Nagpur: After scoring a patient century under pressure to lead a remarkable Indian fightback against England in the fourth Test on Saturday, Virat Kohli said this was the innings he had been waiting to play for some time.
"I was waiting for this one long innings. I was working hard for the last one month. You can't keep performing every innings and there will be ups and downs. But you need to stay positive whether you do well or not. That's what I did," said Kohli after the third day's play when he scored 103.
Kohli, along with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, put on a 198-run stand for the fifth wicket to rescue the home team from a precarious 71 for four last evening.
