India recorded a resounding 228-run win thanks to star batter Virat Kohli who slammed his 47th ODI ton in their Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match on Monday. Kohli, who scored 122 off 94 balls, partnered alongside KL Rahul to take India towards a huge 356 for 2 in 50 overs.

A video of Virat Kohli entering into the field to bat has made on to social media. Kohli could be seen pulling up his collars, twirling his bat and touching the field.

Talking about his innings, Kohli called those singles and doubles "easy runs" after racking up an unbeaten 122 off just 94 balls.

"I always prepared my game in a way I can help the team. Today was a classic example of you don't get off to a good start... KL started better, I was trying to bring him on strike and playing second fiddle," said Kohli when asked about his innings.  

"And yes, then after that I stepped up where I could. I take a lot of pride in fitness. Pushing for doubles are easy runs, compared to a big shot. It has paid off before, hope to continue in the same way," he added.

Talking about the partnership with Rahul, Kohli said: "Both KL and myself are both conventional players. And when you have him batting the way he was and me playing, its tough to break these partnerships because we don't play fancy shots.     

"We didn't think about the partnership too much, the idea was to 'keep batting.' It is one of the memorable partnerships we've had and for Indian cricket as well. He hit form for us straightaway, good for us (going into the World Cup)."

Kohli was understandably tired after an epic knock but stated that he will be ready for the Tuesday clash against Sri Lanka

"It's the first time I have done anything (play back-to-back ODIs) like this in 15 years of cricket. Luckily, we are Test players, so we know how to come back the next day and play. Recovery is crucial. It was humid out there today. I will be 35 in November, so I need to take care of my recovery.
