In the fourth Test of the series in Ahmedabad, team India batsman Virat Kohli said that he was content with his decision to remain patient during his century against Australia.
He identified his defense as his biggest suit and noted that being physically fit helped him play a whole inning.
In India's opening innings of the Ahmedabad Test, Kohli reached three figures for his first Test century since November 2019.
With 364 balls in all, the 34-year-old went on to make a huge score, finishing with 186. He played for 517 minutes, and there were 15 fours in his inning.
Kohli discussed how he prepared his innings in the Ahmedabad Test during a post-match conversation with head coach Rahul Dravid. The former captain stated in a bcci.tv-posted video:
I have to be patient and believe in my defense. That's the model I've always used in Test cricket. My strongest suit is my defense.
When I defend effectively, I know that when the ball is loose and ready to hit, I can cash in and score the runs I require.
