Twitter erupts as Virat Kohli smashes record 35th ODI century

Posted On / /

Virat Kohli scored yet another century as India beat South Africa by 8 wickets in the sixth ODI on Friday.

Apart from his century, Kohli grabbed another record to his name by becoming the highest run-getter in a bilateral series surpassing his teammate Rohit Sharma who achieved the feat in 2013-14 against Australia after scoring 491 runs in the series.

Kohli while scoring his 35th ODI century in the sixth ODI went past the 500-run mark in the series. This is also the highest number of runs scored by a skipper in a bilateral series.

The century on Friday by Kohli was made off just 82 balls and with the help of 17 fours, including the four he hit to reach the three-figure mark. This was his third century of the series after he had made hundreds in the first and third match.

In terms of centuries made by captains in ODIs, he is now only behind former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting who has the most number of hundreds as a captain — 22. Kohli now has 13 centuries, same as AB de Villiers, who was captain of South Africa.
