Ind vs SA: After cutting the cake, Jadeja offered it to Kohli, who seemed to shy away and it looked hilarious.
Kolkata: After the massive 243-run win over South Africa at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday, there were massive dressing-room celebrations that followed. And at the centre of it all were Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja, the stars of the show. There were two cakes, one was cut by Jadeja, while the other by Kohli. After cutting the cake, Jadeja offered it to Kohli, who seemed to shy away and it looked hilarious. Kohli scored 101*, while Jadeja was the star with the ball picking up five wickets. Here is the video that is now going viral on social space.

From outside, Virat Kohli’s record equalling 101 off 121 balls against South Africa on Sunday might look a bit laborious, but Indian captain Rohit Sharma termed the innings as one that suited the conditions and the match situation.
Kohli’s 49th ODI hundred paved the way for India’s 326 for five on a slightly diffident Eden Gardens pitch, which proved way over the par in the end.
“If you look at how we have played in the last three games, we have adapted better. Today, we needed Kohli to go out there and play to the situation. We then knew we had to keep it in the right areas (with the ball) and let the pitch do the rest,” said Rohit during the post-match presentation.
The Indian team will now take on Netherlands on November 12. The Rohit Sharma-led side has already made it to the semi-final and are at the top of the points table.
