India's tour to Australia: 91 at Perth was Virat Kohli's maiden ODI fifty vs Aussies Down Under

New Delhi: While he seems to be on a record-breaking spree in limited-overs cricket, Indian vice-captain Virat Kohli on Monday slammed his maiden ODI fifty vs Australia on their soil.

The right-hander, who already has 23 centuries from 167 ODIs, hit 91 runs off 97 balls against the c-led side at WACA ground in Perth.

It's quite shocking that Kohli, who has an exceptional track record against the Aussies Down Under in Tests, took way too many matches to cross the fifty-run mark in ODIs.

The 91-run knock in the opening encounter has automatically become the Delhi batsman's highest ODI score against the formidable Australian outfit Down Under.

However, his 207-run stand with opener Rohit Sharma for the 2nd wicket went in vain as India lost the opening encounter by five wickets.
