Captain Virat Kohli celebrates his century on day 3 of the second Test against S A


(G.N.S) Dt. 16
After an early jolt, South Africa builds on a narrow lead on a rain-affected third day, Virat Kohli’s innings was as much about heart as ability. As much about flair as substance. Timing is the essence for Kohli. He not only meets the ball from the sweet portion of his willow but times his performances when his team needs him most.
Kohli’s 153 in an adverse situation saw him fighting the fires that threatened to consume the innings. His was an innings of character and resilience. India got to 307, just 28 runs behind South Africa’s first innings effort on the third day of the second Test at SuperSport Park. Then, the host, after being jolted early by a fiery Jasprit Bumrah, was 90 for two in its second innings when bad light, after a spell of rain, ended play early. A.B. de Villiers (50), stroking with a lightness of feet and deft touch, and a battling Dean Elgar (36) were at stumps.
