Virat Kohli century in Ranchi

It was an emotional day at the JSCA stadium in Ranchi on Friday (March 8).

On a day when veteran MS Dhoni may have played his last international game on his home ground, the Men in Blue wore camouflage caps as a mark of respect for the Indian Armed Forces.


Unfortunately, the result of India’s third ODI against Australia went against the hosts’ favour.

After Usman Khawaja’s 104 powered Australia to post 313 for 5 on the board, India managed to put 281 in 48.2 overs, that too solely because of captain Virat Kohli’s 41st ODI century.

Kohli smashed a 95 ball 123 but lacked adequate support from the other end as Australia kept the five-match ODI series alive going into the fourth game in Chandigarh on March 10.

Kohli’s knock was laced with 16 fours and a six, he scored his first 50 off 52 balls and the next 50 off just 33 balls. En route to his hundred, Kohli also became the fastest batsman to complete 4,000 ODI runs as captain.
