But on this day, his restrained batting and understanding of the ball has taken the mind away from the game. Virat made a half-century in the second slowest Test of his career. In the 201-run innings, Kohli struck 12 dazzling fours and one six. And the discussion is going on with these six. Sports statistician Mohandas Menon tweeted that these six ‘rare’ deaths of giants! In the 41st over of India’s innings, Kagiso Rabadar hit a top AJ six. Menon says this is Kohli’s fifth six in the last three years. During this period, Rohit Sharma has hit 31, Mayank Agarwal 25 and Rishabh Panth 16 sixes.

With the exception of Kohli’s 69 and Cheteshwar Pujara’s 43, none of the Indian batsmen have scored significant runs. Rabada (4 wickets) and Marco Janssen (3 wickets) lit the fire with the ball. Duane Oliver, Lungi Nidi and Keshab Maharaj took one wicket each. This time it is the job of Indian bowlers. At the end of the day, South Africa lost 1 wicket and scored 17 runs. Opener and captain Dean Elgar (3) was caught by Pujara with a boomerang ball. Aiden Markram (6) and Keshab Maharaj (6) are unbeaten at the end of the day. South Africa trailed by 206 runs.
