4.) 169 v/s Australia, Boxing Day Test Match, Melbourne, 2014
He seemed to do no wrong on that Australia tour back in 2014. After beginning the tour with hundred in each innings in Adelaide, Kohli didn’t turn up for the test in Brisbane, getting dismissed cheaply in both the innings.
Cometh the hour, cometh the man. It was the all important boxing day test. Australia again scored big posting a total of 530 in first innings. India started solidly with Kohli arriving at crease with India at 108-2. As soon as he came, it felt like he was batting for an hour in the nets. He was so at easy, he started hitting all the aussie bowler in every part of the ground.
His fiery attitude was something the Aussies hadn’t liked throughout the tour, and he again got involved in a spicy chit chat with Mitchell Johnson. At 88, Johnson found the outer edge of Kohli’s bat, the ball was heading down the throat of Shane Watson, until Watson dropped the dolly of a catch. Kohli went on to score 169, which is considered on of his better test hundreds.
