Virat Kohli was put down on 29. That was the only chance he gave to New Zealand in the innings before he went on to score his 31st ODI century. The Indian captain also became only the second player in ODI history to score a century in his 200th One-Day International. South Africa batsman AB de Villiers also has a century in his 200th ODI.
It was an unsual but a patient innings from the Indian captain as he took his time to rebuild the Indian innings. He did not shift gears after reaching his half-century, a trend in his previous ODI centuries. He took 111 balls to reach the three-figure mark.
