Kohli’s century didn’t stop cricketers and former players from showering praises on the him. Former India opener Robin Uthappa lauded Kohli for ending a century drought and entertaining his fans with beautiful strokeplay
“I’d say the gorilla is off the back. What a knock and what an apt celebration after he broke the 100 drought!! Well done @virat.kohli Amazing stuff,” Uthappa said on the Koo app.
With this century, Kohli equalled the record of scoring the second most international tons with former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting. Legendary batter Sachin Tendulkar has scored the most centuries (100) in international cricket.
Kohli also completed 3500 runs in men’s T20I and became the second player to achieve the feat after India skipper Rohit Sharma.
