Indian captain Virat Kohli added another feather to his cap as he slammed his 50th international ton on Monday.
The Delhi lad achieved the feat on the final day of the first Test match against Sri Lanka.
Batting on 98, Kohli charged down the wicket to slam Sri Lankan pacer Suranga Lakmal for a six over extra covers to reach the milestone.

Prior to the first Test, Kohli had 32 ODI centuries to his name, along with 17 tons in Test cricket.
Former and current cricketers were also waiting with eagerness for King Kohli to finish his first century at the iconic Eden Gardens and congratulated him as he reached the milestone.
Here are some of the best tweets from the cricket fraternity for Virat Kohli:

Top drawer century from @imVkohli. Held the side together when there was danger and just so easily changed style and attacked.
