Initially, Virat was supposed to play his 100th Test match in Cape Town last month during India’s tour of South Africa. However, he missed the second Test match of the series, in Johannesburg.

His 100th Test match was supposed to be more special as it was to be played in M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangaluru, the city for which he plays in the IPL, but a change in schedule resulted in Mohali being the venue for Kohli’s milestone game for India.

Meanwhile, fans on social media are slamming the BCCI for not honoring Virat Kohli’s massive achievement. Here, check out the reactions of Twitterati to this:

India is scheduled to play the first of the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka in Mohali and the second Test match will be played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
