The ICC on Tuesday released the full schedule of the T20 World Cup, set to be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman. India will begin their campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan in Dubai on October 24. The Men in Blue also have to play a T20 match in the World Cup on November 5, which will also be the 33rd birthday of Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli.
For almost the last two years, Virat is desperately waiting to score his 71st ton. Against which team, India will play the match on this day, is not decided yet. Here’s why!
India has to play a match on Virat’s birthday against the winning team of Group B. This will be confirmed when all the teams in Group B will play against each other. After facing Pakistan on October 24, India has to play the next match against New Zealand on October 31 in Dubai and then on November 3 against Afghanistan in Abu Dhabi. Apart from this, India will also play another match against the second-placed team from Group A, which is to be played on November 8.
When was the last time Virat scored a century?
Talking about Virat’s last century in international cricket, it came against Bangladesh on Indian soil in November 2019. He had then scored 136 runs against Bangladesh during the Day-Night Test at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. After that, Virat has played 43 international matches including all formats, but has not been able to score a century.
It is not that Virat did not score runs or did not played big knocks during this period. During this, the star batsman scored 17 fifties with the bat, but every time he somehow missed on scoring a century.
