Ind vs SL: Virat Kohli hits his 50th International century in style, creates another record

The 'run machine' of Indian cricket team Virat Kohli is constantly breaking all the records in 'game of fame' and becoming famous not only in India but also in the whole world. Every time Kohli comes to to bat, either he scripts history on his name or he equals a record made by some one else.

The most interesting thing about Virat Kohli is that more the pressure put upon him, the better he plays. The more people target him, the more he shut them down with his batting skills. It is due to his skills that he is being compared to legendary players of all time and most importantly to cricket great Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar.

The most remarkable thing about Kohli's batting class is that he is best in all the formats. In whichever format he came to bat he wrote history. It was recently when the Cricket Next had reported that 'Kohli has performed well in Test cricket and has also beaten Australian great batsman Donald Bradman. Kohli's conversion rate as a Test skipper is extremely fantastic.'

Now in the first Test match against Sri Lanka of three Test match series, Kohli has once again wrote history. With his century in the Test match, Kohli has entered in the league of those batsmen who have scored 50 centuries in all formats ( Test 18, ODI 32 ). Kohli was batting at the 98 and completed his century in style by hitting a six to Suranga Lakmal. The Indian skipper also declared the inning at 352/8, setting a 231-run target for the Sri Lankan team.

Kohli's ton against Sri Lanka was also his 11th International century as a skipper
