Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli was honoured with his name being engraved on the Trent Bridge Honours Board as he scored his 23rd Test century in the third Test match of the ongoing five-match Test series against England on August 21, Tuesday.
At the 3rd Test match of current T-series going on between India and England, Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli managed to score the 23rd century of his test career on August. In the first innings of the same match, Virat fell off in 97 runs only, but he swung back and grabbed the chance in next inning to scored 103 runs making it his second century of test match. Virat managed to score his 23rd test century on Tuesday, thanks to the complimenting partnership from Cheteshwar Pujara for scoring 113 runs together and setting a sky-high target of 521 runs for the opponents.
Upon achieving the feat of scoring 23 Test centuries, Virat Kohli was honoured with his name being engraved on the Trent Bridge Honours Board. Perhaps because it was a classic hundred which completely changed the complexion of the game and also that it was Kohli’s second century at Trent Bridge tour. While BCCI shared Kohli’s picture with the Indian fans cheering, Kohli said, “Feels really good to be up on the honours board, especially when your effort is recognized in that way and the team has benefited from it.”
Kohli added how these things don’t really matter much, they add “a nice touch for any player to recollect all the memories of what they have achieved in the different parts of the world.” The last time when a player made his name to the Trent Bridge Honours board was Joe Root, twice in 2014 and 2015. During 2014, the classy right-handed opener Murali Vijay also found a place alongside Joe Root and Kohli became the first Indian to achieve the honours.
