How Many Centuries Of Virat Kohli In All format

Virat Kohli has a legitimate claim to the title of the best batsman in cricket today The legendary cricketer is only the third Indian batter, behind Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid, to surpass 20,000 runs in international play with 22286 runs so far. 

The Indian captain, Virat Kohli, is a batting titan who has made bowlers’ lives miserable throughout the world over his more than a ten-year international career.

With 70 hundred under his belt, Kohli is third on the list of batsmen with the most centuries in international cricket. 

He will overtake Ricky Ponting’s record of 71 centuries and move into second place if he adds two more hundreds.

Ponting needed 668 international innings to make 71 centuries, but Kohli only needed 468 innings to reach that mark. 

With a staggering 100 international hundreds to his credit, the legendary Sachin Tendulkar holds the top slot. Virat Kohli has hit 27 centuries in test cricket, compared to 43 hundred in ODIs.

The 32-year-old has produced some incredible ODI innings. He helped India chase down a difficult mark of 321 in just 36.4 overs in 2012 against Sri Lanka at Hobart with a blistering 133* off just 86 balls.

The 183 against Pakistan at the 2012 Asia Cup was another gem from the master’s willow of one-day international cricket.

Virat Kohli, who entered the game with the score at 0/1, immediately launched a merciless attack on the opposition, scoring an incredible 183 off 148 balls, aiding India in achieving its goal of 330 with 13 balls remaining.

In Tests, Virat Kohli has played multiple game-winning strokes. Virat Kohli has also ignited the stage in the Test arena. The batting titan has the most double centuries (7), in Test cricket, of any Indian batsman. 

Some of Kohli’s many beautiful shots in the whites stood out because of the poise and power he displayed in the middle.

The 254* that he scored against South Africa in 2019 will go down as one of the most spectacular innings by an Indian batsman in home Test matches. 

The batting titan from Delhi faced 336 pitches and struck an undefeated 254 to help India record a total of 601 runs.

The giant batsman, who was born in Delhi, faced 336 pitches and hit an undefeated 254 to help India record a total of 601 runs, thrashing the Proteas by an innings and 137 runs.

Another Virat Kohli feat that will live on in our memories is the 235 against England in 2016 at Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium. 

James Anderson, Ben Stokes, and Adil Rashid made up England’s bowling attack when Kohli entered the game with the score at 146/2. 

Kohli overcame them to score a miraculous double century. He used the willow to great effect, allowing India to destroy England by an innings and 36 runs.

The Indian captain will be eager to go out and rack up some huge scores now that England is returning to Indian shores.
