Pune: Indian captain Virat Kohli has managed to score well in the ODI, but lately he hasn’t been able to convert those innings in a century. Kohli, 32, is six centuries behind the 49ers in former drummer Sachin Tendulkar’s ODI. Kohli has marked 43 centuries so far. He last scored an unbeaten 114 against the West Indies in Trinidad on August 14, 2019. Since then, he has not scored a century in ODI with his bat.
Kohli has missed the century on several occasions
However Kohli (Virat Kohli) is averaging 45.85 and during that time he has scored eight half centuries in 14 innings. He has reached nearly a century several times, but missed a century. In the second game against England, Kohli scored 66 points and completed four consecutive half centuries in ODI. He scored 56 points in the first ODI against England. Previously, he had scored 89 and 63 on the Australia tour.
Will Kohli beat Sachin’s record?
From January 1, 2019 until August 12, 2019, Kohli had scored five centuries in 22 innings and by that time it looked like he would soon surpass Sachin Tendulkar (Sachin Tendulkar) record in ODI. Earlier in the 2018 calendar year, Kohli had scored six centuries in 14 matches. He scored six centuries in 26 ODI in 2017 and three centuries in 10 rounds in 2016.
Not a century after November 2019
In international cricket, Kohli failed to score a single century after November 2019. He scored a century against Bangladesh in a pink ball match. Kohli became the second player after former Australian batsman Ricky Ponting to score over 10,000 points while hitting at number three on Friday.
