Looking at the venues, Morkel reckons Kohli will be able to get a century in the upcoming ODI series. Morkel said during an interaction on the Star Sports show Game Plan: “Virat Kohli will definitely score a hundred. It’s definitely two venues that he will enjoy to bat on. Cape Town is one of them and he has said in many interviews that he loves playing at Newlands. I can’t see him playing three ODIs and not scoring a hundred.”

Morkel also picked the KL Rahul-led side as favorites going into the three-match series. He added: “I do feel that India is the more settled team. I do believe playing at Paarl will give them a slight advantage, especially in the first two games. So I am going for a 2-1 result for India.”
Earlier, Kohli pointed fingers at Ganguly when he was sacked as the ODI skipper of the side just ahead of the South Africa tour. Rohit Sharma was made the new white-ball captain.
Overall, Kohli ended his tenure with fourth-most wins as Test captain – 40 wins and 11 draws in 68 matches.
Kohli would now feature in the white-ball leg of the South Africa tour as a player and not captain for the first time in seven years.
