Virat Kohli 100th Test: Kohli to play 100th Test in Mohali – Former India captain Virat Kohli may miss out on playing his 100th Tets at his second home ground in Bengaluru as the Sri Lanka series will now be reversed, starting with the T20 series. Kohli was slated to begin his non-captaincy days and play his 100th Test at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru from February 25 against Sri Lanka.

As per a Cricbuzz report, the batting maestro will now play his 100th Test in Mohali which will be the 1st Test. Having led Royal Challengers Bangalore for nearly seven years, it would have been fitting had he played his 100th Test at the same ground. But the change in schedule may not allow him to do that.
