Indian batsman Virat Kohli is going to return to international cricket once again from the upcoming Asia Cup 2022. Kohli will go into the tournament to play the 100th T20I match of his career in the great match against Pakistan on August 28. The Indian team will start their title-saving campaign in the tournament from this match against Pakistan at the Dubai International Stadium. Kohli, who has been rested from the West Indies and Zimbabwe ODI series, will play his first match.
In the Asia Cup, India has won the title seven times so far and this time it would like to win the record eighth trophy. Kohli has performed exceptionally well in all his previous Asia Cups except the 2018 edition. King Kohli played his last match on the tour of England. Apart from this, he has not scored any century for the last three years. Former captain Kohli is waiting for his 71st century for almost 1000 days. However, this time it is expected that Kohli can score a century in his 100th T20 International match. He has played his career best innings of 183 runs against Pakistan in 2012.
