On Thursday, Virat Kohli ended his long wait for a 71st international century and his first in Twenty20 Internationals as he drove India to a massive 101-run victory over Afghanistan in their last Super Fours match at the Asia Cup.
Ahead of the tournament, Kohli’s lean patch and his return to cricket after a break where he missed India’s tours of West Indies and Zimbabwe was a big talking point. However, the former India captain put all that to rest as he finished the tournament with 276 runs at an average of 92 with scores of 35, 59*, 60, 0 and 122* in five matches.
After the match-winning knock against Afghanistan in Dubai, the player of the match opened up to captain Rohit Sharma in a candid interview conducted by BCCI. He spoke about his return to form, returning to his template, his responsibility in the Indian team and the importance of KL Rahul’s knock.
The milestone we’d all been waiting for and here it is!
