King Kohli reigned supreme on day three, as the Indian skipper made one of his more important centuries against South Africa at Centurion.
The Indian skipper started the day on 85, as Kohli knew that this was a crucial day for India in the test series. Pandya and Kohli needed to build a big partnership, as they looked to get as close as possible to the South African total.
The Delhi batsman was positive, as Kohli creamed a couple of gorgeous cover drives. While all others failed around him, Kohli looked like he was batting on another surface all together, as the Indian skipper looked a cut above the rest of the batsmen.
He nudged the ball to the leg side, and took the single that took him to his 21st test century. Kohli celebrated in typical style, as he jumped and punched the air in delight as he signaled to his dressing room.
Here us how Twitter reacted to Kohli’s 21st test century!
