Virat Kohli Responds To Question About Whether He Will Be Able To Break Tendulkar’s ODI Century Record

Published on 5 September, 2017 at 7:00 pm By

Virat Kohli might one day surpass Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the maximum number of ODI centuries. On Sunday, in the fifth and final ODI match against Sri Lanka, the Indian team captain slammed an unbeaten 110 to complete his 30th century.

He now equals Ricky Ponting’s record and shares the second place with the Australian legend in the list of maximum number of ODI tons.

Kohli is just 19 centuries short of Sachin’s record of 49. Given his age (Kohli is just 27), he is more than likely to equal the Master Blaster’s tally and, perhaps, break it.

Ever since he hit the 30th ton, reports comparing him with Tendulkar are doing the rounds. Many believe that Kohli will be able to break the record because he has slammed 30 centuries in just 9 years. Tendulkar played for 24 years to reach 49.

In fact, during the post-match conference, Kohli addressed the question on whether he will be able to shatter Tendulkar’s ODI record.



“The great man (Sachin Tendulkar) is quite a bit away. That’s going to take a hell of an effort. Again, I am not thinking about that. It’s only about the team where even if I score a 90 not out and the team goes across the line, it’s good enough for me.”

Kohli also responded to the comparisons. He said that he feels embarrassed when people compare him with Sachin.

He told India Today:

“Honestly I feel embarrassed. It is unfair and Sachin can’t be compared with anyone. Comparisons are not valid from my end. I have looked up to him but want to be myself and definitely draw inspiration from him. He is two levels above any player. Sachin was born with talent and I had to work for it.”

But he admits that statistics pop up once something is achieved and they are “hard to neglect”.
