India captain Virat Kohli is undoubtedly a team-man and is always available whenever a crisis hits the team. The 29-year-old has had a terrific time in South Africa, both as a player and as a captain. Following his team's loss in the Test series, Kohli led India's fightback and helped them to clinch the six-match ODI series 5-1 and the three-match T20I series 2-1. However, Kohli got sidelined for the last T20I due to a stiff back with Rohit Sharma leading the team in his absence. But that didn't deter Kohli to come to the rescue of his team-mates in a situation of need. 

Kohli was seen giving a head massage to opener Shikhar Dhawan during the final T20I at Newlands, Cape Town, which India won by 7 runs.

Kohli and Dhawan's bonhomie on and off the pitch is well documented. Both the players come from Delhi and share a great family relationship. 

Besides their off-field chemistry, Kohli and Dhawan also shared some great partnerships on the field, especially during the South Africa tour. Kohli and Dhawan were involved in a 158-run stand for the second wicket during the 4th ODI, equaling Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid's record. 

This was the eighth time when Kohli and Dhawan were involved in a 100-run stand for the second wicket.

Kohli finished the tour as the highest run-getter in Test and ODI series, scoring 286 and 558 runs, respectively. Kohli hammered a century and a fifty in the Test series. He was more lethal in the ODI series, hitting three hundreds and a fifty. Dhawan was the second-highest run-scorer in the ODI series with a tally of 323 runs. 

Dhawan, meanwhile, finished the T20I series as the highest run-scorer with a total of 143 runs.
