Wake up, score centuries, sleep, repeat. This has been Virat Kohli’s routine these days. After leaving everyone awestruck with his batting in Guwahati a couple of days ago, the master was once again at work in Vizag in the second ODI against the Windies. In the sapping heat, Kohli walked out to bat early in the fourth over and has once again led from the front to notch up his 37th ODI ton.
Even the pitch didn’t allow him to dictate the proceedings from the word go. The 29-year-old was quick to assess the pitch and took Ambati Rayudu with him to rebuild the innings.
Virat Kohli is breaking records for fun nowadays and he attained a few more to his name today. After reaching 30, he became the fastest to 4000 ODI runs at home and after scoring 51 more runs, the master also went past the legends to become the quickest to 10,000 runs in the format.
His innings had it all. The rotation of strike, a dropped catch and scintillating cover drives. Even Kohli would admit that this was not his fluent innings, but he managed to spend more time on the field finding ways of scoring runs. In the sultry heat, it was important from team’s point of view for someone to stay and play a big knock and Kohli, like always, put his hand up.
While Ambati Rayudu supported him so well. Virat Kohli just kept his calm and concentrated on manoeuvring the ball. The Caribbean bowlers kept tight lines to frustrate him but the determined Indian skipper wasn’t going to give his wicket away. Eventually, he got to his 37th century to make it a total of 61 international tons in his already illustrious career and soaked in all the applause from the vociferous crowd in Vizag.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Kohli’s yet another century:
Software update all the time. Virat Kohli has redefined what consistency means. Got his 9000th odi run just 11 innings ago and got his 10000 th today, to go with his 37th century. Enjoy the phenomena #KingKohli pic.twitter.com/OPhvIsBRDJ
