Virat Kohli, Man of the Match: Yeah it was quite special. We want to take the confidence from Jo'Burg to here. We wanted one good partnership. Very very happy for Jinks as well. It is easier to break down the total when you have a number on the board. I like to understand the game.. I had never scored an ODI hundred in South Africa. Thus, the celebration. It was my knee and my groin took the impact.The outfield for me was quite dangerous. I am ok now. Bhuvi and Bumrah again, we bank on them.The two wrist spinners have been making the difference for us.Having two wrist spinners I mentioned in the press conference is a huge advantage.
Faf du Plessis: Went upstairs to get my finger checked. One day cricket, the intensity is a lot higher. We did not bat well enough. We were at least 50-60 short. The conditions were a little slower in the first innings. India with a strong batting line up batted really well. I tried everything. Field placements, different tactics but Virat and Rahane played really well.
India won by 6 wickets and lead the series with 1-0
