Virat Kohli finally ended a long wait as he brought his 71st international century during India’s final Super 4 clash of the Asia Cup 2022 against Afghanistan. Opening the innings for India, Kohli amassed 122 runs off just 61 deliveries to help the Men in Blue set a 213-run target for their opponents.

Kohli, who last scored an international century way back in 2019, showed glimpses of returning to form in the continental tournament. Barring the game against Sri Lanka, the right-handed batter played some decent knocks, including a couple of fifties.

Virat Kohli walked out to open the innings alongside stand-in skipper KL Rahul in the absence of Rohit Sharma. Kohli took some time to settle in. But once he got his eyes in, there was no stopping him as he notched up his maiden T20I century.

The former Indian captain played some delightful shots all around the park to bring up his 71st international hundred, ending an almost three-year wait. Riding on his batting masterclass, India accumulated 78 runs in the last five overs to post a staggering total of 212/2 in their 20 overs.

Virat Kohli remained unbeaten on 122 off 61 deliveries, with his knock studded with 12 boundaries and six maximums. This is also his highest score in the shortest format. Ffans went mad on social media as they eagerly awaited for this day to come.

Here are some of the reactions:
