When did Virat Kohli’s Last Century Come?
Remember when did Virat Kohli’s last century come?
The question has never been asked so frequently for any other batsman. But for Virat Kohli, it has become his pet peeve. Probably, because Virat has set the bar so high for himself with so many world-class performances, match-winning innings, and runs in every part of the world (where cricket is played) that every time he steps in the field, his fans expect nothing less than a century from him.
There is no denying that Virat Kohli is modern-day batting great. No matter what critics say, his numbers speak for himself. However, his batting form has taken a dip over the last few years.
Despite being one of the leading run-scorers for his country, Kohli has not scored a century across the formats in the last two years. His most recent one came in November 2019 when he scored 136 in a Day/Night Test at Eden Garden.
Kohli’s last ODI ton came against West Indies on 14th August 2019 when he scored an unbeaten 101 from 143 deliveries in Port of Spain, West Indies. That was also his last away century.

Since the one against Bangladesh, Virat has played 56 international innings without a century. The draught is also taking a toll on his captaincy as the skipper is now losing grip on his captaincy.
To minimize the damage, Kohli has announced that he will not lead the Indian Cricket team in T20Is after the T20 World Cup 2021 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Well, that’s a topic for another day. Let’s get back to his centuries.
The right-handed batsman, second best after Sachin Tendulkar, in terms of batting records, has no T20I century to date. His best score in the shortest format was 94* against West Indies on December 5, 2019.
Virat Kohli is a big name in the cricketing world. He has been playing for India and his batting has been very successful, especially in ODI’s. A lot of people have asked how many centuries he has, so here is a table of all his ODI centuries.
