“I badly wanted to get a hundred and get an eye in early and dictate terms,” is how the Indian vice captain described his elevation to the No 4 position, left vacant by Sachin Tendulkar.

Virat Kohli said he was disappointed to have been in the run out that cost Cheteswar Pujara’s wicket.

The Delhi dasher went on to taunt the South African bowlers stating that they were not too difficult to play but respected the fact that they were “ world class bowlers whom any player would love to challenge himself “

Kohli was immensely happy with his hundred and said it was his best hundred to date and added that he would like his team to get to 400 and take it to the opposition.
