Fifty for Virat Kohli, first in Tests in 2023 as he looked in full control through the innings. Virat Kohli reaches his 29th half-century off 107 balls.
It has not been his intention to force the pace, but rather to react to the deliveries made to him. The fields have denied him runs and there have not been many freebies. India stood 269/3. Four overs left to go for the day.
