Indian captain Virat Kohli is the highest runs aggregator scored by a batsman in a bilateral ODI series, passing his team-mate Rohit Sharma’s 491 against Australia in 2013.
Kohli was in dazzling form as he hit 129 not out off 96 balls to take India to an eight-wicket win with 17.5 overs to spare in the sixth one-day international against host South Africa.
It completed a crushing 5-1 series victory for India, who started the series second behind South Africa in the one-day rankings but finished as the undisputed number one side.
Kohli hit three centuries and became the first player to score more than 500 runs in a bilateral series. He finished with 558 runs at an average of 186.00.
