The ongoing Test match between South Africa and India was set for an exciting day of action on Wednesday. It was a sunny day in Centurion and fans were waiting for Indian batsman to extend their lead over the home side. After a couple of wickets in the first session, Virat Kohli walked out to bat and looked in scintillating touch.

The right-handed batsman had got himself off to a steady start and just like always, fans started to think that it was D-Day when the Indian captain will finally end his century drought to hit his 71st international ton.

Virat has been waiting for the milestone since 2019 and people started to believe that it will finally come in his last innings of 2021.

Yet Another Century less year continues for Kohli:

But unfortunately for everyone, there’s a heartbreak waiting! On the first ball after lunch, Kohli tried to chase a service line outside the tree and gain the advantage while she waited for her century to resume. He was fired on 18/32 and, as expected, the social network was on fire. Internet users began to express their disappointment as Twitter was flooded with messages surrounding Kohli’s dismissal. There are a lot of memes going on, specifically focusing on Kohli’s temptation to play the part of a cover reader and hand over his racquet, which has been a popular trend among cricketers over the past few years.

Here is how Twitter reacted to Virat Kohli’s dismissal :

Over the past two years, coinciding with the drought of the century, Kohli’s scores have increased by a percentage point in the region and decreased in tests as scientists around the world are targeting it is outside this channel. The former Indian cricketer feels that pitchers are counting on Kohli’s patience to score in this channel and succeed there. Yes, Kohli will start the New Year knowing that it has been a long time since he raised his stick and arm to celebrate.
