Virat Kohli achieved a massive landmark last week as he played his 100th Test for Team India during the 1st Test against Sri Lanka at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. It was a special moment for the former India skipper as he walked out to bat in the first innings. Kohli, who has not scored a century in over two years in any format, though, failed to reach the triple figures as he was dismissed by Lasith Embuldeniya on a score of 45.
Kohli’s fans have been eagerly waiting for him to score his 71st ton in international cricket.
During the ongoing Test between Pakistan and Australia in Rawalpindi, a fan had a special message to the 33-year-old.
The fan was seen holding a poster of Kohli, urging him to score his 71st century in Pakistan.
“We want your 71st century in Pakistan,” the placard read.

With just one day remaining in the match, the Rawalpindi Test is heading for a draw.
At stumps on Day 4, Australia were 449/7, trailing Pakistan by 27 runs.
Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne missed out their respective centuries after being dismissed on 97 and 90.
Steve Smith also played a fine knock 78 before he was dismissed by the star of the day, Nauman Ali, who took a four-wicket haul.
Earlier, Pakistan had posted a total of 476//4d, thanks to Azhar Ali and Imam-ul-Haq’s marathon knocks of 185 and 157, respectively.
