New Delhi:

Virat Kohli hit a brilliant century in the ongoing One Day international against England at Pune along with equalling the legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 17 centuries in the second innings. 

Further, with this knock, Kohli has once again proved his worth of excelling in pressure situations. 

India was in tough waters and teetering at 63/4 in response to England’s mammoth score of 350/7 when Kedar Jadhav joined skipper Virat Kohli in the middle. 

Both the batsmen played some brilliant strokes and took the fight to the opposition camp. The Indian skipper hit his 27th ODI century and found a brilliant partner in Jadhav after the fall of stalwarts such as KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh.
