After a successful Asian Cup, where he scored two half-centuries and a ton, Virat Kohli must be a relieved man. Kohli hit 12 fours and six sixes on his way to score a 61-ball 122* against Afghanistan. He had a success rate of 200.00. Before this ton, Kohli last hit the triple digit in November 2019 against Bangladesh. In recent months, Kohli has been criticized for his meager patch, but his Asian Cup performance has silenced all opponents.
After the match against Afghanistan, Kohli dedicated his ton to wife Anushka and daughter Vamika. “And I also kissed my ring during the celebration. You see me standing here because of all the things that have been put into perspective by one person, who has stood by me through all these difficult times – that is Anushka. This hundred is dedicated to her and also to our little daughter Vamika,” he said.
Now Anushka has posted a photo with Virat in a roadside cafe along with a heart emoticon.
Virat Kohli also said the break he took after the Tour of England helped him a lot. “The time I was not in the game taught me a lot. When I came back I wasn’t desperate. Six weeks off, I was refreshed. I realized how tired I was. Competitiveness didn’t allow it, but this one break let me enjoy the game again,” Kohli said.
