2nd Test Australia vs India Perth: India skipper Virat Kohli brought up his 25th Test ton in style, with a trademark straight-drive of Mitchell Starc, where he just timed the ball and it went to the fence. His celebration after that where he pointed a finger towards his bat and made a gesture that it is talking has created social buzz. This surely is one of Kohli’s best knocks as the pitch was a lively one and it was a quality bowling attack he was facing. He had walked into the middle with the team reeling at 8/2 and that is what makes the ton even more special.
Here is Kohli’s celebration after his ton.
Here is how Twitter reacted to his celebration.
He has already amassed more than 2500 runs across formats and has done it for three years, which is a massive reason why India today is a team to reckon with. He also completed 1000 runs outside Asia in 2018. Kohli also went past Sachin Tendulkar for the highest Test average in SENA countries. Virat Kohli now only the third India batsman to score 1000 runs in away Tests in a calendar year. Previous two: Mohinder Amarnath (1065 runs in 1983) and Rahul Dravid (1137 runs in 2002). 6th Test century in Australia for Virat Kohli. Now equals the Sachin Tendulkar record of scoring, the most test centuries in Australia by an Indian.
