Indian superstar Virat Kohli finally ended his almost three-year-long century drought with a majestic knock against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup match in Dubai on Thursday.

It's also Kohli's first century in T20 international cricket. He has equalled Australian legend Ricky Ponting with his 71st century in international cricket across formats. Sachin Tendulkar leads the race with 100 international centuries.

Kohli's last century came against Bangladesh on November 22, 2019, in a Test match.
