India vs Pakistan is one of the biggest rivalries in cricket, and when they meet, it is often a high-intensity match. Players from both teams are under big pressure as the world is watching them. Well, the biggest rivalry is going to take place a couple of times, as they met at the Asia Cup and are also going to face each other in the World Cup. Today, round 2 of India vs Pakistan continued in the Asia Cup, and Virat Kohli and Kl Rahul smashed a hundred against Pakistan.
The game began with both Indian openers taking on the Pakistan bowling lineup. Rohit Sharma hit a six in the first over, whereas Shubman Gill bashed Shaheen Afridi by hitting three boundaries in the same over. They complemented each other so well that they put together their fourth hundred-run partnership in twelve innings. Both openers scored a half-century but got out soon.
Then it was the pair of Virat Kohli and Kl Rahul who went on strike, but the rain had other plans. Due to heavy rain and wet outfield conditions, the match was postponed to the reserve day.

Virat Kohli scored 122 runs off 94 balls
Kohli started slowly and was observing what the ball and pitch were doing. With the ball not swinging and the pitch helping the ball come onto the bat, he started hitting. Moreover, with his running between the wickets and consecutive boundaries against the Pakistan pace attack, things started looking dangerous. Finally, in the 48th over, Kohli scored his 77th century in just 84 balls. India posted a total of 356/2, and he scored 122 runs off 94 balls.
Kl Rahul scored 111 runs off 106 balls
Things were way more difficult for Rahul before he entered the pitch. He missed a lot of games due to his injury and also missed the first two games of the Asia Cup. But he kept all the pressure off the ground and smashed his sixth ODI century. He scored 111 runs off 106 balls, which included 12 fours and 2 sixes.
