The newlywed Indian skipper Virat Kohli gave a remarkable gesture by kissing his wedding ring after reaching the score of 150 in the second Test match against the mighty South Africa.
India went all out on 307 chasing the 335 posted by Proteas in the first innings. South Africa lead by 28 runs going into the second innings.
Here’s the video:
Kohli denied the opposition of a bigger lead and stayed on the crease while the top order collapsed cheaply. He was supported by R Ashwin who scored 38.
India, who had resumed on 183 for five in reply to South Africa s first innings of 335, lost Hardik Pandya for 15 in the over after Kohli reached his milestone when he was run out by a direct hit from Vernon Philander at mid-on.
He was over the line but failed to ground his foot or his bat before the stumps were hit.
Kohli was largely untroubled on an easy-paced pitch but Ashwin had to survive some hostile short-pitched bowling from Rabada before he went on the counter-attack, hitting seven fours in a 54-ball innings.
