After Virat Kohli scored 122 runs off 61 balls against Afghanistan, Chennai Super Kings published a Twitter thread to pay appreciation to Kohli’s incredible performance.
Now, surely, Virat Kohli and the millions of other Indian cricket fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Because the former captain of the Indian cricket team has finally hit the century mark after more than a thousand days of trying to do so. The match against Afghanistan in India’s final Super 4 game at the Asia Cup was where Kohli scored his 71st international century.
Even though India had been eliminated from the tournament before the century was scored, the fact that it was scored bodes well for the team’s chances of success in the Twenty20 World Cup. In addition, the Chennai Super Kings, which is a team in the Indian Premier League, tweeted out a special homage to Kohli after he scored 122 not out off of 61 balls played against Afghanistan.
“They are saying that the King has returned. But he never left, did he? He engaged in battle by plunging himself into the fray, again and over again! He was fearless in the face of battles and wounds, never giving up or running away! A tenacious warrior will overcome any obstacle that stands in their way. Cricket hai abhi baaki! #WhistlePodu, “The Chennai Super Kings social media handle tweeted a number of separate messages.
On Thursday, the evening belonged to Kohli, who played an outstanding innings that won the hearts of a billion people. The undefeated effort off 61 balls earned him his first hundred since November 2019 and his 71st overall, bringing his total of international centuries to the same number as Ricky Ponting’s.
In terms of the all-time list, he is presently only one spot behind Sachin Tendulkar. Additionally, it was Kohli’s first century scored in the shortest version of the game. Stand-in captain K.L. Rahul (62 runs off 41 balls) and captain Virat Kohli combined for an entertaining 119 runs off 76 balls for the opening wicket. This was accomplished despite the fact that Rohit Sharma did not play in India’s final game of the tournament.
Near the close of the innings, Kohli began to play about with the field and the bowlers, which was a clear sign that he was performing at his peak level once again. Since coming back from his injury, Rahul’s knock was the one in which he displayed the most self-assurance.
They wanted to improve in this area before the Twenty20 World Cup, therefore it was great to see the openers play so well against the spinners, notably Rashid Khan (33), who took 0 for 33.
