India’s Test captain Virat Kohli’s wait for reaching his 71st international century extended when he was dismissed 21 runs short of the three-figure mark on Day 1 of the Cape Town Test.

Virat Kohli scored 79 runs from 201 in an innings laced with 12 fours and a six. He brought up his fifth off 158 balls – his second slowest in Test cricket – as he restrained himself from chasing the deliveries outside off-stump after succumbing twice in the first Test.

Kohli remained patient and left about half of the deliveries he faced in his high-class knock. He did, however, unfurled the cover drive, but only when the ball was full and when he was clear in his mind about the shot.

However, the Indian captain failed to convert this superlative innings into what would have been his 71st century, one which has eluded him for more than two years.

As Virat Kohli missed his hundred, the netizens brought up one of Jofra Archer’s tweets, which was dated back to 2013 that fit aptly in this situation.

Over the past three years, there eerie nature of Jofra Archer’s Twitter account has left fans befuddled. The England pacer used to tweet a lot when he was younger. It has turned out that he has made a tweet for ever occasion happening in the future.

Speaking more about Kohli’s elite knock, it was observed that he made slight adjustments in his trigger compared to previously. Also, the broadcasters highlighted that in Cape Town how his front foot was moving downwards and the toe pointed towards mid-off while playing the cover drive while in the first Test in Centurion that front toe was pointing towards cover while playing his go-to shot.

Virat Kohli had shown patient of historical proportions and it was arguably his best half-century knock. That helped India reach 223, which could be considered a par total on the surface that is expected to only get difficult for batting as the Test match progresses.
