IND vs SA ODI: 3 Best Batsmen In The Indian Squad
The former Indian ODI and T20I skipper is among the best batsmen across formats in the modern game. He has scored over 13000 runs in Otis and has 43 hundreds and 62 fifties in the process. He scored a 79 in his very first innings of 2022 and by the looks of it, the elusive 44th ODI ton is not very far away. That will also be his 71st international century as well. Kohli may very well end up being among the top three run-getters in the series.
