Virat Kohli: It has been more than 6 months that Virat Kohli hasn’t made any hundred in this form of the game.

Their middle order looks strong in paper and performance while India has clearly shown that their interest lies in Test and T20I this year, so South Africa might have an upper hand in this match.
