The Indian captain has a total of 56 international centuries to his name – which includes Virat Kohli Test Centuries – 21 and Virat Kohli ODI Centuries – 35. While has has always been rated as one of the all-time greats to have played the ODI format, Kohli is also quickly developing a reputation as a red-ball great with consistent performances and centuries in the Test arena.
