Gavaskar gave his serious advice at an important time when India was already ahead of South Africa in their first innings during the first day of the second Test. After Burger’s aggressive move, Kohli showed his strength by hitting three boundaries in the next few deliveries he faced.

These situations make Virat Kohli even more determined, motivating him to score lots of runs with stronger determination. Gavaskar mentioned on the broadcast that although it may seem like a competition is set, Kohli is not someone who gets affected by aggressive behavior.

Back in the 2018-19 Test series between Australia and India, ex-captain Tim Paine cautioned his teammates not to sledge or provoke Virat Kohli while he’s batting. Kohli performs even better when faced with a tough challenge or when opponents try to get under his skin. Paine’s advice was to avoid unnecessary talk or actions that might fire up Kohli and boost his performance on the field.

India asked South Africa to bat first, and the South Africa could only score a small total of 55 runs. Mohammed Siraj, with his outstanding skills, took six wickets in a single innings, achieving his first-ever six-wicket haul in Test matches. Jasprit Bumrah and Mukesh Kumar also played a part in India’s success by taking two wickets each.
