Want to be a professional cricketer?
The present Indian captain Virat Kohli is a big name in international cricket. Many cricket experts believe that he is one of the greatest batsmen in world cricket history.
Kohli is one of the most consistent performers with the bat as he has set an incredible example as a batsman. His career stats tell enough story of this as his averages are more than 50 in every format of international cricket.
Due to the consistent batting performances, Kohli has now made a habit for thrashing the world-class records. When he now comes out with the bat, many historical records get threats.
However, there are some records in international cricket which are likely impossible for Kohli to break despite he is in the same genre (not taking bowling records). Let’s take a look on these records.
Here we are talking about seven records in international cricket which Virat Kohli can’t break
Fastest century in ODI
Virat Kohli’s strike-rate is good enough but not in the line of fastest batting. The right-handed batsman initially takes time to get settle down on the pitch, and he follows to bashing the bowlers mostly after becoming a set batsman.
Former South African cricketer AB de Villiers, who is also a good friend of Kohli due to playing together for the same IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), is holding the record of fastest ODI century. On 18th January 2015, during the Johannesburg ODI against West Indies, AB de Villiers scored a firing century in just 31 balls.
While it is very tough to beat even for any reputed power-hitters, nobody expects it from Kohli. Though Kohli is the fastest ODI centurion for India, hitting an ODI century in just 52 balls, it is not in the close position from the record.
