He came, He saw, He conquered….

If we look at the names that stood out in the sporting world last week, it would be hard to look past Virat Kohli. The stylish Indian batsman, named captain for India's tour of Zimbabwe, ensured that the man he is temporarily filling in for, MS Dhoni has hardly been missed. And that's no ordinary achievement.

Despite resting several first team players, India were overwhelming favourites heading into this series and have easily lived up to that tag.

But it would be unfair to deny Kohli due credit for the manner in which he has steered the side to a series win with two games to spare. His biggest challenge was to ensure complacency didn't settle in the squad after the recent victories in the UK and the Caribbean. In this regard, he led by example. His ninth ton in a run chase helped India to victory in the first ODI and he followed that with an unbeaten 68 in the third match which was again pivotal in sealing the game and series.
