On a pitch where none of the batsmen from either side found it easy to play their strokes and in a series where no player had scored a century, India skipper Virat Kohli proved his class with a sublime century in the first innings of ongoing second Test against South Africa in Centurion.

The 29-year old had arrived in South Africa on the back of a stunning series against Sri Lanka, scoring a century and two consecutive double centuries but had failed to deliver in the first Test at Newlands, scoring just 5 and 28. However, the right-handed batsman did not waste much time in showing that the failure in the first Test was a mere fluke as he roared back to form when his team needed him the most.

Kohli had joined Murali Vijay at the crease on day two when India were in a spot of bother after losing two wickets off two balls with the scoreboard reading just 28. And while wickets kept on falling at regular intervals from one end, Kohli held firm to lead India’s reply to South Africa’s first innings total of 335. The India batting mainstay finished the day on 85 and as India reached 183 for five at stumps.

Kohli started day three in the same manner and completed his 21st century in the 67th over after taking a double off Lungi Ngidi’s first ball. The celebration after that told the whole story as the ever-energetic Kohli let his emotions out.
