I respect quite a few of them, but someone who doesn't respect me I have no reason to respect him."<p></p><p></p>The 272-ball 169 is Kohli's highest score in Test cricket and his fourth century against Australia down under, two (115 and 141) coming in the first test at Adelaide.<p></p><p></p>Kohli was involved in a 262-run stand with centurion (147) Ajinkya Rahane, which helped India inch closer to the mammoth total of 530 posted by the hosts.
