IND vs BAN: Return of Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli will return to the team on the Bangladesh tour after the T20 World Cup. The biggest record in front of King Kohli on the tour of Bangladesh is the record of centuries in international cricket. At present, Kohli has 71 international centuries to his name, and he is standing at par with Ricky Ponting in this case. On the tour of Bangladesh, Virat Kohli will have 3 ODIs and 2 Test matches to break this record. If he manages to do so, he will reach number two in the list of centuries after Sachin Tendulkar.

Kohli, who wasn’t in his finest shape for a long, has now found his mojo again. He concluded Asia Cup 2022 as the second-highest run scorer with 276 runs from five innings, including a century against Afghanistan. It was his 71st century in international cricket and his first-ever T20I century.

Then, the legendary batter finished with 296 runs from six games, including four half-centuries, to become the T20 World Cup 2022’s leading scorer in Australia. And now in the upcoming Bangladesh series, he will attempt to surpass Ricky Ponting’s number by recording his 72nd international 100.
