- Who will be ahead, Virat or Sachin?
- Ricky Ponting made a big prediction
- Recently Virat hit 71st century
Virat Kohli: Team India’s legendary batsman Virat Kohli has once again returned to his dangerous form. Virat recently scored his 71st century in the Asia Cup. This century came after a long gap of three years. Virat is now behind only the God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar in terms of most centuries. Meanwhile, Australia’s legendary cricketer Ricky Ponting has given a big statement. Ponting has predicted whether Virat will ever be able to break Sachin’s record of centuries.
Ponting made a big statement
Considering Virat Kohli’s hunger for runs in the recent past, Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting said it is “possible” for the Indian superstar to surpass Sachin Tendulkar’s 100 international hundreds. Kohli recently ended his 1,020-day wait for his 71st international century by scoring an unbeaten 122 off 61 balls against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup.
Virat’s hunger for runs
Ponting, the two-time World Cup winning captain, said, “Look, I can never say to Virat that he will ‘never’ be able to do this because you know once he gets into a little bit of rhythm, he can go for runs. How hungry is he and how committed he is to success. I would never say a definite ‘no’ to him ever again. With his century, Kohli equaled Ponting’s 71 centuries. Now only Tendulkar is ahead of Kohli in scoring the most centuries.
Virat is only behind Tendulkar
Virat Kohli is now behind only Sachin Tendulkar in terms of most centuries. Sachin had scored 100 centuries in his career. Sachin has scored 51 Test centuries in Test and 49 centuries in ODI cricket. At the same time, Virat has hit 71 centuries so far. Virat has scored a total of 43 in ODIs, 27 in Tests and one century in T20 cricket. At the same time, Ponting has also scored 71 centuries in his career.
