Virat Kohli’s 44th ODI Century After over 1200 Days

After ending his century drought in this year’s Asia Cup in UAE, Virat Kohli ended his century drought in the ODI format in the 3rd ODI against Bangladesh at Chottogram. This is Kohli’s first century in 25 ODI innings and after 1214 days. The modern-day chasing master hit a classy 91-ball 113 to end his ODI century drought. Kohli eclipsed Ricky Ponting’s number of centuries en route to his 72nd international 100. 

Virat Kohli now stands 2nd in the list of most international tons that is led by the “God of Cricket” Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli is now 28 shy of breaking the little master’s record. Kohli’s century today was his 44th and is only 5 shy of eclipsing the maestro’s 49 ODI centuries record. His last ODI century came against the West Indies in August 2019. 

Additionally, Virat Kohli made some other records as well. He became the only 2nd player after Shane Watson to aggregate 1000 runs in Bangladesh. He now has scored 1000+ runs in three different nations – England and Australia being the other two nations. 

Virat seems to have regained his form in the last 3-4 months. If he can make the most of this form then Sachin’s record of 100 international centuries might not look invincible in days to come.
