Team India skipper Virat Kohli on Saturday became the first Asian cricketer to score a century in a D/N Test clash after achieving the milestone on the second day of the historic pink-ball test between the hosts and Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
Kohli who seemed to be in great touch during the game, managed to score 136 runs before being dismissed on the back of a superb catch by Taijul Islam.
However, the 31-year-old will not be too disappointed by the dismissal having played an excellent knock, which brought great joy to the spectators at the Eden Gardens. Kohli further brought up his 27th century in the longest format of the game during the course of the knock.
Let's take a look at how Twitter reacted to his knock:

India are on top of Bangladesh at the time of filing the report, having restricted them to 68/4 on the back of a fine bowling display by Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav.
