Virat Kohli century

In India's final Asia Cup match, Virat Kohli finally returned to form and ended his century drought, smashing at a staggering strike rate of 200.

After 1020 days!

Kohli's form was dipping for almost three years. Hence, he took 1020 days to score the 71st century of his career after 1020 days and 83 innings.

While smashing his century, Kohli made many records, including a 15-year-old record.
