Virat Kohli scored the first century of his T20 career against Afghanistan. This was the 71st century of his career. Now the former Pakistan cricketer has given a big statement about Virat Kohli. Know what he said about Kohli?
Virat Kohli scored his last century on 23 November 2019. After that, he could never score an international century. He was facing criticism due to his poor form. Many veterans were talking about different things. Virat Kohli ended the drought of centuries in the match against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup. He scored the first century of his T20 career. He played an unbeaten inning of 122 runs. Virat scored the 71st century of his career. Virat Kohli gave a befitting reply to his critics this time. Well, Virat has got 71 centuries and Sachin Tendulkar has a total of 100 centuries. Now the fans are thinking the same thing that Virat will break Sachin's record in the coming time. Meanwhile, Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has given a big statement on his YouTube channel.
Shoaib Akhtar gave a big statement saying, Virat Kohli, you have always told the truth. Good things will happen to you. Remember that these 29 centuries to come by you will take away your life. These centuries will keep you squeezed. I say don't give up because you will be the greatest in the end. These 29 centuries will make you great going ahead. I say push yourself and keep moving forward. I am saying this because he took more than 1000 days to score his 71st century. I hope he continues to play like this.
Kohli scored 276 runs in five matches in the Asia Cup. He scored two half-centuries and one century. Team India did not perform well in the Asia Cup but Virat Kohli has returned to form. He is currently the highest run-scorer in the Asia Cup.
By the way, let us tell you that in between scoring 70 to 71 centuries, Virat played a total of 72 matches. He played matches by mixing these three formats. Virat scored 26 half-centuries during this period but he could not score any century. Now Virat is back in form. Hopefully runs will continue to come off his bat.
