Kohli slams 39th ODI ton, reaches another milestone
There is something about the Adelaide Oval that brings the best out of Indian captain Virat Kohli.
The scene of Kohli’s maiden Test century and several landmark knocks, Kohli was once again peerless as he batted with meticulous attention to detail in another big chase, on his way to bringing up his 39th one-day international century.
Kohli couldn’t take his team home but his effort gave India a chance to make a comeback into the series.
The century was also Kohli’s 64th in international cricket, which takes him one ahead of Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara and into the third spot behind former Australian captain Ricky Ponting (71) and the legendary Sachin Tendulkar (100).
