After a fine time, we finally saw the headlines, which wrote Virat Kohli scored a century for the Indian National Cricket Team. He was constantly getting those 70’s and 80’s during the ICC World Cup 2019 but unfortunately, failed to get the three-digit figure. He finally got that against Windies on Sunday night. Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar reveals how important was that century for the Indian skipper.
In the World Cup, he smashed five consecutive fifties but failed to convert it into centuries. Heading into the second ODI at Port of Spain, Kohli’s last ton had come five months ago against Australia in Ranchi.
However, Kohli overcame the conditions and blasted his 42nd century to help India reach a good total. He broke plenty of records in the process, going past Sourav Ganguly‘s tally of 11363 runs in ODIs and also becoming the first player in history to score 2000 runs and hit 200 fours against the West Indies.
Virat Kohli’s expression would say it – Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar lauded skipper Virat Kohli, saying the captain badly wanted to score a century. His remarks come after Kohli’s knock of 120 runs in the match.
“From Virat’s expression you could see that he badly wanted to score a hundred not because he was out form but because he was getting out in the 70s and 80s and he’s always known for scoring big runs. The wicket wasn’t easy, when Virat came back to the dressing room he said after the ball gets old it’s not easy to score runs,” Bhuvneshwar said.
Following the conclusion of second ODI, both the teams will remain in Trinidad for the final match of the series to be played on Wednesday. With the hosts having an opportunity to level the contest while the Men in Blue will aim for another commanding performance to seal the three-match rubber.
As far as the second ODI is concerned, Virat Kohli was helped by Shreyas Iyer, who batted brilliantly in the middle overs. The duo helped India reach a decent total on the board, which proved very high for West Indies. In the bowling department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the star.
