3. 90* vs Australia
In 2016, Virat Kohli was becoming the best batsman in the world across all format. It all started with the white ball Australia tour in January when he looked invincible as he scored runs at will without breaking a sweat. On 26 January 2016, Kohli gave all the Indians a perfect Republic Day gift when he scored a match-winning 90 in the first T20I of the series.
From the very first ball of his knock, Kohli meant business and dominated all Australian bowlers at a packed house at Adelaide. He unleashed his wide array of strokes from the cover drive, pull shots and flick as India posted a mammoth total of 188 runs. Kohli scored 99 in 55 balls and his knock included 9 boundaries and 2 sixes which commenced a memorable year for Kohli with the bat.
