Virat Kohli Scores Centuries Only On Dead Rubbers- Aakash Chopra. On January 15, India defeated Sri Lanka by a record 317 runs in the third and final one-day international of the three-match series at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram, led by an undefeated century from former Indian captain Virat Kohli. Aakash Chopra, a former Indian cricketer, praised Virat Kohli’s batting and claimed that he took advantage of Sri Lanka’s banal bowling attack.
Virat Kohli led the hosts to a massive total of 390 runs with an unbeaten 166 runs off just 110 balls, including 13 fours and 8 sixes. The right-handed batsman now only trails Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 tonnes by three runs after scoring his 46th ODI century. In the final four innings of the 50-over format, he scored three hundreds. For a total of 73 runs, bowlers bowled out the Sri Lankan hitters.
Aakash Chopra Gives Massive Remark On Virat Kohli
Aakash Chopra lauded Virat Kohli and claimed that the run machine is back in form in a video posted on his YouTube channel. The former India opener thinks the batting has put his detractors to rest and is back to his best.
“Virat Kohli comes to bat at No. 3. A hundred in the first match in Guwahati and a hundred in Thiruvanthapuram. Virat Kohli is the Player of the Match and the Player of the Series. Virat the run-machine Kohli is back. Saamne wali bowling thi sadharan, to Kohli ne kiya Virat roop dhaaran,” Aakash Chopra said.
“I was reading a Pakistani handle that said that he scores only in dead rubbers, so did someone else score a century in the first match? It said it was an extremely flat pitch – the opposition team scored 70 in all. Virat Kohli is back, looks absolutely sensational, back to his very best. He actually owns this format,” he added.
Shubman Gill’s batting was lauded by Aakash Chopra, who said that he had plenty of grace and time. Ishan Kishan would most likely bat in the middle order during the next ODI series against New Zealand, according to the former cricketer-turned-commentator.
“Shubman Gill has struck another century, his second in ODI cricket. Whenever you see him play, it seems he is the future of Indian cricket. The way Shubman plays, the class and the flow with which he plays, he has got a lot of grace and time,” Chopra said.

“That is why Ishan Kishan is going to remain out for now. You can’t really help it, although it might have come to their (team management’s) mind that they could have played Ishan in this match because in the next series, which is about to start, KL Rahul will not be there and Ishan Kishan will play, but as a middle-order batter,” he added.
Three one-day internationals (ODIs) and as many twenty-minute internationals (T20Is) will be played in India versus New Zealand. In the 50-over format, the team’s regular captain Rohit Sharma will captain, while Hardik Pandya will captain in the shorter version.
