India loses in Centurion as Virat Kohli smashes his thirty-first fifty.
In the Boxing Day Test in Centurion, South Africa crushed India by an innings and thirty-two runs.
After choosing to field, the Proteas scored 408 against India’s 245 points.
On Day 3, India lost 131 to 76, with Virat Kohli being the lone survivor. He attempted a counterattacking knock, but the opposing player offered him no assistance.
With his 30th Test fifty, Kohli smashed it.

An stunning 76 from Kohli
For India in the second innings, Kohli was unquestionably the lone warrior. Just two Indian batters have reached double digits, including him.
Despite having just one other batsman to help him, Kohli hammered an 82-ball 76 (12 fours and 1 six).
This was the Indian batter’s thirty-first Test fifty. In the first innings, Kohli scored a counterattacking 38 runs.

When India was put in to bat, they collapsed to 24/3 and SA handed them an innings defeat.
They were saved by Kohli and Shreyas Iyer, but to no effect. With KL Rahul’s ton, India reached 245 points. Rabada Kagiso claimed five wickets.
The SA was hit early as well, but David Bedingham and centurion Dean Elgar were able to steady the ship. They passed 400 thanks to Marco Jansen.
On Day 3, India lost for 131 in 34.1 overs.

India’s second-most Test runs versus South Africa
In Test matches against South Africa, Kohli now ranks second for India in terms of runs scored.
He overtook Virender Sehwag, who amassed 1,306 runs in the format from 15 Tests against the Proteas. Sehwag also used one of his two triple-tons against SA.
With almost 1,700 runs (1,741) against the Proteas in the format, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar is the only other Indian hitter with more runs than Kohli at this point.

After 11,000 FC runs, Kohli
In First-Class cricket, Kohli accelerated to 11,000 runs in the second innings.
In his 237th FC innings, the Indian hitter achieved this significant milestone. It was at the Ranji Trophy in 2006 that he made his format debut.
In the ultimate format, Kohli has amassed around 8,700 runs (internationals). Thirty-eight half-centuries and thirty-ton make up his FC total. In the format, he averages over fifty.
