Virat Kohli is back at what he does best, score centuries!

Virat Kohli smashed his way to his 21st Test century against South Africa at Centurion on Day 3 of the 2nd Test. This also happens to be Kohli’s first century in 2018. Kohli was unbeaten on 85 overnight with his side chasing the Proteas’ first innings score of 335. Kohli added the remaining 15 runs within the first one hour of Day 3. He was batting with Hardik Pandya and the two looked comfortable and settled in the middle but Pandya got run out. He was dismissed for 15 runs. He made his ground but had not put his bat over the crease and that is what led to his downfall.
