Indian skipper Virat Kohli registered consecutive half-centuries as he breached the milestone in the afternoon session on day one of the Oval Test. The tourists’ top-order had been dismantled for all money early in the morning session, and the fledgeling innings beseeched a captain’s knock. Kohli paid little heed to the recommendations of him blocking out the cover drive, unfurling a playlist of tracer bullets through the region in which he fancies scoring very much.
5⃣0⃣ for Virat Kohli! 👏
The India skipper has looked good today and reaches his half-century from 85 balls, the tourists could do with a few more from him yet! #ENGvIND 🏴🇮🇳
