In the one-day international match that took place in Trivandrum between India and Sri Lanka, one of the greatest batters in the history of the sport, Virat Kohli, scored his third hundred in as many outings, helping India to a “record” 317-run triumph over their opponents.
An avid fan of Virat Kohli took to Twitter to announce that he was getting married on the same day that the former India captain scored his 74th international century for India on Sunday. This news came as fans went crazy after seeing Kohli score 166 runs without being dismissed in the third one-day international match.
The same fan was seen earlier with a banner that read, “I won’t get married till Virat scores his 71st international tonne,” while watching one of India’s matches in the stadium. The banner was seen during one of India’s matches. Kohli had a well-known streak of nearly three years in which he did not hit the triple-digit score.
However, ever since the 33-year-old put an end to the dry spell in the Asia Cup match against Afghanistan in 2017, it has appeared as though he had returned to the prime of his career.
The fan posted a picture of himself dressed in a sherwani along with the following message on Twitter after Kohli had achieved his 74th international century: “I asked for the 71st century but he scored 74th on my special day.” Kohli was celebrating his birthday at the time.
On the day I asked for the 71st century, but he only scored the 74th, I was disappointed.
Since it was originally published, the post has been seen one million times.
Virat got off to a flying start in 2023, scoring two century in the three one-day international matches that India played against Sri Lanka. Given that this is a One-Day International World Cup year, there are enormous expectations placed upon the superstar batter to lead India’s bid to victory.
Kohli was recognised as the “Man of the Match” and “Man of the Series” for his outstanding performance in the third one-day international (ODI) against the Sri Lankans. His match-winning century earned him the “Man of the Match” award, and his total of 283 runs in the series earned him the “Man of the Series” honour.
Coming to the match, it was the biggest recorded victory for a team in terms of runs in the history of one-day international cricket. [Coming to the match] [Coming to the match] In point of fact, the Indian team is the very first team in history to record a victory by a margin of at least 300 runs.
