BCCI President Sourav Ganguly congratulated Virat Kohli for completing his hundredth Test and said that the star had achieved an exceptional achievement in playing 100 Tests in a country like India where everyone wants to be a cricketer.

Kohli has played 99 Test matches and will join the 100-Test club during India's first Test match against Sri Lanka, which starts in Mohali on Friday. India will take on Sri Lanka in the first of the 2-Test series in Mohali from Friday, March 4.

"It is a huge landmark in any cricketer’s career. Playing a hundred Test matches is something you dream of when you start playing for the country. It’s a great moment for Virat, it’s a great moment for Indian cricket. I have personally been in this situation and realized how humongous and momentous this is personally for

any cricketer," Sourav Ganguly said.

"Virat’s had a great journey. Starting 10-11 years ago and getting to where he has reached today is an exceptional achievement. On behalf of BCCI and also a former captain and player who has played 100 Test matches and more, I wish him all the very best," Ganguly added.

He added that Kohli still has some time left in his career; therefore, he can achieve ‘greater milestones. Interestingly, the Mohali Test match will also be Kohli’s first after seven years as simply a player and not the leader.’

“He has had a fantastic career and he is still got some time left to achieve the greater milestone and I hope he continues doing that. Congratulations to him, his family, his coach and all those who were involved in his cricketing career.”
