Virat Kohli on Thursday became the thirdcricket player in Test match history to score a century on his debut as captain.
Kohli notched up his seventh century in his 30th Test. At the time of the filing of this report, he was batting on 107 of 164 balls with twelve hits to the fence. Kohli’s ton has helped India give a strong reply to Australia’s first innings total of 518 for seven. India were sitting pretty on 346 for the loss of four wickets off 87 overs, but are still trailing Australia by 171 runs.
Keeping him company at the crease was Rohit Sharma who scored 19 of 37 deliveries.
