With a captain’s knock at Centurion, Virat Kohli has smashed some records yet again. Having hit his 21st century Virat Kohli has defeated Sachin Tendulkar in yet another record. Virat Kohli has gone past Sachin Tendulkar on the list of being the fastest to 21 test centuries.
While Virat Kohli got to 21 Test Hundreds in 109 innings, the master blaster took 110 innings to reach this big milestone.
Virat Kohli also became the second Indian captain to score a test hundred in South Africa. The first Indian captain to do so was Sachin Tendulkar. Virat Kohli is smashing batting records one after the other.
At one point we would have thought that Sachin’s records were invincible but Virat Kohli is making us rethink the same. He’s slowly stealing Sachin’s thunder and frankly we’re only glad to see that happening.
KOHLI STABILISED INDIA
While all other Indian batsmen failed to score, Virat Kohli smashed a hefty hundred and played a captain’s knock of 153. He was just flawless on his way to his 21st Test century. If it was not for Kohli’s heroics then India would have never been able to score 307 in response to South Africa’s 335.
Murali Vijay and Ravi Chandran Ashwin made vital contributions. While Murali Vijay played a knock of 46, Ashwin chipped in with a cameo of 38. Virat Kohli gave India a fair chance to win the match.
He was slammed for his poor show at Cape Town and also for dropping Bhuvi from the playing XI. But he responded to his critics with a brilliant hundred that shut the mouth of all critics. India were all out for 307 and Virat Kohli has scored almost half of them.
