Indian cricket team’s great batsman Virat Kohli finally got a century off the bat. He waited 1020 days for his 71st international century. This wait was getting longer and longer, but on 8 September 2022, he scored a century. Even though this is the first century in international cricket, but with Virat’s bat, this 71st century has come in international cricket.
Virat Kohli’s last century with the bat came on 23 November 2019, when he managed to score a century in the Pink Ball Test match against Bangladesh. At the same time, Virat completed a century in 53 balls against Afghanistan with the help of 11 fours and 4 sixes in the Super 4 match of Asia Cup 2022. During this his strikerate was 188.68, which is a big deal in itself.
