Virat Kohli is the most chanted cricketer’s name in contemporary cricket. The way he is going about his business, it’s just a matter of feeling that he will be the only one in this era who can break the records set by Sachin Tendulkar if not can come close to that.
Venues change, format change, conditions change but Virat Kohli remains the same. For other batsmen, essaying a century comes on an occasion. But for Virat Kohli, it is just like a routine work who keeps accomplishing it like a hot knife through butter.
Virat Kohli hasn’t had the best of good memories at Eden Gardens as his records are not that impressive. He got out for a duck in the first innings of the opening Test against Sri Lanka. However, Kohli had ideas to take his game a level forward in the 2nd innings.
Much to his determination towards the game, he went on to score his 18th Test century, 11th Test century as captain, 9th international century this year and on top of that, he essayed his 50th international century in what was vital to break the hoodoo at Eden.
However, as an individual, Virat Kohli said that it feels good for him to have scored 50 international centuries. But according to him, upping his ante and performing for the team is more important than counting the number of centuries he has scored in life.
“Feels good (on 50 international 100s) My journey hasn’t been long but I want to continue contributing, especially in situations like these,” the Indian skipper told at the post-match presentation after the first Test ended in a draw.
“If I can step up and perform, that will give me more pleasure than thinking about the number of hundreds I have. The mindset is always to go forward and help the team forward, and win Test matches,” Virat Kohli concluded.
