Team India skipper Virat Kohli marked another record as the hosts outclassed Windies by 9 wickets in the fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) in Trivandrum to bag the five-match series 3-1 on Thursday.
Virat claimed his seventh Man of the Series award in ODIs to equal the record held by Sourav Ganguly and Yuvraj Singh on the elite list which is topped by the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. With a staggering 453 runs in five matches, Kohli finished the series as the highest-run getter and was awarded the Man of the Series for his stellar performances.
Kohli now has a total of seven Man of the Series awards in his career and stands on par with the likes of Yuvraj, Ganguly, Viv Richards, Ricky Ponting and Hashim Amla. Only Tendulkar, Sanath Jayasuriya and Shaun Pollock are ahead of Kohli with 15, 11 and 9 Man of the Series awards respectively.
