Virat Kohli dedicated the century to his family
After the game, Kohli was expressive in dedicating his 71st international century to Anushka Sharma, for helping him clear mental cobwebs. "Last two and a half years have taught me a lot. I am going to turn 34 in a month. So those angry celebrations are a thing of the past. Actually, I was shocked. This is the last format I thought. It was an accumulation of a lot of things, as I said. When I came back into the team, the team's been really open and welcoming and helpful, given me space to work on my game. I know there was a lot of stuff going on the outside but they really kept my perspective right, and I kissed my ring in the celebration as well.
"You see me standing here like this right now because all the things that have been put in perspective have been done by one person, who stood by me through all these difficult times, that's Anushka and this hundred is specially dedicated to her and our little daughter Vamika as well. As I said, when you have someone next to you putting the things in right perspective like I have been, and Anushka has been by my side through all these times .. time away from the game taught me lot of things, " he added.
