Kohli scored 63 runs in the match. He also missed a chance to match Australia’s Ricky Ponting’s record. If Kohli had scored a century in the match, he would have matched Australia’s Ricky Ponting’s 71 international century. Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for most international centuries.

If Kohli had scored a century in this match, he would have also equaled Tendulkar’s record of scoring the most centuries against Australia in ODIs. Tendulkar has scored 9 centuries against Australia in ODIs. Whereas, Kohli and Rohit Sharma scored 8-8 centuries. At number four in this list is former West Indies cricketer Desmond Haynes. He has scored 6 centuries.

Kohli is the second Indian to join the club of 12 thousand
