Standing at 26 right now, in the near future, Virat Kohli may break Sachin Tendulkar's record of the maximum centuries in ODIs. Sachin's record is of 49 right now, but many batsmen have not even crossed the mark of 30 yet. All our hopes reside on Kohli to break this. Virat has swiftly crossed the initial milestones and has also broken Vivian Richards' record of fastest to 5000 ODI runs.
Virat Kohli can soon break Sunil Gavaskar's record of the most centuries in Test Cricket, which is of 11 centuries in 47 matches as the captain. Kohli has as of now, made six 100s in 17 matches as captain, at a much faster pace than his competitors and seniors. Great work, dude!
Virat Kohli has the potential to cross phenomenal Sachin Tendulkar's record of 96 half centuries in 463 ODIs with Ricky Ponting and Sanath Jayasuriya holding the second and third positions on the chart. We wish that Kohli surpasses them with his consistent form.
At present, Virat has made 7570 runs in his eight-year ODI career till now. We hope that he crosses the record of the batsmen such as Dhoni, Yuvraj and finally Sachin Tendulkar's, which is set at 18,426 in 463 matches. Although a long way to go before he breaks this record, we have fingers crossed for this achievement of his.
Currently held by Dhoni at winning 27 matches out of 60, Kohli may soon capture the record. Virat is at the score of 10 on 17 and has a higher success rate of 0.58 as compared to 0.45 of Dhoni. So, better chances for the man. Be consistent and perform Kohli.
Virat Kohli has the power to become the most awarded 'Man of the Match' in ODIs. His controlled aggression and being a fitness freak can make him acquire this title. As always, Sachin holds this record at 62 awards in 463 matches.
Presently, Kohli has the record of 4 awards in 40 series, while, the first rank is occupied by the very obvious Sachin Tendulkar of 15 awards in 108 series. Having a look at their ratios, Virat is not far behind. With, Sachin at 0.13 and Kohli at 0.1, we wish that Kohli covers the gap soon. We are cheering for you, Kohli!
With Kohli's bat performing as stupendously, we hope that Kohli surpasses the records of Sachin and Don Bradman in no time. Sachin is at 20 centuries against Australia in 110 matches in the first rank, and Don Bradman is at 19 centuries against England at the second rank, Kohli has complete chances to overtake these batting legends.
With a phenomenal average of 103.66 in T20Is in 2016, Kohli has all the qualities to get into the top 5 run-getters list by the end of the upcoming ICC World Cup T20, also surpassing McCullum and Chris Gayle. His average makes him one of the best contenders for this record. Brendon has set the benchmark at 2140 runs in 70 matches in T20Is.
With many more good years to come in his career, we have full confidence in our Test team captain that he will set even higher records for others to break. You have all the reasons to rise and shine like the Sun of the Cricket fraternity.
Many many happy returns of the day, Virat. We love you!
