Virat Kohli completed his 72nd hundred in 85 balls, laced with 11 fours and a six. The veteran batter ended his three-year century drought in this format of the game, which was his 44th ton in the fifty-over versio.

He surpassed former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting, who smashed 71 centuries in his career.

Kohli needs 28 hundreds to match Sachin Tendulkar’s world record of 100 hundreds in international cricket.

In one-day internationals, Virat needs 6 centuries to go past Sachin, who hit 49 tons in his career.

Earlier, Ishan was dismissed after scoring 210 off 131 balls, which included 24 fours and 10 sixes.
