This is India’s biggest win against South Africa in South Africa in terms of runs. 
Man of the match Kohli hit a majestic unbeaten 160. He was helped by Shikhar Dhawan (76) to set the target of 303 for 6. 

  Duo again outperformed 

The star performers of the last match, wrist-spinners again spelled the doom for the hosts as the pair of Kuldeep Yadav (4/23) and Yuzvendra Chahal (4/46) shared eight wickets to bowl out South Africa for 179.

South Africa chase started on the wrong foot with Jasprit Bumrah trapping opener Hashim Amla with his first delivery of the innings in the second over. And after that spinners took over the host. 

   Kohli broke record

   Dhone created history

Former captain MS Dhoni scripts his name into the history books once again as Dhoni became the first Indian to successfully effect 400 One Day International dismissals. 
The 4th ODI will be played in New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg on February, 10.
