Virat Kohli smashed his 25th test century against australia which is being played at the Optus Stadium in Perth. The Indian run machine joined the list of his icon Sachin Tendulkar by hitting this century, which is his 6th century in Australia.
Virat did it in style by a classic straight drive off Michael Starc’s to score the ton.
Kohli celebrated his win with some swag. He took off his helmet, pointed towards his bat and indicated by his glove that he is letting his bat do the talk. And it has always been that way for Virat. He has always been a gentleman and respected his game.

This was the perfect way to silence his haters as many questioned Kohli’s ability after a disappointing opening Test with the bat at the Adelaide Oval.
The twist of turns took place when virat spectacular 123 came to an end when he edged Pat Cummins to a forward-diving Peter Handscomb at second slip. Whether Handscomb’s fingers were under the ball or touched the ground was not clear. this created a debate whether Viart was out or no.

However, the on-field umpired gave it an out. The third umpire too stood by the same decision. Kohli was not satisfied with the decision. Whether Kohli was out or no was debated among fans on social media leading to a lot of controversies.
Virat is now third in the list to score most number of centuries against Australia and we hope to see him break many such records.
