9. 118(121) Vs Australia, Vishakhapatnam, 20th October 2010
Virat Kohli was in severe pains during this knock suffering from cramps and had to avail the benefit of a runner. Still it all was not enough to deter the resolve of Kohli to get India past the line in this tricky chase of 290. Coming together with Yuvraj, the duo shared a stand of 137 runs between them. The match saw Mitchell Starc make his ODI debut and not a pleasant one with the bowler going for 51 runs in 8.5 overs. Kohli hit 11 fours and a six on the way to this painful hundred. Although he himself couldn’t be there when the winning runs were scored, he made sure India got there pretty easily. Kohli was rightly adjudged Man of the Match for this knock.
