Virat Kohli Set to Surpass Sachin Tendulkar’s Record in the Upcoming ODI World Cup
Former captain Virat Kohli has emerged as the beacon of hope for Indian cricket as the nation gears up for the ODI World Cup in 2023. Despite a recent slump in form, Kohli’s resurgence has instilled confidence in fans once again.
Kohli’s leadership in the previous World Cup in 2019 couldn’t secure the coveted title for India. However, his pivotal role in India’s triumph in the 2011 World Cup showcased his prowess in the middle order. As the 2023 World Cup approaches, Kohli is sending out the same message of determination and passion.
In a recent Super Four match against Pakistan in the Asia Cup (2023), Kohli displayed a captivating performance by scoring a century. This brings him closer to an astounding milestone – his 47th century in ODI cricket at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. He is now just two centuries away from leveling with Sachin Tendulkar’s record of the most centuries in ODIs.
Can Kohli Surpass Tendulkar’s Record?
Sachin Tendulkar, revered as a cricket legend, has achieved a remarkable tally of 49 centuries in ODIs. If Kohli manages to score three more centuries, he can surpass Tendulkar and claim the top spot. Notably, former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth has already predicted that Kohli possesses the potential to match Tendulkar’s milestone.
With only four ODIs left to play before the World Cup, including the Asia Cup final, Kohli has a golden opportunity to achieve this feat. In an interview with Sports Keeda, Kohli confidently stated, “Virat Kohli will match or break Sachin’s record before the World Cup.”
Other Contenders and Kohli’s Upcoming Challenges
Apart from Tendulkar, two other distinguished cricketers are close contenders for this prestigious record. Kohli, in his illustrious career of 279 ODI matches, has amassed 47 centuries. Standing right behind him is Indian captain Rohit Sharma, with 30 centuries to his name. Additionally, former Australian captain Ricky Ponting also boasts an impressive record of 30 centuries.
India’s crucial ODI series against Australia, which takes place right before the World Cup, will undoubtedly test Kohli’s mettle. The first match of the series is scheduled for September 22, followed by encounters on the 24th and 27th. This series will provide an excellent opportunity for Kohli to surpass Tendulkar’s record if he maintains his top form.
The cricketing world eagerly awaits the 2023 ODI World Cup, where all eyes will be on Virat Kohli, the beacon of hope for Indian cricket. As he steers towards surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s illustrious record, the excitement among fans continues to grow. Will Kohli make history? Only time will reveal the answer.
Former captain Virat Kohli, who came back from a bad form, has again become the big hope of Indian cricket in a new ODI World Cup (ODI World Cup 2023). In 2019, under Kohli’s leadership, India could not win the title. Kohli played a significant role in the middle order when India won the World Cup in 2011. Again in 2023 when the World Cup will be held in India, Kohli is giving the same signal.
The player who scored a century against Pakistan in the Super Four match of the Asia Cup (Asia Cup 2023) has come close to a monumental achievement. Kohli’s 47th century in ODI cricket at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Only 2 more centuries needed to match Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most centuries in ODIs.
