List of Virat Kohli Test Centuries (Complete Stats)

Virat Kohli in Test cricket is a revelation for Indian cricket. His capability to rain in runs all over the world against threatening bowling attacks made him stand apart from the other Indian stalwarts. If there is one player who can fill up the mighty shoes of Sachin Tendulkar, it is him.

The master batsman’s fight-back knock of 119 in Johannesburg against the firing trio of Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel and Vernon Philander, rememberable 105 in Wellington, followed by a controvertible twin centuries in Adelaide during his early Test days made him look the fitting replacement for the retired Sachin Tendulkar. Allan Donald, the then bowling coach of South Africa, said Virat’s Johannesburg knock reminded him of Sachin Tendulkar.

Virat stayed true to the legend’s words, scoring centuries one after another in whatever format he stepped legs on. He stands second in the most centuries’ list across all three formats, only next to Sachin.
