Kohli Scores An International Century After 1020 Days, Dedicates Knock To Anushka & Vamika
Dubai: It was a match of no consequence for Team India as far as their fortunes in the Asia Cup was concerned.
In a Super 4 clash against another out-of-contention team Afghanistan on Thursday evening, Team India produced their best riding on Virat Kohli’s brutal unbeaten century – his first international hundred after 1020 days, which came in a Test match against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens in November 2019.
Opening the innings as skipper Rohit Sharma took a break, Kohli smashed 122 not out off just 61 balls for a strike rate of 200, hitting 12 fours and 6 sixes. It was his maiden hundred in T20 Internationals, and 71st in international cricket. He has 27 tons in Tests and 43 in ODIs.
The former India captain dedicated his special knock to wife Anushka Sharma and daughter Vamika.
“I am standing here because of one person – my wife Anushka (Sharma)… she has stood by me all this while… this one is for Anushka and our daughter Vamika,” Kohli said after guiding India to an imposing total of 212/2 in 20 overs.
