Can Virat Kohli end century drought?-

As things stand, Virat Kohli hasn’t scored a hundred since November 2019 and will try to find his mojo and score a hundred. Virat looked energized and full of confidence as he trained with the team, after returning back to the Indian fold.

Virat was rested for the home series against South Africa and had a poor run in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Virat will now be hoping to make a good impact on the Indian team as they prepare for the only Test match.

On the flip side Virat can also reach 2000 Test runs, he is currently on 1960 runs and needs 40 more to reach the landmark against England.
