New Delhi
India captain Virat Kohli has been ruled out of the second Test against South Africa at the Wanderers due to injury. With this, he will miss playing the 100th Test in the Test in Cape Town. The 99th match of his Test career will now be in Cape Town and he will have to wait for the 100th Test, as only 3 Tests are to be played in the series against South Africa.

If Kohli plays the third Test of the series at Newlands in Cape Town, it will be the 99th Test of his career. Asked about Kohli’s absence at the toss, Rahul expressed hope that he would be available for the final Test in Cape Town from January 11. The BCCI also said that pacer Jasprit Bumrah will be the vice-captain of the team for the second Test. Earlier, Bumrah was appointed as the vice-captain for the ODI series, which will begin after the Test series is over.

After this, according to India’s schedule, Kohli can play his 100th Test at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, where the first Test against Sri Lanka is to be held on February 25. This ground is very special for Kohli, as it is the home ground of IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Kohli is a frequent part of this franchise and has also captained the team till last season.

It is noteworthy that Kohli has scored 7854 runs in 98 Tests at an impressive average of 50.35. During this, his best score has been 254, while the strike rate has been 56.28. He has 27 centuries and 27 half-centuries to his name including 7 double centuries. However, the last two years have not been very good for Kohli. He is yearning for a century. He last scored a century in 2019 against Bangladesh. It was expected that he would return to form if he plays in India’s first Test in the new year, but it did not happen.
