Asia Cup 2022: Virat Kohli ends drought with his maiden T20 international ton | Cricket News

DUBAI: Virat Kohli hit his first international century since November 2019 with his first ton of T20s for India as his side went up 212-2 against Afghanistan in the Asian Cup on Thursday.
The star batsman remained unbeaten on 122 of 61 deliveries with 12 fours and two sixes after India were batted in their final Super Four match after being knocked out of the tournament.

Kohli, 33, hit a bowler four and a six out of rhythm Farid Ahmad to hit his first Indian tonne in almost three years – his last hundred coming in a test against Bangladesh.


His previous record in 103 T20I was 94 since his debut in 2010.

He put on an opening stand of 119 with KL Rahul, who made 62, to lay the foundation for the mammoth total as the Afghan bowlers struggled on their second consecutive day on the field.
Kohli recorded his third score of over 50 in the event, which serves as preparation for the T20 World Cup in October-November in Australia.
Kohli also achieved 27 Tests and 43 ODI centuries in a glittering career.
