Jacques Kallis wants Virat Kohli to work on his temperament

Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli

After the Pink ODI defeat in Johannesburg, Virat Kohli and his boys managed to lay their hands on the Momentum ODI series trophy after beating South Africa by 73 runs in the fifth ODI at the St George's Park in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday.

The visitors who have already pocketed the series 4-1 will be in a search to finish off the series on a positive note.

It was the first success for the team India in seven bilateral or multi-team series in South Africa. It is not the easiest place to play cricket, definitely not the easiest place to win a series.

"You take three of your best batsmen out of any team, they will struggle and when you do it against a very strong Indian team it has exposed us".

I think he's bowled very well to be really honest with you.

Whatever combination we use, be it six batters with two all-rounders, I don't think it is the fault of the combination.

Kohli said that the team management would also like to make a few changes in the playing XI on February 16 as they have already clinched the series. So, when it comes to other series and World Cup, we are better prepared for it. But when you are losing in this manner, whatever adjustment needs to be made, you focus on that. The coach has a long-term vision and a few ideas up his sleeve, this is the ideal opportunity to execute that.

However, the conditions notwithstanding, India's inability to surge from a position of absolute strength to eventually not touching the 300-run mark raised questions on the middle-order's inability to add to the top-order onslaught. After a dismal Test Tour and the first leg of the ODI Tour, Rohit Sharma would be looking forward to ending the series on a high.

"He has been aggressive and I think it works for his game". We've got better in the last three games. "The way we played from the first game, we have dominated the series, and the result is there for all to see", he added. "Aiden has shown all the hallmarks of someone who is going to be a good leader and with Faf out we thought we could give him the opportunity", said the Proteas coach. Unfortunately those of us who have batted in the top six haven't managed to get the big hundreds that must shape an innings.

Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers were also injured but the latter returned for the last three ODIs and the T20I series.

"It happened to me but he is still young at global cricket and this is a great opportunity for him to captain the senior national team".
