Kohli talks to Shaun Pollock in three different capacities — as the Man of the Match, Man of the Series and as the Indian captain.

MoM — It was a day where I felt really good. Today from the word 'go' I was feeling really good out there. Beautiful place to bat under lights. They had to try something, and I like setting up for the short ball as well. it was actually a blessing in disguise getting so many short balls. The surface played really well under lights. At day it was slightly slow. At night time it came on to the bat nicely. 

MoS — It's been a roller-coaster tour till now. A lot is done off the field. A lot of people off the field contributed. My wife deserves a lot of credit for this. She's one person who gets a lot of criticism all the time, but she's kept me motivated all along. Winning the series 5-1, it's a wonderful feeling. I got 8-9 years left in my career, and I want to make the most of it. If im taking it for granted, then I'm not giving justice to the gift from God. 

On Indian team — They've shown a lot of character. The bowling unit. Shikhar at the top, Jinx today, Rohit in the last game. There's still a T20I series to go. The first two tests, we were not happy with ourselves. We wanted to take the game to the opposition but we couldn't. When we lost the series here, I was speaking to you, and here after winning the series, I'm speaking to you again, and it's a wonderful feeling.

Aiden Markram, South Africa captain: Quite a tough series. Something we have to look back at. Try find the reasoning of why we haven't been as good as we should be. If you look at them, their players have cashed in. That's how you learn as a young captain. If there's a time to learn, now would be it.

Virat Kohli is the 'Man of the Match' as well as the 'Man of the Series'!

This is an immense win for India and their captain has been the key architect. It's a humbling experience overall for South Africa and their misery might not yet be over with the T20 series ahead now. And what more can one say about Virat... effortless, immaculate, classy... he looks in a permanent purple patch. Who would ever want to be a bowler in the world of Virat Kohli?

India vs South Africa, 6th ODI at Centurion, latest update: The 33rd over, bowled by Tahir, lasts just one delivery, as Kohli smacks the ball down the ground to complete a remarkable 5-1 series victory for the 'Men in Blue'! Keep in mind the fact that this is India's first-ever series win on South African soil, and few would have imagined them dominating the proceedings in such a lop-sided manner!

Preview: Following a historic series victory on South African soil, India will aim to continue their dominance to finish with a 5-1 record against the Proteas in the sixth One-Day International (ODI) at the SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday.

The visitors who have already pocketed the series 4-1 will be in a search to finish off the series on a positive note. India, courtesy of their triumphant run, also clinched the top spot in ODI rankings for the third time in six months.

A depleted South Africa, who were forced to re-work on their team throughout the series, will however aim to salvage some pride from the final encounter.

The formidable Indian side will look to continue playing in a ruthless manner led by their flamboyant skipper Virat Kohli — who has been in solid touch throughout the series.

Openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma along side Hardik Pandya and Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the middle-order will only add depth to the hosts batting line-up.

Meanwhile, batsman Ajinkya Rahane who has failed to get big scores in the series will look to get amongst the runs. Kohli might also fancy playing his bench-strength in the dead rubber consisting of handy batsmen Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav.

The bowling department for the visitors will continue to be spearheaded by pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.

However, the wrist spinning duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal who have been nearly unplayable for the South African side throughout the series will again look to be the key wicket takers for India.

South Africa will look to come out in all-out attack fashion with nothing to lose. Batsmen Hashim Amla, Jean-Paul Duminy, AB de Villiers and David Miller will be the key in the batting department.

While the bowling will largely depend on pacers Kagiso Rabada and Lungisani Ngidi who will be vital to pick up crucial scalps at regular intervals to keep India on the back foot.

Squads:

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur.

South Africa: Aiden Markram (captain), Hashim Amla, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Jean-Paul Duminy, AB de Villiers, Imran Tahir, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Chris Morris, Lungisani Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Khayelihle Zondo, Farhaan Behardien.
