Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli scored a gritty hundred on the third day of the second Test against South Africa at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Monday. Kohli’s top knock of 153 off 217 balls ensured India conceded a lead of only 28 runs in the first innings and can push for a series levelling win with two days of play remaining. (IND v SA 2nd Test Day 4 updates | Scorecard)

Walking out to bat in the ninth over with India reeling at 28/2, Kohli single-handedly kept India in the game and was the last batsman to be dismissed in the 93rd over.
