Cricket News: Twitter reactions to Virat Kohli’s 28th Test century | Twitter reactions: Virat Kohli breaks drought to reach 28th Test ton

Virat Kohli broke his century drought in Test cricket dating back to November 2019, after notching up his 28th century in the Ahmedabad clash against Australia. It was a near chanceless knock from the classy number four, who batted Australia out of the game along with Axar Patel after Shubman Gill’s brilliant century.

Kohli came into the fourth Test with an average sitting in only the 20s for this series. However, he looked in decent touch throughout the previous three Tests, ultimately undone by some good bowling often against the run of play on tricky batting pitches. There were no such issues at Ahmedabad, with Kohli grinding down the Australian attack on what was still a flat surface by the third session of day four.

The anticipation in the crowd with Kohli on 99 shows the kind of impact he’s had in his great career. Fans all around the stadium were on their feet awaiting the milestone, before a huge roar bellowed once Kohli knocked yet another off-spinning delivery through the legside.

After the long wait for his 71st international century – achieved in the Asia Cup against Afghanistan last year – Kohli has since scored two ODI centuries and one in Tests. With a huge year ahead for India – including an ODI World Cup and possible World Test Championship Final – fans will be very happy to see Kohli back in the big runs.

In what came as no surprise, fans and pundits were full of praise for Virat. “YES VIRAT! There was never any doubt. Ok, there was some doubt. Quite a lot actually. But I’m glad it’s happened. Love him or loathe him, he’s the most compelling player to watch and the biggest superstar in world cricket,” one tweet read.

Below are some the reactions to Virat Kohli’s century.
