Virat Kohli Lights up Day 4 With Long-awaited Century

He and his fans waited 40 months for this moment. 1205 days to be precise. It was in November 2019 that Virat Kohli scored a century in Kolkata. And that gave way to a century drought which in Tests which ended in Ahmedabad today when Kohli scored a masterful hundred – his 28th in the format and 75th overall. On a pitch where batters had fun, Axar Patel too showed his prowess, hitting a strokeful 79 but fell as he was looking to score at a quick pace. Kohli scored 186 and was the last man to be dismissed as Indian innings came to an end on 571 with an overall lead of 91. Shreyas Iyer didn’t bat as he went for scan in the morning after complaining of pain in his lower back. Australia came out to bat late in the third session. Surprisingly, they opened with nightwatchman Matthew Kuhnemann alongside specialist opener Travis Head. The pair saw through the six overs safely. Unless something dramatic happens tomorrow, this Test is destined for a draw.

Matthew Kuhnemann going for the line down the leg-side. The first time, Axar Patel went for a pull but missed it and the second time he left it alone.

HALF-CENTURY for Axar Patel! A memorable series he’s having. This is his third fifty of the Border Gavaskar Trophy. Gets to the milestone with a single, in front of his home crowd. India 517/5 in 167.1 overs, lead by 37 runs.

runs as well. Meanwhile, India took the lead with the pair of Kohli and Axar stitching a big partnership. Kohli brought up his 28th Test century off the 241st delivery and thus ended his wait which was just over three years long. Srikar Bharat fell on 44 right after taking on the short ball ploy of Cameron Green as he belted the pacer for two sixes and a four in successive deliveries in the second session. The morning session was a shared one with India scoring 73/1 in 32 overs to move closer to Australia’s first innings total of 480-all out. Kohli was solid as ever and was unbeaten on 88 when the lunch break was taken while Bharat offered a good company having made 25 off 70. India started the day on a solid note with the overnight pair of Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja bringing up their fifty-run partnership and then taking the score past the 300-run mark. However, Todd Murphy then struck with Jadeja holing out on 28.

Day 3 Review

By scoring his first fifty in more than a year, Kohli joined an elite list that includes Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Virender Sehwag to score 4000 or more runs at home. Kohli reached the mark of 4000 runs in his 50th Test at home.

While Jadeja, who has already played a couple of crucial knocks in this series, has to score runs at a quicker rate on Day 4 to give India enough time to make something out of the match. With Shreyas Iyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, KS Bharat and Axar Patel yet to come, India have enough depth in their batting line-up.

“It’s more of a patient game. When the pitch is like Indore… I felt like I bowled better today than what I did in Indore. And it’s just coming down to doing your basics well enough for long enough,” Lyon said.

For him, Tests like these are decided in the last half an hour and right now it is on even keel.

“Where are we in the game? I think it’s pretty even to be honest with you, we know in this part of the world, games can speed up quite quickly, so it’s about being patient for long periods of time and not chasing the game,” the veteran off-spinner said.
