Kohli receives Test Championship Mace

The teams are locked at 1-1 in the series, ensuring there's something to play for in the final game of India's two-month tour. In that scenario, it is unlikely that there will be any changes in the rankings.

First they won the last Test by 63 runs and then surprised the South Africa by winning the One-day global series with an unexpected margin of 5-1. It took India's spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar who used all his experience to snatch victory for India. Before the tour, Kohli had no centuries to his name in South Africa, he got one in Test and plundered three in ODIs by the end of the tour.

The India vs South Africa Series has reached its last leg and for all the cricketers out there, it has been nothing more than interesting.

Shikhar Dhawan was let off twice by Tabraiz Shamsi on 9 and 34, and South Africa paid dearly for it. Raina walked home with the Man of the Match Award for scoring 43 runs and taking a crucial wicket, while Kumar got the Man of the Series Award.

The Proteas now turn their attention to the four-match Test series against Australia, which starts on Thursday, March 1 in Durban. The big moment came when Hardik Pandya dismissed Heinrick Klaasen cheaply as Bhuvneshwar took a sharp catch at mid-off. The first instance was against Zimbabwe in 2013. His tally of 7 wickets is the most by an Indian in a T20 bilateral series. Duminy's wicket left the hosts needing 53 runs off the last three and it looked as if the game was being played as a formality.

India then restricted the hosts for 165 for six to end the challenging tour on a high.

He added that it is "very, very important that we have offensive capability, as well as defensive capability, within the schools". But the National Rifle Association (NRA) and many Republicans have resisted those calls.

Sridevi's mom was Tamilian and father was Telugu and maybe this helped her effortlessly act in movies of different languages. But when she appears before the camera she transforms herself, like a "fire" she will be electrifying, Rajinikanth recalled.

Rangers Trade Rick Nash to Bruins
The Bruins have acquired Rick Nash from the New York Rangers, the Rangers have announced on their Twitter account Sunday morning. In 60 games this season, Nash has netted 18 goals to go along with 10 assists.

In the one-day games, India's bold gambit of picking two wrist spinners in Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal proved a master stroke. Either way, the bowling is a lost cause, and all depends on the batting for South Africa. With conditions favouring the pacers, it was imperative that India's pace battery utilise every ounce of swing available.

He further praised Indian skipper Virat Kohli and said he has faith in his players.

Kohli's response was that sub-standard pitches helped his bowlers as much as they helped the South Africans.

Kohli has scored 1,983 runs in 57 T20Is at an average of 50.85. If there are three bad balls in one over you will go for runs and your whole analysis suffers. Rohit Sharma managed a single impressive innings, a century in the fifth one-day worldwide after Kohli was out for 36, his lowest score of the series.

Duminy's departure brought in the debutant Jonker, who was unfazed by India's bowling attack, which has troubled the Proteas during the ODI and T20 series. He is among only five batsmen who have crossed 900 points in both formats of the game. The test series loss would be a little disappointed for team India but then ever since the third test, India has dominated with authority. He is also the fourth wicket-keeper to effect 400-plus dismissals in ODIs and the first Indian to achieve the feat.
