IND vs SL: ‘He made everyone love Test cricket’ says Irfan Pathan on Virat Kohli

IND vs SL: Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan on Thursday congratulated Virat Kohli on his 100th test appearance on Thursday, saying that he has made everyone fall in love with the longest format all over again.

“Test cricket was limping and that’s when it found a magical physio in Virat Kohli. He came, He conquered and He made everyone love test cricket all over again! Congratulations @imVkohli on your remarkable achievement,” tweeted Irfan.

Kohli’s 100th Test match will not be held in behind closed doors. In Mohali, India will play the first of two Test matches against Sri Lanka. The M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru will host the second Test match.

The former India captain will now join the ranks of legends. Such as Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Anil Kumble, Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, and others who have played 100 Tests or more for the country.

Kohli will play his 100th Test match under Rohit Sharma’s leadership, who will be leading India in Test matches for the first time. Kohli has 7,962 runs at an average of 50.39 in 99 Tests and 27 tonnes to his name.
