The date of Virat Kohli last century is July 21, 2023, which came against West Indies at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad during the first innings. This was the king of cricket Virat Kohli’s 29th Test century as he amassed 121 runs in 206 balls. Kohli’s last century came exactly two months back on May 21, in IPL against Gujarat Titans.
An ICC Men’s Player of the Decade awardee, Virat Kohli had once gone a whopping 53 innings without a century in international cricket – 32 Test innings and 28 ODI innings. While Kohli still averages 49.95 in Tests and 58.07 in ODIs, going 53 innings without a ton is underperformance by his standard, who was pegged to overcome Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 centuries across all formats of cricket.

Virat Kohli last century in Test cricket
Virat Kohli had to wait 3 years, 3 months, and 20 days, to get his 28th Test century after he had last managed a ton in the longest format of the game in 2019. That came against Bangladesh in 2019 at the iconic Eden Gardens.
Virat Kohli has been in fabulous touch in the ongoing India tour of West Indies. He had scored 76 runs in the first Test, thereby missing his 29th Test ton by just 24 runs.
However, the former India Test captain achieved that on Friday, July 21, 2023, as he hit 11 boundaries to bring up his Test century in 272 minutes to equal Don Bradman’s record of Test hundreds.
This is also Kohli’s 76th international hundred, and unlike the Test list of most hundreds are scored where there are many ahead of him, Kohli is just second to Sachin Tendulkar on this list.

Virat Kohli last century in ODI cricket
The most-perfect batsman that the ODI game of cricket has ever produced, Virat Kohli has struggled in his favourite format of late. Kohli’s last ODI century came on January 10, 2023, with India hosting Sri Lanka. It was a classic Virat Kohli knock while batting first on familiar home territory. Kohli scored 113 runs in just 87 balls to help India set a target of 374 runs.
It was the 45th ODI hundred for the former Indian captain as Virat Kohli, the second since he broke his century drought in ODI after 28 innings.
Bad form is something that India’s best of batsmen like Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar had faced during their playing days. A player having 45 ODI centuries in 251 innings cannot be criticised over lack of form and Gavaskar rightly points out Kohli’s situation.
