New Delhi: The final match of the two-Test series between India and Sri Lanka will be played in Bengaluru from Saturday (March 12). This will be Team India's fourth day-night Test match. Former Team India captain Virat Kohli is looking desperate to play in this match. Kohli shared a few pictures through a post on social media a day before the match. Through the post, Kohli said that he has reached Bengaluru and is very excited about playing the pink-ball Test. Kohli wrote in the post - Back to Bengaluru. Can't wait for tomorrow now.
This is the 101st Test match of Kohli's career, so this match becomes even more special. This M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru is also Kohli's second home ground. In such a situation, Kohli is also very happy to be back on this ground. Kohli has not been able to score a century in any format of cricket (Test, ODI, T20) for the last two-and-a-half years. In such a situation, Kohli would like to end this century drought in his second home ground.
Kohli has so far scored 70 centuries in international cricket. Kohli also scored his last Test century in a day-night Test. In such a situation, it can be expected from him that he can score a century while returning in this day-night Test. Kohli's last century was a day-night Test played against Bangladesh in November 2019. The match was played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Kohli was the captain of Team India and he scored 136 runs in the first innings.
