Virat Kohli slammed his 25th Test century and his seventh against Australia on Sunday to help India cross the 200-run mark on Day 3 of the second Test at the Optus Stadium in Perth. The Indian skipper hit Aussie pacer Mitchell Starc for a boundary in the second delivery of the 81st over to bring up his hundred in 214 deliveries.

Kohli celebrated his 100 in style as he removed his helmet, pointed at his bat and moved his fingers in a manner that suggested: ‘let the bat do the talking’. With his sixth Test century in Australia and seventh against the opponents, Kohli also equalled Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most Test centuries by an Indian Down Under.

Starting the day on 82 not out, the 30-year-old captain took five overs to reach the three-figure mark. Kohli needed just 127 innings to reach 25 Test centuries. Only Australian legend Don Bradman (68) had taken fewer innings to get to the landmark.

Many cricketing legends lauded his knock with special combination o words including Sachin Tendulkar.

But what tops this all is England’s former legendary cricketer Kevin Pietersen’s words. In his official twitter account the right hand batsman wrote “ANOTHER 100 for today…he’s making every single one of us that batted before him in international cricket, look like schoolboys! So proud of you, dude!”
