Virat Kohli broke MS Dhoni's record for the most Test runs as India captain on day three of the final match of the series at the Wanderers. 

Kohli played a skipper's knock in such tough batting conditions, passing Dhoni's tally of 3454 as the tourists built a handy lead on Friday.

The classy Kohli showed his strength of character to hang in there on a surface which provided a major examination, with extreme movement off the seam and swing to go with indifferent bounce.

Kohli struck six boundaries in a patient 41, falling in the afternoon session when Kagiso Rabada cleaned him up with an unplayable delivery.

India were 134-5 when Kohli departed, leading by 127 in Johannesburg.
