Good news for R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja from India's bowling coach

And the domination hasn't just been on the field, as commentators Shaun Pollock and Michael Holding appeared to become victims of Hindi imposition. But in truth they have been excellent with their variations, outfoxing experienced limited-overs batsmen like Duminy and David Miller, and they have been well marshalled by both Kohli and Dhoni.

The left-hander accepted that South Africa batsmen are finding it extremely hard to pick Chahal and Kuldeep.

At this rate, the day is not far away when they start belting out affectionate phrases describing one's mothers and sisters which are now the preserve of maestro Virat Kohli.

While many believe that the future of India's off-spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in worldwide limited overs cricket is bleak, bowling coach Bharat Arun gave hopes to the "spin twins" stating that they are "not out of the race" despite wrist spinners like Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav calling the shots at the moment. But there is no problem in that because you know that if they bowl attacking lines, then they will end up picking two-three wickets every game. South Africans haven't played wrist spinners much, so they have found it hard. "There is always a first time and we hope this is it", said Arun. Chahal's five-wicket haul in the Centurion one-dayer was a case in point.

The hosts lost the third ODI by 124 runs to surrender an unassailable 3-0 lead in the six-match series. It was a clinical batting performance by Kohli and Dhawan followed by the charm of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. While Duminy gave credit to Chahal and Yadav for assessing conditions quicker than South Africa and finding a slower bowling speed that has worked on the pitches, he added: "We have game plans and they've bowled well enough not to give us balls to play in our game plan".

How Boston Herald reporter was allegedly tricked into Tom Brady contract story
Sports Boston's Tom Curran called the report " off the reservation " and it appears his initial assessment was spot on. And some of those texts made their way into Borges' column before it was taken off the Herald's website.

"It's outstanding to see two guys just totally spinning a web around the opposition", Kohli said. There doesn't seem to be a way out at all.

Kohli said the duo has been courageous in going after wickets even at the risk of conceding a few runs.

"I don't have words to explain this". They've bowled well enough not to let us play according to our game plan. "They are very courageous tossing the ball and asking the batsman to come out and play a risky shot". "We haven't been playing them well; we've been a bit tentative towards them". "Wrist spinners will extract turn even on flat tracks".

"They might go for six an over, we knew that but they will pick up 3-4 wickets between them". The India skipper went on to score centuries in both games. But Chahal and Kuldeep have remarkably turned things around for the Men in Blue under the able guidance of Kohli and imperative inputs of MS Dhoni from behind the wickets.

Whether Chahal and Kuldeep have also ended the senior players' ODI careers entirely, of course, only time will tell.

Another Government Shutdown Over DACA "Unlikely", Says Senator Sherrod Brown

"When you are not picking their wrong 'uns, you are not necessarily comfortable. I am glad that it paid off and I am looking forward to seeing them perform consistently against the best sides", Prasad said in an interview to the magazine Sportstar.

During the past seven months, Chahal and Kuldeep have shown a hunger for wickets and a fearlessness to flight the ball - both qualities usually associated with youth - and the results are there for all to see. "They've outplayed us in all departments", he added.

"He's (Kohli) up there with the world's best".

Today the stalwart batsman got his 34th One Day International Hundred from just his 205th game. Since then the duo have gone on to play 17 matches each and coincidentally they have also picked up 32 wickets apiece.
