Virat Kohli Centuries

Virat Kohli is an Indian cricketer who has established himself as one of the greatest batsmen in the world. He is the current captain of the Indian national team and has scored more than 20,000 runs in international cricket. He is also the only batsman to have scored more than 11,000 runs in ODIs and more than 6,000 runs in Test cricket.

Kohli has been particularly prolific when it comes to centuries, having scored 73 centuries in international cricket so far. He has scored 45 centuries in ODIs and 27 centuries in Test matches. His first century came against Sri Lanka in 2009 when he scored 107 off just 111 balls. Since then, he has gone on to score many more centuries across all formats of the game.

Kohli holds several records for his century-scoring feats. He holds the record for most ODI centuries by an Indian batsman with 73 centuries and is also the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 ODI runs. In Test cricket, he holds the record for most consecutive Test centuries by an Indian with six consecutive hundreds between October 2016 and February 2017. He also holds the record for most Test hundreds by an Indian captain with 11 tons so far.

Kohli’s century-scoring feats have made him one of the most feared batsmen in world cricket today. His ability to score big hundreds under pressure makes him a valuable asset for any team he plays for and his consistency at scoring centuries makes him one of the greatest batsmen of all time.

Kohli scored an unbeaten 183 off 148 balls against Pakistan in the 2012 Asia Cup. This was his first ODI century and it helped India to a comfortable victory. He went on to score another century against Sri Lanka in the same tournament, becoming the first Indian batsman to score two centuries in a single tournament.

Kohli has since gone on to break several records, including becoming the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 ODI runs and becoming the first player to score five consecutive centuries in ODIs. His highest ODI score remains his 183 against Pakistan, which is also the highest individual score by any batsman against Pakistan in ODIs.
