Virat Kohli finally broke his century drought to an end with his 71st international century, against Afghanistan – a ton after 1019 days. It was his maiden T20I century as India scored 212 in its final match in Asia Cup against Afghanistan.
Kohli went on to hammer 122 runs from 61 balls and wishes started pouring in from all over the world after his milestone. “The great is back,” wrote Pakistani bowler Hassan Ali, while Bangladesh’s Mushfiqur Rahim wrote, “One thing was missing and he did it in style.”
Kohli’s former teammate in the Indian Premier League, AB de Villiers also took to Twitter, reacting to the historic century. Kohli ‘dancing again’, he wrote. Former Indian pace bowler and T20 World Cup winner R. P. Singh wrote “King Kohli is back and in what form”.
