The 30-year-old notched his 11th ton of the year to bail India out of trouble, when the side was reeling at 8/2 at one stage of the game.
Twitter went berserk on Kohli’s feat and congratulated him on the achievement. Former England skipper once again termed him as the best player in the world, in his tweet.

He's made 25 and there have been some incredible knocks in there but Kohli will remember this with great fondness. It is a very special hundred.

Only two visiting batsmen in the past 70 years have scored six Test hundreds in Australia; Kohli has just joined Tendulkar #AUSvIND — Adam Burnett (@AdamBurnett09) December 16, 2018
Congrats to @imVkohli on another magnificent 100. A completely different class to any other batsman playing international cricket & on the planet. An absolute joy to watch - well played ! India now have their noses ahead, 2nd new ball again an issue for the Aussies ! — Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) December 16, 2018
Former India batsman VVS Laxman too appreciated this innings by Kohli and said it was a 'special one'.
Has hit 25 so far in Tests and this has been one of the more special one from Virat Kohli. Not many adjectives can do justice to the skill, to the hunger and courage. #AusVInd

With this ton Kohli became the second quickest to 25 Test tons ever, after Sir Don Bradman.
Kohli has needed just 127 innings to reach 25 Test centuries. Only the great Don Bradman (68) has taken fewer innings to get to the landmark. #howzstat #AUSvIND LIVE ➡️ https://t.co/viG01Bpvlc pic.twitter.com/v2WDasqSYe — ICC (@ICC) December 16, 2018
What’s the difference between Virat of today and Virat of 4 years back. It’s the mind. His mind is a lot greater today than it was 4 years back. He is achieving even greater heights in tough conditions because he has been able to put mind over matter.👏👏👏🙏🙏#ViratKohli
