Virat Kohli celebrates his 45th ODI century | BCCIFormer India captain Virat Kohli set the Barsapara Cricket Ground in Guwahati, Assam on fire as he slammed his 45th ODI century on January 10, 2023, in the first ODI of the three-match series against Sri Lanka.

Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka chose to field first after winning the toss, a decision that cost him quite a few runs.

Openers Shubman Gill (70) and captain Rohit Sharma (83) added 143 runs for the first wicket. The momentum then carried as Virat Kohli anchored one end, and first Shreyas Iyer (28) and then KL Rahul (39) kept the run rate going, as Kohli kept the scoreboard ticking.
