The numbers game itself is tremendous. From the year 2019 till now, if we talk about hitting sixes, then Umesh Yadav has also hit more sixes than Virat, he has hit 11 sixes in 155 balls.
- Virat’s fifth six after 2019
- Virat hit a six to Kagiso Rabada
- Virat scored 79 runs in the first innings
Kagiso Rabada bowled brilliantly on the first day of the third Test between India and South Africa (IND vs SA), but seeing the manner in which Virat Kohli was playing his first innings of the year, everyone saw him. Fans were very happy. When Kagiso Rabada was dominating the Indian batsmen, at that time a six of Virat Kohli Kohli again made Rabada feel the power of his batting. By the way, all kinds of figures are being fitted about this six of Virat.

If you compare his sixes with Rohit Sharma, then Rohit has hit 51 sixes during this period. Mayank Agarwal has hit 25 and Rishabh Pant has hit the ball 18 times in the stands.
A rare six for Virat Kohli in Tests!
Today his six at Cape Town is the only fifth in the last three years!
During the same period Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal and Rishabh Pant have hit 31, 25 & 18 sixes respectively!#IndvSA#IndvsSA#SAvIND#INDvsSA

This six of Virat Kohli came in the 41st over of Indian batting on the first day. It was the first six of this match. However, Rabada had bowled a good bouncer which Virat played while pulling defensively and Virat and the team got six runs off the ball. The game of statistics is tremendous, since the year 2019 till now, if we talk about hitting sixes, then Umesh Yadav has also hit more sixes than Virat, he has hit 11 sixes in 155 balls.
I think Umesh Yadav have more sixes than Kohli

If we talk about the match, then the Indian team was out for 223 runs in their first innings as most of the batsmen could not do much except captain Kohli. KL Rahul, who scored a century in the first Test, could only add 12 runs to the scoreboard. His opening partner Mayank also added 15 runs in 35 balls. Under-fire Cheteshwar Pujara missed his half-century after scoring 43 runs in 77 balls.
