Virat Kohli led-Men in Blue comprehensively emerged victorious in the 2nd ODI against Australia to level the three-match series 1-1. India beat Australia by 6-wickets at the Adelaide Oval, Indian skipper Virat Kohli led the Indian team from the front as he scored yet another century to take his team over the line.

Kohli was well supported by former Indian captain MS Dhoni who led the charge after his dismissal.

Former Indian skipper Mohammad Azharuddin on Wednesday revealed that Virat Kohli can score 100 centuries if he remains fit.

Speaking to Aaj Tak, Mohammad Azharuddin said, "Virat Kohli's consistency level has been achieved by very few people. And I believe if he's fit, and if there's no injury, he can reach 100 hundreds. His consistency level is better than most players around the world."

Apart from Kohli, MS Dhoni also looked to be in sublime form, where he smashed the winning run in typical Dhoni fashion to take India home.

Kohli, after the match, praised MS Dhoni's effort, and said, "There is no doubt that he should be a part of this team. Tonight was MS classic. He calculates the game so well. He takes the game till the end, when only he knows what's going on in his mind, and he backs himself to hit those big shots at the end."

Kohli was also all praise for seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar for his crucial blows at the death.

"Bhuvi was outstanding to pull things back for us. Vijay Shankar is in the squad, he's an all-rounder, so that gives us an option to play around with - but we'll see how we go. But backing five bowlers and seeing it come off is pleasing as a captain."
