The world is running out of superlatives to describe Virat Kohli and his batting. The Indian skipper scored his 34th ODI century to take India to a total of 303/6 in the first innings at Cape Town.
Kohli’s 160* off 159 balls is now the highest score by an Indian in South Africa; the previous best being Sachin Tendulkar’s 152 against Namibia in 2003. Here are the most notable reactions from Twitter after Kohli’s stunning century. You can also watch Kohli’s innings below.

Well played @imVkohli One of the best ODI 100’s I have seen. Played with a lot of maturity and responsibility especially when the team was under pressure.
