5) Against Sri Lanka (2023) in Thiruvananthapuram
Mann! what a match it was. In fact, it was not even a match but a one-sided massacre. Sorry if I got overboard but it was really a complete win. And What to say about the Indian batting inning. First Shubman Gill with a Hundred (116 in 97) and after that came Virat Kohli’s 74th Century.
But this inning didn’t end there, it kept on going and built a good partnership with Shreyash Iyer and cross the team score of 350 runs. As the Wickets were falling quickly after Shubman Gill’s wicket yet King Kohli was standing tall and with that aggressive batting he made the fastest 150 runs in his career.
He made 166 runs in that inning without losing his wicket in 11o balls while hitting 13 fours and 8 sixes. This was definitely an Inning to watch and admire. That’s King Kohli for you.
