When India begins their campaign for the Asia Cup 2022 on Sunday in Dubai against their bitter rivals Pakistan, star batter Virat Kohli will be representing the nation in his 100th Twenty20 International match. He will also become the first player in the history of the game to play a hundred matches for India across all formats of the game. The Asia Cup 2022 begins on Sunday. The fact that Virat Kohli has been able to play for his country in 100 matches across all three formats since making his debut in an international competition in 2008 is evidence of his longevity in the sport, his consistency, and the unwavering faith that his team has shown in him throughout the many highs and lows of his illustrious career.
Virat Kohli has played for Team India in a total of 99 Twenty20 Internationals, during which he has scored 3,308 runs at an average of 50.12 runs per game. His individual best score for India in this format is 94, and he has 30 half-centuries to his name in this format.
This renowned batter will have led his side as captain on 50 different teams between 2017 and 2021. He has a record of 30 wins and 16 losses out of these 50 games. There have been two matches that have finished in a draw, while the other two have failed to produce a winner. An astounding 64.58 percent of his games as captain have resulted in wins for his teams.
When Kohli walks out onto the field, he will be thinking about beating Pakistan and producing a knock that wins the match for his team. The most recent Twenty20 International (T20I) match between these two fierce rivals ended with India suffering a humiliating defeat by ten wickets. This was also the case in general. In that match, Kohli had scored 57 runs off 49 balls, which brought India’s total to 151/7 after 20 overs; however, Pakistan openers Mohammed Rizwan (79 not out) and Babar Azam (68 not out) outshined the Kohli-led side with relative ease.
This star batter will be the focus of everyone’s attention as he looks to get back into form with a game-winning knock and possibly score his highly anticipated 71st international century. Since his last century at the international level, he has gone almost a thousand days without scoring one.
Since his last century in international competition, which took place in November 2019, Kohli has participated in a total of 27 Twenty20 Internationals. In this format, he has scored 858 runs at an average of 42.90 during his career. In this particular format, his greatest score is a 94*. Since his most recent century, he has scored eight fifty-point scores in this style.
Since his last century in international competition, he has played in 68 international matches across all formats, and he has scored 2,554 runs across all formats combined in 82 innings at an average of 34.05 runs per innings. In all media, he has reached the half-century mark 24 times.
For Virat, the year 2022 in especially has been quite challenging.
Virat has only participated in four Twenty20 Internationals for his team so far in 2018, during which he has scored 81 runs at a below-average average of 20.25. In this year’s competition, his best score in this style is a 52.
This year, he has played for India in a total of sixteen matches across all formats; however, he has only been able to score 476 runs throughout his 19 innings, which puts his average well below par at 25.05. Only four scores in the fifty-point range have resulted from his bat, with 79 being his greatest score.
