India registered a resounding 67-run victory in the first ODI. Kohli shone with the bat in the first match, scoring his 45th ODI hundred by scoring 113 off 87 balls.

Kohli had earlier scored 113 runs

This was Kohli’s 73rd international century and second consecutive century in ODIs. He had earlier scored just 113 runs against Bangladesh last month.

However, India lost the series against Bangladesh 2–1. Now former Team India opener Gautam Gambhir has once again taunted Kohli. Both Gambhir and Kohli shared the dressing room in the Indian team for a while.

Gambhir taunts Kohli, said – “Scoring a century is good, but do not forget the defeat from Bangladesh”

An expert panel, including former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar, on Thursday spoke about Kohli’s recent performance in the mid-match show during the second ODI. Gambhir insisted that Kohli’s focus should be on collective performance rather than ‘individual performance’.

Gambhir said –

“We should not forget that India lost their last ODI series against Bangladesh. We have forgotten about that. Yes, individual talent is important, individual hundreds are important, when it comes to your record it looks good Whether you scored 50 hundreds or 100, but you should never forget what happened in Bangladesh. Because it’s a great lesson.”
