Kohli limps off, but India best SA
Virat Kohli limped off the field before India completed another dominant performance over South Africa in the first T20I at the Wanderers Stadium on Sunday.
Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were mainly responsible for India's 28-run win, two days after the tourists completed a 5-1 thrashing in a ODI series.
India captain Kohli left the field 13 overs into South Africa's innings after suffering a left leg strain while batting.
"I tweaked my glute a little bit. Thankfully it's not my hamstring," he said. "I felt a little more stiffness so I decided to go off and not be stupid and tear a muscle."
Dhawan made 72 in an Indian total of 203 for five after they were sent in to bat.
Then opening bowler Kumar produced a masterly display as he claimed career-best figures of five for 24 as South Africa were restricted to 175 for nine.
