“Virat Kohli can break Sachin Tendulkar’s record of scoring 100 international centuries”: Irfan Pathan


Former Indian all-rounder, Irfan Pathan reckons that if there is any cricketer in the current era who can break Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 centuries in world cricket, then he is Virat Kohli. The Indian skipper has been the face the Indian cricket for the last half-a-decade.

I am sure 100 hundreds, he might not be talking about it but you know if anyone could achieve that feat, after Sachin Tendulkar he is the one. You know he has achieved so much with such little time and I hope if anyone breaks the records of 100 hundreds because I was part of Sachin’s journey when he scored that last hundred as well,” Irfan told on Star Sports’ show Cricket Connected.

But I always wish if anyone breaks the record he has to be an Indian and Virat has the ability and fitness, which is the most important thing to be able to achieve that feat. I think he is 30 short of that 100 hundreds, I think he will be able to achieve it before he retires and I hope so and that’s the target he will have in his mind,” he added.

Virat Kohli, currently, has 70 centuries to his name in international cricket- 27 in Tests and 43 in ODIs. He is 30 centuries away from matching Sachin Tendulkar’s record of achieving 100 centuries in international cricket. With age on his side, Virat Kohli is likely to surpass the feat if maintains his ongoing form for a few more years.

Virat Kohli, recently, landed UAE to join RCB’s squad for 2020 IPL, scheduled to start from 19th September 2020. He would be eager to put on a good show and get the coveted trophy home this time.
