Rahat Indori’s famous lion is-I am lucky now, I am not full yet, he is thinking me to be dead, tell him I am not dead. On Thursday, when Virat Kohli scored the 71st century of his career after 1020 days at the Dubai Cricket Stadium, then some similar thoughts must be coming in his mind. When Virat completed his century by sending Fareed Malik’s ball for six runs over deep-midwicket, then the whole of India was happy to forget the sorrow of being out of the Asia Cup.
The wait for the 71st century from the 70th century was 72 matches. He scored 26 half-centuries during this period. After this the drought of his centuries ended. In this bad phase, Virat Kohli could not even open his account 9 times. However, Virat’s critics did not remain silent even after this century and started saying that a century has come against Afghanistan. The century has come after being out of the Asia Cup. It doesn’t make any sense. This is a pointless century. Whatever he wants to say now, but he cannot erase Virat’s 71st century from the record book.
