Virat Kohli is Back: How many days will Sachin Tendulkar’s great record remain?


New Delhi. Virat Kohli played a beautiful inning of 166 runs in the third ODI against Sri Lanka. He hit 8 tremendous sixes in his innings. With this one thing happened. If India wants to win the World Cup then this is what Virat Kohli needs. Not only Virat’s fans are saying this. This is also the opinion of those people who were advising Virat Kohli to be dropped from Team India a few months ago. Veteran cricketers, commentators to experts who gave such advice have now made a U-turn. Sensing the wind’s move, all these veterans have started creating ballads in Kohli’s glory.

However, leaving the trick of the wind, let us come to the facts. And the fact is that Virat Kohli has scored 4 centuries in the last 4 months. He has scored 3 centuries in the last 4 innings. Now he has 74 international centuries to his name. Virat has broken Sachin Tendulkar’s record of scoring most centuries against one country. Virat has now scored 10 centuries against Sri Lanka. Not only this, Virat has snatched the record of scoring most centuries in his country from Sachin. Now Virat has come at number five in terms of most ODI runs. Only Sachin Tendulkar, Kumar Sangakkara, Ricky Ponting and Sanath Jayasuriya are ahead of them. It will not be a big deal if Virat leaves behind Jayasuriya and Ponting and comes at number three in this list this year. He is the only batsman in the top 10 with an average of over 50…

There are many more such records. But in this video I am going to talk about that record of Sachin which is known as Maharecord. This great record of most centuries in ODIs is now in danger. Sachin has scored maximum 49 centuries in ODI cricket. Virat Kohli has come very close chasing it. King Kohli has scored 46 centuries in ODIs. That is, to match Sachin, he needs only 3 centuries. Kohli will break the master blaster’s record as soon as he scores his fourth century. Not only this, Virat’s fourth century will make him the first person on earth to score 50 centuries in ODI cricket.

Now this thing is not hidden from anyone that the year of 2023 is the year of ODI World Cup in cricket. For this reason, this year all the teams are going to focus on ODI cricket. Obviously India too. India will play at least 20 ODIs before the World Cup this year. The manner in which Virat Kohli has started the year, every Indian cricket lover is assuming that now Sachin’s record will not last for long. If the time from 2019 to 2022 is left out, when Virat was running away from centuries. So in the rest of the time, Virat has been scoring a century in every sixth innings on an average. In such a situation, it should not be a surprise if he breaks Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI centuries even before the World Cup. Keeping at least the World Cup in mind, every Indian would like Virat’s form to remain intact.
