IND vs AUS, Day 4:India needed a cheerful response from their batters after Australia scored 480 in their first innings of the fourth test. And on 12th March, Virat Kohli joined the celebration with his 28th test century, ending India’s wait to see Kohli score another past 150 mark in Test cricket. Shubman Gill, the opener, had earlier made sure of that with a stylish century. If India goes on to win the game and advances to the World Test Championship (WTC) finally, the century will have even greater significance.
