Virat Kohli is one of the greatest batsmen in the history of ODI cricket history as he just scored the 74th hundred of his career. He has completed his 45th ODI hundred as he has continued his dominance against Srilanka. He always plays well against Sri Lanka.
He played a knock of 166 runs in just 110 balls in which he smashed 13 fours and 8 sixes. He was looking in very good touch and played shots around the park. He completed his hundred in just 85 balls which were his 2nd century in just 3 matches. He scored 2 centuries in this ODI series.
He played a shot like Mahi:
He has a lot of respect for the ex-captain of the Indian cricket team MS Dhoni. All the fans know that he loves Mahi a lot and we have seen many moments like that in the past. We have seen the same respectful incident in the third ODI match as well.
He played a shot like Mahi in the 44th over of the match when Kasun Rajitha was bowling. Virat Kohli hits the ball on the mid-wicket for a huge 97 meters distance. He then yelled at his non-striker partner Shreyas Iyer and said “Mahi shot”. Indian fans are loving it a lot.
India registered a historic win:
India won the last ODI match of the series by a huge margin of 317 runs which is the biggest victory in ODI cricket history. They broke the record of the New Zealand team as they won the match against Ireland by 290 runs. India first scored 390 runs in their given 50 overs while the Indian bowlers bundled out Srilanka for just 73 runs.
