Virat Kohli celebrates in a special way after ending a drought that had lasted 1021 days.
Virat Kohli, who recently scored his 71st century in international play and first since November 2019, was lavishly feted at the Asia Cup.
The wait was over after 1021 days. One of India’s all-time leading cricket scorers, Virat Kohli, was unable to register a century at the time. Kohli scored 70 tons in international cricket before that dry spell. After a protracted wait, the 71st has arrived. Therefore, Kohli’s 122* off just 61 balls against Afghanistan on Thursday in the Asia Cup was the highest individual T20I score for India. In 2017, he outperformed Rohit Sharma, who scored 118 runs against Sri Lanka in Indore. Additionally, he matched Ricky Ponting’s record of 71 global centuries. Virat Kohli and Ricky Ponting are the only players to have amassed more tons in international cricket than Sachin Tendulkar (100 tons).
Virat Kohli’s celebration following his first century in T20Is was distinctive.
Watching Virat Kohli celebrate after getting India’s 71st century is entertaining.
A long wait finally comes to an end.

As Virat Kohli removed his helmet, everyone could see the relief on his face. He also grinned broadly.
He raised his bat to the adoring crowd in his dressing room and kissed his wedding band.
Virat Kohli stated that he had handed his complete ton to his wife Anushka and kid Vamika during his celebration.
He added, “This hundred is also dedicated to our beautiful daughter Vamika.” I then gave my ring a kiss in jubilation. I’m standing here because one person stood by me during all of these terrible events, which helped put everything in perspective.
