The one century that he has scored in this format has to be at the top of this list because this hundred was one of the most special for Virat Kohli. Before this for almost 3 years he had not gotten a hundred in international cricket and all the fans and experts were getting worried that maybe he was getting out of touch but this one innings took the monkey off his back and now he is back in form. He only took 61 balls to make 222 and he hit 12 fours and 6 sixes meaning a total of 84 runs in boundaries. His strike rate was a staggering 200 and India won this match by 101 Runs.


68 vs Sri Lanka (2012)

This was his first half century in this format and it resulted in an Indian win so this knock will feature in this list . In this innings, Virat Kohli came at number 3 and in 48 balls while hitting 11 fours and 1 six meaning a total of 50 runs in boundaries he hit 68 runs at a strike rate of 141.67. This knock must have given him a lot of confidence and he showed that in the following years to come and will show for a few more years.


78* vs Pakistan (2012)

This was one of his best ever as it came in a very difficult match for batters and he was the only one who stood out in such a low scoring match. Pakistan while batting first made 128 only and India needed 129 to win and at number 3 came Virat Kohli and from that moment there was only 1 result possible in this match as Virat Kohli toom the great Pakistan bowling to the cleaners that day and in 61 balls that he faced he hit 8 fours and 2 sixes meaning 44 runs in boundaries. His strike rate was an impressive 127.87 and India won this match with 3 overs to spare and he has become a national hero by beating Pakistan.


90* vs Australia (2016)

This is one of the best away T20I innings from an Indian batter and it came in Australia and at the ground that Virat Kohli loved the most and this was a match where India were batting first and he came at number 3 and he took just 55 balls to make 90 runs and he hit 9 fours and 2 sixes in this match meaning a total of 48 runs in boundaries. He had a very good strike rate of 163.64 and as a result of his brilliance India made 188 and win the match by 37 runs in the end. This was one innings that made the Aussies stand up and applaud.


82* vs Australia (2016)

This list would be incomplete without this innings by Virat Kohli because according to many people this is the best international innings that has ever been played in this format. It was the semi final match of the 2016 World Cup and India were chasing a big total and all the other batters were getting out and it looked like an Australian win but Virat Kohli had other ideas. He batted for 51 balls and hit 9 fours and 2 sixes in this innings and he was in a zone and with 5 balls remaining in the match he won the match for India single handedly and took them to the final.
