Twitterati are in awe of team India captain Virat Kohli after his hard-fought century against England at Birmingham on day 2 of the first of the five-match contest.
Kohli who walked into bat when India was struggling at 54 for 2 after losing Murali Vijay and KL Rahul in the same over, left the ghosts of 2014 tour behind and reached his 22nd Test century as India brought down the hosts’ lead to just 13 runs.
It was the Indian skipper’s 22nd Test century and will go down as one of his best knocks in the longest format of the game.
At one stage, India was struggling at 182/8 in their pursuit of England’s 287. Kohli added over 80 runs for the last two wickets and took India to a respectable total. He survived a number of close calls and was dropped on two occasions on his way to the hundred but made the best of his chances.
The knock created a lot of buzz on social media platforms with fans going crazy about the Indian skipper. One of them went an extra mile and compared the 29-year-old batsman to God using one of the dialogues from Netflix’s Sacred Games – ‘Kabhi Kabhi Lagta Hai Ki Apun Hi Bhagwan Hai’.
Here are some top of the line Twitter reactions –
