Virat's timely century at Centurion

17, Jan 2018 By shakeel ahmad

Virat Kohli tried intensely to rise above his poor returns in the Cape Town Test by his century in the second test. He rejuvenated his staggering team by his impressive play. He played with complete accountability.

He fought with odd form and proved his effective play. He felt the necessity of staying on the crease and aimed at amassing runs and runs slowly and carefully.

Speeding up runs to shorten the difference in the score raised by the South African cricket players he took the pressure and reached a striking total of 153 runs. He continued to engage himself in a bid to secure the quick runs on every vacant side of the ground.

He appeared to have exciting with the bodily rejuvenation. Relaxed and correct on the crease the Indian team captain proved his stillness and firmness on the ongoing second test match against the Protease at Centurion.

He gave a life to the staggering team by his twenty-first century in his 65 test match career. He had played an inning of 119 runs in Johannesburg in the month of December of the year 2013. MS Dhoni was the team’s captain. He is now the second cricketer in completing two centuries in the test matches on the South African ground.

Tendulkar has five centuries in his name. He scored as many as 169 runs during the Cape Town tour in 1996-97.

This remarkable feat marked his striking return to the cricket after his much-publicised marriage and successive parties.

He also focussed on the effectiveness of having the power to continue enjoying hitting balls with dependability. There was a display of his strong will across his palm and the days will not be far when he will surpass Mohd Azharuddin’s record of 22 centuries in the test cricket one day.
