According to ESPNcricinfo, the number of cricketers who have featured in 100 matches in each of the international formats is as follows:

  • Seventy-two in Tests
  • 272 in ODIs
  • 14 in T20Is

Among them, only two have completed a century in all three: Ross Taylor and now Kohli.

The star batter has been dominant across the board, averaging nearly 50 in all three formats.

Kohli has played 262 ODIs, 102 Tests and 99 T20Is so far after having made his international debut in 2008.

He played his 100th ODI as early as 2013 and completed his 100th Test earlier this year during a home series against Sri Lanka.
