Kohli wants just five Test venues

India wrapped up a resounding 3-0 series triumph over South Africa on Tuesday, taking the final two wickets they needed in the third contest to conclude victory by an innings and 202 runs.

All three matches against the Proteas took place at venues hosting Test cricket for just the second time in Visakhapatnam, Pune and Ranchi.

Kohli is all for mixing up venues in international cricket but feels the five-day format needs to played at regular stadiums.

India captain fastest to 10,000 ODI runs

India captain Kohli became the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 runs in ODIs as he scored a second consecutive century against the touring side earlier in the day at Visakhapatnam.

Following up on his 140 in the opening match in Guwahati, Kohli remained unbeaten on 157 for his 37th ODI hundred and took his side to 321-6 in their 50 overs, after the hosts won the toss and opted to bat.

"Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you," the couple said in a statement.

The Hindu ceremony was attended by close family and a few friends.

The couple said they wanted "their wedding to be a very private affair".

The two stars were said to have married at a resort in Tuscany.

They will host a reception in Delhi for relatives on 21 December, followed by a celebration in Mumbai on 26 December to be attended by Bollywood stars and cricketers, they said.

South Africa were looking solid at 140-2 at The Oval on Sunday before captain De Villiers was caught a yard out of his ground, with Miller exiting in the next over after a disastrous mix-up with Faf du Plessis.

India took the last eight South Africa wickets for 51 runs and a serene Kohli was unbeaten on 76 as his team cruised home with 12 overs to spare to set up a likely semi-final with neighbours Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Thursday.
