Virat Kohli stood as the lone warrior amidst the collapse of the Indian batting against South Africa in the second Test at Centurion.
While the Indian batting collapsed to some fine bowling from South Africa, Kohli kept going on and hit his 21st Test ton. Kohli was the last man out in the Indian innings, as it folded for 307 runs, giving South Africa a lead of 28 runs.
Virat Kohli 153 (217b 15x4 0x6) was in amazing form, as he overcame his weakness outside off stump to play shots all around the ground and negate the threat of the Proteas bowling. Kohli added 79 runs with M Vijay for the 3rd wicket and 71 runs with R Ashwin for the 7th wicket; as India pressed on towards the South African total.
When Virat Kohli reached his 150, he celebrated by kissing his engagement ring, which he wears around his neck on a chain. Virat got married to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma in December last year and the couple spent the New Year’s in South Africa, as Anushka was present for the first Test in Cape Town.
Here is the moment when Virat Kohli reached 150 and celebrates it with this gesture:
