IND vs AUS 2023: Twitter goes wild as Virat Kohli ends his three-year Test century drought with a ton in Ahmedabad


Indian superstar Virat Kohli finally ended his Test century drought when he reached the triple-figure score on Day 4 of the ongoing fourth and final Test against Australia in Ahmedabad.

Kohli lit up the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium by smashing his first century in the longest format since 2019 when he had slammed a ton against Bangladesh. Kohli desperately needed this hundred, and it didn’t come easy as it was the second slowest ton in terms of balls faced for the former India skipper. Kohli took 41 innings to reach his 28th Test ton.

Most innings between two Test hundreds for Virat Kohli:

  • 41 innings between 27th & 28th 100s*
  • 11 innings between 11th & 12th 100s
  • 10 innings between 6th & 7th 100s
  • 10 innings between 25th & 26th 100s

It was also the 16th Test ton for Kohli against Australia. The record for most number of centuries against the Aussies  is currently held by Sachin Tendulkar.

Most international hundreds versus an opponent:

  • 20 – Sachin Tendulkar vs Australia
  • 19 – Don Bradman vs England
  • 17 – Sachin Tendulkar vs Sri Lanka
  • 16 – Virat Kohli vs Australia*
  • 16 –-Virat Kohli vs Sri Lanka

India will be looking to win this match and finish the series 3-1 in order to qualify for the World Test Championship (WTC) final. If they lose this game and Sri Lanka win their ongoing series against New Zealand 2-0, then the Islanders will qualify for the WTC final. Australia have already booked their place for the summit clash.
