Video: Virat Kohli’s match-winning century vs New Zealand!
With New Zealand about to tour India for a series of 3 tests and 5 ODI’s, the excitement is at its peak. After a dominating outing in the Caribbean, the Virat Kohli-led Indian outfit would be eager to begin their home season in some style. New Zealand’s overall test record in India hasn’t been too fascinating as they are yet to win even a single test here.
New Zealand’s last tour to India was way back in 2012, when they were hammered 2-0 in the 2 match series. That series saw the emergence of Virat Kohli in tests, as he had quite a fruitful outing against the Kiwis. In the second test at Bangalore, India were well under pressure in their first innings.
Trailing New Zealand’s score, the hosts lost a few early wickets and were put on the backfoot thanks to some disciplined bowling from the Kiwi pacers. In walked Virat Kohli, and the crowd erupted. Kohli needed to play a responsible innings to get India as close as possible to New Zealand’s score. What followed ahead was sheer magic, as the Delhi batsman went on to score the second test century of his career.
Kohli was simply magical as he played an array of delightful strokes against the likes of Tim Southee and Doug Bracewell. Kohli’s knock of 103 in the first innings turned out to be a match-winning one as the hosts got home in a close run chase.
Below, is the video of Kohli’s sensational century against New Zealand.
