India captain MS Dhoni has said that Virat Kohli is an outstanding player. Kohli scored a century off 61 deliveries and remained unbeaten on 115 off 66 deliveries to guide India home by six wickets. A week ago he became the fastest Indian to record a One-Day International (ODI) century. Kohli achieved this feat in 52 deliveries.

Kohli became only the first batsman in the history of ODI cricket to score five consecutive scores of 50-plus twice. He has been in red-hot form and hopes to carry this purple patch in the next game at Bangalore.
