Virat Kohli's wait for his next international hundred continues as he has been dismissed for 56 in the first ODI against England in Pune. The 32-year-old was looking in ominous touch and was understandably distraught as he walked off the field.
The Indian skipper last scored an international hundred in November 2019 against Bangladesh in India's first-ever pink-ball Test. Although Kohli claims that he doesn't think much about individual milestones, his long century drought has worried all Indian fans.
Fans on Twitter react to Virat Kohli missing out on a hundred again
Fans on Twitter expressed their disappointment over Virat Kohli failing to reach the three-figure mark again. But some supporters also hailed the Indian captain for continuing his sublime touch.
Here is what they had to say:
For the first time in his career, Virat Kohli registered two consecutive ducks in international cricket coming into the second T20I against England. However, three 70-plus scores in the next four games saw him named as the Player of the Series.
The 32-year-old managed to bring that form into the ODI series as well. Just when Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan had done all the hard work of seeing off the new-ball burst, Ben Stokes dismissed the former for 28.
Virat Kohli ensured he raised the tempo of the Indian innings as soon as he was at the crease. His fluent strokeplay allowed Dhawan to play himself in and gradually, runs started flowing from both ends.
However, just when India looked set to go well past the 300-run mark, 4 wickets fell in the space of just 36 runs. It is now down to the experienced KL Rahul and the debutant Krunal Pandya to fight it out and help the hosts post a competitive total.
