It is a hard exercise to overemphasize the quality of the Indian cricketer Virat Kohli who continues to surprise the cricketing world with his immaculate ability and consistency. To provide another evidence of his ever swelling legacy, the skipper of the men in blue smashed his 69th International century.
With a spectacular knock against South Africa in the ongoing second Test match at Pune, the 30-year tried to close the breathing space for the tourists. This was Virat’s 26th century in Test cricket and overall 7th double hundred which is most by a captain. The 30-year old feasted on both pacers and spinners as he displayed an effective range of strokes to aid India continue their impressive journey in the ICC World Test Championship.
Moreover, the Delhi born went past legendary Sachin Tendulkar in terms of batting average in Test cricket. Kohli embellished his career-best Test innings of 254 runs with 33 fours and 2 sixes. With India sitting in the driving seat of the game, South Africa would need to produce a magical performance to come back hard and save the series.
