Virat Kohli was once again the saviour of the Indian cricket team as he scored a brilliant century to pull his team out of a tight position on Day 2 of the first Test match against England at Edgbaston on Thursday.

It was a special knock for Kohli in more ways than one as it was his maiden century on English soil and after struggling to score runs in the 2014 series, it was a moment of redemption for the Indian cricket team skipper.

The 225-ball 149 earned Kohli praises from fans and experts alike with the Bharat Army – official Indian cricket team supporters group – coming up with a chant for the charismatic cricketer.

In a video posted by The Bharat Army, the fans can be heard chanting: “We’ve got Kohli, Virat Kohli, I just don’t think you understand, he’s MS Dhoni’s man, he smashes Pakistan, we’ve got Virat Kohli!”

Kohli braved the testing English conditions, smashing 22 boundaries on his way to the landmark, falling one run short of a 150. His celebration showed how much the knock meant to him as he kissed his wedding ring and blowed kisses to wife Anushka Sharma in the stands after reaching the milestone.

India’s last two wickets added 92 runs before Kohli was finally the last man out after he misjudged leg spinner Adil Rashid’s delivery and was caught by Stuart Broad at point.
