Former Indian captain and batting maestro Virat Kohli enjoys a huge fan following, not just in India but around the world. He remains a big name in the cricket world. The batting superstar recently became the 12th Indian cricketer to enter the 100th Test club when Rohit Sharma-led team India locked horns with Sri Lanka in the 2-match series opener in Mohali.
While the cricketer has shattered numerous records and is hailed as the modern legend of the game, however, he has been stuck on a landmark for over two years now. He last scored the three-figure mark in November 2019 and fans across have been waiting for the stylish cricketer’s elusive 71st century.
While the talk and discussions around his much-awaited century don’t bother Kohli but a fan from Pakistan has made a special request.
Well, lately, a picture of a fan, holding a banner for him while sitting at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore during Pakistan’s third Test against Australia has gone insanely viral on social media. In the picture, the fan can be seen holding a placard that read: “We will not get married until Virat Kohli will make his 71st century”

This isn’t the first time that a Virat Kohli fan from Pakistan has grabbed the attention for making a special request to the maestro. Recently, during the ongoing Test between Pakistan and Australia in Rawalpindi, a Pakistan fan was spotted with a poster asking Kohli to score a century in Pakistan. The message in the banner read:
“We want your 71st century in Pakistan,”

In another incident, a fan from Pakistan kept waving the batsman’s poster during a PSL game last month. Even Pakistan’s legendary bowler Shoaib Akhtar had also shared a picture of the fan via his official Twitter handle.
