Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, became the fifth Indian player to hit 100 fifty-plus scores in List A cricket (domestic and international 50-over matches). He achieved this landmark during the third ODI match against New Zealand as he scored 60 off 74 balls.
Apart from Virat, the list includes Sachin Tendulkar (174) Rahul Dravid (133), Sourav Ganguly (128), and MS Dhoni (101).
“I couldn’t have asked for a better performance after the first two clinical performances and just the relentlessness of the side is something that really pleases me,” he said after India easily chased down New Zealand’s 243 with seven overs to spare.
“I haven’t had a break for a long time. It’s been a very hectic Australian tour and now I go on a break very happy, 3-0 up, sealing the series and I can relax and enjoy my break.”
