It was the 3rd day of the India versus Southafrica test in Centurion, and overnight Virat Kohli the Indian captain was batting on 85* along with Hardik Pandya.
Virat had played alone rescuing act of some sorts for India as trailing Southafrica”s 335 in first innings India had lost 2 wickets for 28 when Virat came to the crease and got Vijay who scored 46 runs to partner him for a while before Vijay went and quickly Rohit went in a jiffy too. And suddenly Virat had to carry the Indian innings on his own, he did that very well with that 85* to give India a chance on a pitch where batting last is perceived as going to be treacherous, hence it was important to go as close to the South African score as possible.
Virat did that absolutely magnificently, but one eye-catching moment took everyone to take notice and perhaps fall in love with Kohli more. Once Virat reached his hundred, he jumped in the air to celebrate and once down he took the chain out of his shirt and kissed the ring attached to it which was his wedding ring.
Recently the Indian Captain married the famous Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, the couple has been very well received and appreciated by all corners. And so this was a very fond moment for everyone to see and cherish.
Often Anushka has been criticised when Kohli has been found short of runs and so it was apt by Virat to dedicate these runs and this hundred and to his beloved wife.

Kohli went on to go past 150 and took India just 28 short to South Africa”s score, Kohli scored almost half of India”s runs in this innings. Which will be remembered as one of his best knocks.
