Virat Kohli- Surging ahead with tons and records
Virat Kohli's 35th ODI century has placed him ahead of Sachin Tendulkar in the number of ODI centuries before turning 30.
In the sixth and final game against South Africa in the recently concluded ODI series, Virat Kohli made mincemeat of the Proteas bowling attack to score a whirlwind 129 off just 96 balls to complete a 5-1 demolition of the hosts. In the process, the touring side became the first Indian team to win a bilateral ODI series in South Africa. The three-figure mark at Centurion was the Indian captain's third in the series and 35th overall in the 50-over format.
Among the list of batsmen ODI with most hundreds to their name, Virat Kohli is already climbing his way to the top, currently only second to his predecessor Sachin Tendulkar who is has 49 centuries in format. At the rate at which the Indian skipper is going, it seems like it is a matter of time before he scales the peak, and with each ODI hundred, he is adding a new record to his name!
