- Vaughan spoke big on Kohli
Indian captain Virat Kohli has played many memorable and brilliant innings. Known as the ‘run machine’, Kohli has batted on several occasions in the last two years. However, he could not score any international century during this period. At the same time, Kohli has failed to reach triple digits i.e. hundreds in 15 innings of the last nine Test matches. The second match of the five-Test series against England begins at Lord’s on Thursday. In such a situation, cricket fans and the country will be waiting for Kohli’s century drought to end. Now former England captain Mile Vaughan has also predicted that Kohli can score a century at Lord’s.
‘Won’t be surprised if Virat is seen doing this’
In the first Test against England in Nottingham, Kohli was dismissed for zero by paceman James Anderson. He did not get a chance to bat in the second innings as the Test match was drawn due to rain. Vaughan said in a conversation with Cricbuzz before the second match, ‘Virat Kohli has not scored a century for a long time. Lord’s motivates the players. When Grace walks through the gates at Lord’s, there is a different feeling. Great players are inspired by great grounds and great moments. I wouldn’t be surprised if Virat is seen here waving his bat when he reaches triple digits (after scoring a century).
Kohli scored his last century in front of Bangladesh
Kohli’s last Test century was scored in November 2019. He then played an innings of 136 against Bangladesh in Kolkata. Kohli scored his last century in ODIs against West Indies in August 2019. At the same time, in T20, Kohli had reached close to the century twice, but he did not get success. He scored 94 runs against West Indies in December 2019 and 85 against Australia in December 2020. Let us tell you that Kohli has scored 70 international centuries so far. He has scored 27 hundreds in Tests and 43 in ODIs.
Virat Kohli has a poor record at Lord’s
Significantly, Kohli has a poor record at Lord’s. The Indian captain has played four innings so far at Lord’s, in which he scored 65 runs. His highest score at this ground is 25 runs. Barring Ajinkya Rahane, vice-captain in the current Indian team, no other batsman has scored a century in Test matches at Lord’s. Rahane scored 103 in the first innings at this historic ground in 2014 and was instrumental in India’s 95-run victory.
