Kohli smashed a fine 104 in India s <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-australia-2018-2nd-odi-virat-kohli-ms-dhoni-cancel-out-shaun-marsh-hundred-as-india-level-series-791468">series-levelling six-wicket win</a> in the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/india-in-australia-2018-200901/live-scores/india-vs-australia-live-cricket-score-2nd-odi-match-186737-summary.html">second ODI against Australia</a> on Tuesday.

He has now 64 international centuries, third most after <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/sachin-tendulkar/">Sachin Tendulkar</a>'s 100 tons and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ricky-ponting/">Ricky Ponting</a>'s 71. <p></p> <p></p>"Virat Kohli's consistency is very good. If he stays fit, he will reach the 100-century mark. He is way ahead of many great players as far as his consistency is concerned. He is a great player and India have hardly lost whenever he has scored a century," Azahruddin was quoted as saying by <em>India Today</em> on Tuesday.

Unfortunately, in the previous match we lost three early wickets. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/rohit-sharma/">Rohit Sharma</a> did score a century, but we lost. But today, Virat Kohli batted extremely well and MS Dhoni too played well. Dhoni even got tired in the end but he kept his wicket intact. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/dinesh-karthik/">Dinesh Karthik</a> also batted well. Overall, India's performance was very good," Azhar said.

I think that was reason Dhoni played slow innings in the first ODI but today he batted well. It was a match-winning knock."
