Virat Kohli International Centuries

The wand of India’s batting excellence has witnessed a smooth transition over the last five decades. Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar and then Virat Kohli headlined this movement. Interestingly, Tendulkar was Gavaskar’s fan, and equally, he remains Kohli’s idol.

If Gavaskar set the benchmarks for Tendulkar to scale, the latter pushed the envelope both in the longer version and ODIs and provided the motivation for Kohli to launch a respectful pursuit. Let’s look at Virat Kohli’s 80 international centuries.
