As far as cricket is concerned, captain Kohli was the star of the show as India completely dominated South Africa to win the second Test by an innings and 137 runs in Pune on Sunday.

In the process, India also clinched the three-Test series with a match to spare.

Moreover, it was India’s record 11th Test series victory on home soil, surpassing Australia’s ten on the trot.

The third and final Test of the series will begin in Ranchi on Saturday (October 19).
