Played an innings of 116 runs, in which he also hit 11 fours and a six.
Virat returned in old color
Indian cricket team’s dashing batsman Virat Kohli has returned to his old rhythm. Kohli recently played an excellent century in the ODI series against Sri Lanka. Virat Kohli has 46 centuries in ODI format while he has scored 27 centuries in Tests. In this way, Kohli has come closest to breaking India’s great batsman Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 centuries.
During the Asia Cup last year, Kohli also scored his first century in T20 International against Afghanistan. However, before this, Kohli was struggling to score a century for almost three years. Kohli has undoubtedly scored a century in T20 and ODIs recently but he is still waiting for a century in Tests.
India lost in Kohli’s first Test century
Virat Kohli scored the first century of his career in the Adelaide Test match, but in this match India got an unforgettable defeat. Batting first in the match, Australia declared their innings by scoring 604 runs for 7 wickets. In response, Team India could score only 272 runs, due to which Australia got a lead of 332 runs in the first innings.
In the second innings too, the Kangaroo team declared their innings by scoring 167 runs, after which Team India had a target of 500 runs to win, but the entire team was reduced to 201 runs.
