Virat Kohli On The Verge Of Breaking Sachin Tendulkar Records Against Australia
Records and Virat Kohli always seem to be entirely in sync with each other. If you can take a spectator’s opinion or a diehard cricket fan they would say that Kohli made for breaking those boundaries that would seem astronomical for many players.
This machine is yet to churn out his level best, and one such opportunity appears to be knocking on his doors right now as they are already underway with their tour of Australia.
would be looking to dominate the record of the little master and the batting legend, Sachin Tendulkar’s of the most number of centuries at the Down Under.
The Little Master’s illustrious career spanned over two decades, and he remains one of the most iconic batting genii ever to walk the face of the earth.
But Virat Kohli is an altogether different force to comprehend, and he is out there for the kill, out there to break records. Sachin has played about 20 matches in the Down Under, and he has scored 6 test centuries. This is the most by any Indian player ever on the Australian soil who is followed by Sunil Gavaskar who scored five centuries and then VVS Laxman with four centuries.
Virat has amassed five centuries in 8 test matches in their home turf which is as astonishing as it is surprising and he is on par with the greats of this game. He also overtook Tendulkar by reaching the mark of 10,000 runs in the One Day Internationals.
Tendulkar has scored about 1809 runs in his overall career span in Australia averaging about 53.20. But Kohli has an astounding average of 62.00 in 8 test matches scoring 992 runs. It is a level unlike anything, and there might be no question about it that this tour would prove to be Kohli’s breakthrough among the hall fame of Cricket.
