The celebratory thing in anger has become old: Virat

Actually, I was shocked. This is the last format I thought of. It was an accumulation of many things. The team has been open and helpful. I know a lot was going on outside. And I kissed my ring."
Credit is given to the wife and daughter
Crediting his century to wife Anushka Sharma and his younger daughter, Virat Kohli said, "You see me standing here because one person has put things in perspective for me. She is Anushka.
This century is for her and also for our younger daughter Vamika. When you have someone who is talking about keeping things in perspective like Anushka has been… I wasn't desperate when I came back. After six weeks off I was refreshed. I realized how tired I was. Competition doesn't allow it, but this break allowed me to enjoy the game again."
