Virat Kohli is gone. There's no century #31 today. A bit of fatigue, was it? Could be. Nathan Coulter-Nile gets a length ball to seam in a bit which Kohli tries to run down to third man, but ends up playing it onto the stumps. The Eden Gardens is on its feet to applaud the India captain, who walks for a 107-ball 92.
The years of exile have played a part no doubt, as has India refusing to play them (that has also significantly reduced the true value of a broadcast deal reportedly worth $150 million over five years). The cost of running an excessively vast domestic calendar is another drain.
FYI: Harmanpreet Kaur not on the field after her blockbuster innings.
