With a triple-digit score for India at the Ahmedabad Test, Virat Kohli finally got the Test hundred off his back. Even though the game was a draw, Kohli's brilliant 186-run innings made the Indian team and its supporters beyond ecstatic.
Australian batter, Usman Khawaja, who also got a century during the game, and wicket-keeper Alex Carey were the recipients of Kohli's amazing gesture after the game, a gift of shirt.
The Indian Cricket Team on their social media shared a video of Virat Kohli gifting his shirts to both Khawaja and Carey.
In his post-match interview, talking about the expectations Kohli sets for himself, he said:
"The expectations that I have for myself as a player are more important to me. I am not in a space now where I will go out and prove someone wrong. I also need to justify why I am there on the field."
He also talked about how he did not feel like himself when he was off-form and how he pushed himself to work harder:
"I think in Test cricket I wasn't able to play with my tempo and template that I have played with for the last 10 years for awhile now. So that was the one thing I was trying to do. I felt like I was batting really well from the first innings in Nagpur."
