Former RCB captain Virat Kohli said in AB de Villiers’ YouTube show that when I scored this century and converted it into a big score, I again found peace, comfort and excitement. Virat said that he and AB have been in touch for some time, he knows how much importance I give to Test cricket.

It was constantly testing me. It is something that I enjoy as a cricketer.
