Kohli smashes ton, match evenly poised

Virat Kohli

After losing some quick wickets early on, Indian skipper Virat Kohli made all possible efforts to stick at the crease and ended up smashing a brilliant century at the Centurion against South Africa in the second Test match.

Kohli remained unbeaten on 141 to take India to 287/8 at lunch on Day 3 of Centurion Test, cutting India’s deficit to 48.

R Ashwin continued his batting prowess, supporting his skipper in an incredible 71-run stand that gave India the momentum they needed on Day 3.

Ashwin was the attacker in that stand, playing some brazen strokes for a 54-ball 38 that included seven boundaries, three of which were consecutive off Kagiso Rabada. He endured a hard time initially, with Rabada and Morkel really bending their backs. But after a few edgy strokes, Ashwin overcame the threat of bounce and played on the up.
