Virat Kohli likes pressure. He likes crisis situations. Had he not chosen a career in cricket, Kohli would have done a fine job as a firefighter, dousing roaring flames, doing the rescue act. Eight of Kohli's 13 ODI tons have come in the cauldron of a high-voltage chase. His batting blooms whenever there is an air of fatality to India's chances. He sniffs opportunity in disaster and that's what makes him so special. His recent ton against England at Nagpur was a testimony of that. We at MSN India take a look at some of Kohli's knocks in which he repaired, rebuilt and restored India's pride in the face what could have been an inevitable defeat
Match: India v England
Series: 4th Test, England's tour of India, 2012
The setting: India had gone down 2-1 to visitors England in the 4-match series and nothing short of a win could help them avoid a humiliating series defeat at home. England managed to score 330 in their first innings and in their reply, India were struggling at 87/4 at the end of the second day.
What Kohli did: He joined hands with skipper MS Dhoni to put up a heroic fight on day 3. Hardly anyone would have predicted a ton from Kohli, especially considering his form during the previous games in the series. However, he showed tremendous courage and stability at the crease as he and Dhoni nearly played out the entire day and dragged India right back into the game.
