While Virat Kohli failed to breach the three-figure mark this time again, keeping his fans awaiting for 71st International century for now more than two years, he has had a good day out in Centurion for the side. In the ongoing opening Test match against South Africa, he hasn’t looked quite bad whenever he has come out to bat. Similarly, Team India is currently has played their A game and are on top with just 1 day of play left.
After batting first, India had 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. India were batting again in the final few overs of Day 3 but were bowled out on Day 4 scoring 174. India currently needs six wickets to win while South Africa needs 211 runs on the final day of play.
On Day 4 of the ongoing 1st Test match, what caught everyone’s attention was Virat Kohli’s game plan when the side came to bowl in the fourth innings. With South Africa opener Dean Elgar looking strong in the middle, a cracked had opened on the surface at the SuperSport Park.
While everyone noticed that, Kohli did not shy away in telling experienced Jasprit Bumrah to exploit this.
“Jassi idhar se daal, out karenge isko,” Kohli was heard telling Bumrah on the stump mic.
