Virat Kohli on Sunday ended a 1,205-day drought for a Test century as the former India captain slammed his 28th ton in the format. Kohli achieved the feat on Day 4 of the ongoing fourth Test against Australia, sparking wild celebrations at the world’s biggest cricket stadium in Ahmedabad. Kohli, who last scored a Test century on November 22, 2019 during a day-night Test against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, took 241 deliveries to reach triple figures. As soon as Kohli reached the landmark, netizens took to Twitter and hailed the star batter.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

“This is Virat Kohli the batter. Has the power and the tools, and knows when to use what. Well played,” ex-India batter Wasim Jaffer captioned a meme on Twitter.

“Welcome back Virat Kohli. This is a test century well received in many quarters. No 28,” West Indies great Ian Bishop tweeted.

“Well played @imVkohli this 28th test Century came after 41 innings,” former India pacer Munaf Patel posted on Twitter.

Here are some of the fan reactions:

Having already ended his century drought in ODI cricket last year, Kohli finally buried the ghosts of his torrid run in Tests with a century that he will remember for a long time.

This is also Kohli’s 8th Test century against Australia, tying Gavaskar for the joint second-most tons by an Indian player against the Aussies, only behind Sachin Tendulkar in the list.
