[dropcap]V[/dropcap]irat Kohli braved all odds to score a brilliant century on day three of the second Test at the Optus Stadium in Perth on Sunday. The Indian skipper brought up his 25th Test century in 214 balls, his seventh against Australia and sixth Down Under. Only Australian legend Don Bradman (68) had taken fewer innings to score 25 Test hundreds.
Kohli, batting on 82 at stumps on Saturday, completed his hundred with a beautiful looking push down the track. It has been important innings as Kohli came to bat with India reeling at 8 for 2. Kohli has stitched three important partnerships since then adding 74 runs with Pujara, 91 with Rahane and 50 with Vihari.
With this innings, Kohli also completed 1000 runs outside Asia in 2018. He also went past Sachin Tendulkar for the highest Test average in SENA (South Afric, England, New Zealand and Australia) countries.
