“23 Tests Since Virat Kohli Scored A Century,” Tweets Iceland Cricket. Fans Don’t Like It | Cricket News

Virat Kohli, after a couple of years when he could not score a ton, is back among run in the white ball formats. Since the 2022 Asia Cup, Kohli has been scoring well in limited overs cricket. However, the same cannot be said for the Test format. He has not scored a half-century in his last 13 Test innings. His scores in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy reads – 44, 20 and 12. The former Indian cricket team skipper’s last Test ton came against Bangladesh in November, 2019. Iceland Cricket highlighted this aspect in a tweet recently.

“This statistic won’t please many of our Indian fans, but it is now 23 Tests since Virat Kohli scored a century, which was back in 2019. How long is too long?” Iceland Cricket wrote in the tweet.

The tweet did not go down well Kohli’s fans.

Recently, Kohli scaled another historic milestone in his career, becoming the fastest batter to score 25,000 runs in international cricket. He did so on Day 3 of the second Test against Australia in New Delhi. In the process, Kohli surpassed his idol and the Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar, who had reached the landmark in 577 matches. Virat, on the other hand, did so in 549 matches. Following Virat and Sachin are the likes of Ricky Ponting (588), Jacques Kallis (594), Kumar Sangakkara (608) and Mahela Jayawardene (701).
