New Delhi. Virat Kohli once again missed a century and this is the second consecutive time, when he could not score a century in international cricket. He scored the last century in the Day Night Test against Bangladesh in Kolkata in November 2019. After this 25 months have passed. But the Indian captain’s bat has not scored a century in all three formats, Test, ODI and T20. He was dismissed by 21-year-old Marco Jansen, playing the first Test for South Africa on the fourth day of the Centurion Test. Kohli returned to the pavilion after getting out on the very first ball after lunch.
Indian captain Virat Kohli Tried to drive Jensen’s delivery which was well outside the off-stump. This mistake was heavy for Kohli and taking the edge of his bat, the ball went into the hands of Quinton de Kock behind the wicket. Kohli was dismissed after scoring 18 runs in 32 balls. Kohli was seen in rhythm in this innings as well. Because he had got 16 out of 18 runs only from the boundary. But once again he missed the big innings.
Jensen openly expressed his happiness after taking the wicket of Virat and it is imperative to do so. Because he dismissed the best batsman of the current era.

Interestingly, Marco was the net bowler of Team India during India’s 2018 tour of South Africa. At that time, Indian captain Virat Kohli was also very impressed with his speed and swing. Then Marco had troubled Kohli a lot in the practice session of the Indian team before the Johannesburg Test. Then Virat had been beaten several times on the ball of this fast bowler and told him the future of South Africa and after 3 years in the debut test itself, Jensen proved his words true by dismissing the Indian captain. Jensen has also taken a wicket in the first innings.
Marco bowled brilliantly against India A
Marko had also performed brilliantly with both the ball and the bat during the recent India-A tour of South Africa. He played all three unofficial test matches and took 6 wickets in total. Apart from this, batted in 4 innings, out of which 2 were not out. This left-arm fast bowler has a great record in first-class cricket as well. Marco has taken 70 wickets in 19 first class matches. He has done five-wicket haul 3 times.
