Former Indian skipper and batting superstar Virat Kohli is enjoying a purple patch with the bat in ODI cricket as he has smashed three centuries in the format within the course of the last month. The 34-year-old has also completed 46 ODI centuries and is now only four centuries away from breaking the record highest ODI centuries by former legendary Indian batter Sachin Tendulkar.
The 35-year-old will be in action with the Indian team in the upcoming second of the three-match ODI series against New Zealand. Both teams will play this match on Saturday, the 21st of January at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur.

A Twitter user happened to share the pictures of Virat Kohli’s posters in the streets of Raipur and subsequently, the fans also reacted to this much love and fan following for the veteran of 74 international centuries.
