The classy Kohli showed his strength of character to hang in there on a surface which provided a major examination, with extreme movement off the seam and swing to go with indifferent bounce.

Kohli struck six boundaries in a patient 41, falling in the afternoon session when Kagiso Rabada cleaned him up with an unplayable delivery.

India were 134-5 when Kohli departed, leading by 127 in Johannesburg.
