Virat Kohli completed his return to form in a special way during the Asia Cup 2022. The holder of many world records scored his 71st international hundred, breaking a long chain of ordinary results, in the tournament’s last game.
He clobbered Afghanistan bowlers to all parts of the ground, hitting 12 fours and 6 sixes in his knock of 122 runs.
It was also his maiden T20I hundred, which came after 95 innings, a new world record in the game’s shortest format.
