Kohli’s ‘great century’ equals Sachin’s one more world record
This is not a very old thing. Just a few years ago, when the God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar (Sachin Tendulkar) used to come on the field, some record was made. However, time has changed so much that now whenever Virat Kohli does something good, some record of Sachin Tendulkar is broken, but something similar has happened once again.
Something similar has happened in the third match of the ODI series played between India and West Indies. Virat Kohli has scored a brilliant century in this match. With this, a record recorded in the name of Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli’s name was recorded again.
The third ODI between India and West Indies was played on Wednesday (August 14) at the Port of Spain. Batting first by winning the toss by West Indies. He scored 240 for 7 wickets in 35 overs. West Indies innings had to be stopped twice due to rain. Due to this, the match was reduced from 50-50 overs to 35-35 overs. The Indian team got a target of 255 runs to win under the Duckworth Lewis rule, which they achieved by scoring 256 runs for 4 wickets in 32.3 overs and won the match and series.
Kohli played an unbeaten innings of 114 off 99 balls. In this innings, Virat made 14 fours and his strike rate was 115.15. This has been Virat Kohli’s second consecutive ODI century and 43rd century. Virat has now scored 11,520 runs in 239 ODIs. He has come at number eight in terms of scoring the most runs. Sachin Tendulkar is at number one in this list with 18426 runs. Most ODI centuries are also recorded in the name of Sachin (49).
The special thing is that Virat has scored a century for the ninth time in ODIs against the West Indies. He is the first batsman to cross the 100-run mark 9 times against the Caribbean team. With this, Virat has also equaled Sachin Tendulkar’s record of making the most centuries against a team. Sachin Tendulkar has scored 9 centuries against Australia.Kohli’s ‘great century’ equals Sachin’s one more world record
