He survived a South African review for an LBW off the bowling of debutant Lungi Ngidi, but aside from that Kohli was all that stood in the way of a South African procession on day two of the second Test at Centurion on Sunday.

Kohli had spoken before the match about showing more "intent" against SA's seam attack and he duly delivered, compiling a brilliant 153 from 217 balls.

"They could have played Ishant in place of any other bowler".

Bumrah took 2-19 as South Africa were reduced to 60/2 in their second innings.

But Kohli was clearly not happy when play resumed in South Africa´s second innings after an hour-long rain break.

But nobody did better than Ngidi who bowled spells of four and five overs respectively of sustained pace, aggression and accuracy that earned him Parthiv Patel as his maiden Test wicket. "If we get early wickets tomorrow, the match can be in anybody's favour". So then why did Virender Sehwag just single out Kohli for his batting form recently? To the thunderous applause from all those who had descended to watch the match, the Indian captain celebrated the achievement with a gesture that will melt anyone's heart.

Like all great batsmen, he seemed to be batting on a different pitch.

Sehwag said: "Watching Virat Kohli exclude Shikhar Dhawan for just one Test failure, and Bhuvneshwar for no reason at all, Kohli should drop himself in the third Test at Johannesburg, if he fails to perform in Centurion".

"But once I let it go I got the feeling that this was my moment and I need to grab it with both hands". His footwork, balletic yet beautifully barbaric when it suited, turned length into full balls, as he willed tired bowlers into giving him what his willow wanted. But the nature of the pitch shouldn't detract from his innings.

Outside of this wicket making Ashwin a major threat to the South African batsmen, it has also severely limited the impact the Proteas had hoped their fast bowlers would have on this potentially series-deciding fixture. It came when the combined contribution of others in the top six was 85 runs. Kohli's predecessors marbled the path before him with a limitless bounty of legendary innings, but none came to Africa and tamed the beast that has big men hurling pride from 22 yards. "We are going to test them and in a scenario we have a chance to go at the target or for a win everyone knows that we will do that", Kohli had said on the eve of the game. With only three runs on the board, pacer Jasprit Bumrah pegged back South Africa with two quick wickets of in-form Aiden Markram (1) and experienced batsman Hashim Amla (1).

"We expected there would be bounce on the wicket. It's always good when the captain is leading from the front and taking responsibility". De Villiers, who got off the mark with a boundary off the very first delivery that he faced in this innings, is the main main to watch out for as far as the Indians are concerned, and getting rid of him as early as possible on the fourth day will be of utmost importance. Either they couldn't cope at the very beginning, or they threw it all away once they settled down.
