Master batsman Virat Kohli brought up his 25th century on Sunday, smashing a four off Mitchell Starc to reach triple figures on day three of the second Test in Perth.

Playing in his 75th Test, the Indian run-machine did it in style with classic straight drive to take his team to 214 for four in reply to Australia's 326.

He hit 11 fours in the battling 214-ball knock after coming to the crease with his team in trouble after losing two early wickets.

It was his sixth ton in Australia, putting him in the elite company of Sachin Tendulkar. As always, Twitter was abuzz and in awe of King Kohli.
