Virat Kohli scored his 75th international century on February 20, 2023, in the fourth and final Test match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. He scored 241 runs off 328 balls in 433 minutes, with 22 fours and a six. It was his first Test century since November 2019, and it helped India to a massive first innings total of 571-7 declared.

Kohli’s innings was a masterclass in batting. He combined his trademark aggression with a solid defense to keep the Australian bowlers at bay. He was particularly impressive against the short-pitched bowling of Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood.

Kohli is now only one century away from breaking Tendulkar’s all-time record of 100 international centuries.

In the lead-up to the match, Kohli had faced a lot of criticism after he had gone 41 innings without scoring a century in any format. However, he silenced his critics with a brilliant innings that will be remembered for years to come. Kohli’s 75th century is a testament to his skill, determination, and mental toughness. He is one of the greatest batsmen of all time, and he is still only 34 years old. It will be exciting to see what he can achieve in the years to come.
