With every passing day, Virat Kohli is making the world to fall for him even more. It looks like he can achieve anything on the cricket field. When Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar ticked to his hundredth hundred, everyone thought no one can scale to this mountain. And it has been only seven years since then and Kohli has crossed the two-thirds of this journey.
The extended purple patch of Indian skipper seems never getting fade away any moment soon. He is scoring tons of runs since the commencement of 2016 and broke several records in the meantime. The world has run out of adjectives to describe his greatness and they are not shy in admitting this fact.
On Friday, Kohli scored yet another One-Day International hundred. His 41st in this format and he needs nine more to surpass Tendulkar in this list. Well, it looks just a matter of time.
Veteran England batsman Ian Bell was in full praises for Kohli after his masterful innings in Ranchi. Bell admitted that he is short of words to describe this genius. On Twitter, he wrote “In other news… Virat Kohli….Absolutely next level! Have run out of words to describe this guy!”

Legendary leg-spinner Shane Warne heaped praises on Kohli and said he loves watching Kohli bat and his never say die attitude. Warne also expressed his happiness for underfiring Aaron Finch, who finally broke the shackles in Ranchi and scored 93 runs.
Warne wrote “I love watching Virat Kohli bat & play cricket as he never ever gives up & always believes his team can win when he’s batting. Just a terrific attitude & one that warms my heart. Congrats to Oz on a wonderful win, some great signs with bat & ball! Very happy for Aaron Finch too!”

Hence, the hosts got dismissed for 281. The series is nicely poised at 2-1 in India’s favor with two matches are yet to be played
