Virat Kohli has always been someone who you can rely completely upon. On many occasions, Virat Kohli has rescued the team from a crisis and this time it happened during the second ODI at the Vidarbha Cricket Association. The situation was no different as the hosts lost three early wickets. Rohit Sharma made way to the pavilion on a duck, Shikhar Dhawan on 21 from 29 balls and Ambati Rayudu also did not make a great score and departed on 18. India was 75-3 when Rayudu made way to the pavilion. The onus was on the India captain Virat Kohli to guide India to a big total. The Indian captain once again proved his mettle and scored his 40th century and now is just 10 hundreds away from breaking Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s record. Check out our Live updates for the match here.
