Kohli came to bat after Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma took India off to a flying start. Shadab Khan prized out the wicket of Rohit, after which Kohli came out. Soon after, the Men in Blue lost another wicket of Gill, who fell to the guile of Shaheen Shah Afridi.

When rain interrupted proceedings, Kohli was unbeaten on eight runs. When play resumed on reserve day at 4:40 PM IST, Kohli looked a tad cautious about starting his knock. But he gradually upped the ante to score his half-century off 55 balls.

After reaching his fifty, Kohli stepped further on the gas and started taking the attack to the Pakistani bowlers. During this while, he also brought up his 100-run stand with KL Rahul, who looked in good form on his return following an injury layoff.
