Don't think after this knock @imVkohli needs to prove anything to anyone on his journey to greatness— yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) August 3, 2018
A lot of heat on Kohli and produces a 100 in his first innings. #class— Usman Khawaja (@Uz_Khawaja) August 2, 2018
A masterclass from Virat Kohli, leading from the front. A display of tremendous character determination and grit #ENGIND— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) August 2, 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed watching that battle. Test cricket at it's best. Triumph over adversity and a joy to watch Virat Kohli craft, construct and conquer his surroundings on to his 22nd test century.— ian bishop (@irbishi) August 2, 2018
For one of the best stroke players in the world, this Virat 100 was about 'not' playing strokes.— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) August 2, 2018
Left 40 balls alone. 26 against Anderson. That's more than 4 overs of Anderson left alone!
This man proves himself again and again with such crucial knocks. A hundred and that too playing with the tail which is not an easy task at all. Required a lot of patience and determination. What a player! @imVkohli #ENDvIND— R P Singh (@rpsingh) August 2, 2018
What a player what a knock #Kohli— Mason Crane (@masoncrane32) August 2, 2018
