What Brian Lara Says To Virat kohli After Scoring A Century In His 500th International Game?

Former West Indian captain and one of the legends of the game, Brian Lara has appreciated Virat Kohli for his remarkable century in his 500th international game. He said that it is very tough to keep calm for someone like Virat kohli for a long time.

“He’s a great player, someone like that, you are not going to keep them down for long. If you do, some people have to pay at the end of the day. The way he has looked in the IPL and recently, he’s just an awesome player, and you can’t expect someone like that to be down for long,”Lara said during an interview.

Kohli looked in good touch on this West Indies tour. He got a fifty in the first Test but failed to convert it into a hundred. However, India won that match by an innings and 141 runs before coming to port of Spain.

Kohli got an away century in Test cricket almost after four years. Before registering this ton against West Indies, he got a century against Australia in Perth back in 2018. Then Kohli scored 123 runs but India failed to win that match and lost the game by 146 runs.

In the second Test match between West Indies and India, team India sits in a comfortable position scoring 438 runs in the first inning. It was Virat Kohli from India who smashed a solid hundred to make his 500th international match a memorable one. He not only became the first ever cricketer to score a hundred in his 500th international match but he also broke the record of Sir Don Bradman.
