It’s been talk of the cricket world when Virat Kohli will get his 71st century, before 2019 it was usual news about Virat Kohli’s century in the news but now that isn’t the same. By the end of 2019, Virat Kohli finished 70 international centuries only next to Sachin Tendulkar, who finished 100 centuries in his 24 years long tenure.
After Sachin Tendulkar’s retirement, Virat Kohli is carrying the former’s legacy. Kohli was scoring the century at a faster pace, and cricketers and fans were expecting him to cross the 100 international century mark.
“Even the mighty do slip” like this proverb after November 2019 Kohli has yet to score a century. he scored last century against the Bangladesh team in 2019 when the Bangladesh team was touring India in 2019. After that, he batted 54 times for India across the format. Cricket fans are expecting every match that he will make the century soon.
Quite a turnaround right? from scoring a century for a fun to couldn’t get a century. Ongoing COVID pandemic is the contributing factor for this, as the number of matches is reduced.
Now Virat Kohli is leading the Indian team in the five test match series against England, in the rain-affected first match, he was dismissed for a golden duck, to delay his search of a century further.
In the second test match India was asked to bat by the England team, let’s hope Virat Kohli’s century drought will be over in this test series against England.
Ahead of the test match, cricket fans on Twitter recorded some interesting tweets about Kohli’s much needed 71st century.
Robin Saroy tweeted that “when we going to see his celebration.
And meme page, trolled the English weather by saying that Virat Kohli’s century delayed by the rain.
This tweet is a sarcastic one, When India won the medal in Olympics Gautam Gambir told that the medal is bigger than the 1983, 2007, and 2011 world cup win. having that in mind cricket fan tweeted.
