India vs Australia: Top 4 men with most ODI hundreds in this iconic fixture
India vs Australia is not an emotional rivalry, it's an intense affair where two giants of the game collide for supremacy. The 2 elite teams have collided in numerous battles over the years and the fans of these 2 giants of international cricket relish the opportunity to witness this masterclass fixture of cricket.
It's no secret that these two nations put all in when playing against each other and it's the nerve-wracking moments, the pride at stake and most importantly the expectations over this very encounter that makes it a genuine treat for the fans and especially the players.
Here we rank down the top 4 men who have scored the most number of ODI centuries in the history of India vs Australia contests:
#4 Virat Kohli
The Indian team captain fancies playing against the team from Down Under as he has scored 6 centuries against Australia in ODIs. Considering Kohli's position in this team and his remarkable fitness regime, expect this number to increase any time soon.
Describing Virat Kohli in words is quite a task considering the man's achievements, his eye-popping numbers and more. Australia are no easy team to bat against, they never were and never will be. When we shed some light on Kohli's numbers against Australia, there is nothing else to do but applaud.
The Indian skipper has played in 32 ODIs against the Aussies and has consistently scored runs with the official number being 1379 till now.
His average in this fixture is laudable at a little over 51.
#3 Ricky Ponting
One of the greatest captains and batsmen the game has ever seen, Ricky Ponting has his name engraved in the history books of cricket. A 3-time World Cup winner, Ricky Ponting has truly done it all.
A name as massive as Ricky Ponting did strike fear in the opposition ranks and it's no secret that back in his day Ricky was known to be one of the most technically gifted, elegant and fearsome batsmen.
In his legendary career, Ponting enjoyed success against all nations in ODI cricket but there seemed one favourite of that we can't help but point.
The team we are talking about is Team India as the former Australian captain struck 6 tons in the 59 ODIs he played against them.
His tally of 2164 runs against the Men in Blue is mighty impressive.
