Virat Kohli has come to play his 100th Test against Sri Lanka in Mohali. Fans expected that Kohli would make this achievement more memorable by scoring a century in his 100th Test match, but in the first innings, Virat Kohli returned to the pavilion after scoring 45 runs in 76 balls. Before this Test match, many veteran cricketers had also expressed their desire that Kohli would score his 71st international century on the occasion of his 100th Test. Former England captain Michael Vaughan’s name was also included in this list. But the fans were quite annoyed about the tweet of his century for Virat Kohli. One user even said that he overlooked Kohli’s century.
Michael Vaughan tweeted before the start of the first test and wrote, “Early signs of Virat scoring 100 runs in the 100th test .. I hope he can .. what a big player he is and how many for the longer format Excellent players.
On this tweet of Michael Vaughan, a user wrote, Jesus Inshallah Shiva please save. Some even declared Vaughan a ransom and advised him to focus on his players.
Early signs of Virat getting a 100 in his 100th Test .. I really hope he can .. What a player he is & what a servant he is to the greatest format .. #INDvSL

Virat Kohli failed to play a big innings despite a good start in his historic 100th Test but wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant’s attacking half-century helped India score 357 for six on the first day of the first cricket Test against Sri Lanka here on Friday.
Pant missed his fifth Test century by just four runs but his blistering 96 off 97 balls with nine fours and four sixes and his sixth-wicket 104-run partnership with Ravindra Jadeja (45 not out) made India into the final session. He managed to consolidate his position by adding 158 runs. At the end of the day’s play, Ravichandran Ashwin was supporting Jadeja after scoring 10 runs.
