Virat Kohli, India's star batter, ended a long wait for a One Day International century against Bangladesh on Saturday in Chittagong.

It was his 44th ODI century and 72nd in international cricket. With this century, he surpassed Ricky Ponting's total of 71 international tons, and now only Sachin Tendulkar stands in his way (100 centuries).

Kohli was out for 113 off 91 balls in the 42nd over of the game.

It marks Kohli’s second international century of 2022 as he earlier ended another long wait, one for his 71st century as well as the first in T20Is when he scored a ton against Afghanistan at the Asia Cup.
