During the third and final game of the recently ended bilateral series between India and Bangladesh, former Indian captain Virat Kohli performed the ideal supporting role to an on-song Ishan Kishan. At the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, batting legend Virat Kohli produced a brilliant performance against the Litton Das-led team to end his century drought in One Day International (ODI) cricket on Sunday. Team India easily defeated the hosts.

Kohli scored his 72nd international century to overtake famous cricketer Ricky Ponting on an exclusive list, while Indian opener Kishan hammered a record-breaking double century in the third ODI. India reached a massive total of 409-8 in the 50-over match because of the bat mastery of Kohli and the star power of Kishan. In the third ODI at Chattogram, Kohli and Kishan’s outstanding batting performance led an Indian team without Rohit Sharma to a comfortable victory against Bangladesh.

Former Indian cricketer Ajit Agarkar spoke about Kohli’s batting masterclass on Sony Sports and made notice of Bangladesh captain Das. “I believe that he benefited much from Ishan Kishan’s innings. Considering how seldom such catches are lost in international cricket, he will undoubtedly send Litton Das something. However, you must also keep in mind that he made a fantastic catch in the first game. Today, he could take his time. He had the time since an early wicket had been lost. The pitch continued to become better. There is no question that it was difficult at first, but Ishan Kishan had taken the strain off of him, therefore the fluidity came later “explained Agarkar.

When it comes to the exclusive list of players with the most international hundreds, Kohli is second only to Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, according to former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja. The only hitter with 100 international hundreds is former Indian captain Tendulkar. In all forms, Kohli has 72 international tonnes to his credit. “Only Sachin Tendulkar (God) is in the lead. This is a goal that cannot be met in a single day. A triple century or the feat accomplished by Ishan Kishan in a single day are both impressive, but to hit 72 centuries is incredible. His name is constancy, “said Jadeja.

The second wicket stand between Kohli and Kishan, which totaled 290 runs, was also the seventh-highest partnership in ODI history. The third ODI saw India defeat Bangladesh by a whopping 227 runs thanks to the former Indian captain’s 113 off 91 and the match-winning 210 off 113. Kishan’s superb batting performance earned him the title of Player of the Match.
