Virat Kohli has not scored a Test hundred since November 2019. His last Test century came in a day/night game against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens. The right-handed batter has played Test cricket across the world since that game. While he has come close to touching the magical three-figure mark, he has always fallen short.
Kohli recently played two innings in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship match between the Indian cricket team and the England cricket team. He has fond memories of playing at Edgbaston, but in the ongoing game, he could not end his drought of Test hundreds.
In the first innings, Matty Potts picked up his wicket, while in the second innings, a stunning delivery from Ben Stokes helped the England cricket team send Virat Kohli back to the dressing room without ending his Test hundred drought.
A Twitter user soon pointed out that the drought of Test centuries will continue more because the Indian cricket team will not play any Test matches till the end of the year. India are scheduled to play an ICC World Test Championship series against the Bangladesh cricket team later this year, which might happen in November or December.
“Just realised Kohli would’ve gone more than 1,000 days without a Test hundred by the time he plays the next Test.”

Virat Kohli recently had an argument with Jonny Bairstow at Edgbaston
Yesterday at Edgbaston, fans witnessed an argument between Kohli and England cricket team’s star batter Jonny Bairstow. When Bairstow was batting, Kohli had a war of words with him while fielding at the slips. Speaking about that argument in the post-day press conference, Bairstow said:
“We’ve been fortunate to play against each other for over 10 years now, so we’ve had some fierce battles on the field and we’re fiercely competitive on the field.”
