Team India captain Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen of the current era. Kohli, who made his international debut for the first time in 2008, has made many great achievements in his career so far. In Test cricket, Kohli has scored a total of 7,240 runs in 86 matches and 11,867 runs in 248 ODIs.
In terms of centuries, Kohli has scored 27 percent in Tests and 43 percent in ODIs, soon to surpass the centuries-old record of former India captain Sachin Tendulkar. Today we will talk about the records that Kohli can make in the future!
Sachin’s most century record: Sachin Tendulkar’s first century on Kochi’s goal is a record for most centuries. Former Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar is the only player to have scored 100 percent, and Kohli, who considers him his ideal, is not far from Tendulkar. Kohli has a total of 70 international centuries and Virat is unlikely to reach the mega milestone.
Highest double century record in Tests: In one-day cricket, King Kohli has not yet crossed the 200 marks, but as his favorite form in Test cricket, Kohli specializes in scoring double centuries. The Indian captain has so far scored a total of 7 double centuries in 145 Test winnings. Kohli, who is currently at the top of his career, has plenty of time to achieve the record of scoring the most double centuries in Tests.
Most Test centuries as captain: Virat Kohli has scored a total of 20 centuries as captain in his Test career so far. This Indian batsman is 6 centuries away from the record of scoring the most Test centuries as a captain. The record is currently named after former South African captain Graeme Smith, who played 25 percent of the innings for his team as captain.
Record for most ODI tones as a captain: Along with Tests, Kohli is also the closest batsman to score more centuries in ODIs. Kohli has hit 21 percent as captain so far in his one-day career. The captain who has scored the most ODI centuries is former Australian batting legend, Ricky Ponting. Ponting scored 22 centuries in 230 ODIs. In such a scenario, Kohli will only be able to break this record on the upcoming tour of Australia.
Virat becomes the first Indian captain to score a triple century in Test cricket: Former opener Virender Sehwag and young Karnataka batsman Karun Nair have scored three centuries in Test cricket for India, but so far no Indian captain has crossed the 300 marks in Test form. But if any player can achieve that, he is the current India captain Virat Kohli. Kohli has already surpassed Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s record as the highest scorer in Tests as a captain, and now if he scores three centuries in Tests, he could become the first Indian captain to do so.
