Will Indian team’s veteran player Virat Kohli break the record of 100 centuries of Lord of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar? Former India coach Ravi Shastri has said that Virat Kohli, who broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 centuries in ODIs by scoring a century against New Zealand in the World Cup semi-finals, has the ability to break Sachin’s record of 100 centuries in international cricket. Is. The way Virat Kohli is playing, it seems that he will break Sachin’s record.
Sachin Tendulkar has scored 100 centuries in a total of 664 matches played in all three formats of Test, ODI and T-20 cricket matches. It took 24 years for Tendulkar to score 100 international centuries. Whereas Virat Kohli has scored 80 centuries in 15 years and 517 matches.
Virat Kohli has been playing cricket for the country for 15 years. His cricket career is still continuing. In such a situation, it is not wrong to say that he will make many more records in the future.
The possibilities are not over for Kohli yet. In the coming days, there is going to be a cricket match between many countries and Team India. There is a two-match tour of South Africa next month. Five matches are going to be played against England on home ground from January.
Next year, Team India will also host Bangladesh and New Zealand. Team India will also tour Australia for five test matches at the end of 2024. That means India will play 17 Tests in this period of 13 months. There is every possibility of Kohli also being a part of Team India.
However, everything will depend on Kohli’s performance. If Kohli continues to be in the form in which he is playing today, then there may be a possibility of completing the journey of 100 centuries.
Kohli has 80 centuries in his name in international cricket, including 50 in ODIs, 29 in ODIs and one century in T20 Internationals, and he is 20 centuries behind Tendulkar, whose record of 51 centuries in Tests and 49 centuries in ODIs.
Ravi Shastri in The ICC Review said that when Sachin Tendulkar scored 100 centuries, who would have thought that anyone would even come close to him? And he has scored 80 centuries. Of these, 50 centuries have come in ODIs. It sometimes seems beyond reality.
This former Indian all-rounder has said that nothing is impossible because such players who try to score a century score it very fast. You may get to see five more centuries in his next 10 innings.
