Virat Kohli: 71 Century
Virat Kohli the guy who made runs for fun and made scoring centuries after centuries like child’s play, but this was the case till 2019 where he scored 7 centuries in a year. Which includes the century in pink ball test which Indian played against Bangladesh in the same year.
But it seems like after that Virat’s form has taken a slump and refused to get back to Indian red-ball skipper, since November 2019, since then captain has played 50 matches, 56 innings, and has scored 1989 runs with an average of 40.59 where is highest score is 94 runs.
In between that Virat has played some innings where he looked promising but soon after getting a start he started to throw away his wicket. This has been Virat’s biggest draught of the century, he hit his worst form in the year 2014 but in the same year he managed to score 100s to his name.
But in 2021 he is still very behind from his best because prior to that he made 36 centuries combined the years 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. In 2018 he had the best conversion rate he went on to score a three-digit figure in 11 innings out of 20 innings he played.
It is very clear that Virat is going through some lean patch of his career but if we compare it to the rest of the batters around the world, Kohli is the joint second joint in the list he got bettered by Pakistani sensation Babar Azam.
If we see a frequency of fifty-plus scores across the format minimum 50 innings Kohli still manages to get on number 5 despite going through the leanest patch of his form. Only Babar Azam, Joe Root, Mohammad Rizwan and Rohit Sharma are ahead of him.
