Recap: When Virat Kohli scored his 70th international century

Virat Kohli 70th century

Virat Kohli is one of the greatest cricketers of this generation. However, the last few years have not gone in the desired route for the legend. Since November 2019, the player has failed to score a century. For a player who used to smash hundreds regularly, the recent record is extremely surprising. The fans hope that Virat will get that coveted hundred soon. Meanwhile, in this article, we look back at the Test match when Virat Kohli scored his 70th international century.

A trademark Virat Kohli innings

Batting at No.4 in Test cricket, Virat has scored 27 centuries so far. For him, scoring centuries came naturally and almost effortlessly. Especially at home, Virat was a very difficult wicket to get. It was in the day-night Test that started on November 22nd against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens when Virat made his 70th century.

In the first innings, he scored 136 runs from 194 balls. The knock included eighteen boundaries in all. He had set India a good platform and the bowlers made it a comfortable victory for the hosts.

Virat will be under pressure to get the monkey off the back

It is almost three years since Virat has got to three figures. If not for Virat, any other player would have struggled to find a place in the XI. However, Virat is an elite cricketer and it will be the team's loss if they drop a player with so much experience. That said, Virat himself will be itching to get a big hundred. If that happens, it would not be a surprise if he gets a few more of them in quick succession. That was what happened in the past and Virat is capable of pulling it off again. The next assignment will be against England in the one-off Test before the limited-overs series against the same opposition.
