Virat Kohli has been the best performer for the Indian cricket team in the ongoing Test series against England and he is showing no signs of slowing down.

With 440 runs in six innings at an average of 73.33, Kohli has enjoyed a brilliant run of form in the series and former England skipper Michael Vaughan believes that the swashbuckling right-hander can score another century in the fourth Test match in Southampton.

When asked on Twitter about the likelihood of another Kohli hundred in the fourth Test at The Rose Bowl in Southampton, Vaughan simply replied -- “highly likely”.

At the start of the series, a lot was written about Kohli’s disastrous form in England. However, the Indian cricket team skipper has proven everyone wrong with his impressive performances.

Kohli’s 200 runs at Trent Bridge -- the second time in the series he had compiled a double century of runs in the match, following his defiant effort in a losing cause at Edgbaston -- was exactly what India needed after going 2-0 down in the series and at Southampton, they will be looking to become the one team in the history of Test cricket has won a five-match series on foreign soil from 2-0 down.
