But Kohli’s agonising wait of scoring a hundred in the Test cricket continues with the Indian batter’s last ton coming in November 2019 against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens.
Kohli also failed to make an impact in the ongoing Test series against Australia with the scores of 12, 44 and 20 so far in the first two Tests.
