ViratKohli is arguably the best batsmanin the world right now. His unprecedented record-breaking spree has put him well ahead of his contemporaries. Ever since Kohli has started his unprecedented century-making spree, the cricketing fraternity has been busy speculating whether he could go all the way and score 100 international centuries.

At just 29, the India skipper has scored a staggering 56 centuries in addition to smashing 62 fifties.

The batting star is already the second-highest centurion in One-day Internationals. In just 208 games, he has amassed 35 ODI centuries, going past the likes of Ricky Ponting, Sanath Jayasuriya, and Sourav Ganguly.

With age on his side, many feel that Kohli can go all the way and score 100 international tons.

Kohli has also scored a record six Test double centuries since becoming the captain.

On the similar lines, his performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL)is equally impressive.

In 2016, he had scored a staggering 973 runs with the help of scarcely-believable four centuries. Every now and then, Kohli proves his mettle in the IPL too.

However, there are a few records that the Royal Challengers leader may never break.

Here is a look at those five records:

5. Fastest fifty:

The record of fastest fifty belongs to Kohli’s ex-Royal Challengers’ teammate KL Rahul.

Currently playing for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), Rahul had smashed a 14-ball fifty against Delhi Daredevils (DD) to kickstart the eleventh season of the IPL.

On the other hand, Kohli, who is not the hardest hitter of a cricket ball, scored his fastest-ever fifty in 26 balls.

The right-handed batsman rarely goes for the big shots early on and loves to build his innings before going for the kill.

So, it is quite unlikely that he would score a fifty in such a quick time.
