Anushka Sharma reveals Virat Kohli played "through sickeness" during mammoth 186-run knock.

Right-handed batter Virat Kohli ended his Test century drought as he brought up the three-figure mark against Australia in the ongoing fourth Test of the Border-Gavaskar series at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The batter eventually was dismissed for 186 by Todd Murphy. His innings was studded with 15 fours and the batter showed great patience and composure as he batted at a strike rate of 51.10. 

Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma took to her Instagram story to speak about how the batter keeps on inspiring her. She also revealed that the star played batted through sickness in the innings.

Resharing the clip shared by the official handle of the Indian cricket team where Kohli was celebrating his century, Anushka wrote: "Playing through sickness with this composure. Inspiring me always."

When Axar Patel, who scored 79 runs in the first innings of the ongoing 4th Test, was asked about Virat Kohli's sickness during the post-stumps press conference, he said: "I don't know anything about it, the way he was running between the wickets, it did not look like he was sick. The way he built a partnership, he ran between the wickets, it was a nice partnership with him."

Before the fourth Test against Australia, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma visited the Mahakaleshwar Temple in Madhya Pradesh's Ujjain.

Talking about the ongoing Test, Australia batted first and they posted 480 runs on the board.

Then, Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill scored centuries to help India post 571 runs on the board, extending the lead to 91 runs. 

At stumps on Day 4, Australia's score read 3-0, still trailing by 88 runs. For the visitors, Travis Head (3*) and Matthew Kuhnemann (0*) are still at the crease. 

India are already 2-1 up in the series and if they manage to win this Test, they will secure a spot in the finals of the World Test Championship.

If Rohit Sharma and co lose or draw the ongoing Test, then they need to hope that Sri Lanka does not win the ongoing two-match Test series against New Zealand by a margin of 2-0.

Australia have already made their way to the World Test Championship final. The summit clash of WTC will be played in June at The Oval, London.
