After playing patiently and firmly in 142 deliveries, Virat kohli lost his wicket while playing a loosely covered car driving away from his body during the final test against South Africa in Cape Town. He came back after scoring 29, leaving India with a score of 152-5.
Lungi Ngidi was erratic throughout while the India captain was even more cautious than he was in the first inning, letting things stay out of his hands. But the right-hander scored it on the second ball of the 49th inning. He lunged at a siderunner at a teasing length, demanding Kohli break his concentration, what the Indian captain did by taking the shot with hard hands and moving it.
The ball flies high and fast Aiden Markram on the second slide and the athlete jumped all the way to grab it with both hands. Here are some wicket videos:
Kohli helped India rebuild from weakness with a score of 58-4. He absorbed the initial pressure, allowing Rishabh Pant, on the other end, to play his shots and change the momentum of the rounds. And while Southpaw has gone through its half-century, Kohli’s stick has brought the game back into balance.

Ravichandran Ashwin replaced his captain in the middle and returned to score just 7. Shardul Thakur was soon sacked after scoring just 5 (18).
With a lead of just over 180 (at the time of writing), India will need at least 70 more runs or two good partnerships to get them to relative safety. Any contribution from subordinates can help determine the outcome of the Test in the long run.
