Virat Kohli scored a hundred in the Ahmedabad game between India and Australia. There were a lot of reactions on social media. On that note, here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Virat Kohli scores a century in the Test match against Australia.
Virat Kohli scores a century in the Test match against Australia
It has been a long time coming for Virat Kohli. The former Indian skipper had waited for close to three years for a century in international cricket. However, in the Asia Cup 2022, he got the monkey off the back with a splendid century against Afghanistan. Further, Virat made hundreds in a few ODI encounters to return to form.
However, in the Tests, the fans were still waiting for that century by Virat Kohli. It has been more than three years since Virat got a three-figure mark in the red-ball format. Against Australia, it was also a much-needed knock by Virat. India’s batting department has been under pressure for the past few months. It was necessary for them, especially Virat, to leave an impression. Considering the WTC final will be happening in a few months, it was important for Virat to find form. Shreyas Iyer also had issues and was unable to come out to bat. Considering this and the importance of India not losing this encounter, it was a stunning knock by Virat Kohli.
Twitter reacts to Virat’s century
Naturally, a lot of people were happy with Virat’s hundred. There were many fans of Indian cricket who were waiting for this. The likes of Joe Root from the Fab 4 have been scoring centuries at will but Virat was missing out. Now that Virat also has got a hundred, it won’t be a surprise if he scores a few more in the next few tournaments. Here is how Twitter reacted to Virat’s century:
The smile on the face is everything.
