Virat Kohli smashes brilliant ton against Sri Lanka at Hobart

In order to stay alive in the tri-series Down Under, India had to chase down around 320 inside 40 overs against Sri Lanka at Hobart.


At that point, Virat Kohli essayed one of the most remarkable tons in recent times. He fearlessly smashed the ball around the park and took on Lasith Malinga, one of the most feared limited-overs bowlers in world cricket. Kohli scored an unbeaten 133 from 86 balls.


In the end, the target was achieved with ease as India found new hope in the youngster. “Vir (Hindi for brave) at all times!” read Amul’s banner after the young Kohli massacred a Sri Lankan attack into submission at Hobart.
