Latest Cricket News: Virat Kohli, India’s Test captain, showed a different side of himself on the first day of the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town, scoring 79 from 201 balls. After the finish of play, Vikram Rathour, the team’s batting coach, noted that the skipper, who had previously been removed while attempting to nudge balls beyond of the off stump, had shown more discipline with his stroke selection.

India reached 223/10 in their first innings because of Kohli’s tenacious performance. Because of his calm demeanour, the Indian captain appeared to be on his way to ending his century drought, but he was unable to do so after running out of partners.

Former cricketer Gautam Gambhir praised Kohli’s performance, saying that the captain put his ego aside and waited for the bad balls rather than firing at every delivery.

“Virat has said many times that you should leave your ego in India when you go to England; today, Virat Kohli left his ego in the kit bag, and this knock reminds me of his very successful tour of England, where he got beaten many times but left a lot of deliveries outside off-stump,” Gambhir said on Star Sports while reviewing the first day’s play.

“He was defeated today in the same way he left deliveries outside off-stump, but he kept his ego in check. On every delivery, he did not strive to dominate the bowlers “Added he.

South Africa achieved 17/1 at stumps in response to India’s first-inning total, losing the important wicket of captain Dean Elgar. On Day 2, Aiden Markram and night-watchman Keshav Maharaj will resume South Africa’s assault.
