Virat Kohli has been yearning for this record for the last 11 years! Will the dream come true this time?

New Delhi. Virat Kohli is the greatest batsman of the current era. From Test cricket to ODI and then T20. In every format of cricket, his bat creates a ruckus. He has scored more than 23 thousand runs in international cricket so far. Apart from this, Virat has 70 centuries to his name. And then the average of over 55. In a career of 13 years, Virat has captured many big records. On the batting front, he has challenged the great Sir Don Bradman to Sachin Tendulkar many times. But there is also a stage of international cricket for which Virat Kohli has been like for the last 11 years. And that is a century in T20 Internationals.

Virat Kohli, who made his debut in T20 International in the year 2010, has played a total of 90 matches so far. During this he has scored 3159 runs. No batsman in the world has scored so many runs in T20 Internationals. But alas, despite scoring so many runs, he has not scored any century so far. In such a situation, the fans hope that this time during the T20 World Cup, their wish will definitely be fulfilled.

miss a century
By the way, if we look at the record of T20 International, Virat Kohli missed out on completing a century thrice. The special thing is that he remained not out after reaching the century three times. In January 2016, he remained unbeaten on 90 against Australia at the Adelaide ground. In the same year, during the T20 World Cup, he remained not out after scoring 89 runs against the West Indies. After this, in December 2019, he got a chance to score a century once again against the West Indies. But he had to be content with 94 runs. In fact, he took Team India to the destination of victory by 8 balls already.

century in T20
If we talk about overall T20 cricket, then Virat Kohli has scored a total of 5 centuries in this format so far. In the 2016 IPL, he scored a century against Gujarat Lions in just 53 balls. In such a situation, Virat Kohli would like to make it memorable by scoring a century in this time’s T20 World Cup.
