Virat Kohli’s century paucity continues

Virat Kohli's century paucity continues

Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli is currently standing in his 100th Test match as the first encounter of India vs Sri Lanka two-match red-ball series is underway. The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) allowed a short crowd to witness the special moment of history-making in India cricket, but Kohli’s century paucity continues, making the fans wait even more to enjoy the moment.

Kohli’s last century came against Bangladesh in 2019 which counts over two years since he slammed his last international ton. The devastated fans expected the ex-captain to make his 100th Test memorable with a 100, however, the player departed on 45 during the first inning.

The men in blue are featuring in their first-ever Test match without Kohli since he was nowhere around the toss yard. However, the match is centred around him due to record-making, becoming the 12th Indian to enter the 3-digit appearance club.

The wait continues to see Kohli’s century…

It must be noted that by adding 45 runs on Day 1 of the Mohali Test, Kohli has entered the 8000 run-mark, becoming the sixth Indian cricketer to do so. Despite not slamming an international hundred over the last few years, he has made sure to enter the record book concerning multiple new feats. Yet, the wait to see him raising his bat continues as social media is divided over the debate.

Before the match began, Kohli achieved a 100th Test cap from the team coach, Rahul Dravid. The terrific batter is appreciated for the unique record all over the internet.

It must be noted that Virat stepped down from test cricket captaincy after the third Test versus South Africa on a sudden note. Note that the men in blue are playing their first longest format encounter under Rohit Sharma’s commandments. The former skipper could have achieved the milestone earlier but he missed the second Test of the SA series due to injury.
