Virat Kohli brings up his 32nd ton in the 3rd One Day International versus New Zealand. It is the decider of the series as the series is level at 1-1. This is Virat Kohli’s 5th ton against the Kiwis and the 10th as captain. This also happens to be Virat Kohli’s 6th ton as captain of team India in 2017. He is also the highest run-getter in ODI’s this year. With history beckoning the Kiwis, Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bowl first considering there were possibilities of dew later on. India did not get off to the best of starts as they lost Shikhar Dhawan cheaply. Dhawan departed for 14 runs. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli then got together to stitch a record 200-run partnership for the 1st wicket. Rohit Sharma brought up his 15th ton as he scored 147 off 138 balls. But it was Kohli’s 32nd ton under pressure that stole the show. It was a chanceless inning unlike his hundred in the 1st ODI.
Kohli has been in that sort of form as he quests to take team India to the numero uno spot in all the three formats. Here is the pick of tweets on Virat Kohli’s innings.

Virat Kohli is out for 113 as we speak. India has gone well past 300 and is looking good for more.
