England and India are playing out a five series after wrapping up ODI and T20. Only the Day:2 of the 1st test is completed and it’s Virat Kohli who has completed dominated the match. On the day:1 Kohli headlined celebration to Joe Root’s dismissal. On Day:2, his brilliant knock in a difficult situation where he scored 149. Where ever he goes, he makes headlines.
After wrapping up England’s Inning on 287, India got a good start and were 49-0 and soon after India was struggling for 100-5. England looked like to take some decent lead from the situation. But Kohli combined brilliantly with the tail-enders and the last five wickets partnership produced 174 runs in which Kohli was a major contributor, not to mention of course.
When India visited England in 2014, Kohli only managed to score 139 in 10 innings and the serious question was raised on his batting techniques that time. But, today he scored 149 and in just one inning he wiped out all the issue which were raising on him and relating 2014.
After reaching 100, Virat Kohli kisses his wedding ring in celebration of scoring a ton and dedicated to Anushka Sharma. There was no mic drop celebration today as he reached under his shirt and kissed the ring he had attached to a chain. Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma was in the stands at Edgbaston.

There are three types of people in this world:
