Precisely, Virat Kohli last scored a century in the Test match that started on 22nd November 2019 against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens. It was a day-night Test game that India won convincingly after the Bangladeshi’s were bowled out for 106 in the first innings. Virat scored 136 runs in that game.
