The star batsman is in an ominous mood in the Asia Cup. He scored his 47th ODI century in a Super 4 match against Pakistan earlier this week.
Kohli scored an unbeaten 122 against Pakistan as India won the match by 228 runs. However, he was dismissed cheaply against Sri Lanka on Tuesday.
Kohli said his 47th ODI hundred is a classic example of playing second fiddle.
Kohli’s lightning-quick run between the wickets was mainly down to this exemplary fitness, but he called those singles and doubles “easy runs” after reaching an unbeaten 122 off just 94 balls.
It was a typical Kohli hundred in which he piled up the runs through 38 singles and 15 twos before switching gears towards the end of the innings.
“I have always prepared my game in such a way that I can help the team. Today was a classic example of not getting off to a good start… KL started better, I tried to put him on strike and played second fiddle.” Kohli said when asked about his innings.
“And yes, after that I did my best where I could. I am very proud of my fitness. Pursuing a doubles match is easy, compared to a big opportunity. It has paid off before, I hope to continue in the same way to go.” he added.
Kohli will now be seen in action on Friday when India take on Bangladesh in their final Super 4 match.
India will also play the final on Sunday.
