Kohli: 'During the Australia series, all I was thinking of was getting a Test match ton in South Africa. That was all that was on my mind. I wasn't even focussing on those ODI matches or any of the games we played against the West Indies. This was something I wanted to do badly.

'Every training session I had that same thing in mind that I was motivating myself to do something like this because I know how special it has been for players to get a century in South Africa. It's something very pleasing for me because that was probably the best I've batted in Test cricket.'
