Wasim Jaffer predicts at least one century from Virat Kohli in Australia ODI series

Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer believes star batter Virat Kohli would have a successful ODI series against Australia. He believes the former India captain would hit at least one century throughout the series.

India is slated to play a three-match One-Day International series against Australia, which will begin on March 17 at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. The second and final matches will be held on March 19 and 22 in Visakhapatnam and Chennai, respectively.

“There is no competition in one-day cricket for Virat Kohli,” says one observer. I anticipate Virat Kohli to score at least one century in this series, and if he doesn’t, it will be a failure by his standards. Although I predict a century, he has the ability to score two. He also enjoys playing against Australia, and when he is in form, it lasts a long time. “Maybe, we’ll get to watch his centuries,” Jaffer told ESPNcricinfo.

“They would undoubtedly want to retain their control. India would also want to end their season on a positive note since the IPL 2023 will begin after this and all Indian players will play for new teams. This is the last opportunity for all Indian cricketers to play together for a time. It is also an excellent chance for India to demonstrate why they are the overwhelming favourites to win the World Cup. As a result, they will want to do well before the season ends,” he continued.

Meanwhile, Kohli, 34, struck 186 in the last Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, his first Test century since November 2019. Incidentally, India regained the Trophy, winning the series 2-1 with a tie in the last Test. India has also secured a place in the World Test Championship (WTC) final, which will begin on June 7 at The Oval.
