Virat Kohli scored 150 against South Africa in the 2nd Test at Centurion and then kissed his wedding ring. Kohli scored 153 before becoming the last batsman to get out. India has given a lead of 28 runs to South Africa. But it was because of Virat Kohli’s breathtaking knock that India are back in a fighting position in the 2nd Test. India already lost the Newlands Test and hence South Africa is leading the series by 0-1. That made Virat Kohli’s contribution even more special as he played a substantial innings to lead from the front.
Last month, Virat Kohli tied the knot with Bollywood starlet Anushka Sharma in Tuscany, Italy. The high-profile wedding was kept hush-hush as only the close and dear ones were invited to attend the event.
So here is what happened:
Virat Kohli took off his helmet after bringing up his 150 and then he carefully took the wedding ring out which hung from a chain around his neck. He took it out and kissed it. Virat Kohli is not someone who is shy as he was vocal about being in a relationship with Anushka and also came out in her support when she faced the backlash for Virat Kohli’s underperformance.

In Virat Kohli ‘s first 11 test hundred’s, 2 scores of 150 + ,next 10 hundred’s, all converted to 150 + .The thing about big players, when they score, they make it count.
Important now for the bowlers to bowl with discipline. #SAvIND
