Virat Kohli is scaling new heights every time he steps on to the field these days and added a new feather to his cap in Pune. He became the first Indian batsman to score three consecutive centuries in the One-Day Internationals. It was yet another flawless knock from the Indian captain which has impressed the Bollywood actress Saiyami Kher who lauded Kohli for the incredible achievement and was convinced that the cricketer possesses an invincible superpower.
Kohli has been making a merry of the Windies bowling attack in the last three ODIs despite the fact that the Men in Blue aren’t able to win matches consistently. His scores in the ongoing five-match series read 140,157 and 107 which is absolutely phenomenal to say the least. He has already completed 38 centuries in the 50-overs format and is only 11 behind the master himself Sachin Tendulkar in the format.
Kher takes a dig at Manjrekar
Saiyami Kher, like many other Indian fans, was anticipating Virat Kohli’s century in the third ODI against the Caribbean side and he didn’t disappoint anyone to leave everyone in his awe. The actress, who made her Bollywood debut with Mirzya movie, however, wasn’t entirely pleased with Sanjay Manjrekar‘s commentary and took a sly dig at him.
She went on to say that, despite Manjrekar trying to jinx Virat Kohli, the Indian captain managed to score the third consecutive century. “Even Manjrekar’s commentator’s curse doesn’t stop Virat from scoring a 100. I’m convinced Virat has some invincible superpower. #ViratKohli,” Saiyami tweeted.

Meanwhile, the five-match ODI series is locked at 1-1 now and the Windies have definitely surprised everyone with their performance so far. The fourth ODI is an all-important one now for both the teams even as India’s proud home record is at stake and expect nothing less than a century from the Indian skipper yet again. But he will need support from the other end which lacked in the Pune ODI on Saturday.
