Virat Kohli broke into the international scene in 2008 after leading the U-19 team to the ICC U-19 World Cup victory. Impressed with his performance in the white-ball format, he got the place in the Test team in 2011. Now, he has become one of the best red-ball players. He also took Team India to No.1 position in the ICC Test ranking after leading the team to several victories in foreign lands.
After his Test debut, several cricketers have also entered the game. Some have been equally successful like him while some could not cement their place in the team. Here, in this article, we have discussed five players who have scored the most number of Test centuries since Virat Kohli played his maiden Test.
Top 5 batsmen Who Scored Most Centuries Since Virat Kohli’s Test Debut
5. Cheteshwar Pujara – 18 centuries
Cheteshwar Pujara is the old-school player and stands different from his peers because of his defensive tactics. He can stand for the whole day in the field, testing the patience of opposition bowlers. His innings against Australia in the memorable Test series win last year showed his temperament and resilience to play the extended format of the game.
Since Virat Kohli made the Test debut in 2011, Pujara has played 74 Test matches and scored 5733 runs, including 18 centuries.
