The third Test of the four-Test series between India and England will be played at Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad from February 24. This is the first time India and England will play against each other with a pink ball in a day-night Test match. This test match is considered very important in view of the outcome of the series. At the same time, audiences expect strong innings from Team India captain Virat Kohli in this match. Kohli played 62 runs in the second innings of the Chennai Test, but could not end his century’s drought. Nearly a year after Virat’s century came off the bat, the question remains as to whether the Indian captain will be able to end the drought by hitting a century in the world’s largest cricket stadium.
Why the RCB told the Australian Playing XI, the reason is so much fun
In the early days of his career, Virat was considered a good ball batsman, but Kohli could not leave his mark in the Test. He was criticized after Kohli’s flap shaw in a Test series against England in 2014. However, after captaining the long form of cricket, Virat’s bat has spoken strongly in Test cricket and he has made runs in both domestic and overseas series. In 2016 and 2017, the right-handed batsman scored a stellar goal in domestic Test matches. After this, Virat’s own runs came off the bat even during the toughest of times like South Africa and England. Kohli played 254 runs against South Africa at the end of 2019 and scored 136 against Bangladesh in the Pink Ball Test.

Looking at the 2019 form, Kohli’s bat was believed to make a run on the New Zealand tour, but it did not. Virat could only score 38 runs in four innings of the first Test series of 2020, and Team India lost 2–0 in the series. After this, cricket was completely broken for several months due to Kovid-19 and India played a Test series against Australia at the end of the year. Kohli was only able to play the first Test of the series due to paternity leave. Virat, who played with the pink ball in the first innings of the match, was heading into his century, due to a mess in a tie with Ajinkya Rahane, which Kohli had to return to the pavilion after scoring 75 runs and out of the year. Saying goodbye after a century without 2020 Kohli.
In the Test series against England, Team India captain has scored two fifties, but he is unable to end his century drought. Prior to this, Kohli had scored 13 consecutive innings at the start of his career, but this time Virat has played 10 innings. In 21 innings played after 2019, Kohli has not been able to cross the seven-and-a-half-digit mark. At the same time, Virat, who has dropped to zero 11 times in his entire Test career, has been out of zero three times since 2019.
