Indian Captain Virat Kohli scored a scintillating knock of 149 to bring team India right back into the contest.

After dismissing England for 287, India set out to bat on day 2 hoping to take a lead. The openers got off to a good start putting up a 50 run partnership. This was soon followed by 3 quick wickets from the quickie Sam Curran.

Following this Carnage, Virat Kohli came out with his team in a spot of bother. Stitching up important partnerships with Hardik Pandya and later on with the tail enders, Virat got to his 22nd century in style.

He then went on to score 149 before getting out to Adil Rashid. His knock comprised of 22 fours and a six. Virat’s knock turned out to be a crucial one as India who were ion the verge of conceding a huge lead to their opponent’s just had to concede 13 in the end.

Personally for himself this turned out to be an important knock. The celebration following the hundred showed Virat how much this hundred meant to him. He had managed to score 15 runs more than the total runs he accumulated in the 2014 series vs England.

Here is how Twitter reacted to acknowledge this magnificent innings:
