While Virat Kohli may not have breached the three-figures mark in international cricket for over two years, he hasn’t looked in that bad a nick whenever he has come out to bat. Even in the opening Test match against South Africa at the SuperSport Park in Centurion, Kohli looked good until he chased a wide delivery outside off that led to his dismissal on 35. While Kohli fans’ wait for Virat’s hundred was extended, they would not mind the situation India find themselves in after Day 3 of the first Test.
After batting first, India put on 327 in the first innings. Although at one stage they were 272/3 and looked well in course of posting over 400 with two set batters in the middle, a collapse saw them get bowled out for 327 inside the first session on Day 3. However, their bowlers helped them make a comeback in the game and India were batting again in the final few overs on the day which meant that the Men in Blue had bowled out South Africa in less than two sessions.
It was during their bowling innings that Kohli was seen enjoying himself to the music that was being played at the stadium. While there were no spectators amid concerns over the Coronavirus pandemic, Kohli did not mind grooving in between overs. Yet the fans managed to get hold of video footage of Kohli shaking a leg which is now going viral on the internet.

Meanwhile, former India opener Wasim Jaffer expressed his opinion on Kohli’s innings. He observed that Kohli tends to bat beautifully until he gets out. Jaffer termed it as something that happens to “great players.”
“Kohli was playing beautifully. But that has been the case with Virat for such a long time. He bats beautifully till he gets out and that is something that is disappointing. That happens to great players. There comes a time when they go through a bad patch. But it doesn’t look like a bad patch because he bats so beautifully till he gets out. He will feel like he missed an opportunity,” Jaffer said on ESPNCricinfo.
The India Test captain would now want to end the nation’s wait for his 71st international ton with him expected to bat on Day 4 with India already 146 runs ahead.
