The Indian captain Virat Kohli has become 31-year-old on Tuesday (5th November). He is getting love and best wishes from the fans, families, friends and cricket fraternity. The legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar also wished the Indian captain in his style.
Sachin Tendulkar was one of the greatest batsmen in the cricket world. In his 24 years long international career, Sachin created many records in batting. Though he retired from the international cricket six years ago, Sachin is still holding the top most reputed records in both Test and ODI formats.
Sachin played the most number of international matches, including the record number of Test and ODIs. He is also the most Test and ODI run-scorer. No one is currently close to these records. Besides these, Sachin also hit the most number of Test and ODI centuries.
While Sachin reigned the world cricket in his style, Virat Kohli is imitating that reign in the present time. If there is anyone who can break Sachin Tendulkar’s top batting records, Kohli is on top of this shortlist. In fact, Kohli has put the serious danger on Sachin Tendulkar’s most number of ODI centuries record.
In his 200 ODIs, Sachin Tendulkar hit the record number of centuries which was 49. Virat Kohli is in the next position of this list as he has hit 43 centuries in just 239 ODIs. While Kohli is in a great form for a long time, we can expect that Kohli will surely break at least this special record.
Continue scoring runs and leading India with the same passion – Sachin Tendulkar on Virat Kohli
On his 31st birthday, Sachin Tendulkar wished to see Kohli’s continuous batting domination.
The Indian legendary cricketer Twitted, “Wishing you a very happy birthday Virat! Continue scoring runs and leading India with the same passion! All the best.”
At present, Virat Kohli is the no.1-ranked ODI batsman and no.2-ranked Test batsman.
